Sharia takes hold in Indonesia.
RELIGIOUS police in Indonesia have raided a dozen beauty salons and arrested 13 beauticians for failing to wear Islamic attire and two male customers for having their hair cut by women.
Bahagia Hadi, the chief of the Sharia – Islamic law – police force, said that raids on beauty salons would be intensified in the Indonesian province of Aceh as they were often found to be used for prostitution.
Mr Hadi added that police officers had found used condoms during a raid on Wednesday in one of the salons in Banda Aceh, the capital of the province that was ravaged by a tsunami two years ago.
He said that the 13 female salon workers were arrested because they were wearing tight shirts and jeans, but no head scarves, while the two men should have known that Sharia law states they can receive haircuts only from male hairdressers.
