Indonesia’s Jakarta Globe: “Dressing to Impress Aceh’s Shariah Police”
– Jakarta Globe: “Women are revamping their wardrobes in West Aceh to conform to the new Shariah regulation.”
– ” ‘I have to replace my clothes with skirts and Muslim outfits [that are long-sleeved and loose],’ 20-year-old Rahma said last Tuesday. ‘I don’t want to be arrested by the Wilayatul Hisbah [Shariah police] when they really implement the new law.’ ”
– But another woman tells Jakarta Globe: “I’m not afraid of the Shariah police. I believe that a person should not be judged by what they wear. It is the heart that matters, not a piece of cloth.”
