Aceh Pageant Stirs ‘Sashaying’ Storm. New Fatwa Soon?
No, sorry to say the above photographs do not depict scenes from the Aceh beauty pageant. In fact, if such normal healthy females were seen in action in Aceh, they’d presumably be flogged. Primitives up there really hate seeing women who like to look cute, – or even to see them walking around.
Organizers of a beauty pageant in Aceh defied opposition from a conservative Islamic group by staging the event on Friday evening. Organizing committee member Poppy Amalia said claims that the Miss Aceh Fair 2011 pageant went against Islamic values were nonsense. “It’s not like Miss Universe, where contestants wear revealing clothing,” she said. “Here, they’re fully covered. And the contestants aren’t sashaying [as claimed by pageant critics], they’re just walking down a stage.”
Now there’s an important doctrinal detail for the so-called ‘scholars’ of the MUI to debate (and ultimately issue a fatwa about) – exactly how women must walk!
However, the group Rabithah Thaliban Aceh, which purports to represent Islamic primary school students, said the pageant went against the province’s Shariah law.
PRIMARY SCHOOL STUDENTS!?! Snotty little brats – why are they not out playing Cowboys and Indians, instead of poking their runny little noses into adult matters?
Hasbi Al Bayuni, head of the group, said he only found out about the pageant the day before. “We immediately urged the organizers to call it off,” he said. “Islam forbids women from sashaying around in public, even if they’re appropriately covered, and especially if there are men watching.”
Oh Lord, whatever next. If some gal wants to walk to the corner shop, are men to be ordered indooors as she ‘sashays’ past. Are blinds to be pulled down and curtains drawn to stop us wicked guys watching – because there are a heck of a lot of gals here who can’t seem to walk without a definite sashay in their step, and what a joy it is to see them!
“ What makes it worse is that this public display is being staged by the government. If the pageant’s purpose is to improve tourism, there are many other Islamic activities to attract people to visit Aceh,” he added. “We call on the government to put an end to activities like this that debase the dignity of Acehnese women.”
Activities like THIS, you bone-headed little bigot?
