Valentine's Day celebrations banned in Pakistan

A ban has been imposed on Valentine’s Day celebrations across Islamic country Pakistan, by the Islamabad High Court on Monday.
The order came during the hearing of a petition arguing that the day was not part of Islamic tradition and should be banned, the Dawn reported.
The court order bans Valentine’s Day related festivities in public places. The electronic and print media have also been told not to give coverage to any promotion of the day.
Last year, President Mamnoon Hussain urged Pakistanis not to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
