Indonesia mulls mini-skirt ban

United Kingdom,Immigration/Law/Rights,Lifestyle/Fashion, Thu, 29 Mar 2012 IANS

London, March 29 (IANS) Indonesia has plans to ban the mini-skirt under its stringent anti-pornography laws as it believes "they make men do things".


According to the Muslim-dominated country's religious affairs minister, one of the considerations in its review of what could be considered pornographic would be "when someone wears a skirt above the knee", the Daily Mail reported Thursday.


Minister Suryadharma Ali literally started a war against the mini-skirt soon after he was appointed to run Indonesia's new anti-porn task force earlier this month.


Parliamentary speaker Marzuki Alle also recently hit out against the mini-skirt. But he targeted women politicians wearing skirts above the knee.


Alle said he was preparing draft rules banning women politicians and staff members from wearing mini-skirts because "there have been a lot of rape cases and other immoral acts recently and this is because women aren't wearing appropriate clothes".


"You know what men are like -- provocative clothing will make them do things," he added.


Indonesia is the world's largest Muslim nation, making up 12 percent of the global Islamic population.
