Valentine's Day Celebrations Lead To Alcoholism, Abortion & Fraud, Warns Malaysian Islamic Watchdog

Indulging in Valentine’s Day celebrations can lead to alcoholism, abortion, fraud and baby-dumping, Malaysian Muslims were warned on Friday.

The Malaysian Islamic Development Department (JAKIM) issued an official sermon describing how the occasion could lead young Muslims in particular, to a life of vice.

"Social ceremonies such as this are a stepping-stone towards greater social ills such as fraud, mental disorder caused by alcohol, abortion and baby-dumping, and other negative ills that can invite disaster and moral decay among youths," it said, according to an AFP translation.
