Is this our tradition?

If we talk about the conventions and customs, they expose off one nation’s fundamentals and ethics. Now if we look into the moral codes of Muslims, there is no space for any reprehensible and discreditable acts and Valentine’s Day is among one of them.

What is Valentine’s Day? A day to celebrate an illegitimate love, to mislead your own parents or a day to recline for the so called dates, which option will we choose for us? To celebrate this westernized mores and to be called as a modern civilization our own private channels has started programs a week ago and to grab the attention of public they have started doing draws for the dinners and Valentine’s Day special cakes. Where we are standing? Do we have any justification for that? While browsing, I got some images of the gift stores and greetings galleria, fully loaded with red hearts, gifts, chocolates and blah blah…

After watching these snaps, the question arises in my mind; does our inflation rate allow us to devastate money on these stuffs?

To persuade and mislead the youth, there are many restaurants around the city who especially arrange the candle light dinners for young couples to make their so called date.

When the people of a country is starving, deprived of basic needs, at that time our prideful masses wasting their time and money as well in such ridiculous acts.

And beside all the discussions, does our religion allow us for these kinds of illicit celebrations? Think about it, if you are a Muslim.
