    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.

    Jakarta – Cops Trying To Make ‘Public Wary’ Of Fanatic Gang? 

    The attorney for Habib Rizieq Shihab (HRS), Sugito Atmo Prawiro, said that the Police’s move to collaborate with Densus 88 in the title of a case related to the FPI account was excessive. 

    That’s interesting.


    We have not paid much attention to Rizieq the Fanatic…


    Rizieq the Fanatic, cuffed

    …for a while, largely because his gang’s been banned and he’s safely in detention!

    Sugito suspects that the Police are actually trying to lead public opinion to be wary of FPI by cooperating with Densus 88 in handling the account. 


    Maybe Pak Sugito is correct, but is it not possible that quite a significant percentage of public opinion already is, and has been for a long time, ‘wary of FPI…’

    Two Cops Wounded, But Jakarta Fanatics Dispersed! 

    After we warned of traffic chaos in Jakarta due to the fanatics antics on Friday..

    Fanatic’s Fans To Cause Jakarta Traffic Hell Again? 

    …our prophetic powers were proven yet again, but I was far away in the south of the city, having a nice late lunch with two nice people…

    ….in a very pleasant resto I’d not visited before.

    Meanwhile, up by the Horse Statue ( actually of the legendary hero Arjuna)..



    …two cops were injured by thugs wielding ‘sharp weapons,’ but their colleagues managed to arrest ‘a number of people.’

    Traffic was of course seriously disrupted, but eventually, the fanatics slithered off home. 
     began to disperse.

    Needless to say, their main demand, that Rizieq the Fanatic be released, went unfulfilled.


    The ‘Grand Imam’ of the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ is still securely held in police detention, and will remain so, until next year – not as long as it sounds, yeah?  


    PA 212 will have a large demonstration at the Presidential Palace, Friday (18/12/2020).


    As one of my commenters advised me, that ANAK banner refers not to ‘Children’ but to the Anti-Communist National Alliance.

    As a lifelong anti-communist, I find it mildly embarrassing that these people use such a term, especially when the government of President Jokowi is about as far from being communist as can be!

    As for real children, I am looking at an article in a local newspaper, about how some very unwholesome ‘teachers’ are trying to use their classrooms as indoctrination centres.

    More on this next week.

    Jakarta – Six Sectarians Shot Dead, But TV News? 

    Very odd the Indonesian tv channels’ low-key approach to dramatic news here today, after no less than six of Rizieq the Fanatic’s ‘suspected sympathisers’ were shot dead on the toll road between Jakarta and Cikampek in West Java.

    Four more went on the run!

    The 10 people are suspected of being sympathizers of the leader of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) Rizieq Shihab…. https://amp.kompas.com/nasional/read/2020/12/07/14084051/bareskrim-polri-bantu-polda-metro-jaya-buru-4-simpatisan-rizieq-shihab-yang

    BTW, we still await news of whether that fanatic showed up  to answer the police summons today!


    Fanatics Fail To Show Up. So What Next? 

    Good to read that the police are getting fed up, viz.

    We call on Rizieq and his supporters to refrain from disrupting the investigation process, because doing so constitutes a felony.”


    Since one of my regular commenters alerted me not long ago, I have found info on today’s events on both local and foreign news-sites, but on the local tv channels?

    Some little text news at the bottom of the screen!

    Indonesian security forces do a pretty good job against sectarian evil…

    Jakarta Echoes of Gibraltar – How Dare You Kill Terrorists?

    …and often get precious little thanks.

    Having today tackled fanatic gangsters who were armed with guns and swords, and come out on top, you’d think a bit more recognition would be in order!

    According to police statements, the incident started with the Polda Metro Jaya investigation of information in the short message application regarding the mobilization of masses to guard Rizieq’s investigation.. https://amp.kompas.com/nasional/read/2020/12/07/14084051/bareskrim-polri-bantu-polda-metro-jaya-buru-4-simpatisan-rizieq-shihab-yang


    Channel News Asia – based in Singapore- provided full coverage at 5pm Jakarta time, including denial of the police account! And they say Rizieq the Fanatic has gone into hiding, ‘for his own safety!’

