This reads like a classic Onion story:
The Surabaya Police escorted Islam Defenders Front (FPI) members on Sunday as they raided shopping malls in the East Java capital to check whether outlets had ordered employees to wear Christmas attire such as Santa hats.
Hundreds of police officers were involved.
Recently, the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) issued an edict banning companies from forcing staff to wear such items, deeming it haram.
The Muslim country with a population over 250 million is saying that haram and illegal are one and the same. Can't say it's a surprise.
