Call for ban on Valentine’s Day

 KUWAIT CITY, Feb 12: Head of Da’wa and Islamic Sharia Orientation Unit in the Social Reforms Society Dr Essa Al-Zafiri has advised the public to be aware of the dangerous repercussions of adopting non-Muslim practices and celebrations, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

Al-Zafiri also condemned the media hype on such celebrations by inciting people to exchange gifts or SMS on Valentine’s Day — a practice that originated from Rome.  He attributed the spread of such practices in Muslim communities to the alleged loss of the Islamic identity amongst some of them.  He said celebrating occasions which are not part of Islam is considered an imitation of the West.

He also appealed to the media to refrain from misleading the people, pointing out that the concerned authorities must take serious measures to ban celebrations which are not part of Kuwaiti traditions and customs.
