I was recently hearing from some people about what a wonderful sign of Islamic tolerance was the fact that, although there was mob violence, the government was not moving against Playboy in Indonesia. So much for that. From Reuters, with thanks to Kaosktrl:
JAKARTA (Reuters) – The editor of Playboy Indonesia and two models whose pictures appeared in the magazine’s first edition are being investigated for violating indecency laws, police said on Friday.
The magazine’s first edition sparked protests in Indonesia in April although it had no nudity. Less flesh was visible in the issue than many other magazines on sale in the world’s most populous Muslim country.
Jakarta police spokesman Ketut Untung Yoga said models Andara Early and Kartika Gunawan had posed indecently in the edition, which was issued from the Indonesian capital, and editor-in-chief Erwin Arnada should also be held responsible.
“There are three suspects. Each will be processed based on their roles. Many more may come,” he said.