    So I guess he won’t be responding to that summons!?!

    Kasihan! Oh, poor ‘Joker!’


    However, the report in the Jakarta Post makes disturbing reading.

    Apparently the pig-ignoramus, named M. Nasoem Sulaiman ( inexplicably nick-named ‘Joker’) attended a ‘mediation’ meeting, along with one of his victims, named Inggrid, after his disgusting intimidation of the children, a meeting attended also by the police!

    Like, uh, what’s to ‘mediate?’

    He should have been arrested, and of course fired by the apartment management from his job as a ‘handyman!‘ (handy with what, sharp weapons that terrify tiny tots?)

    Having watched the video, a question arises – who is that sneaky-looking creature in the white cap and shirt standing immediately behind the lout?

    That kind of outfit is often sported by a notorious sectarian thug-gang here in Indonesia.

    Some investigative reporting, please!

    Hypnosis Threat – Jakarta Cops Warn Citizens To Pray!

    I wasn’t sure if it was a spoof, so when I got home I looked  it up and there it is, a dire warning from Jakarta Police against the menace of hypnotists!

    The first line impressed me, advice to read some prayers before you leave home.

    What overseas readers need to realise is that almost everyone here has a tale to tell of encounters with malign men – almost always seems to be men – who tap you on the shoulder, which puts you under the ‘fluence, then when you regain your senses your wallet is gone.


    Not according to many seemingly sensible Indonesians I’m well-acquainted with.

    It doesn’t work on us foreigners!

    Now and then, waiting at bus stops, somebody will tap me on the shoulder, but merely to initiate a conversation, like ‘where are you from, mister?’

    I of course reply civilly – if it’s a lady, VERY civilly! And that’s the end of the episode.

    Or maybe they really ARE wicked hypnotists and when they grasp I am unmesmerised, they fall back on conversational gambits!

    The rest of the warning covers more practical aspects, like ‘don’t go out alone, don’t carry valuables you don’t need to,’ and some further spiritual counsel and…

    Kasihan Destiara? Yummy Model Demands Apology! 

    What’s going on in Kendari?


    Hasil gambar untuk kendari


    In the normal run of events, most everyone here, and even more abroad, would be hard-pushed to answer that question.

    Kendari is a city in Sulawesi, which is rarely in the news.

    But a yummy model’s righteous wrath has put it in the headlines this week, with the city’s mayor having to come all the way to Jakarta to answer questions about what transpired between His Honour and Destiara Talita…


    Gambar terkait


    …who is, as you can see, exceedingly yummy.

    The mayor she’s reported is Adriatma Dwi Putra and last week he attended the Jakarta Police headquarters.



    I won’t offer a photo of Dwi…

    ( a member of the PAN, party, by the way, which I’ve written about previously  –‘Moderate’ PAN Fanatic Bribes Muslims Into Prayers!   -though I’ve never so far written about Kendari’s Mayor Dwi)

    …as he’s not as enjoyable to look at as Desti, but there’s a pic of Police HQ, which I pass on the bus most times I go into town.

    The Model v the Mayor?

    I imagine this story will run and run, as who said what about, or to, whom, is gradually determined.

    Desti maintains that, not only had she been Dwi’s significant other for some time prior to his recent election, and that he’d pledged marriage, albeit not proper marriage but something called ‘nikah siri,‘ a kind of informal arrangement…The Corner: Nikah Siri (Unregistered Marriage) ….

    Gambar terkait

    …but that, flushed with political success, he backed out of the plan and, worse, dismissed her as a prostitute, allegedly compounding this insult by suggesting she was both ‘poor‘ and ‘stupid.’

    Harsh words.

