Tight pants ban takes effect in Indonesia

  MEULABOH, Indonesia (AP) – Authorities in a devoutly Islamic district of Indonesia’s Aceh province have distributed 20,000 long skirts and prohibited shops from selling tight dresses as a regulation banning Muslim women from wearing revealing clothing took effect Thursday.

The long skirts are to be given to Muslim women caught violating the dress code during a two-month campaign to enforce the regulation, said Ramli Mansur, head of West Aceh district.

Islamic police will determine whether a woman’s clothing violates the dress code, he said.

“The rule applies only to Muslim residents in West Aceh,” Mansur told The Associated Press. “We don’t enforce it for non-Muslims, but are asking them to respect us.”

It does not set out a specific punishment for violators, but says “moral sanctions” will be imposed by local leaders. Could be much worse..
