While the world will celebrate Valentine’s Day on February 14, things are a little different in this Pakistani University.
The University of Agriculture in Faisalabad will celebrate Sisters’ Day on February 14.
As part of the celebrations, female students can be gifted scarves and Abayas (clothes) by male students.
According to the University’s Vice-Chancellor Zafar Iqbal Randhawa, the celebrations are “compatible with Pakistan’s culture and Islam”.
He claimed that celebrating Sisters’ Day would allow “a soft image to develop”, and that people will realise that this is how much sisters are loved in Pakistan, Randhawa told a Pakistani news channel.