    Curious, because she doesn’t look stupid, nor indeed like a whore, and I checked her out on another site, where, I discovered, she’s listed as a reporter, student, politician AND has a bra size 34B.



    Gambar terkait


    Mayor Dwi, to nobody’s great surprise, denies all that she says.

    According to the Jakarta Post, all Desti wants from him is an apology but it seems unlikely he will give her one.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/08/22/model-urges-kendari-mayor-to-apologize-for-defaming-her.html

    The Jakarta Police have yet to name Islam Defenders Front (FPI) founder Rizieq Shihab a suspect in a pornography case, despite naming Firza Husein a suspect for purportedly sharing pornographic material in WhatsApp chats between her and Rizieq…

    The news here gets ever more intriguing!

    ….Rizieq ignored two police summons on April 25 and May 10. He was reported to be in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and now in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    The Jakarta Police confirmed on Tuesday that Mr Rizieq, who has ignored several police summons for questioning over the alleged pornographic text conversation, was in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

    No Guarantee Jakarta March Peaceful, Yet Police Disarmed? 

    Since the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ keeps inexplicably referring to the anti-Ahok parade on Friday as a ‘Long March,’ I’m providing a map of central Jakarta so you can see for yourselves what a miniscule distance is involved.


    Hasil gambar untuk istana negara istiqlal map

    If you look to the immediate north-east of the large green area with the National Monument in the middle, you can see the big Istiqlal Mosque, whence the short ‘Long March’ will set out.

    Then switch your gaze an inch or so to the left, that smaller, paler green area – there’s the Istana Negara, the National Palace, the destination of the rather short ‘Long March.’.

    Of course the hateful horde ( and rest assured, they DO hate Ahok – Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate ) won’t be moving in a straight line. They’ll want to have a howl-fest outside the Jakarta City Council HQ, also on the map, at the very bottom.

    Nevertheless, even allowing for several twists and turns around the downtown area, I think the fanatics’ appropriation of the name given to Mao Tse Tung’s march (even though the rotten old Red China tyrant didn’t do much of the marching himself!)…

    000000000    Hasil gambar untuk long march mao

    …is sheer cheek!

    But that’s the least of law-abiding Jakarta citizens’ concerns, I’d have to say.

    Yesterday we looked at the words of the loutish FPI spokesman Munarman, waxing loud about how this agglomeration of extremists would be a ‘peaceful action…’



    Munarman, showing his commitment to peaceful protest

    Half-Million Fanatics Descending On Jakarta? Peacefully!?! 


    But we have an update! 

    Munarman estimated 4 November will be attended by 200 thousand people. With so many of them he could not guarantee the action will be peaceful.


    I’LL BET!

    And given that admission, surely the police on duty should be armed, and not just with the side-arms we can see them wearing every working day.

    NOT SO! They’ll be unarmed!

    I was appalled when one of my regular commentators drew that bizarre state of affairs to our attention.

    So I checked it out – it’s true, as made clear by Jakarta’s top cop…


    Hasil gambar untuk Kapolda Metro Jaya Irjen Pol M Iriawan

    …in this report, of which the headline suffices to show what’s been decreed in respect of keeping the city safe.

    ‘Police Escorting 4th November Demo Forbidden to Carry Fire-Arms’

    Polisi Pengawal Demo 4 November Dilarang Bawa Senjata Api

    I had missed the shocker, so my bad, for not being more thorough!

    We all know that IslamoNazis are cowardly curs…


    fpi skulk in mosque


    …UNLESS they‘re mob-handed, out-numbering their targets.

    And we know too that jihadist street-thugs here in Jakarta won’t hesitate to attack and injure police officers if the opportunity presents itself.

    So common-sense might seem to dictate that, with a six-figure swarm of sectarian fanatics on the streets of the capital, security forces should be equipped with high-powered weaponry, and be authorised to use it!  

