-Bangalore,India: A Threat Against Celebrating Valentine’s Day?

by Dr. D ~ February 10th, 2009

image Last year we wrote about how some Muslim countries reacted against Valentine’s Day– here and here.

This year an anti-Christian activist group in Bangalore, India is threatening action against all those who celebrate the ‘Christian Holiday’- Valentine’s Day. The radicals consider the holiday an affront to traditional Indian culture and religion. Found this on the Persecution Blog–here’s a link to the original story.

The radicals are actually serious in calling Valentine’s Day–“a Christian conspiracy”.

Response: It used to be called Saint Valentine’s Day but long ago lost any religious significance. Valentine’s Day is now merely a Western cultural event that seems to have gained favor around the world.

A ‘Christian’ conspiracy? More likely a conspiracy of greeting card companies and florists! LOL. However it is not really a laughing matter since these activists are serious about using this cultural event as an excuse to persecute Christians.            *Top

    Um your picture is wrong, and youve got the whole story wrong.

    Indians arent against valentines day its the MUSLIMS that are and muslims arent true indians, the picture you posted is NOT in India its in Pakistan. Look at the writing on his paper? thats obviously not India. Look at his face- hes not Indian. NO indian are against valentines that much theyd start burning paper and saying its a christian conspiracy, Youve got it all wrong. india is no way an islamic country and it seems your ignorance and retardedness has made ur post full of bs. Indians arent banning valentines day they just think it should be to worship and show thanks to your parents instead of to someone else.

    Please research before making these false posts which have nothing to do with India.

    Kqk: Thanks for your comments, we are always concerned about the accuracy of our reports so we researched it once again. The original story comes from IBN an India news network, here’s a link to a video of the original story: http://www.ibnlive.com/videos/india/muthalik-jacketed-renuka-sot-307871.html

    The story is 7 years old and was posted on this website in 2009, nevertheless there continues to be a number of very good news sources to support it.
    Your comments about the picture do seem to have merit however.

    The story was also carried by the following:

    -UK Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/india/4447238/Hindu-extremists-will-attack-Valentines-Day-couples.html

    and -The India Times -though the pictures no longer seem to be easily available: Ram Sene warns against celebrating Valentine’s Day also …
