JAKARTA - Indonesia’s current Miss Universe, Riyo Mori, was forced to take a break from her charity tour after hundreds of Islamic fundamentalists set up protests against her. According to a recent report, a collection of ultra-conservative groups calling itself the Alliance of Anti Porno-Action and Pornography, referred to Mori as “a symbol of the world's adultery and pornography.”
Hundreds of protesters gathered earlier this week in the city of Bandung, claiming Mori’s appearance there was “totally against the spirit of the capital which put moral values as the main and basic way of life in this provincial capital.”
Mori, along with her event organizer, Azfauri Aziz, suffered what AsiaNews called “psychological stress, following a strong protest and decided to remain in her hotel.”
The Alliance of Anti Porno-Action and Pornography is an amalgam of several other Islamic groups, including Islamic Youth Movement (GPI), the Bandung Adultery Watchdog (BMW), and the Indonesian Muslim Student's Movement Unity (KAMMI).
