India and Pakistan Valentine's Day protests

3 hours
First broadcast:
Thursday 14 February 2013

Join the discussion with Nihal at 10. He's asking, do you understand why some Indians and Pakistanis object to Valentines day? People are being warned about "The Moral Police" targeting lovey dovey couples in India, meanwhile Pakistani media have been warned to stay away from valentines day content to "avoid upsetting religious sentiment". Is Valentines an Un Asian celebration to be avoided or just a bit of fun? Should we be encouraging young British Asians to send their Valentines chocolates and cards? After 11, Hannana Siddiqui from The Southall Black Sisters talks about the points she raised at the Rape Crisis Conference. She said, Asian culture is partly to blame for the horrific rape case in Delhi and the grooming cases in Rochdale, do you agree? And after mid day, Twin Beatz talk about their track Lok Boliyan, which is Nihal's Track of the Week.
