A further vote on the extramarital sex bill has been postponed. Story. As protest marches have been mounted, story. The proposed laws are expected to apply to foreign tourists as well (story), which has raised concern about visits to popular destinations such as Bali. The religion of the population of Indonesia is 87% Islam (here) and conservative and fundamental Muslims are in support of these type of proposals, which would be especially welcome in provinces such as Aceh (story) which follow Islamic, Sharia law.
