    Kasihan Dinar Candy – Since When Are Bikinis ‘Indecent?’ 

    Poor Dinar Candy!
    Or, in her own language, Kasihan Dinar Candy… 
    And who, overseas readers ask, is she?

    My Indonesian readers will know she’s a ‘show-biz’ personality, quite a cutie…


    Dinar Candy (@dinar_candy)


    …as you can see, and thus somebody likely to elicit my sympathy.

    And why does sympathy come into it?

    Because, stressed out by the emergency rules introduced to curb the Chinese Virus…


    ..Dinar donned a bikini and took a stand alongside Jakarta’s busy thoroughfares, where she hung about attractively, for a while.

    Unggahan Dinar Candy pada Instagram @dinar_candy, Rabu, 4 Agustus 2021


    Not long enough, alas, for me to call a cab and take her a cool drink, but time enough for videos which duly featured on various tv news bulletins.

    Alas, ludicrously, the channels I watched had the infamous blur superimposed on her comely form.

    More than once have I fulminated against the opaque cover-up  – the blur, a diktat of the state censorship body…

    Dimana Bokong2nya? – Where Are Our Buttocks? 


    Komunitas | Final Putri Indonesia Disensor Demiz Sebut KPI jadi Lembaga Pembluran


    The blob has even been used to ruin a perfectly nice scene at a Miss Indonesia event!


    But my fulminations have been to no avail, and the censorious blur continues to obscure the enjoyment of normal folks, no doubt gladdening the hearts of people like the Executive Board of the Indonesian Muslim Student Union (PB SEMMI)

    According to SuaraBekaci.id, those boring board members issued a sanctimonious call for Dinar to apologize!

    And if she dares defy the kill-joys’ call?

    If she doesn’t apologize, Dinar Candy will be reported to the police…Dinar Candy is considered immoral and indecent...’

    Now it can be argued that Dinar might have dreamed up more practical measures to tell the world of her stress problem.

    We all get stressed now and then, even Yours Truly but wearing a swim-suit to town would not occur to me – it would be a horrid sight on the highways and by-ways of Jakarta, or any other city. I’d probably deserve to be arrested!


    But calling the cops on Dinar is bloody ridiculous.

    There’s nothing unacceptable about bikinis.



    And anybody insulting a girl for wearing a bikini, abusing her as ‘immoral and indecent,’ is just a…

    Expletives deleted!

    Well, I disdain the use of obscenity, so you must deduce my thoughts.

    Sadly, there are more than a few unusual persons who over the years have set bad examples to the young, on the subject of beach-wear.

    There’s that grisly old brute who urged bigot thugs to attack foreign tourists in Bali…


    Out! But Has Infamous Preacher Of Hate Apologised? 

    ….revealing his backward bigotry for all the world to see..

    In the video, Bashir urges those in the village to beat up tourists that disrespect Islamic ways, saying, “If there are infidels here, then beat them up. Do not tolerate them.”

    Later in the sermon, he likens non-Muslims to crawling “worms, snakes, maggots.”

    He also says infidels ruin moral values by exposing their skin at the beach.

    Worm about to turn?

    “Take a look at Bali”, he said.


    But he’s exceptionally hateful and horrible.

    The lesser hang-ups presumably stem from bizarre notions held by many, about women’s bodies, that men should decree how women look!

    ‘Fathers and husbands, their private parts are YOUR responsibility’

    Some sad souls actually believe that gunk-think.

    Which may well be one reason why poor pretty Dinar has actually been cautioned by the cops –

    The Metro Jaya Police spokesperson, Commissioner Yusri Yunus said that Dinar Candy can be charged for violations against ITE and pornography laws after the female disc jockey staged a public protest against the extended public activity restriction (PPKM) by wearing a red bikini at a sidewalk in Cilandak, South Jakarta. 


    One can only hope that Dinar, who has indeed apologised, will not be taken to court.

    If she feels unduly stressed, she can always drop by my place for a chat.

      Very nice when you write about Indonesia, Ross.
      It is true what you say, Dinar Candy is not clever to go on the street in Jakarta, but very bad to report her to police.
      Why the Bekasi boring board think her bikini indecent? She is not naked.
      Bikini is fine for any woman, unless the body is very ugly!

      You did notusually speak with understatement Ross, I remember that even when you were my teacher, yes
      So you are very surprising to speak so mild words, but ‘gunk-think’ will do.

