The deafening silence from CAIR, ISNA, Obama, Clinton, Sotomayor, Kagan… via Muslim Women: Say Goodbye to Jeans
As of Thursday authorities in a devoutly religious sector of Indonesia’s Aceh providence have disseminated 20,000 long skirts to Muslim women for inappropriate attire. Shops in the district that sell or display tight clothing can have their license revoked. The new rules apply to the Aceh providence’s Muslim population said Ramil Mansu, head of West Aceh district.
Mansu explained to the Associated Press that the skirts are given to women wearing clothing that fails to meet the restrictive dress code. These measures are all part of a two month campaign to enforce the regulation and promote strict moral values. As described by Mansur, inappropriate clothing is determined by the Islamic police. If the dress code is violated the risqué clothing is confiscated and a long skirt is given in return.
On Thursday during a police raid, 18 women wearing jeans received long skirts and only after speaking with Islamic preachers were the women released from police custody.
Imma, a 40-year-old housewife argued, “I am not wearing sexy outfits, but they caught me like a terrorist only because of my jeans.”
