Hardliners in Pakistan issue “fatwa” on Cupid: Valentine’s Day declared “un-Islamic”

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

The Pakistani government has declared a jihad on Valentine’s Day according to a Daily Mail story.

In recent years, a growing number of young Pakistanis became enamoured with the day and its traditions. The growth in popularity of giving flowers and gifts caused alarm among hardliners who viewed it as an adulteration of their culture.

Last year, a court banned public celebrations saying it was against Islam and promoted Western culture.

This year, things got worse when the media’s regulatory authority, acting on a court order, instructed all communications outlets to refrain from promoting Valentine's Day.

If you’re an unapologetic romantic planning to defy the edict, beware of street justice of the kind that befell activist Sabeen Mahmud who staged a protest in Karachi to counter calls for a ban.

Pakistan is a world away, yet it was a Pakistani import to Canada, Liberal MP Iqra Khalid, who was responsible for the anti-Islamophobia motion M-103.

We still don’t have a definition for Islamophobia, so at some stage in the future, will an Islamist activist claim that Valentine’s Day celebrations are Islamophobic?

Happy Valentine’s Day any way, and don't take those heart shaped chocolates for granted!

Dirk, I think the Khalid family should return to Pakistan, without delay!

These are the ‘values’ the Liberals want to impose on Canada. Disgusting.

I will tell you one thing I mourn the day Khalid’s parents brought her to Canada. With daddy’s previous Muslim Brotherhood connections it never should have happened. Some vetting. We really need to tighten that up. I wonder if they all still have Pakistani passports?

So the Pakistani Government dose not approve of St Valentine. Strange; why is it that Pakistanis believe in Santa Claus, or at least they do when the come to Western Countries. Santa Claus comes to them every month when they go to pick up their Welfare Cheques. Using different Names, ID’s and and different locations, they collect more than one.

Islam is the most negative, oppressive, tyrannical, anti life cult! Everywhere Islam reigns/ invades, destruction, death, misery, hate, threats, oppression takes over. The more I think about it the more I understand Mohammed trudeau and his hate for we canadians and his zest for completely destroying us. He is a muslim , is surrounded by them, is advised by them and is completely immersed in their religion of hate and death. If he gets in again, we canadians are going to wish for death as we will be in a LIVING HELL UNDER ISLAM/SHARIA!

No wonder these Muslims are so angry at everyone, their cult like religion is so controlling and / or depressing.

Really well said David Menzies. Canada needs to wake up to the possibilities, hopefully before we have to suffer any of them via m 103 non compliance.
Islam is incompatible with western culture that’s about all there is to it. Anyone who fled Islamic oppression to come to Canada recognises that.

Longest running comic book in history, ‘The Islamic Guide for Death’ It has a dark sense of humor and one has to be pretty sick to appreciate it. Enjoyed by millions of the death cult, including our residential idiot Justin Trudeau.

What did they run out of heart shaped rocks to stone their women to death with?

Tammie,
Rather see that M103 bitch go right back to that sandbox paradise and take that sack of gender-less potato peel along with her
commented 2018-02-14 21:34:44 -0500
Does the concept of freedom appear anywhere in their antidiluvian politically inspired dogmatic ranting Quran?
I suppose they are free to kill infidels and rape and pillage other cultures. A rather morbid concept that seems to have escaped the brilliant minds of out Marxist Leader Trudeau.

Pakistan should be banning FGM; cousin marriages; wife beating; pedophilia; acid attacks; honour killings; hateful Imams etc…

ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION, IT IS AN OPPRESSIVE TOTALITARIAN POLITICAL MOVEMENT MASQUERADING AS A RELIGION, PERMITTING BEATING & STONING WOMEN TO DEATH, EXECUTING GAYS, KILLING MUSLIM WHO PREFER ANOTHER RELIGION & ALLOWING CHILD-BRIDE PEDOPHILIA, STARTING WITH THE CHILD ABUSER MOHAMMAD WHO MARRIED HIS YOUNGEST WIFE WHEN SHE WAS ONLY 6-YEARS OLD & HAD ONLY OFFICIALLY HAD FULL INTERCOURSE WHEN SHE WAS 9.

So pedophila is Islamic, as Gay execution and stoning women to death, so who cares what Islam thinks, they’re evil.
