      A Saudi newspaper reports that The Authority for Enjoining Good and
      Preventing Evil has given retail outlets there three days to rid themselves
      of Valentine's Day paraphernalia, AFP says.

      Non-Muslim events such as Valentine's Day cannot, officially, be celebrated
      in Saudi Arabia.

      Patrols have been organised to enforce the ban.

      Last year the Hindu Shiv Sena party took part in violent protests against it,
      calling it cultural pollution from the West.

      This year the group has held demonstrations in Delhi, burning Valentine's
      cards and labelling 14 February a cultural invasion from the West.
