    Iniquity Of Polygamy – Bandung Mayor’s ‘Men Only’ Plea! 


    Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil, a social media aficionado, told Idul Fitri masses gathering at the Gelora Bandung Lautan Api stadium in the city that it was better for married men in Bandung to not commit polygamy.

    In most civilised countries, polygamy is outlawed.

    Here in Indonesia, however, there is official disapproval, but there’s no ban, and a quite a lot of backward men do indulge in it, notably Islamist fanatics.

    Kontroversi Poligami – Shariah Sexists Shrilling Stridently! 

    What I personally find most disgusting is not that some men are so over-sexed that they can’t be content with one wife…

    .

    ….but that the law lets them get away with it – whilst making NO provision for similarly over-sexed women to enjoy reciprocal carnal indulgence.

    =

    =

    If a man can have four wives, both justice and common sense surely require that a woman can have four husbands – both scenarios sound God-awful to me, but…

    …well, fair’s fair, yeah?

    ==

    .

    Polyandry, of course, is NOT countenanced under any circumstances!

    But Ridwan, whom we have met before in these columns…

    Pluralism? Muslim Sermons on Public Buses? 

    Bandung Mayor Reports Twitter Twit to Cops – Understandably! 

    ‘Bandung, City of Pigs!?!’ 

    ….does not try to argue the case against polygamy on the grounds that it is obviously iniquitous!


    Mayor Ridwan Kamil

    He is, you see, a 2018 West Java gubernatorial election hopeful – so he’s actually courting the votes of single males!

    “I call on married men here to not commit polygamy. Please have pity for those men who have yet to find a partner in life,” said Ridwan..

    What about women who are single?

    Aaah, but perhaps Ridwan’s audience was segregated?

    I suppose if all those single blokes do get hitched, the single Bandung chicks (who are generally very cute) will, by logical corollary, get snapped up.

    But it seems superficial to preach against a social blight on such mundane, self-interested grounds.

    Still, Ridwan DOES have a reputation for joking.

      Very happy holiday to you, Ross and thank you for making me laugh. That cartoon is so funny and tells women how silly it may be to have many husbands.
      I wish the crazy men who think they can have many wives need to go live in some crazy country like Arab Saudi.
      Indonesia women do not want to share husbands.

    Pluralism? Muslim Sermons on Public Buses? 


    I don’t like flying. Never have, never will.

    In the days when I had time to spare, my choice was always the ocean wave rather than way up high.

    But one resigns oneself to it, pretending one is on a bus and avoiding the sight of clouds outside your window. Now, however, taking an actual bus here in Indonesia, at least in one major city, is going to be a bit of an ordeal as well.

    Bandung, West Java’s top city, has many buses going to and fro on its streets, and the Jakarta Post last weekend reported there’s to be a program for Islamic preachers to board city buses and give sermons.


    Bandung looks normal, but it IS in West Java!

    Cops Stop West Java Worship, Appease Islamist Louts 

    ——-

    Good grief.  

    Apart from the fact that no similar opportunity to hector helpless passengers appears to have been offered to Christian, Buddhist or Hindu preachers, who needs sermons when you’re on the way to work?

    Anyone Muslim in Bandung, or anywhere in West Java, who wants to enjoy spiritual uplift, has a choice of multitudinous mosques to drop by. Most people who board a bus like to doze off, read a paper, or chat to whomsoever’s sitting next to them.

    What gives Bandung City the right to disturb their preferred peaceful pastimes?

    But it gets even weirder – the Mayor claims not to know anything about this sectarian propaganda scheme.

    “When they announced it, they did not have my permission. We have no such plan, why did they announce it? I am confused myself,” Ridwan Kamil said.

    Seems like Hizonna needs to slap down those who’ve been keeping him in the dark about this bizarre plan, which was announced a few days earlier by H. Latief, the head of religious affairs at the city secretariat.

    http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/08/15/bandung-mayor-has-not-given-nod-to-bus-sermons.html

    According to Latief, the sermons will only happen on state-owned DAMRI buses. In Jakarta, they only run to the airport, but in Bandung, I don’t know.

    However, if they are state-owned, all the more reason to stop Latief’s scheme. Indonesia is NOT an Islamic Republic, but a multi-faith nation, so this putative sectarian hi-jack is totally out of order.

    0000000000000

    • ———————-
    • But Latief’s arrogance is unbelievable. He asserts that the sermons would be better than just daydreaming, communicating through cell phones or sleeping.

    No way is that for the likes of some jumped-up wowser like Latief to decide for you or me, buddy! Talking to family or friends, or texting, are splendid ways to pass time on a bus, as indeed is sleeping.

    ……………….

    And it gets worse!

    Turns out it’s a joint project between the Ministry of Religious Affairs’ office in Bandung, the Indonesian Ulemas Council (MUI) and Bandung Islamic State University.

    ————-

    • fatwa mui sholeh Ulemas are ‘scholars’ – so they say.
    • ————–
    • Hell, if the MUI has got anything to do with it, one must hope that the poor mayor can quickly regain control of his city administration. Any clerics the so-called ‘scholars’ approve are almost bound to be bad news!

    —————

    • ma'arruf amin  Ma’aruf

    It was MUI’s Deputy Chair who kindly advised everyone that FGM is a ‘human right!’

    And here’s another of their ‘scholars’ talking.

    So now we have a hint of what Latief means when he says the bus-preacher sermons would touch on the subject of “morals, good deeds, etc.”

      It’s bad enough with getting blasted by the loud-speakers from the mosques.
      You are right of course but they couldnt be any worse than those awful ‘musicians’ that jump aboard and scream for three minutes then want paid.
