Prostitution Emergency

Aug 2nd, 2007, in IM Posts, by

A State of Emergency needs to be declared in Bandung, because of prostitution.

The Bandung Sin Watch (Bandung Maksiat Watch (BMW)) association, which is an umbrella organisation for a number of Islamic groups including Majelis Mujahidin, Pemuda Muhammadiyah, and Tim Pengacara Muslim, and is led by Asep Syarifudin of the Front Pembela Islam (see Headscarf Ban), has called on the Bandung city government in West Java to declare a Prostitution Emergency over the rampant practice of prostitution there.

Recently the city authorities closed down the old red light district of Saritem however the BMW people are not yet satisfied that prostitution has been properly dealt with:

Saritem isn't the only problem area for prostitution in Bandung, there are still a lot of other places, bigger than Saritem.

Said Dede Sudrajat of the Laskar Ababil, a member of BMW.

Even though the Bandung city council has named 2008 as the year that the city will become "Bandung Agamis" bandung.go.id, Religious Bandung, they are still not trying hard enough to eradicate prostitution, say the Sin Watch people, and have even let Saritem resume operation again.

Dede went on to say that the BMW had conducted thorough research and found that there were nine centres of sex for sale in the town.

Just imagine, if one red light district is made up of 40 houses/brothels, then how much prostitution is going on throughout Bandung!

He was reluctant to name all of the districts but confided that Saritem was only the third biggest, with an unnamed place that he called "Komunitas Cina", i.e., Chinatown, being the largest. This area was much, much bigger than Saritem, he said, and most of the prostitutes, as the name suggests, were ethnic Chinese women, whether Indonesian or from overseas. okezone

    I think prostitution problem isn’t only in Bandung, but in every where in Indonesia. Although in little city and little village. I agree with BMW, our government must seriously to done this problem. I suggest us to do it first to ourself and our family.

  2. avatar Dimp says:

    Bandung Maksiat Watch, so in other words their duty is to watch the maksiat in Bandung…..

  3. avatar Tomaculum says:

    And I’m sure those BMWs, BSWs, BBQs, BBWs ( :) ) have rised a foundation to help those now jobless women (and their relatives), morally and, financially.

    Hehehe. So they did research? Studi Banding?? I can only imagine what kind of research they conducted.

    Dear ignorant non-believers,

    Prostitution is sinful only if part of the earnings do not go toward zakat. According to Islam, Muslims still can send their slaves to prostitution and Allah is always there to forgive. According to tafsir of Ibn Kathir, forcing your slave girls into prostitution for making money is discouraged. However, if your slave girls feel horny, it is permissible. So our Muslim brethren around the world can engage in this trade without fear of any reprisal from Allah – the most merciful, compassionate and most of all, the most just creator of all things.

    I thought slavery was abolished. Or do you want to reinstate it, preferably for Chinese girls?

  7. avatar Falcon says:

    Ah we all learned something new every day” if your slave girls are horny, it it permissible”. Guess what….. all those slave girls in Bandung are horny. Salute.

    Re,

    I thought slavery was abolished. Or do you want to reinstate it, preferably for Chinese girls?

    When Islam reign supreme, slavery will be back. Anyone who still refuses to accept the truth will be annihilated and their women and children taken as slaves. See what our creator has said,
    “And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers.” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:85]

    Slavery is good for mankind and no one will be able to take away this God approved practices from us. Allah knows best.

  9. avatar Lotus 7254 says:

    Gee, slavery are ancient cultures that had existed very long time before the beginning of Roman Empire (even Code of Hammurabi around 1800 BCE prescribes slavery rules). It is a non -civilized (barbaric) cultures /customary practices. And today in this millenium century, there is a guy who wants to reinstate slavery !!! Boy, we’re going back towards barbaric centuries…..

    Lock and Load for Lotus 7254,

    Women can only achieve true liberation if they wear jilbab. These Bandung prostitutes are modern day sex slaves. God prescribed desert culture are for all mankind to follow whether you like it or not. Not only do we good moslems prayed and fasted, waging war against the disbelievers is the most praiseworthy and meritorious act. The domination of the world has begin. Western worlds are being islamised, Jews converting to Islam, Indians doctors found truth in the Quran, and miracles appear everywhere. See this,
    http://www.miraclesofislam.com/
    and this,

    That leaves Communist China and the haram pork-sio-may-eating Chinese. They can’t be trusted. Islam is a religion of peace, and we will tolerate them. But if they still don’t change their eating diet, then their blood will be halal.
    Signs are everywhere, go to the next nearest masjid asap. There are hooris waiting for you for the first 700 repenters. Alternatively if you like young boys, there are pearly boy with silky chest waiting for you. Allah knows best.

