Banning Valentine's Day

Hardcore fundamentalists and religious hindu zealots such as Pramod Muthalik have begun an organized and often compulsive drive to oppose Valentine's Day. The reason is that Valentine's Day is a bad western influence on the moral standing of the Indian society and thus must be banned. So Pramod Muthalik and his group called Sri Ram Sena (Army of Lord Ram - a Hindu God) has come to the forefront of spearheading the public repulsion of Western culture.
