Indonesian Sharia Police Detain 35 Women For Straddling Motorcycles

Oh boy.  The Sharia police are active in Indonesia and luckily for all true Muslims in the country, they were johnny on the spot the other day when they detained 35 women who were straddling motorcycles as they rode on the back of them.  Let's face it...when a woman rides on a motorcycle, her legs are going to spread and in that action, not only is she compromising Mohammed's view of her posture but her garb can ride up and there may just be a little ankle exposed! 

And Mo forbid that these women would actually wear PANTS while riding on a motorcycle!

It's a testament to the tolerance of Islam in Indonesia that these whores weren't all taken out and shot, right?

The story comes from the Jakarta Globe via The Religion of Peace.

35 Women in Aceh Netted for Straddling Motorcycles by Shariah Police

Thirty-five women in Aceh’s city of Lhokseumawe have been let off with a warning after the Shariah police caught them straddling a motorcycle and not wearing appropriate Islamic dress.

The Shariah police were conducting a raid on the main roads of Lhokseumawe on Friday, to monitor the administration’s bylaw that prohibits female passengers from straddling motorcycles.

“The aim of the raid today [Friday] is to uphold and inform people the regulation on straddling motorcycle issued by the mayor,” Irsyadi, the acting chief of the Lhokseumawe Shariah police, told the on Friday. “We also warned people who were not dressed up in an Islamic way. With what we did today, people will be more aware [of the regulation].”

While the women were not arrested, they were warned to not straddle a motorcycle again and to not wear tight outfits.

“As we saw today, many of our people were still straddling motorcycles, probably they don’t understand the regulation, that’s why we informed them,” Irsyadi explained.

Lhokseumawe mayor Suadi Yahya explained that the bylaw was expected to discourage women from wearing pants in public. He said that the bylaw was needed because he had seen people’s behavior and morals straying too far from Aceh’s Islamic cultural values.

“We want to save women from things that will cause them to violate Shariah law,” he said. “We wish to honor women with this ban, because they are delicate creatures.”
