Japanese AV idol Maria Ozawa's plans to work in Indonesia outrage religious leaders.
The Clerics' Council, Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI), has protested plans to bring Japanese porn star Miyabi to Indonesia to play in the film "Menculik Miyabi" (Kidnapping Miyabi). Miyabi, real name Maria Ozawa, is a hugely successful pornographic film star from Hokkaido, and is of mixed Japanese/French-Canadian descent.

Weighed in the chairman of MUI, Ma'ruf Amin:
Don't employ a porn star, even if the film is not pornographic, unless she has already stopped acting in porno films.
Maruf, not a fan

Maria/Miyabi is expected to arrive in Jakarta in mid October to begin shooting "Menculik Miyabi", which is produced by Maxima Pictures, to be directed by Odi Mulya Hidayat, based on a script by blogger-writer Raditya Dika.
