Indonesian Muslim leaders afraid of Valentines Day

Via Bangkok Post:

The deputy mayor of Depok in West Java has called on parents in the city to tell their children not to celebrate the “day of love”  and instead concentrate on more religious activities.

Idrus Abdul Somad said that parents should take their children to Islamic events on Valentine’s Day, such as celebrating the birth of the Prophet Mohammed.

“Those who love the disciple are good people,” Mr Idrus was reported to have said on Tuesday, according to the Jakarta Globe.

“Many people translate Valentine’s Day as expressing [love] to their lover.

“Therefore please forbid your children from celebrating Valentine’s Day.”

The secretary of the Depok chapter of Nahdlatul Ulama, Indonesia’s largest Islamic organisation, also called on Muslims to not celebrate the day.

“Valentine’s Day is often misunderstood by teenagers as the moment to express love and affection which ends up to a sex party,” Raden Salamun Adiningrat said.

Now it is Valentine’s Day that is “culturally unequal”

Via Fox News:

Boys and girls at a Massachusetts elementary school have been banned from bringing Valentine’s Day candy or cards over cultural equality issues and federal guidelines regulating candy.

Parents of students at Salemwood Elementary School in Malden, Mass, received a letter informing them of the policy – that impacts not just Valentine’s Day – but all holidays.

“We have many different nationalities, cultures and languages spoken,” Principal Carol Keenan told Fox News. “Because of that we don’t honor specific holidays.”

Keenan said she did not want some students feeling left out.

“This is done with all good intentions – to have all students be accepted, to have all students feel like they belong,” she said.
