In the Indonesian island of Bali, the ruling Islamist crackpots have issued a fatwa against … yoga. If I spent all day, I could probably come up with something less threatening than yoga. Fresh fruit perhaps? Linus from Peanuts? I suppose it’s considered relentlessly pagan or at odds with the principles of Sharia Law or some such.
Anyhow, as Passport notes, this isn’t a particularly wise mandate since Bali aspires to be the tropical destination of choice for health-and-spirituality types. The good news is that, like most prohibitions, this one has only made Indonesians more interested in Yoga.
