Those jaded or jilted by love aren't the only ones who hate Valentine's Day. A group of extremist Indian Hindus is down on love as well.
The group, called Shiv Sena, sees Valentine's Day as an immoral celebration and an incursion of Western values upon their own. So on February 14th they held demonstrations, burning Valentine's Day cards and, in a masterful showing of their personification skills, shouting "Death to Valentine's Day!"
That's showing us decadent Western folk!
Not to be outdone by their longtime foes, Muslims in Kashmir (the scene of disputes between Indian Hindus and Pakistani Muslims) interrupted romantic dinners with admonitions to the amorous.
For some cultures, the West has become a scapegoat for all that is wrong in the world. But I won't take any criticism from people who physically attack others for public displays of affection (as practiced by some Hindus), or who kill people and destroy property over, say, a satirical cartoon (as, well, you know that story...).
People like this have no moral authority, nor any hint of tolerance, reason or restraint in their hearts. When looking for "wrong" they need look no further than in the mirror.
