Group protest against Miss World in Jakarta,say event must not hold

The 2013 Miss World pageant is scheduled to hold at the Sentul International Convention Center in Jakarta, Indonesia on Saturday September 28th..but it won't hold if the Muslim women in the country have their way. 

For days now, members of an Islamic group called Hizbut Tahrir have been protesting against the pageant in Jakarta. Yesterday, they converge outside the office of the local organizer of the beauty contest, MNC media group, warning them not to stage the pageant in the city.

Other cities are also holding protests, demanding that the permit to hold Miss World pageant in their country be revoked, saying that the pageant runs against their culture.

MNC Group and Miss World Organization say it's too late to find a new location but promised that contestants would not be allowed to wear bikini at the event.

Same thing happened in Nigeria in 2002.

This could be a huge set back. The organizer should have done investigation well to know whether such event will be highly by the populace. Is like such event in Jerusalem or Mecca.

on 16 November 2002 wen ThisDay, a
Nigerian daily, published an article
written by 21-year-old journalist Isioma
Daniel in which she suggested the
Prophet Mohammed might have
married one of the contestants.
Many Muslims were deeply offended,
and on 20 November youths in Kaduna
sacked and burned a local office of the
newspaper.

In 2002, the Miss World pageant was moved from Abuja to London because of deadly protests in Kaduna over a controversial article that contended the Prophet Mohammed would have chosen a contestant as wife.

I don't blame them, they've been unfairly wrapped up and isolated all their life in the name of religion and culture by the society which they belong, meanwhile the same country want to host a beauty pageant. They simply see it as wicked and unjust but of course will not say it. Besides if the pageant is hosted it's the men who will have the pleasure to go see it while the women are made to sit at home.

Islam is a religion, Muslims believe in Islam and the will of Allah, if you don't hold you belief strong in your life then you are living for nothing. Islam is total against terrorism, totally! There is no where in the holy book where it states that you could take some1's life no matter what. What happened in Nigeria in 2002 wasn't a protest it was just about people taking other people beliefs for granted. The other day people where insulting the poor girl who confessed about her escapades with a " man of God" because she couldn't take the fact the he was preaching against the same thing he was doing. Like I always tell people understanding is the key to peaceful coexistence of humans. If you try and understand ur neighbor doesn't mess with his beliefs then please don't play around with them and vice versa. Christians please understand that we respect highly the prophets, messengers and the words of Allah. These are part of our beliefs so please respect that. I have never heard a Muslim say derogatory thing about Jesus because of the respect we have for the messengers of Allah. Please Islamic women are not In bondage because the cover up Mary the mother of Jesus Christ ( pbuh) always wore a veil in all her pictures and statues, I never saw her without it. Pls lets understand each other and coexist. Islam is strongly against TERRORISM! Thanks. BM

Islam is a religion I'll never understand and God knws I've tried to. Have read the Quaran and the Hadith, but its still funny. Can't understand why 'trivial' issues such as beauty peagants can if unchecked lead to maiming and killing. How is evil/sin determined in Islam?
PS try and free them if they don't want the peagant in dia country, I can't shout.

Why are Nigerians so arrogant, disrespectful n rude??? Pls u don't have to insult d muslims or their religion to make a point.

Nigerian (Christians especially) are so hypocritical. You claim to have morals but wanna call muslims names because they don't condone nudity? But you call yourself a Christian? I'm sure most of you were the same ones throwing endless curses at Beverly for what happened in the BBA house.
Think about it this way, would you like it if a gay or transgender pageant held in Nigeria? Wouldn't you all be angry and protest against it? And then the Americans too will join in and refer to Nigerians as backwards and hypocrites.
Bottom line is, RESPECT PEOPLE'S BELIEFS AS YOU ALSO WANT YOURS RESPECTED.
