Reader comment on item: Valentine's Day in Mecca
in response to reader comment: Hey Debanjan, celebration of love is universal and Western or Eastern!!!!

Hi Mr. Jaladhi,

I understand your position on love. This festival of Valentine's day is a pagan festival. The imperial west is trying to impose it on the Muslims. Tell me clearly what the people of Gaza or the people of Afghanistan can celebrate in this western festival ?

I hope you understand that the west has caused a lot of suffering in the Muslim world in the last decade and now it wants to steal Muslim world's money by imposing this kind of festivals.

Come on man , I do not find your explaination satisfactorily.
