The Islamabad High Court has no chill. In perfect timing, it’s banned all forms of Valentine’s Day celebrations, just hours after we got confirmation that a note in the name of Shehbaz Sharif against Valentine’s Day celebrations was fake AF. A day before the most romantic day of the year, we’re no longer allowed to express anything remotely lovey-dovey, not only on social media but in all public places.
I think they’re being utterly ridiculous, but that’s my personal (and sane) opinion.
Some agree that banning a day for love is outright unjust. There are bigger problems in Pakistan than Valentine’s Day.
In Pakistan processions from banned militant orgs & hate speech is welcomed. But expression of love is against its values. #ValentinesDay

Taking the kids out to celebrate the 14th could be something couples with children do…because…well…
Why is it so odd to go out for fine dining with your kids on #valentinesday

Some think banning one day out of the year will stop Pindi boys from being their usual creepy self…
Wesay I think #valentinesday shld be strictly banned in colleges/unis in Pk. It is used as an excuse to harass girls by every maila.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Oh wait sorry, can’t say that anymore. Thanks Islamabad High Court.
What do you guys think about the ban? Is it justified?
