Your Daily Muslim #725: Evendi Latif

Banda Aceh, Indonesia’s sharia police chief, Evendi Latif, really hates fun. It’s not his fault, though – his Islamic faith is responsible for his sour attitude. Envious of those whose beliefs don’t prohibit them from enjoying themselves, Latif has used the law as a means to exact revenge on those who don’t ascribe to oppressive […]

Your Daily Muslim #723: Illiza Saaduddin Djamal (Part 2)

Last time we looked at Banda Aceh, Indonesia mayor Illiza Saaduddin Djamal, she was rounding up punks and putting them in re-education camps. Now, the menacing Muslimah is targeting other groups: gamblers, women who have sex outside of marriage, and Hindus. Recently, 34 people were sentenced to public caning for various offenses, ranging from gambling […]

Your Daily Muslim #718: Rachmawati Rahimah Thaib

Indonesian-born Muslimah Rachmawati Rahimah Thaib, who now resides in London, isn’t a fan of facts. Ranging from her support of sunnah treatments for cancer (read: pseudoscience) to her claim that terrorist Adem Karadag is actually an American infidel, Thaib’s unwillingness to accept reality knows no bounds.

Your Daily Muslim #679: Illiza Saaduddin Djamal

Ramadan is in full swing. During this time of year, Muslims add to their collective irritability by depriving themselves of basic nutrition for most of the day. In Jakarta, selling food between dawn and 4pm during Ramadan is prohibited because it would encourage people to make proper health decisions instead of letting an ancient fairytale […]

Your Daily Muslim #668: Hasanuddin AF

It’s been a while since I put a “death to gays” Muslim on here. Of course, the religion of peace has given me no shortage of candidates to choose from. This idiot from Indonesia really stood out. Enjoy! Hasanuddin AF, the head of Indonesia’s leading Islamic clerical organization, recently issued a fatwa advocating for gays […]

Your Daily Muslim #664: Mochamad Fuad Basya

Indonesian major-general and military spokesman Mocha-mad Fuad Basya should spend his time gorging himself on the beverage he was named after instead of interfering with women’s personal business. The Indonesian military currently carries out “virginity tests” on female applicants, in which two fingers are inserted into the recruit’s vagina to determine whether or not she’s […]
