Pakistanis are an inventive nation. We’ve all had enough proof to believe this up till now, but this time we have come up with an all new, all innovative twist on the old Valentine’s Day.
In an Islamic masterstroke, Twitteratis have decided to replace the concept of this day for love, into a day for good old-fashioned ‘Haya‘ meaning modesty, calling it Haya Day…Now that’s something truly original…no? While many may agree we are charting some of the tweets by desi Twitter as to Haya Day needs to be observed instead of Valentine’s day!
Say ‘NO’ to Valentine’s Day, obviously

Haya is a woman’s adornment and it is this sacred hijab that gives her. Modesty is part of faith. Hijab is pride. No Valentine’s Day, we are Muslims and we celebrate February 14th as the Haya Day.#HayaDay#اسلام_شرم_و_حیا_کا_پیکرpic.twitter.com/C8IAGwOiy1

It is ‘Haraam’!
Thus, there is no mere choice between following the Sunnah and not following it. It has been sent down as part of revelation; thus, it must be adhered to in full. #اسلام_شرم_و_حیا_کا_پیکر@Pak_Guardian@PakWarriors_pic.twitter.com/Dy8lsJU733

Ofcourse, It’s a Western Propaganda

A perfect example of pseudo-religiosity that is unfortunately too common in our part of the world. While love shouldn’t be confined to one day, does it hold true to observe Haya Day to promote modesty only on a specific day?
