Valentine’s Day A Conspiracy Against Islam

From those romantics at the AFP:


Activists of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, or Daughters of Faith stand outside a restaurant in Srinagar to prevent young Muslim couples from meeting on Valentine’s Day, an event it denounced by as “anti-Islamic.”

Kashmiri separatists raid restaurants on Valentine’s Day

SRINAGAR, India (AFP) — A Kashmiri Islamic women’s group Thursday raided restaurants to prevent young Muslim couples from meeting on Valentine’s Day, an event it denounced by as “anti-Islamic.”

We have formed a number of squads to educate young couples that Valentine’s Day is a Western conspiracy to involve Muslims in vulgar activities,” said Nahida, a member of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, or Daughters of Faith, as she took part in a swoop on a restaurant in Srinagar.

The women’s group, all covered from head-to-toe, did not encounter any resistance as couples patiently listened to them and left restaurants.

Nahida, who did not give her second name, said such “peaceful raids” were being conducted across Srinagar, Muslim-majority Indian Kashmir’s summer capital.

Thanks to Allah, no one sold Valentine’s Day cards in Srinagar this year,” she said.

Last year dozens of activists marched through Srinagar and burnt Valentine’s Day cards.

“Valentine’s Day is against our culture and Islamic teachings,” Nahida told a couple inside a restaurant as police watched from a distance…

Ah yes, some more of that famed tolerance from a religion that considers love to be a psychological disease.

Of course it’s all a Western conspiracy against Islam. What isn’t?

(Honestly, would you have even believed this was real just a few years ago? Thanks again, Islam.)