    Mas Aluang,

    Good bro keep up your effort and destroy theirs beliefs in mean time I will enjoy the fruition of my good sheep…..but remember you have to eliminate sense reside in your minds because every of your effort must be without sense (ikhlas) because sense only cause desire from desire spring confusion and confusion cause loss intelligence and loss intelligence lead to defeat.

    Btw tonight according Shiva, Raden Mas Panji Jokoboyo and Sabda Palon (both last two Hindu warriors) are going to awake from their state of hundred years hibernation and they will sweep Islam across island and replaced it and leading revival of Java Hinduism….therefore be prepared in Ketoprak Show.

    Prostitution is eveywhere and I don’t see it as threat to morality or so whatever. Anyone who needs it can go and get it but the ones who don’t, just don’t go to get any prostitutes, it’s just that so simple. Freedom for everyone to do what he/she likes to do without any rubbish like morality trash. As the national economy goes better, so does the prostitutes’ and they will abandon prostitution actually. Economic solution is better than religious or morality one.

    Where is “China Town” in Bandung? Just that I have been living in that ‘Paris of Java’ most of my life and thought the girls were very agung, putri Bandung, yes the so called China town girls too. What happens? Dede Sudrajat why did he keep it a secret, if he thinks it’s not good and want to eradicate it, then he should spit it out unless it is a lie, or afraid that he would do the advertising instead.

    Oh no…apparently Muslims have discovered the power of Photoshop too!

    I was almost convinced by those pictures of shiny white mosques, unharmed in the muddy mess called Aceh.

    Back on topic: How nice of this politician to mention the “komunitas cina”, which of course is even worse than Saritem, Bandung’s most famous whore-area. Let’s blame the chinese again, those evil slanty-eyed yellow bastards, stealing pribumi money and creating areas of sin in Bandung.

    Teng: Yeah, sometimes I wonder why Indonesians are so racist. When they are subject to racism in western countries, they cry out of racism but they don’t realize the racism in their own country committed by they themselves. Anyway, Chinese are closest to Indonesians, racially speaking than white to Indonesians.

    Another stirrer.

    We are closer to the Arabs – God chosen people. Chinese think it is sinful to wed daughter-in-law and have sex with underage children. Chinese think it is embarrassing to lose one’s own identity, and unpatriotic to bow toward our Arab lordship. The lists go on. Everything that is virtuous for mankind and rightly prescribed by God Almighty, the despicable Chinese rejected them. So who are you kidding?

    The idea of a bunch of busybodies running around spying on people and reporting their perception of sin to the authorities is much more disturbing than the sin itself. Don’t these people have jobs?

    Perhaps a new society could be formed: call it “watchers of the sin watchers” or something along those lines.

    I would imagine that any of these groups would be reluctant to have their private meetings in the public eye.

    cheers

    Closer to the Arabs? Gosh…. your brain is as tiny as monkey’s. Ok fine, uhmmm… let’s see…. Have you ever compared yourself to the Arabs? Do we have similar physical characteristics to them? Lordship to the Arabs, ok… look what the Arabs do to our women especially our TKW. They are tortured and raped by the Arabs, so… you want to be their servant? Remember the Arabs made Blacks slave long before the Europeans did the same way. Why don’t you go to Saudi Arabia to be TKI, bet the Arabs won’t respect your very basic human rights.

    The Lord of the Worlds, the One True God that created mankind, chose Arabic as His language. He even sent His last prophet pbuh through the Arabs. His name is Mohammad pbuh, not Wong Ching Chong or Ramalingam. Dig it?

  20. avatar KSJ says:

    I prefer having Wong Ching Chong or Ramalingam as my prophet to having a pervert like Mohammad. Heheeh….

  21. avatar Aluang Anak Bayang says:

    If you mean sex with underage girl and daughter-in-law, Prophet Mohammad pbuh is not a pervert. He had no choice. It is God intention to show mankind that underage girl is halal through His marriage with Aisha (Allah be pleased with her). Anyway Aisha’s father approved it, here is the hadis clearly showing that his father had no objection,
    Narrated ‘Ursa:
    The Prophet asked Abu Bakr for ‘Aisha’s hand in marriage. Abu Bakr said “But I am your brother.” The Prophet said, “You are my brother in Allah’s religion and His Book, but she (Aisha) is lawful for me to marry.” (Sahih Bukhari 7.18)
    Aisha was playing with dolls then, so for us Muslims, it is completely okay to marry young girls. ‘Pervert’ or ‘pedophile’ are terms invented by Jews to discredit Muslims.

    As for sex with daughter-in-law, it is taboo for every Asian cultures. But our creator had shown through prophet Mohammad pbuh to prove a point. That adopted son is not real son, and used Mohammad pbuh as scapegoat.
    Sura al-Ahzab Q.33: 37): “We married her off to you so that there would be no objection for believers in respect to their adopted sons’ wives once they have accomplished their purpose with them. God’s command must be done!”
    Prophet Mohammad pbuh felt guilty so Allah revealed another verse to him,
    Sura (66:1-5) – “O Prophet! Why ban thou that which Allah hath made lawful for thee, seeking to please thy wives?…”

    Wong Ching Chong or Ramalingam are not Allah’s chosen. They are the creator’s creature.

