Valentine’s Day Parties Discouraged

Some strict Muslims in Malaysia would like Muslim youth to stop celebrating Valentine’s Day. They believe the celebrations are against Muslim teachings and lead people to sin. Others in Malaysia think that nothing is wrong with the celebrations. Every year as Valentine’s Day approaches, people on both sides of the issue present their ideas in newspapers and other media.

Strict Muslims in several other countries also try to discourage people from observing the day. Last year, Valentine’s Day was banned in Iran. The government made it illegal to print or produce Valentine’s Day cards and gifts with pictures of hearts on them.
