14 Feb 2011 – Happy Valentine’s Day
Kuala Lumpur: As couples around the world ready for Valentine’s Day, Islamic officials in Malaysia have warned Muslims against celebrating something ‘synonymous with vice activities’.
The warning follows plans announced last week by several Malaysian states who are planning a crackdown on ‘immoral acts’ during Valentine’s Day as part of a campaign to encourage a sin-free lifestyle.
‘In reality, as well as historically, the celebration of Valentine’s Day is synonymous with vice activities,’ Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz, head of the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim), which oversees the country’s Islamic policies, told state media…
Sin-free lifestyle… can someone please give a satisfactory definition of that? Since when is showing love and appreciations to people you love considered vice activities?? Am I missing something or just lost in translation???
