Andrabi told reporters: “Ours is a Muslim society and Islam does not permit vulgarities like Valentine’s Day celebrations or exchange of greetings between unmarried boys and girls on any occasion.”

The group has been responsible in the past for closure of many beauty parlours in the city. Its activists have also been engaged in campaigns asking local women to wear the burqa in line with the Islamist traditions.
