Jail threat for kissing couples

Indonesian couples who are caught kissing passionately in public could face jail under proposed legislation.
Members of parliament have drafted an anti-pornography bill, which includes a ban on kissing on the mouth in public.

Kissers could get five years in jail or a fine of 250m rupiah ($29,000.)

"I think there must be some restrictions on such acts because it is against our traditions of decency," said Aisyah Hamid Baidlowi, who heads the parliamentary committee drafting the bill.

The bill is awaiting government approval and also bans public nudity, flashing, erotic dancing and sex parties.

Proposed jail terms range from three to 10 years.

Indonesia has the world's biggest population of Muslims, but most follow a fairly tolerant interpretation of the religion.

Hmm.. it's almost April Fools day again Emoticon: Talk to the hand Furthermore I can assume many people support the law, but 'most' is probably a fair exaggeration of facts.
