Lucknow University, in a decision that has left people baffled, issued an advisory today, declaring a holiday on the Valentines day, and warning the students from entering the premises of college under any circumstances and prohibiting any kind of cultural celebrations. "The students are notified in this connection that the university will remain closed on February 14, 2018, for Mahashivaratri".

The Lucknow University has instructed students to remain away from the campus on February 14, 2018, when the varsity will remain closed to observe Mahashivratri. "Disciplinary action will be taken against those found wandering or sitting on the university premises".

"We all appeal the parents of the students not to send their wards to the university".

The university has issued such notices on Valentine's Day in the past as well. At the time, students said that university officials don't allow a boy and a girl to even talk to each other on V-Day. The advisory issued by the university says the decision to observe a holiday tomorrow is meant to curb the "western influence" of Valentine's Day.

The protests have often turned violent with couples being roughed up and shops and restaurants being vandalized for selling Valentine's Day goodies or having theme parties related to the festival. The ADG Law and Order Anand Kumar said that adequate police force would be deployed on Thursday at public places to ensure no one is harassed.
