Tough love for Muslims on Valentine's Day

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Jamil Khir Baharom has urged state Islamic religious departments to act against Muslims celebrating Valentine’s Day.

“We are moving simultaneously across the country to enforce regulations,” he told reporters after a ceremony to present aid to mosques in Negri Sembilan by Menteri Besar Mohamad Hasan in Seremban today.

He said that various forms of preaching, advice, opinion and statements on  Valentine’s Day had been made because it is not the practice for Muslims.

“We fear that the love being celebrated by couples are not in the sense of husband and wife. Other than giving advice, we also have to act,” he added.
