Maria Eva, deeply religious woman and star of the Golkar porn flick, a hive of contradictions.
Maria Eva, or Maria Ireva, 29, usually called Merry, from Sidoarjo in East Java, is the dangdut singer and sometime sinetron actress who appeared in the raunchy sex recording with Golkar parliamentarian Yahya Zaini.
Her name has cropped up here once before, when she was reported to have attended a gathering of the Muhammadiyah branch of Surabaya on November 11th 2006 whereupon it was announced by Din Syamsuddin that a Muslim (inner) beauty contest would be held. Maria, along with other local celebrities, Cici Tegal, Yolanda Yusuf, and Ozzy Saputra, put in an appearance to show her support of the idea.

Maria Eva, it appears, is not only active in the religious activities of Muhammadiyah, but also in Partai Golkar on a long term basis. She is said to belong to the youth wing of Golkar and has made herself useful at a number of Golkar events. L6 Controversy has sometimes ensued. In 2005 she entered into a legal dispute with the wife of a DPR member - Maria claimed that her good name had been besmirched by the woman. Both of the women reported the other to the police. gatra
Maria, who was born Maria Ulfah, has fairly good religious credentials. She has been on the pilgrimage to Mecca, twice, both in and out of the Hajj season, and spent much time in prayer, contemplation, and communication with God, in the Holy Land of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. poskota
I tell God about whatever is buried within my heart.
Maria is still a virgin, it seems, because she is not yet married, and she claims to be unafraid of the prospect of being a "perawan tua", literally "old virgin", or more likely "old spinster", preferring instead to just "go with the flow" of life.
What's important for me is to just go along in life so long as God gives me health and opportunities.
