No red Roses for Saudi Sweethearts.

Saudi Arabia’s religious police have banned red roses ahead of Valentine’s Day. Forcing couples in the conservative Muslim nation to think of new ways to show their love.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has ordered florists and gift shop owners in the capital Riyadh to remove any items colored scarlet, which is widely seen as symbolizing love, newspapers said.

“They visited us last night,” the Saudi Gazette quoted an unidentified florist as saying.

It is not unusual for the Saudi Vice squad to clamp down ahead of Valentine’s Day, which it sees as encouraging relations between men and women outside of wedlock, the newspaper said.

Saudi Arabia imposes an austere form of Sunni Islam which prevents unrelated men and women from mixing, bans women from driving and demands women wear a headscarf and a cloak.

some retards are just too dense to understand that this is not about valentines or roses. its more than that. its about the liberty to do as you wish. its about freedom of expression. its about having your own beliefs without being guilty of thought-crime or having the fear of arrest. its about being free from a cult that pervades into every part of one's life, giving control to a non-existent Being and chaining up our brains leading us to violate human rights.

personally if i had a time machine i'd invite all the islamic fundamentalists and send them to 7th century Mecca, which is where they want to be and where they deserve to be. leave the freeworld alone! as for the moderate tolerant muslims, i dont mind your beliefs as long as you limit them in your hearts and homes. happy valentines day everyone.

islam means submission NOT peace!

Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest - diderot

"I am a Saudhi girl and i want a rose." No you are not a Saudi girl. No Saudi girl would spell "Saudi" as "Saudhi". Get it, garudhiya guzzler?

It is not surprising to know that a single gesture of love is forbidden in Saudi Arabia. The saudi’s are known to use Islam (The Religion) for their benefit. Women are treated like saddlebags.. what more can anyone expect from a country like that??

As for encouraging relationship men and women out of wedlock.. Aren’t these Saudi Arabians the people who are still on this slave trade and buying Women.. The younger the better.. Buying small children and using these innocents for their pervert use? These heartless people who sell their own daughters like cattle’s to the highest bidder in marriage, not giving a second thought to their won flesh n bloods opinion.

So who these people to comment on the religious or morals of others?

It’s these pathetic Saudi’s who is making the religion sound loveless. Who are they to judge? It’s not only the Saudi who is supposedly to be descended from the Prophet or whoever.

Take it away from them and what would you find? Nothing just barbarians trying to survive this ever so quickly globalizing era. Still trying to maintain or rather keep to the old Islamic make believe tradition.

Lets not forget what really happened to the Saudi Girl who was gang raped but still was accused of encouraging. She was to be given 200 lashes and be imprisoned for 06 months for something which the lecherous men of this country did.

Why are red roses flown all the way from Paris to the palace of “harem” and to the access of the royal family? Why cant the normal citizen enjoy life? Why is the government banning the citizen from simple pleasures like this? Islam is for the namesake only. A frontline in order to keep their dictatorial ways.

SO what else can we expect from these backward barbarians.
