Shariah police ticketed 35 women in Indonesia Friday for straddling motorcycles in the latest crackdown on non-Islamic behavior.
When President Obama went to Indonesia last month, he lauded its embrace of democracy in a speech at the University of Indonesia but made clear that equality was essential to its success. "It will be the rights of citizens that will stitch together this remarkable Nusantara [archipelago] ... an insistence that every child born in this country should be treated equally, whether they come from Java or Aceh; from Bali or Papua," he said.
