Aceh, the new jihad against tight jeans: "they are contrary to Islam"

A new extremist Islamic group active in Aceh, in particular in the district of North Aceh, and going by the name of Tadkiiratul Ummah, has shot into the limelight recently thanks to its "new" campaign of "moralization" according to the dictates of sharia, Islamic law. Its members are "striking out" at girls and young women who are guilty of wearing "too tight pants". Instead of limiting themselves to a warning, as had already occurred in the past in the region, the militants spray the offender's pants with indelible color spray and paint (in the photo). When asked about the reasons that triggered the group to take up this particular moralization campaign, Teungku Nurdin Usman explains that "local authorities have shown poor performance in implementing the sharia law-based regulations".

According to the spokesman of the extremist group it is a "moral duty" to assure that sharia is respected "both by men and women", both of whom are targeted "by raids and inspections in the streets". He says that boys and men who wear pants that are too tight will be punished in the same way. "It is our hope - Teungku Nurdin Usman concludes - that they (the guilty) will be shamed in public, and will refrain from repeating similar misleading behavior." The extremist leaders will give a sarong to the women who are caught in public wearing inappropriate clothing to put on in place of their tight jeans.

Nevertheless, moderate Muslim movements like that of the Nahdlatul Ulama (Nu) take their distance from the initiative promoted by Tadzkiiratul Ummah, highlighting the fact that the movement lacks the authority to promote this kind of action. Furthermore, during the month of October, the "moral police" (known as Wilayatul Hisbah) in the Aceh Besar district encouraged disciplinary action and fines against women whom they felt were guilty of wearing tight jeans or pants in public.

Indonesia, the most densely populated Muslim nation in the world, is often the stage of attacks or acts of intolerance against minorities, be they Christian, Ahmadi Muslims or of other faiths. In the province of Aceh - the only one in the Archipelago - sharia law is implemented following a peace agreement between the central Government and the Free Aceh Movement (Gam). In many other areas (like Bekasi and Bogor in Western Java) the expression of Islam is becoming more and more radical and extreme. Many Christian places of prayer have been shut down in the past two years due to pressure by extremist movements.

1. There is no correlation in the world

 

as absolutely perfect as fundymentalpatient religulous beliefs and abject, unquantifiably immense stupidity. It is up there with Newton's Laws of Motion.

4. Insanity is expecting normal people to believe you are right and they are wrong.

 

All fundamentalists are insane.

Humanity will not progress until it purges the twin scourges of greed and belief in Iron Age superstitions about perpetualy pissed-off psychotic godheads. Not one day before.

"THIS IS THE part of her leg I mark with my spray can of insanity, here...and some here...a little on the other leg...seriously I do this with a straight face...okay...which man wants the spray can next?" "I think I see the outline of that woman's slender arms so her shirt sleeves are too tight...step up and mark your insanity folks!"

6. Once again a 99.99% pure vein of Stupidium

 

is struck in the name of a non-existent skydaddy.

If humanity could somehow find a way to transform this kind of blighted imbecility into clean energy we would, as a planet, have enough for the next 100,000 years and warp drive by next July 4.

18. Well it is still very important to point out the flaws of others and if possible punish them

 

(bonus if you just made shit up and blamed them anyway) because a kind and caring God that sent his son of peace to man as an envoy knew men (breath in) are good creatures that would never get obsessed with small things - like spraying off the areas of sin touching clothing so others can actually SEE the sin and avoid it in the future. That would be insane, God knows nobody would do something that imbecilic.

Oh.

Well, you know...mysterious ways and shit. I'm sure it applies to all religions.

19. True, I think that the colors represent something different.

 

Notice he is using Sin Red. Green would mean she is greedy. Blue depressed. Gold (some say it is orange) means she is for sale. Just a new and improved version of the scarlet letter. For God of course. He said the old system was outdated and they needed to update their sin charts.

20. I think spray painting a women's Sin Areas in public where they touch her pants is a bit special.

 

While one is women shaming, the other is women shaming and violating her personal space. If nothing more, the difference is one of saying something only while the other is vandalizing a persons personal space.

Okay, I know it is stupid to argue degrees of crazy...but special crazy does need an honorable mention.

16. + 1000. I wish that young woman would have shoved her ass in his face to "paint"

 

Instead of looking mortified, I wish she'd simply turned her backside right into his smug face and told him to get to work on her ass...

Fuck those religious scum police!

17. Also, it important to mark off the sinful areas on the legs, arms etc.. so that the Creator

 

doesn't have to squint. "OH yeah right that spot is touching her leg. Thanks for highlighting the areas fellas, I can't seem to find my glasses. I think I left them in the Crab Nebula, be right back."
