    Valentine’s Day: No love in Pakistan, what about India?

    Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority has banned television channels and radio stations from broadcasting programming related to Valentin's day in compliance with Islamabad High court order.
    No event shall be held at any places-court order issued.
    Celebrations of Valentine's Day is spreading 'immorality, nudity and indecency' in Pakistan.
    In 2013, a social activist Ms Sabeen Mohamud held a 'Pyar ho Jaane do' movement to counter the ban on the celebration. She was shot dead in 2015.
    What about India?
    Will the fringe groups allow love to happen in India this time?
    What is your opinion?
    Anyway, wishing all of you a loving Valentine's Day!

    India is full of love! The brutal murder of Ankit Saxena is Delhi by the love-jehadis proves this. (Un)happy Valentine's Day (due to this ghastly murder).

    Some people are so enthusiastic about celebrating Valentine's Day that they have started wishing three days in advance.

    Non-violence is the greatest Dharma; So too is all righteous violence.

    If it happens in India many people start criticising the central government and they say India is becoming intolerant. So nobody in government will do this.If any person goes to court and if the court says that it should be celebrated then only it will stop in the country. Otherwise, no one can stop these activities in our country.

    It is not surprising to hear this from across the border as we had statements issued by many groups ahead of Valentine's Day. What we call as Moral Policing seems to be formalized by the media regulatory authorities.
    In India, we've had token protests and arrest reported from few cities, including a marriage between a dog and a donkey in Chennai!

    India government cannot stoop to the level of banning love in private lives of Individuals. What even the fringe groups have been insisting that make love, but not in public. If you like each other, get married and live happily and no one shall interfere. The action of Pakistan government needs to be appreciated that in that country the Shariat law wont allow such love making in public and hence the clerics must have prevailed upon the government to enact a strict law not celebrating the valentine day. India is the peace loving nation and this country gives room for every one to enjoy and fallow their way of living and faith but not with disturbing intentions of others.
