Lucknow University to retract Valentine’s Day diktat: SourcesAccording to sources, Lucknow University is in the process of withdrawing its advisory on Valentine’s Day.
Lucknow University has declared Valentine's Day (V-Day) a holiday, but not for the reason that immediately springs to mind.
The varsity had issued an advisory to its students asking them not to roam around the university campus on Valentine’s Day.
However, after widespread criticism of the advisory and use of inappropriate language threatening disciplinary action against students, sources said that the advisory is now being retracted.
The reason is the university doesn't want students to celebrate romantic love - as is done on V-Day February 14 - because it is "western culture".
