Censorship Home And Away!

There is of course censorship in every country….

….cranky kill-joys in the Western world –Appeasing Uptights – Merkel’s Himmler Wants Ban On Sexy Ads! – and similar people here in Indonesia…. Aceh’s Mad Mullah – ‘Dancing is EVIL – It Involves Body Movements!’

And the text on the screen translated it all into Indonesian….EXCEPT the third terror gang’s name.

I leave you to speculate whose hidden meddling hand decided THAT sectarian censorship.
