Bikinis banned at Miss World pageant in Indonesia


(Reuters) - Miss World contestants will not wear bikinis when they vie for the pageant's crown in Indonesia this September to avoid causing offence in the world's most populous Muslim country. 
Miss World organizers said the 137 women in the competition will instead wear one-piece swimwear, some of which will also have sarongs over the top. 
"This is perfectly reasonable in a country that prefers one-piece swimwear," London-based Miss World Organization Chairwoman Julia Morley told Reuters on Thursday.

Morley denied suggestions the decision to ditch bikinis was made after local complaints about the contest. 
However, reports in Indonesian newspapers said a number of conservative groups had taken issue with the staging of the contest, highlighting bikinis as a key objection. 
The Jakarta Post reported on Monday that deputy tourism minister, Sapta Nirwandar, said the government had also asked Miss World to follow Indonesian tradition. 
"Some people in Indonesia still consider it taboo for women to wear bikinis and outfits that expose body parts," the paper quoted Nirwandar as saying on its website. 
Over the past year other entertainment events have been disrupted in Indonesia due to threats by Muslim organizations. 
Pop star Lady Gaga was forced last year to pull out of a concert after a hardline Muslim group threatened to disrupt her show, saying her performances were immoral. 
Last month veteran U.S. rock band Aerosmith cancelled a concert in Jakarta citing security concerns. 
The 63rd Miss World pageant will be held on September 28 in Jakarta, the capital of a country where nearly 90 percent of its 240 million people consider themselves to be Muslims. 
The Miss World contest dates back to 1951 and during its first decade the outfits of contestants raised eyebrows and grabbed headlines while building a growing audience for its televised show.

About Me

Educated in England, Khan was revered as one of cricket's greatest stars, and at the height of his fame he was a fixture on the social circuit of London's elite, acquiring the nickname of “the playboy prince.” Few would dispute that Imran was the finest cricketer Pakistan has produced, or the biggest heartthrob of his time. Suave, erudite and monstrously talented, he gave cricket in the subcontinent real sex appeal in the 1970s and 1980s. As such he and TV completed the popularisation of the game in Pakistan which Hanif Mohammad and the radio had begun. Thousands, if not millions, who had never dreamt of bowling fast on heartless baked mud of the subcontinent, suddenly wanted to emulate or imitate Imran and his lithe bounding run, his lion's leap and his reverse-swinging yorker. He also made himself into an all-rounder worth a place for his batting alone, and arguably the world's second-best allrounder after Garry Sobers. He took a mediocre side and transformed the Pakistani cricket team into world-beaters, leading them to the World Cup title in 1992. He is indisputably the greatest cricketer to emerge from Pakistan, his averages (37 with the bat, 22 with the ball) put him at the top of the quartet of all-rounders (Ian Botham, Richard Hadlee and Kapil Dev being the others) who dominated Test cricket in the 1980s. And whereas Botham declined steadily, Imran just got better and better: in his last 10 years of international cricket he played 51 Tests, averaging a sensational 50 with the bat and 19 with the ball. He gave no quarter during some memorable battles with West Indies - Pakistan drew three series with them at a time when everybody else was being bounced out of sight - and he led Pakistan to their first series victory in England in 1987, taking 10 for 77 with an imperious display in the decisive victory at Headingley. After retirement from cricket he remained a high profile figure - with his marriage with the British socialite Jemima Goldsmith - the daughter of late billionaire Sir James Goldsmith and Lady Annabel. They had two children and nine years later they divorced, amicably. His political life began in 1996 with the creation of his political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice), and then he successfully moved into the labyrinthine world of Pakistan politics. His greatest success here has been as a fundraiser, establishing the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in 1996 and a college namely Namal College in 2008 with funds he raised. None of the other political parties came close to what he collected recently in flood relief funds, during then the Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie visited Pakistan to help the flood victims and she quoted seeing him: ''I have seen Imran Khan sitting in the ground eating and talking with the flood victims, only a man of his stature could do it, he can change the destiny of Pakistani people''.

"My message to you all is of hope, courage and confidence. Let us mobilize all our resources in a systematic and organized way and tackle the grave issues that confront us with grim determination and discipline worthy of a great nation."

These words are as true today as they were 66 years ago when Quaid-E-Azam uttered them on 24th October, 1947. 

In this post election environment and in the midst of all that has happened in recent days. Let us not forget the task at hand which is the prosperity of Pakistan. We must make compromises for the sake of our goals so long as we Do NOT make any compromises on our goals. The historic turnout in these general elections, irrespective of the end result shows us that this nation is alive and ready to put its elected leaders to task if they do not perform. We must, at all cost, continue to author our destiny and that of generation to follow so tomorrow we can say that irrespective of all the adversities, I played my part and did what I could for my fellow countryman.
