Aceh is contemplating a ban on tight pants, but only for women.

What do you think?

Women may soon be banned from wearing tight trousers in parts of an Indonesian province that practices strict Islamic law, and offenders could see their attire cut up. Aceh is the only province in predominantly Muslim Indonesia to use Islamic sharia for its legal code. The previous provincial government passed a controversial law in September allowing adulterers to be stoned to death.

Now Ramli Mansyur, regent of a district in West Aceh, said on Tuesday he plans to introduce a regulation forcing women to wear Muslim dress, which could come into effect in December.

Hmm I think Indonesia has bigger problems they should be worrying about rather then tight pants. Some priorities..

Ohhhh no. I don't think they should make differentiations between locals and tourists. That's a logistical nightmare, and if you really want a place to be Islamic, it defeats the whole purpose of the law!