  22. avatar KSJ says:

    Yeah… now you call a pervert was a poor man who had no choice. I still prefer wong ching chong and ramalingan as my prophet to a pervert like yours. Sorry.

  23. avatar KSJ says:

    Christianity is far more superior than Islam, as the Pope says. It is true, look at the reality. Muslim world is under West’s control. If not for the oil, Arab nations will be condemned to poverty and their religion does not help at all.

  24. avatar Eric says:

    Why can’t all people of the world just get along, live and let live, God or Allah or whoever you personally choose, loves and wants peace. Man-made religions (Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism, Animism, etc.) hate and divide people. All intelligent humans, honest to themselves, have doubts about if there even is a god, nobody knows for sure, and we won’t until after we die. Dogmatic interpretation that you are right, and everyone else is wrong, only shows how absolutely ignorant you are. Let’s work together using the rigours of rational and provable scientific research to help determine the meaning of life, why we are here, and what, if anything, we should do about it.

  25. avatar Dragonwall says:

    Here we go again these idiot speaking about a certain god permitting prostitution and slavery.

    You can go let someone f**k as long as you pay zakat. I think tomorrow there will be a long line waiting in jakarta lining up to pay their zakat and make those uelamas look like an idiot like you and the short VP. I hope this will not tarnish the image of SBY government because your comment will influence every knowledgeable uelamas who have overlooked this paragraph in the Qur.

    Both of you are an insult to your religion and yourself, or is that considered blasphemously interpreted. Always ever defending their own religion. These pencil dick should be hermitize.

    Perhaps you like lay a bet. You are still living in the world of your religious dreams fantasizing and thinking that your religion will rule supreme and make others their slave! My ass. Knowledgeable as you may want to paint yourself to be but pathetic and hypocracy reign supreme in your religion.

    Putting such remarks into comparison will make any other religion reign supreme above your religion. There will be no such day wil come sort of crap.

    Proven.. Palestine.. Irag.. Iran.. Afghanistan.. Pakistan.. Rambutan.. just name it and you will find how.. and please don’t boast of zombies with islam by their side.

  26. avatar Al-Vn says:

    Hmm, folks! None of these comments are going anywhere. You’re all wastin’ yer time! Those whores ain’t gonna listen to y’all! In fact, I believe we have no need to concern on this issue no more. None of you people are saint! None of you is a nabi. Why so bothering yerself? If you conduct yerself underself, behaving what you think is right religiously, than those girls will find their own path to correct themselves. They exist because we have a number of demand.

    This is one thing we ought to learn from developed countries, we’re always talking about other people’s right or wrong, acting as if we are a holy person. But sometimes we forget about the little things. Stopping at red lights, paying taxes, queue during traffic jam or @ the post office, crossing the street @ zebra cross, making fair and honest financial report, and others. Never tell other people what to do, when you’re still making dirty money, or misbehavin’.

    If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yerself in the mirror, and make a change! That’s what Allah want us to do! Trust me!

  27. avatar Eric says:

    If there is a supreme being who created life and all of us, then He must love and care about all of us or he wouldn’t have created us in the first place. Obviously He wants us to get along and respect each other’s differences, and to tolerate and share and love each other, and allow life to work.

    Religion, on the other, divides us into groups, teaches us to be intolerant of others, to hate others, even to kill others. Those who dogmatically think their religion is the only correct one, demonstrate their extreme ignorance about everything.

  28. avatar AgnostocFlip says:

    Ok, you ban prostitution, Im willing to bet the cases of rape and sexual harassment would significantly increase, and possibly homosexuality. As living organisms, our programming is to survive and replicate, so people, both male and female have sexual urges. You cannot inhibit this by religion or by searching for the divine, for it will only cause cognitive dissonance among the masses, combined with sexual frustration.

  29. avatar Teng says:

    Ok, you ban prostitution, Im willing to bet the cases of rape and sexual harassment would significantly increase, and possibly homosexuality

    I agree with the first part…. but why would homosexuality increase?

    It’s something you’re born with… not something that grows on you or happens when there’s a lack of prostitutes

  30. avatar Anna says:

    I’ll say, why don’t just leave them alone, it’s their choose to be that way, live that way.
    It’s their live between them and GOD, if they don’t bother you then don’t bother them.
    they trying to find a live, try to survive as well as we try our best to live through the day.

    And if this Organization want to stop all this illegal action they do, then they need to find other useful job, that they good at, don’t punish them of what they do.
    sometimes it is not their fault they become “entertainer”. And perhaps if ask one them, probably they will say, it’s “they don’t have a choice…..they just want to survive that’s all.
