    Get Your Tickets Soon – Jakarta Shariah Tourism Boom? 


    We did report on Sandiago Uno’s astounding promise prior to the Jakarta election – as a  result of which he’s now Deputy Governor – that he envisioned a sharia-inspired nightlife entertainment network in Jakarta.

    But we merely noted it, in a post which covered all the issues that were alarming normal people. 

    The Ugly Face of Islamist Intolerance! 

    Not that Sandiago Uno himself is in any way unprepossessing. On the contrary, he comes across as very presentable and personable!

    But now this rich, American-educated ( yes, truly!) entrepreneur has shown he’s a man of his word.

    Sandiaga Uno to establish sharia tourism zone in Jakarta

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/28/sandiaga-uno-to-establish-sharia-tourism-zone-in-jakarta.html

    Note, no question mark! This guy is serious about his plan, for the Senen area of  the capital.

     “I think it will be interesting if there is a religious tourism zone [in the area], which is properly arranged with tents. Hence, mobility can be ensured.”

    I welcome that last sentence. Mobility – the ability to get through Senen as fast as possible – would need to be an integral part of any such scheme, as many of us encounter horrendous traffic jams there.

    ……..

    …..

    I sat on a  bus a month ago for nearly an hour, just waiting to get through the underpass beside the big shopping area.

    But what delights would await folks who flitted in and out of Sandiago’s tents?

    Many places popular with tourists who come to Jakarta feature what are invariably described as ‘sexy dancers.’

    =

    Not just ‘dancers,’ NB, which has always made me smile, wondering if the proprietors fear that patrons would not recognise the dancers’ sexiness without being told of it!

    –a–

    However, I somehow doubt that the tents would accommodate any spectacle of that sort.

    Sandiago previously talked of such joys as Koranic readings, but would that really draw shariah-fans to Jakarta when they can easily find THE REAL THING…

    =

    =

    …by taking a short flight up to Indonesia’s most northerly province, ACEH, proudly dubbed by some of its inhabitants as the ‘Verandah of Mecca,’ the ONLY province in the archipelago where shariah is enshrined in the local legal code of law.

    No tedious tents required there, because the quintessence of shariah morality is displayed in the main squares…

    …..

    ….

    …….

    ….young women being beaten by cowards too ashamed to show their faces, before a salivating rabble of voyeurs and fanatics.

    Nor are dancers, either sexy or otherwise, a popular phenomenon up there, where such repositories of wisdom as this kindly old gent have made plain their demerits…

    …to the extent that even the graceful and utterly decorous traditional Acehnese dancing has drawn disapprobation.

    Muhammad Thaib, Regent of North Aceh has  banned all adult women from dancing when welcoming guests in North Aceh, adding that only children should perform the tradition.

    Nightmare stuff, yeah?

    But at least we can avoid going anywhere near Aceh, and Senen.

    How long normal folk can expect to find fun in Jakarta remains to be seen, however.

    ….and Anies may be tempted to listen to benighted FPI views such as that expressed in neighbouring Bekasi.

    There the local government’s Tourism Special Committee was told awhile back by the Chairman of FPI in Greater Bekasi that the Muslims in Bekasi reject the draft law on one point – it would legalize nightclubs.

    And here in Jakarta itself, there have been serious calls for a shut-down of nightlife at MIDNIGHT…

      Why would anyone come to Jakarta for this? Aceh is shaming our country every day with the sharia law so no need to make sharia tourist place here in our city.
      Every woman in Indonesia should protest.

      Will Sandiago Uno also put dancing ban onto Jakarta?.
      If not will he tell Aceh mullah to visit brain doctors?
      Sandiago must make up his mind.
      Aceh shows how shariah is cruel,for all but most specially for women.
      I wish Ahok was still our governor. He made mistakes but he is not in prison for that. Only for free speech.that we no longer have and soon we women will have no freedom if shariah comes. .

