Maria Ozawa, Miyabi, Indonesia, and the MUI





On the completely unimportant news front, Maria Ozawa, or as she is better known, Miyabi (all images freely available on the internet), has made a trip to Indonesia and is to appear in a film. Now, before you get all hot and bothered, and despite her claim to fame as a recognized porn film star from Japan, the film is not to be porn. That said, the title of the film is "Kidnap Miyabi." So, perhaps the Indonesian producers of the film are capitalizing on her fame as a porn star.

I wonder would this film contravene the provisions of the new film law?

Nevertheless, the Indonesian Ulema Council (Majelis Ulama Indonesia / MUI) an organization that considers itself as spokesperson for all things Islam and Muslim, has decided that Maria Ozawa appearing in an Indonesian film is going to damage Indonesia's standing in the rest of the world. Although, I would have thought that any damage in the eyes of God might have been something more to fear.

It is a little bizarre that the MUI is worried that a Japanese porn star is going to damage Indonesia's standing in the world community, but seem less worried, or actually not worried at all, that the passage of regional legislation in Aceh that permits stoning of adulterers is not going to damage Indonesia's standing.

It would seem that the MUI is worried what message this sends to the world community, namely: that Indonesia has to import porn stars to appear in Indonesian non-porn films. Besides, it is not like Indonesia does not have some home grown porn stars that it could have turned to for this role, is it?

Hmmmm ....
I wonder whether those guys at MUI really hate looking at her photos.

Hahaha, I like your sense of humor in the last paragraph.

Hahahaha. Sorry Rob, but I can't stop laughing.

This shows how hypocrite some people really are. That also means it is OK to download Miyabi videos when Ramadhan is over.

Although I respect the Muslims and Islam, some people (not all - don't want to be accused for stereotyping here) make me wonder on how they'd turn into a holy saint ONLY during Ramadhan month.

There are simply a lot of "promises" like this that tells other Muslims to "behave" just in this holy month, and once the Eid celebration is over, they could go back to their devil self.

I do not know and that is not really the point. The point was more to the idea of damaging Indonesia's reputation in the world.

Pramudya...

I try :D

EK...

Yes, I guess it does. Yes, back to one's old ways and then a ritual cleansing again at the next Ramadan.

I know Julia Perez would probably feel so offended that MUI never made a big deal out of her being so 'out there' all the time that we had to import a pornstar from Japan to get those guys to wake up and start working again.

You think? Then perhaps Ms. Perez should go to Japan and invade Maria Ozawa's home turf and make a quality porn flick.

Just to return the favor of course :D

I love her as a porn star. She should stick to porn. I don't want to see her doing horror movies or kidnap films. Her fans will soon lose interest in her if she continues this spiral into straight dull movies. I wish she'd go back to DAS and do some really hard films.

Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. Comments are always appreciated.

I generally ask my anonymous commenters to adopt a pen name, or something, so that I can distinguish one commenter from another.

I am sure there are plenty of people out there who enjoy her porn films and would like to see her back in that genre as soon as possible.

Can't blame the girl for wanting to branch out though, can you?
