    Indonesia axes bikinis for 2013 Miss World pageant

    Miss World has axed the famed bikinis from this year's pageant in Indonesia, replacing the skimpy swimsuits with conservative beach sarongs amid mounting protests from hard-line Muslim groups, organizers said Thursday.

    All of the more than 130 contestants will be required to wear Bali's traditional long sarongs instead of the sexy bikinis that are historically part of the competition, said Adjie S. Soeratmadjie of the RCTI, the official broadcaster and local organizer.

    Parts of the pageant will take place on the resort island of Bali and the final round will be held Sept. 28 near the capital, Jakarta. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim country.

    "There will no bikini in this year's Miss World pageant to respect our traditional customs and values," Soeratmadjie said, adding that the London-based Miss World Organization is on board with the decision.

    "This is a sensitive issue in Indonesia. We have discussed it since last year and they have agreed," he said.

    The chairwoman of the Miss World Organization, Julia Morley, confirmed that none of the 137 contestants would wear a bikini.

    "Indonesia is designing for us a very beautiful one-piece beachwear, and I'm very happy with them," she told The Associated Press by phone from London, adding that the pageant will include a special beachwear fashion show.

    "I don't think Indonesia is the only country that has that culture," Morley said. "But we like to work in the manner respectful to every country, and I cannot see why when you go to somebody's country you should not behave respectfully."

    The pageant began in the 1950s, and the first winner was crowned in a two-piece bathing suit.

    Soeratmadjie said the sarong would be made creatively and designed specifically for the event.

    Controversy over the pageant has been mounting in Indonesia, which has a reputation as a tolerant, pluralist society that respects freedom of expression.

    Clerics of the Indonesian Council of Ulema, or MUI, said they would send a letter to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to demand that the beauty pageant be canceled.

    "That contest is just an excuse to show women's body parts that should remain covered," said Mukri Aji, a prominent cleric from West Java province's MUI branch. "It's against Islamic teachings."

    Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a hard-line Islamic group, said it planned to stage a protest and called for the competition to be moved elsewhere.

    Most Muslims in Indonesia, a secular country of 240 million people, are moderate, but a small extremist fringe has become more vocal in recent years.

    They have pushed through controversial laws — including an anti-pornography bill — and have been known to attack anything perceived as blasphemous, from transvestites and bars to "deviant" religious sects.

    Lady Gaga was forced to cancel her sold-out concert in Indonesia in May following threats by Islamic hard-liners, who called her a "devil worshipper." Jennifer Lopez toned down her sexy outfits and dance moves during a show in Jakarta last December.

    So the muslim threat of violence wins out again.

    If they went ahead with bekinis, there would obviously be rioting and bullshit

    He's correct, actually. Several hardline groups have threatened violence if it goes ahead, despite the lack of bikinis in Bali...

    The finals are going to be held in Bogor (a bastion of hardliners and hardcore muslims... )

    Retarded to actually hold the even in Indonesia in the first place. WTF was Julia Morley thinking? A free holiday in Bali? What is wrong with looking at the beauty bestowed on certain women when at the same time millions of Indonesian men are downloading porn. Yet more Islamic hypocrisy for the sake of attention.
    No one on TD is gay. If suspect, it was probably because of the way they were reared.
    I apologize if any offence was caused. unless it was intended.
    You people, you think I know feck nothing; I tell you: I know feck all
    How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

    No worries, I'll post up some more articles later re: this whole miss world stuff. I suspect that it may became a much bigger issue yet. There's also every chance it will not go ahead or will be moved.

    The fact that these wankers are carrying on when Bali is Hindu really shits me. Bunch of uneducated, facist men who are hiding behind muslim ideals and giving indonesia a bad name. (And indonesia deserves it for allowing them to act as terrorists)

    If the tards are stubborn enough to give Miss World to Indonesia, they should save everyone the trouble and replace the swimwear event with full burkas.

    Have you not seen the Burka clad ladies in what was formerly a fairly liberal Egypt, being herded around in a rope to "protest"?

    No it's about the modern trend of faux islamic moral outrage leading to a boring old bint show getting covered up, because mad mullahs want all women circumcised, uneducated and covered in a tent, and have a cohort of brainwashed followers to help them get their way.

    What did you think it was about?

    Oh the the Boston bombings, the London beheading, the daily murder world wide in the name of Islam is just "faux islamic moral outrage"

    I am going to laugh my ass off when one of your freinds or family gets beheaded or dismantled my a bomb. Then we will see how "faux" this outrage really is

    I stand corrected. I misunderstood your mutter.

    But its sometimes hard to extrapolate the mutter coming from confused socialist muslim apologists.

    Indonesian Muslim Hard-liners Vow to Stop Miss World

    Indonesian Muslim Hard-liners Vow to Stop Miss World
    By Agence France-Presse on 4:36 pm June 6, 2013.

    Islamic hard-liners vowed Thursday to stop the “immoral” Miss World beauty pageant taking place in Indonesia even after organizers agreed this year’s contestants would not wear bikinis.

    The Hizb ut-Tahrir group slammed the show as like “selling women’s bodies” and threatened to hold demonstrations against it, while a group in the province where the final is due to take place also voiced strong opposition.

    More than 130 women will compete in the September event, with some rounds on the resort island of Bali and the final in Bogor outside Jakarta. Bogor is in West Java province, parts of which are considered a stronghold for radicals.

    Organizers confirmed on Wednesday the contestants would not wear bikinis during the beach fashion section, to be held in Bali, and would instead wear more conservative attire such as traditional sarongs.

    However, the concession was not enough for hardline groups in Indonesia, where some 90 percent of the 240 million population are Muslims.

    “Supporting this event is the same as supporting the selling of women’s bodies,” said Ismail Yusanto, spokesman for Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia, who also warned the group may organize protests.

    “Women are lowering themselves by allowing themselves to be turned into objects, to be stared at and have their bodies measured.”

    Hardline group the Islam Reformist Movement (Garis), which is affiliated with prominent radicals the Islamic Defenders Front, also said the bikini ban was not enough.

    “They will still wear outfits that will encourage sex and immoral acts,” said Chep Hernawan, the head of Garis which has its base in West Java province.

    The organizers have insisted the decision not to have bikinis was taken when the deal was struck last year to host the show, and not after pressure from radicals.

    Vocal protesters have succeeded in getting events cancelled in the past in Indonesia.

    Last year, pop sensation Lady Gaga axed a concert after hard-liners threatened to burn down the venue and criticized her for wearing only “a bra and panties.”

    Most Indonesians practice a moderate form of Islam.

    Rights group the National Commission on Violence Against Women urged people to take a more measured view of Miss World.

    People should consider whether “the contest really looks at the women as humans and judges them based on their talents,” said Andi Yentriyani, a commissioner with the group.
