Malaysia has stepped up a campaign to stop Muslims celebrating Valentine's Day - labelling it a "trap" that could encourage immoral behaviour.
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said Monday's celebration of romantic love was "not suitable" for Muslims.

everywhere - and it is a HUGE business...
Many funny manga drawings about Valentines Day....
Malaysia is not so friendly and open-minded about Valentines Day - Malaysia is not Japan.
But only Muslims can be arrested, as Valentines Day is related to Christianity and therefore against Sharia.
(this article is from 2011, one year ago...)
Officials arrested more than 200 Muslims for celebrating Valentine's Day, the department said in a statement, without elaborating.
It said 80 of them would be charged in the Shariah Court for defying the department's ban against the celebration of lovers' day.
