Campaign Against Cupid Targets Malaysia's Muslims

Ah yes, the evils of valentines day, men, women, dating(And maybe sex)

It's disgusting and should be banned!(SARC OFF)

One of the biggest problems in Muslim countries is that instead of letting nature take it's course, they prefer to stifle it.
It is why they are so uptight about everything!

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- Malaysian Muslims debated Sunday whether to shun Valentine's Day after the government warned that the celebration was a "trap" that could trigger indecent behavior.

Although no laws prevent Malaysia's Muslim majority from marking the occasion with dinner dates and roses, officials have mounted a campaign insisting that such romantic gestures might tempt young people into having premarital sex.

Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said late Saturday that the government was not trying to demean Valentine's Day, but stressed that it was "not suitable" for Muslims, who comprise nearly two-thirds of Malaysia's 28 million people.

His comments came after the government-run Malaysian Islamic Development Department, which handles religious policies, launched a publicity campaign Friday called "Mind the Valentine's Day Trap" and handed leaflets advising Muslim university students to avoid Monday's celebration.
