Don’t Be My Malaysian Valentine

From THE MALAYSIAN INSIDER:

Ahead of Valentine’s Day tomorrow, the Selangor Islamic authorities are on a drive to remind Muslim youth about a religious edict, or Fatwa, forbidding them from celebrating it. State mufti chief assistant Mat Jais Kamos said the authorities did not want Muslim youth to get caught up in Valentine's Day.

“The celebration emphasises the relationship between two individuals rather than the love between family members or married couples," the New Straits Times quoted him as saying as department officials distributed leaflets outside a Shah Alam secondary school to remind Muslims of the 2006 ruling issued by the state fatwa council.

Oh, for goodness sake! The chief Mufti has got the whole thing completely wrong. He shouldn't have signed the leaflets telling the youth not to celebrate Valentine's Day. The whole point is it's supposed to be secret.

  1. “The celebration emphasises the relationship between two individuals rather than the love between family members or married couples,”

    Allah preserve us, Chicken-Egg. It’s the relationship between two individuals which leads to married couples which (in turn) produces more family members, numbskulls!
