Amritsar 12 Feb:(GS Chhina)
Activists of Shiv Sena raised Anti Valentine's Day slogans during a protest in Amritsar's busy Lawrence Road.
Activists stated that Valentine's Day was not in accordance with Indian culture and westernization of Indian culture will be destructive for Indians.
Saint Valentine's Day, commonly known as Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine is observed on February 14 each year.
It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them. The most popular martyr logy associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire; during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius. Legend states that before his execution he wrote "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her.
