Taliban is back

Not in Afghanistan but in Indonesia, the country with the largest Muslim population. A woman was caught by the moral police while she was waiting for a bus at night. And later she had to explain to the court why she brought with her a lipstick and a compact! Worse, she was called a prostitute by the crowd outside. This is a very disturbing development. While this movement of putting the blame of moral decay on women is not yet widespread in Indonesia, it seems to be growing at an alarming rate. If left unchecked, Indonesia could really have a problem. Raden Adjing Kartini must be rolling in her grave.
