I think these pictures and the article about Eid Milad un Nabi are very informative. Look at the countries in which this is happening. Look at the people carrying these monstrous cakes. What an absurdity. Clearly, there is an influence from the surrounding Hindu culture, where their gods and bhagwans are deified to the ying yang. This practice is not happening among Muslims in the west. At least not in North America. Birthdays are not recent events; they have been celebrated for generations. And, they aren't evolving either...that is why this portrayal of the Prophet's birthday is...just...unusual. I wonder if there are any girls on this site from Pakistan who hope to have a mehndi celebration when they get married, and wear a red lengha or gharara when they get married? Hindu culture 100%.
