Artist and educator Salima Hashmi on Valentine’s day:

LAHORE: Known artist and former National College of Arts principal Salima Hashmi said the day’s activities had proven that people wanted to celebrate romantic events like Valentine’s Day, as it is inherent in human nature. She said Punjabis, and especially Lahoris, were fun loving and open-minded people, who were famous for colourful celebrations of festivals throughout history. She said people had been aware about Valentine’s Day even during her college days, but the love existed in the form of love letters and other means at the time. Daily Times staff report
