This was uploaded July 9 2012 but it was filmed February 14 2012.
I posted it because its such a ludicrously dishonest protest that it borders on funny. First of all, the cards and signs are written in English, not any of the languages common to Pakistan. Secondly, Valentines day is a Western artifact. If they don’t like it they just have to continue to not do it. So the protest has nothing whatsoever to do with this or that holiday or the associated greeting cards. It is a silly attempt to heap scorn and contempt on the west in general.
It might also be worth pointing out that the only women allowed to voice an opinion in Muslim societies, are the ones who are more extreme about Islam and its values than the average man. Then of course they can be paraded out front to try and shame the west in some way or any potential suffragettes that might exist at home. So that is why we see them now and again. If a woman wishes to be politically active and public (as much as a cloth sack can be) she has to represent one opinion and one only. She has to be demanding her own repression.
Eeyore for Vlad.
