Hard-line Indonesian police shave punks’ Mohawks

Police in Indonesia’s most conservative province recently raided a punk-rock concert and detained 65 fans, buzzing off their spiky mohawks and stripping away body piercings because of the perceived threat to Islamic values.

Dog-collar necklaces and chains were also taken from the youths before they were thrown in pools of water for “spiritual” cleansing, local police chief Iskandar Hasan said.

The crackdown marked the latest effort by authorities to promote strict moral values in Aceh, the only province in this secular but predominantly Muslim nation of 240 million to have imposed Islamic laws.

Here, adultery is punishable by stoning to death. Homosexuals have been thrown in jail or lashed in public with rattan canes. Women are forced to wear headscarves and told, please, no tight pants. It is not clear why police decided to hone in on punks.

Though pierced and tattooed teens have complained for months about harassment, the recent roundup at a concert attended by more than 100 people was by far the biggest and most dramatic bust yet.

印尼最保守省份的警方最近突襲一場龐克搖滾樂演唱會,扣留了六十五名歌迷,剃光他們如尖釘般的雞冠頭,扯掉他們的體環,因為這些行為被視為威脅到伊斯蘭價值。

警方還把這些年輕人身上穿戴的狗項圈頸環和金屬鍊全都拿掉,然後再把他們丟進湖水裡淨化「靈性」,當地警察首長哈山表示。

此次掃蕩是亞齊省當局推動嚴格道德價值的最新行動。印尼有兩億四千萬人口,雖然大多數為穆斯林,但為世俗國家,亞齊省是唯一一個實施伊斯蘭律法的省份。

在這裡,通姦罪可以用投石方式處死。同性戀者曾被關進大牢,或當眾遭到藤條鞭打。婦女被迫戴上頭巾,而且被告知,拜託,別穿緊身褲。但目前並不清楚警方為何決定把焦點鎖定龐克族。

儘管在身體上穿洞和刺青的青少年抱怨遭騷擾已長達數月,最近在這場超過百人參加的演唱會所進行的逮捕行動卻是規模最大、場面也最戲劇化的一次。
