The Islamabad High Court in Pakistan’s capital has issued an order banning the celebration of Valentine’s Day across the country with immediate effect.

It has prohibited all public celebrations and any media coverage because the celebration is not part of Muslim traditions.

The ruling was handed down by the Islamabad High Court, following an unsuccessful attempt to ban the festival last year.

It also directs the media not to promote or cover Valentine’s events.

The orders were a response to a private petition which argued that Valentine’s Day was contrary to Islamic teaching.

According to the Dawn newspaper, the petition argued that the festival promoted immorality, nudity and indecency under the cover of spreading love.
