COMMENTS BELOW BY SOME AMERICANS AND OTHERS AFTER RELEASE OF NEWS BY CNN ABOUT BAN ON VALENTINE’S DAY IN PAKISTAN:
Who cares, it’s their country. Their laws and ways. Hope we don’t bomb them over this.
Great idea. It’s a ridiculous ‘holiday’. Shouldn’t you show your love for someone every single day?? It’s a “Hallmark” holiday meant to pump billions of dollars into the economy…

Well done, Pakistan! We are sick of importing western consumerist celebrations.
*shrugs* I wish our country would do the same. It’s a stupid marketing day, nothing more. If you need a day to remind you to show love and affection, something wrong with you.
You can’t ban love, but seriously, the day is a cash cow where cards, flowers, chocolates raised through the roof-packed restaurants with triple the price. A cabby once told me no one wants to ride on this day as there’s 90% arguments between couples on the way back.
