No Tight Clothing for You!


The same groups staging violent demonstrations against the West over cartoons of the prophet Muhammad are targeting pornography in their battle to transform Indonesia into a strict Islamic nation. And they are winning: parliament is set to introduce a sweeping anti-pornography law.

Expected to be passed by June, the law imposes a rigid social template; couples who kiss in public will face up to five years' jail, as would anyone flaunting a "sensual body part" - including their navel - and tight clothing will be outlawed.

Why don't they just bring in the Mutaween from Saudi Arabia?

Since Indonesia will likely pass this legislation and presumably has the manpower to enforce the law, I'm assuming that culprits of such crimes and the Islamists are already behind bars. I mean, seriously, the largest Muslim nation in the world can't possibly have asinine priorities, right?
