It’s all right to observe Valentine’s Day, says Khairy

KOTA BARU: Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin has joined in the chorus hitting out at PAS Youth’s plan to play moral police on Valentine’s Day, saying that as long as people are not committing sin, it was all right to observe the special day.

He said: “Yes, I’ve given my wife flowers and taken her for dinner on Valentine’s Day before. Sometimes, we even get jiggy with it. I am still a Muslim,” said Khairy in one of his tweets message yesterday.

When asked why Muslims need to celebrate love and affection specifically on Valentine’s Day, Khairy said: “If people want to do it because they feel it’s a nice occasion, as long as they are not committing sin, why not? Of course you can do it anytime. That’s not the point.”

Khairy cynically said the annual Jan 1 public holiday should be banned as it signifies the start of the Gregorian calendar introduced by Pope Gregory.

Tourism Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ng Yen Yen also chided moral policing on Valentine’s Day, saying that it would affect tourist arrivals to the country.

Dr Ng added that she had received hundreds of calls from overseas expressing alarm at PAS Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi’s comments.

“The callers were industry players concerned that such statements could cause fear or confusion among foreign tourists that it would make them think twice about promoting Malaysia.

“Why is there a need to have moral police putting fear in foreign tourists?” Dr Ng asked after attending a Chinese New Year event here yesterday.

Dr Ng, who is also Kelantan MCA chief, said this in response to Nasrudin, who reportedly said the state governments in Kedah, Kelantan and Selangor had directed the local authorities to work closely with the police and Rela to check immoral activities on Feb 14.

MCA central committee member Loh Seng Kok had also criticised Valentine’s Day comments made by Muslim preacher and motivator Siti Nor Bahyah Mahamood’s on TV9’s Halaqah programme

She is reported to have said that “immoral activities, discoing, couples meeting in private, are traditions of the Christian community.”

Loh described her remarks as “hopelessly baseless” and “spewed on personal conviction that is ignorant and prejudiced”.

Loh urged Siti Bahyah to apologise to the Christian community.
