Prude Warnings

Fear of Extremist Protests to Miss World Contest Prompts International Travel Advisories for Bali

(9/23/2013) A number of foreign embassies in Indonesia have issued warnings to their national to exercise caution during the Miss World Contest scheduled to end with the final selection of the winner on September 28, 2013 in Bali.

Embassies are warning of the threat of extremist attacks in the wake of threats of “holy war” against the international beauty pageant seen by fundamentalists as immoral.

Efforts to appease religious sensibilities by replacing the swimsuit competition segment of the contest with contestants wearing Indonesian traditional dress have apparently done little to placate members of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) whoissued demands to the Government for the event to be cancelled.

Among those countries issuing caution warnings are the American, British, Australian and Singaporean embassies.