    PS – according to the Jakarta Post, the number of police deployed to supervise the Short March has been increased to 20,000 – http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/11/01/police-to-deploy-20000-officers-to-anti-ahok-protest.html – last we heard it was 8000.

    IslamoNazis V Free Speech – Jakarta Cops Referee? 

    There are few more repulsive sectarians than Indonesia’s self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front’ (FPI)

    They are as infamous for their thuggery as for their cowardice. 




    Jakarta’s police officers have more than once suffered vicious assault at their hands.. …so how disturbing to read the Jakarta Post report last week.

    Bowing to pressure from the Islam Defenders Front (FPI), the Jakarta Police decided on Friday not to give the go-ahead for a discussion on terrorism scheduled for Saturday. http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2015/11/28/event-nixed-amid-fpi-pressure.html


    Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Mohammad Iqbal however, totally denies this!

    Read on…

    The event was a discussion on jihadism run by the Association of Journalists for Diversity’s (Sejuk)

    • Rather insightfully, Sejuk put up posters which depicted the Islamic State (IS) flag next to the FPI’s official logo. The white-shirt hoodlum outfit didn’t like this perceptive ad at all.

    Why would they? Who cares?


    • iqbal Iqbal
    • But more to the point, why would the cops see fit to “facilitate a mediation between Sejuk and the FPI to prevent any possible security issues,” as Iqbal told the JP journo. He also claims that following the meeting, a deal was struck for the event to be dropped.

    The obvious way, surely, to ‘prevent any security issues‘ is to authorise police on duty to use whatever means necessary, including their fire-arms, and deal with any Islamist louts aiming to interfere with free speech.

    Only a day ago I praised Jakarta Police for shooting dead a scumbag who had it coming!Bravo, Polisi Jakarta! Tapi Jangan Malas Tembak Banyak Lagi! 

    ‘Mediation’ between decent people and known advocates of lawless violence…


    fpi kill busddhist

    …is inappropriate behaviour for serious law enforcement.

    But the good guys have their own tale to tell – they say it WASN’T ‘mediation’ at all but blatant pressure to shut them down.
    …Sejuk said that it was disappointed with the police force’s move, which it deemed to have failed to provide safety to the public and protect freedom of speech.  
    “Sejuk is concerned that pressure and censorship of this sort will make the discussion of religion, an issue perceived to be sensitive, taboo and best avoided. Sejuk recognizes that law enforcement is more likely to censor discussions with themes that it perceives as sensitive..” 

    • censorship
    • And Sejuk member Andy Budiman has more to say “…we are disappointed that the police force could not guarantee that the event would be able to take place…”

    Now back to Iqbal, who denied that the police had pressured Sejuk to cancel the event by making a thinly veiled threat that they could not guarantee the participants’ safety if the FPI decided to disrupt the discussion.

    “As I have already said, the committee canceled the event on its own initiative,” he said.

    Mutually contradictory. But worrying, because SOME police elements have shown overt sympathy with IslamoNazi hoods.


    • fpipradopo5 Pradopo, country’s top cop, takes tea with Islamonazi gang-leaders
    • ——————-
    • Former top cop Timur Pradopo was the worst example, though even back in 2004, the Monas Riot, police stood back and watched as gutless Islamist gangsters bloodied defenceless pro-tolerance demonstrators.

    And there was this episode ..

    “After the public statement by condemning the work and the FPI accused Manji as a lesbian, police and FPI ended the event. A later discussion was dissolved by Sunni hardliners in Yogyakarta, while the police did not take any action.”


    My own particular ‘fave’ example of police irresponsibility was when cops handed over helpless orphans to the FPI and the equally unpleasant Hizbut Tahrir. Muslim School Burned by Angry Crowd – Police Enlist IslamoNazis to Counsel Kids! 

    Something especially horrid about that, in my opinion.

    Certainly several distinguished police officers have said good things on the issue of how to handle sectarian evil-doers…
