Agent rulers are thrusting the Kufr holiday of ‘Valentine's Day' upon the youth
Following the footsteps of Pervez Musharraf, the "enlightened democrat" rulers are forcibly imposing the western kufr holidays such as the ‘Valentine's Day' upon the Muslim youth of Pakistan. And a free license has been granted to the western multinational companies, restaurants and media outlets to promote free mixing and sexual perversion under the guise of celebrating the day. At the same time, any call against this immorality is immediately dubbed as "extremism". Today, when our sons and daughters have collectively rejected this kufr holiday, why is it that the government is insisting on projecting a very small westernized minority as an ideal for the youth to follow? Whether one looks at the history of ‘Valentine's Day' or ignores it, this is aptly clear that it has nothing to do with the Islamic civilization.
Islam organizes the relationship of man and women through the institution of marriage; after this clear injunction of Islam, what the excuse does the government have for celebrating such an immoral festival on state television, radio and universities? In the West on Valentine's Day, students unions distribute free contraceptives, alcohol prices are reduced and a wave of sexual promiscuity erupts. This is the society which our rulers, blind followers of the west, wish to create in this country. The fruits of this sexual perversion are spread everywhere in the west; where the fatherless children are involved in drugs, gangs and criminal activities.
AIDS is hollowing the society from within and a woman is dishonored every few minutes. Whilst the torment of the last day that awaits these followers of Satan is even worse. Allah (swt) said in the Quran;
[وَلَا تَقْرَبُوا الزِّنَا إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاءَ سَبِيلًا]
"Nor come near to adultery: for it is a shameful (deed) and an evil, opening the road (to other evils)." [TMQ Sura Isra'a:32]
Thus by virtue of this ayah, not only adultery rather any action that leads towards this wicked act also becomes Haraam. ‘Valentine's day' and similar festivities are created for the sake of depravation and degradation of the society.
We call upon all Muslims especially the youth to boycott this government backed kufr holiday and raise their voice against it. Hizb ut-Tahrir strongly condemns this ‘malicious attack' by the government on our youth and warns the rulers that the Ummah is coming close to Islam with each passing day and such lowly tactics will fail to distance the Muslims from Islam. This Ummah is soon going to take its affairs in its own hands by re-establishing the Khilafah "Caliphate", a matter that will cause huge grief and regret to these rulers and their masters. No doubt, that day will be very heavy for these rulers and their masters.
