Garut Gals Will Cheer You Up – Unless You’re A Kill-Joy!

Pretty dismal news on all fronts, and, sadly predictably, when something very un-dismal happens, the kill-joys start braying.



Garut is located in Indonesia’s West Java province, a source of much unpleasant news over the years… 

Ahmadi Koran burned by Islamists in Cisalada, 2011

…but here’s a sight to cheer up all normal people, guys at least!


HEBOH TARIAN EROTIS DI GARUT, Ditonton Ratusan Laki-laki, Wakil Bupati Jengkel, MUI Sebut Haram

Dancers at Garut Culture Fest, a week ago.

Great stuff, yeah?

But we read in that –

The dancing of those girls evoked controversy from the citizenry of Garut.

The local ‘scholars’ got all fretty.

’The girls’ activity is deemed not to reflect the vision of Garut Regency!’

Oh dear!

The local Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) chairman, Sirodjul Munir, holds that whoever staged this ‘must take responsibilty, because the show does not accord with Garut culture. Moreover, the dancing could be seen by minors!’

It’s clearly haram! It has disturbed the morality of the people.”

Like, uh, which people?

The audience didn’t seem at all upset, and since there is no nudity evident in the video…

…though it’s hard to tell, because the video is blighted by the imposition of opaque intrusions, similar to the way state censors here blur cleavage when a bar-maid in a film bends forward!


….why bring minors into it?

Do West Java folks never wear shorts?

Sadly, it appears that the deputy regent joined in the whining, regrets galore!

The MUI man is no doubt a worthy successor to the gent who held the same position nine years ago…


…who objected to the lovely Miss Universe contestant pictured above, and we are all too familiar with the thinking of the ‘scholars…

“A Wise And Noble Step?” Islamic ‘Scholars’ On Terrorist Unleashed In Indonesia! 

 Bali Hindu King – Don’t Kill Our Cows! Muslim ‘Scholars’ – Get Lost!!  

 Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!” 

…and not just in West Java!

But when people in Indonesia, just like everyone else in the world, are feeling stressed and depressed, can the wowsers not lighten up and choke back their kill-joy chorusing?
