The fundamentalists are a curse for all thinking people. The Islam always was a very tolerant religion, but because of the influence of the Saoudie Arabic interpretation of the Koran, everybody has to obey them. To hell with them.

I think it's because of the name "Playboy", most of the consevative moslem groups banned this magazine. They didn't even had read it, even the government, otherwise they didn't forbid it for the the time beeing and jailed the editor in chief.

The conflict between Playboy Indonesia and FPI seems became never ending story. Although the court already declared that Erwin Ananda, editor of Playboy Indonesia, was not guilty, the problem still not over yet. Actually, there were many printed media published in Indonesia used girl (s) wear bikini as cover. Let say, Popular, Matra, Liberty and Top as ‘representative’ of magazine. Meanwhile; Pop, Sensasi Hot in tabloid format. Those media existed a long time ago before Playboy Indonesia published. There were never any complains to those magazines/tabloids. To be honest, I think FPI disturbed with the name of Playboy. Because once people heard name Playboy, they will related to pornography. You can see in American version of playboy, there was a girl that poses topless. However there were no photos like that in Indonesian Playboy. Frankly, other Indonesian male magazines exposed the sensuality of a girl more vulgar than Playboy Indonesia. The conclusion was, it was not because of the contents, it was all because the brand, “Playboy”.
