Indonesians told to tune out the gossip

A Muslim edict calls celebrity TV “un-Islamic”


 

It’s the latest in a series of contentious edicts: Indonesia’s highest Islamic authority—the Indonesian Ulema Council—says Muslims be barred from watching television gossip shows. The shows are said to be ruinous to society because they give away too much information about people’s private lives. The crack-down was sparked by a celebrity sex clip scandal that dominated TV news in the past month.