      I never watch CNN but my neighbours have it on and I hear their news bulletin, women in Afghanistan being forced back into burqa.
      These cruel sexist customs not belong in the 21st century. It was always unjust to women but in this day and age it is very sad that sad people are still scared stiff of the sight of a woman’s skin.

    Far be it from me to leap to the defence of a ‘lawyer and human rights activist’ –


    ..though the Libyan variety seems to understand patriotic duty much more clearly..

    -but I must sympathise with Libya’s Foreign Minister, Nahla El Mangoush, who has been ‘subjected to personal abuse....after she called for Turkish troops and mercenaries to leave her country.

      The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.”

    ..so it’s not surprising that Najla is catching flack from nasty fanatics, like one ‘radical Islamist cleric,’ Sadiq al-Gharyani who is not a Turk but is allowed by Erdolf to use Turkey as a base.

    Wicked though Erdolf’s insistence on keeping his garrison in a former Ottoman possession….



    …no doubt is, much more concerning are his navy’s acts of war in the Aegean….

    ...the incidents occurred off the eastern Aegean island of Chios when Turkish coast guard vessels violated Greek territorial waters. ..

    …and made dangerous manoeuvres very close to Finnish and a Swedish boats patrolling under the umbrella of Frontex.. https://euobserver.com/tickers/151768

    ITMA – Osama Bin Laden ‘Poet’ Pops Up In Makassar! 


    Metro TV had a very long, and largely boring, outside broadcast from Makassar, in South Sulawesi, yesterday afternoon.


    Sulawesi, formerly known as Celebes


    I would have changed channels but the mayoral /vice mayoral candidates had chosen to declare their candidatures on a fishing vessel in the harbour, which was lovely to behold, the sunlight shining on the waters.


    Also, one of the candidates was accompanied by a very attractive young lady dressed all in blue.

    No idea who she was!
    But ever so pleasing to the eye!

    Alas, he quickly lost my vote (if I had one- we foreigners quite rightly have no political rights in Indonesia )

    But why was I turned off?

    Because I saw the person in the photo below…


    …among the notables who stepped up to endorse him.

    Anis Matta, who infamously wrote an ode to the satanic mass-murderer…


    …Osama Bin Laden.

    I haven’t seen the fanatic local in the news here for at least two years, but every time I see or hear of Matta, a wave of nausea washes over me, for his vile exaltation of that foul fiend.

    Very Brave Indonesian Lady – Hope She Stays Safe! 

    I don’t expect anybody outside of Indonesia will have heard of Dewi Tanjung, who was a popular actress before she found a new career!


    Dewi Tanjung

    She’s a politician nowadays, in one of the most pluralist parties, the PDI-P, not in the upper levels of politics, but she has gained a reputation for what’s described in the West as ‘shooting from the hip.’

    Straight talking does not always win friends here, any more than it does in the West.

    But this time Nyai Dewi, as she’s known, has let her target have it, with both barrels!

    Bahar bin Smith.


    Regular readers will have seen our output on the Islamist extremist named Smith!

    Far be it from me to comment on the wisdom or otherwise of the fanatic’s re-incarceration, though why it has been a matter of such bitter controversy…

    Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 

    …is a matter of some bafflement.

    Nyai Dewi, however, has felt more than free to comment!

    In fact, she’s been quoted in several media as hoping Smith ‘would end his life in prison….’



    Nyai wants to see this arrogant human being fulfilling his proclamation…ROT TO DEATH IN PRISON!” said Dewi.


    Well, Nyai Dewi…

    …why don’t you say how you really feel about Smith?

    Seriously, though, there are a lot of very unpleasant Islamists in Indonesia, which is a great pity because most Indonesians are nice.

    Some of the fanatics have murdered people and gotten away with it.

      You even wrote once about the idiot press in Jakarta, where they write about ‘a certain religion’ instead of telling us which one.
      it is great to read this lady’s words.
      She is brave, because a lot of thugs in funny white gear like violence and dislike women.

    Indonesia’s Islamists Threaten Mob Mayhem! 

    As previously noted, not least by my commenters, that blonde fanatic Bahar Bin Smith, after his release under the Virus Amnesty…

    Virus Amnesty – Indonesian Fanatic Released! 

    Bahar bin Smith.


    …,had to be promptly rearrested, after a mob of his acolytes showed up for one of his ‘lectures’ and distance rules were flouted.

    Some might think it sensible of the authorities to deposit him not in a local jail but in the high security prison far away at Nusa Kambangan….



