Feel the love burning hate

Seems that all is not hearts and flowers in the world:
Conservative forces in the Middle East and South Asia have cracked down on shops marketing Valentine's Day.

In the Indian capital, Delhi, several people were reported injured when stores selling romantic cards and gifts were attacked by right-wing militants.

Police in Iran, meanwhile, are reported to have closed several shops in Tehran, while religious groups in Pakistan have held protests against the 14 February celebration.

In Pakistan, fundamentalist students condemned Valentine's Day as a day of shame and lust.
Wow. Sounds like they need a date.
