friends, here in india there is a hindu religious group is there, name is bhajarang dhal. It is opposite to Valentine day, http://www.fullhyderabad.com/hyderabad-news/valentines-day-in-hyderabad-bajrang-dal-begins-threats-297 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bajrang_Dal IF ANY TWO (BOY N GIRL) PERSONS ARE APPEARED TO THEM OUTSIDE, THEY JUST DIRECTLY DO MARRIAGE TO THEM. And they never think that whether they are brother-sister, or friends or any other relations.... It is so vulgar. I fully opposite to this. And they are saying that "we are hindus, we have to stop that foreign culture". But in my openion valentines day is the symbol of LOVe. Every human have a right to express their love. Friends do you support me...? If you are not supporting me, tell me y?

hi rameshchow I agree fully with you that Valentines day is a good thing where boyfriend and girlfriend or husband and wife have a God given right to express our love for each other. and also love between family members and friends too. its just a lovely day for all. Why is it wrong in that sect's eyes and why force people to marry if they are brother and sister, thats just disgusting..You know really with the world becoming smaller due to electronics we must try to get along with one other in all cultures and not do this stop foreign culture bit.Really like the song "it's a small world after all" we must not think like that, we are all human beings and should accept each other's ideas and cultures.

Okay, that's ridiculous. Men and women, and boys and girls, can be together, without being married. I have a boyfriend, and we are not married, and we go out in public all of the time, we have held hands in public, kissed and hugged in public, we have shown a lot of PDA or "Public Display of Affection". I have several man friends, and we are just that, FRIENDS! We talk to each other, give each other advice, and encourage each other, but that's all that we do. People have the right to be friends with one another if that is what they want, and they have the right to show their love for each other in public if that is what they want. Imagine what a wonderful peaceful world this would be if we could all just love.

You don't have to conform to this. Education, fight back against it. Amass a large amount of people who don't like this and think that it is ridiculous stand up against those people and tell them to stop. You guys don't have to put up with that. You don't.

I normally respect all cultures and beliefs but this bhajarang dhal sounds like a tyrannical bunch to be honest with you. Whether one likes to celebrate Valentine’s Day or not is irrelevant because it is a day when some people like to celebrate the love they have for one another. Now what could possibly be wrong with that? If you tell me that Valentine Day is too commercial I will agree with you wholeheartedly but if a boy wants to pick a flower for a girl and tell her he loves her I say it’s lovely and why not...So yes I support your point of view for sure rameschchow...

Whatever....that has been going on for a few years. Every year, one or the other group will oppose something or the other. I guess that is what makes India, India. 'Moral Police' I call them. They've got too much time on their hands. Saying 'We are Hindus, we have to stop that foreign culture' shows their ignorance. India is a secular country, therefore, different religions. India is not made up of just Hindus. There are Christians, Muslims, Bhuddhists, etc,etc Oh Boy....let me stop before I stop making sense.