    …which would require serious trekking for wannabe protesters!

    undeterred, the extremists are threatening not just a demo, once next week’s Idul Fitri holiday is over, but absolute mayhem, an invasion of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, here in Jakarta, if the ranter is not turned loose.

    Smith’s attorney, Aziz Yanuar, was quoted as saying-

    It is also possible that we will occupy the ministry for an audience with the Directorate General of Corrections and the Minister, accompanied by a crowd of hundreds or even thousands…”


    Indonesian Islamist fanatics in the past wore masks, not for health reasons but from fear of identification and well-deserved arrest…or maybe they were just shy!


    While this suggestion of mob intimidation is concerning, I had to laugh at his ridiculous use of the hackneyed and entirely inaccurate deployment of the term ‘Long March!’

    If the plan was to march from Jakarta to the prison in the Javanese hinterland, that would be a long way to go.

    But no way!

    “We will long march to the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights,” Aziz said.

    Oh, yeah!

    The soft-shoe shuffle routine, again!

    We’ve been here before!

    Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

    Not a fan in any sense of Red China’s Mass-Murderer Mao, I am aware nevertheless that his famous ‘Long March’ across that vast country was indeed long.

    Like English, Indonesian is ever-ready to borrow foreign words and phrases, and as you can see, if you read the link, even detik.com has done so.

    Here’s their headline from a previous Jakarta time of troubles.

    Rencana Aksi 313, Salat Jumat di Istiqlal Kemudian Long March ke Istana


    ‘Long March?’

    My Ass!

    Like other such manifestations…

    Jakarta Mosque – Yellow-Bellies Bash, Spit On, Journos! 

    …the actual shuffle (‘march’) back then went from the big Istiqlal Mosque down to President Jokowi’s palace.


    Hasil gambar untuk istana negara istiqlal map

    I could do that in about twenty minutes, max!

    And I used to enjoy a Sunday stroll, from quite near the ministry mentioned above, up to the Monas park area, right by Jokowi’s palace!

    Again I scoff at the notion that it’s a ‘Long March!’


    But, again as I said before, the shufflers, sorry, marchers, have to proceed slowly, to accommodate ranting.

    It must take your breath away when you repeatedly indulge in sectarian hollering, as heard when the shufflers were out to get Jakarta’s good Governor Ahok.

    Ahok, later imprisoned for ‘blasphemy’  – seriously, in the 21st century!

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners-march-against-ahok.htm


    Just for good measure, there’s a demand that President Jokowi fire both the Minister of Law and Human Rights, Yasonna Laoly and the Corrections Director, Reinhard Silitonga.

    Never to be outdone, that notorious Alumni 212 gang are gearing up to join in.

    For more about that lot, read this –

    Islamist Fanatics Rage At India – ‘Diskriminasi?’ Oya?’ 


    One can only hope President Jokowi will stand firm against any such attempt at mob rule.


    But after what happened to Ahok, who knows?

    While so far we’ve noted the release of common criminals under Indonesia’s Program Asimilasi ( virus amnesty)…

    Machetes? Swords? Another ‘Virus Amnesty’ Thug! 

    …this time it’s an Islamist fanatic, who, barely nine months ago, was sentenced to three years imprisonment for serious offences.

    Bahar bin Smith.

    According to Tempo, the unusual looking Bahar bin Smith got out of prison in Bogor on Saturday and was whisked off by his chums in the so-called ‘Presidium Alumni 212.’

    That PA 212 outfit comprises the crowd who organised the sectarian mob that swarmed Jakarta streets, as we reported at the time…


    Jakarta Christian Governor Ahok, imprisoned for ‘blasphemy…’

    The protesters, most of whom were men dressed in white Muslim attire, were heard yelling, “We want a Muslim governor,” “Burn Ahok!” and “Kafir!”   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/10/14/thousands-hard-liners    

    Slouching Towards Sharia


    ….until the much-admired Governor Ahok was convicted of ‘blasphemy’ and jailed. 

    The Tempo article is not without entertainment value, or perhaps insights into the mind-set of criminals here.

    Before leaving, Bahar still had a good time with hundreds of other inmates, said one of his fan-club.


    The convicts seemingly had ‘tears in their eyes’ on the occasion of his release!

    Anyone wishing to know the details of why this man went to jail in the first place should read this report…

      Yes, he was taken to a high security prison, not just for having got crowded people to his speech but for inciting people.

    Poisonous Cakes? A Small Hurrah For Hanover! 

