Islamabad: Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain has urged people of the country not to observe Valentine’s Day, saying that it was not a part of Muslim tradition but of the West, the media reported on Saturday.
“Valentine’s Day has no connection with our culture and it should be avoided,” Hussain said on Friday while addressing an event.
He said the drawbacks of western culture had adversely affected one of our neighbouring countries.
On Thursday, local council bodies in Peshawar and Kohat also banned Valentine's Day celebrations on Sunday.
