A Good Sign

The Publishers of Playboy in Indonesia are not being pushed down by the hardline Muslims
The publishers of Indonesia's version of Playboy magazine defied militant Islamists yesterday by producing their second issue.

The first edition in April sparked mob violence and the glossy magazine's offices were stoned. Its editors have now moved to the majority-Hindu island of Bali, where they have produced a 100,000-copy second issue.

Although Indonesia's Muslim majority is largely moderate, there is a trend towards the imposition of sharia law.

Playboy's publishers said they were producing the magazine to defend democracy and freedom of expression against fear and intolerance.

An editorial called for "the absence of a monopoly set of values and views in our beloved country".

The magazine is tamer than its western version. Pictures of scantily clad models replace nudity.

But news stands in Jakarta did not display copies openly. "We sell them more discreetly," said one vendor.

Sexy and free speech can be one of the very best combinations, may the limits of free speech be stretched even more.
