Miss Muslim World or ‘Miss Muslimah World 2013’ in the local language will instead be held in South Jakarta on 18 September with the participation of 20 ‘beauty queens’ from six Muslim nations, namely Iran, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Nigeria and Bangladesh.
One of Indonesian organisers of the event, Eka Shanty, said that beauty would not be the “primary factor” or sole yardstick. The focus will be on the three ‘S’, she said, namely sholehah (good morals), smart and style, but undoubtedly participants will be “beautiful as well.”
Organising committee told participants that they must wear “Islamic style” clothing that reflect “the colours of the Muslim world.”
The Committee also confirmed that “in-depth meetings” were held before the competition with experts and Islamic scholars to discuss clothing and other items that relate to Muslim traditions.
Por supuesto, mientras se oponen por inmoral al concurso de Miss Universo, a pesar de haber cancelado la prueba de traje de baño…
So there. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
El pastor está acusado de decir que Mahoma fue un hombre brutal que mató a personas inocentes. Christian Today (encontrado aquí):
Dozens of Christian families have fled from their homes in a village near Lahore after a pastor was accused of blasphemy against the Prophet Muhammad.
In a discussion with a Muslim man on August 24, Pastor Sattar Masih, 37, was accused of saying that Muhammad was a brutal man who killed innocent people.
Masih denies the accusations, saying he said nothing derogatory about Islam or the Prophet.
The pastor was beckoned before Islamic clerics to plead his case. “The clerics will decide if he blasphemed against our Prophet and in case he refused to appear before the clerics then we will kill him,” said his accuser, 18-year-old Ali Hassan.
Fearing he would not be given a fair trial, Masih fled to Lahore with 21-year-old Christian Wasim Raza, who had introduced Hassan to the pastor, after a group of Muslims had undertaken a house-to-house search for them.