    It’s very odd that Germany has not deported every Salafist in the land.

    They are fanatic Islamists whose ideology makes them unfit to live in a civilised country.

    Another ‘Kill Un-Believers’ Plot? Why Don’t Germans Expel Salafists? 

    We have already written about them more than once.

    In the absence of any serious attention to the menace by Mama Stasi Merkel’s coalition…



    …it is left to others to handle them, and at least some people in Hanover are trying to.

    They’ve introduced ‘a new state law, put into force last year, making it possible for local authorities to reject permission for stalls on city streets’ to sell cakes!


    If that sounds silly, it’s not, because similar ‘Cake Days’ in the past have involved distribution of Salafist propaganda, and ‘raised money for what authorities described as “dubious purposes.”’


    Last November, street stands in Hanover distributed cakes in exchange for donations for dubious purposes. Some street stand operators were suspected of forwarding donations to Islamist groups in Syria..https://www.dw.com/en/hanover-stops-islamist-cake-and-propaganda-drive/a-48713007

    The article reminds us of outbreaks of evil in Hanover committed by ‘cake day’ enthusiasts…


    …a mangy teen sow named Safia S, who stabbed a cop, and her sibling pig, Saleh S…

    …who hurled petrol bombs at citizens entering a shopping mall.

    ( no info on when or if the scum were deported – what’s the betting that Merkel let them stay in Germany?)

    Okay, one city is grappling with evil. At least they’re doing something.

    Another filthy sectarian savage has been shot dead after a murderous rampage in a Paris ‘suburb,’ hollering the familiar blasphemous war-cry.

    It’s small consolation to think of the pig roasting in Hell as we type this.



    But the most shocking (  are any of us shocked any more, by atrocities committed by barbaric ingrates whom pusillanimous European governments have allowed to settle and breed like vermin in once proud cities?) information is to be found way down the page on RT’s report.

    ‘He was previously known to security services and was listed on the national security threat list, known as Fiche S, for incitement to terrorism, according to local media reports.’


    So just as the blood of the victims of the scum Merkel imported to Germany is on her hands…

    Jackboot! Woman Jailed For Complaint About Mosque Noise! 

    I live not that far from a mosque. It’s difficult not to be far from a mosque in Jakarta and one gets used to it. Some of them are not too noisy but I know a number of people who find the noise irksome.



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

    They’ve been noisy tonight, because it’s cow- and goat-killing day tomorrow, the public holiday of Idul Adha.

    But I guess the critics won’t dare do anything about the problem, after a lady named Meilana, in Medan, Sumatra, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after complaining that a mosque near her house was “too loud” and “hurt” her ears.




    ‘The 44-year-old, an ethnic Chinese Buddhist, was crying and taken out of the court in handcuffs after being found guilty of insulting Islam.’

    Personally, I don’t insult Islam, though I condemn Islamists, who are a menace.

    But I can see no earthly reason why people should be jailed for so-called ‘blasphemy, or saying what they think about any religion.



     If God Almighty feels affronted, He is more than capable of exacting redress all by Himself.

    And since when is it insulting Islam to take exception to some ( often taped) bellowing voice?

    We have touched on mosque-noise before, not only the victimisation of a Muslim man in Aceh…

    Aceh – Muslim Seeks Quieter Mosques, Bullied Into Silence, after ‘Death Threats!’ 

    …which of course is run by shariah fanatics…



    …but also on the craven bureaucracy here in Jakarta that admits it won’t use noise abatement regulations against  mosques…

    …even though Vice-President Kalla, himself a keen muslim, has acknowledged there’s a problem.


    Turn It Down! Ex VP Urges Volume Control for Noisy Indonesian Mosques 

    Meilana’s lawyer is quoted as saying that, rather than any kind of ‘blasphemy,’“this is only to fulfil the will of the people,” and he’s going to lodge an appeal.

    But if such vicious sectarian persecution of a woman who has done nothing wrong really IS the will of the people, then Indonesia is finished as a free country.

    It may be that some people won’t feel uncomfortable about that prospect at all. The extremist Islamic Community Forum, we read in the same report, has ranted that the sentence was too light.

    But is this the Mind-Set Revolution that President Jokowi promised when he was elected?



    When he runs for re-election next year, will he change his slogan to something like…

      Unbelievable but I believe it.

      Smart you dont say exactly what you feel, though what you do say is good enough.
      Wait till they drive us all out and then say it, in some country where you can, without being locked up for saying what you think.