      Congratulations, Ross.
      You said everything I wanted to say when I read this but you said it better than I could, all those quotes and humorous angles that make fun of the whole thing.
      A lot of Arab tourists come here but not to go to shariah shows. You must have seen them, chasing the working girls in the hotel bars.

      I never go to Senen market for many years because there is too much pickpocking there. I do not want to loose my money or bag.
      Now I think even more it is good idea not to go shopping there with too many FPI who think woman is less than man.
      Better I will go to the Atrium mall near it but better still to nice place like you like at Citralan , It is safer there.
      I think only fanatic same like FPI will use the place Sandiago is making so it is no good plan.

      I wont be going to Senen but I never do anyway. Cnce was enough, hot and crowded and prices that rose soon as they saw I was foreign.
      Shariah tourism is a joke, who would come here for that ? If they like watching women getting hurt for holding hands with their boyfriends they can go to Aceh as you say or some other terrible place, Iran or Saudi Arabia
      More reasons to be cheerless but thats what Shariah is all about.

      Goodevening, Ross, such a long time I do not comment but often I read an think you are doing good work for Indonesia and so tonight I say to myself, do not be lazy to comment.
      This is all true and these FPI and the other fanatics are taking over. We lowly people have no way to stop them so we believed Jokowi will do it.
      But sad to say it, we are mistaken.
      Who will save our country?

    Last Week I Saw ‘Evil’ Dancers – A Different View of Aceh! 


    It has been an interesting week – few weeks in Jakarta go by without something interesting or at least memorable happening to, or near, or around me!

    But close proximity to evil incarnate certainly can’t pass unremarked.

    And for sure Mr. Mustafa Ahmad would remark on it, for ’twas he who defined what I saw at close quarters as ‘evil!’ That handy categorisation came – by astonishing coincidence – exactly two years ago, when I posted on the blinkered old brute..

    =

    Mustafa-Ahmad-Ketua-MPU-Kabupaten-Aceh-Utara. Mustafa  Aceh’s Mad Mullah – ‘Dancing is EVIL – It Involves Body Movements!’ 

    ——–

    The North Aceh Ulema Consultative Assembly (MPU) supported Thaib’s ban, calling the move a positive innovation. Mustafa Ahmad, head of the MPU, said that Aceh’s traditional dances, including the Saman dance, were evil because it involved body movement, as quoted by Atjehlink.com.

    (Ulema, believe it or not, translates as ‘scholars!’)

    Now if Mustafa had got his scholastic knickers in a twist over the dancers on display in certain Blok M bars, I might not have agreed with him.

    Yet it could be possible to understand a certain disapprobation, with which my late and much beloved Ontario Grandma would have surely concurred.

    But the dancers under discussion in Indonesia’s most backward and bigoted province were, as he said, Saman dancers.

    Saman is a traditional dance, performed by both men and women. Until this month, I had only seen photos of them, one of which I used two years ago. You can see for yourselves how the girls are dressed, and there’s nothing in those costumes to affront any sane human being.

    Even Grandma would have approved!

    =

    Aceh’s traditional Saman dancers

    ========–

    But last week – last month, I have now to say – I attended a cultural event at which the allegedly devilish dance was performed by a troupe of rather pretty young ladies. They were as fully clothed as the gals pictured above. Their choreography was skilful and well-practised, but about as far from being in any way evil, or even erotic, as anything you can imagine.  

    I’d no wish to cause them any problems, so no photos were taken of the dancers I saw – instead a search of You Tube has provided a video of some other Saman girls – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTXd66SJlyg – That video, one hopes you agree, confirms my comments on the innocuous and indeed wholesome character of the dancing.

    This brief effort on my part is simply to underline, for any yet unconvinced, that Aceh is a sort of asylum and it is very definitely run by the lunatics.

    But also to evoke your compassion for Aceh’s poor normal folk, Muslim indeed, but people who never asked for shariah law nor were given a referendum to approve it.

    They suffer daily the rabid intolerance of fanatic fools like Mustafa and his ilk.
