Indonesian Police Question Playboy Editors

By ZAKKI HAKIM, Associated Press

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Police questioned the editors of an Indonesian version of Playboy on Thursday after complaints by Muslim groups that the toned-down magazine violated the law, a police spokesman said.

The move comes as the editor-in-chief of the magazine, Erwin Arnada, said it may stop publishing in the world's most populous Muslim nation after rock-throwing protesters targeted its offices and advertisers pulled their ads.

Police spokesman Col. Ketut Untung Yoga said officers were interrogating several editors from the magazine, including Arnada, but gave no details.

Arnada said late Wednesday that he and 10 other members of the editorial team were to be questioned in response to charges by Islamic groups that the magazine violates articles of the criminal code regulating distribution of materials that "violate morality."

The articles carry a maximum penalty of 16 months in jail.

Previously, police and government ministers said the country had no laws to ban the magazine, the first edition of which featured no nude pictures and was less risque than other local and international magazines already for sale in Indonesia.

The row over the emergence of Playboy is a part a larger debate in Indonesia over the extent that Islam should play in public life. The country is traditionally moderate and secular, but in recent years has seen the emergence of a vocal conservative fringe who want to make the country an Islamic state and see themselves as arbiters of public morality.

Most of its critics say the name of the magazine alone is grounds for the government to ban it.

"I keep telling them (the magazine's critics) to please review my magazine and compare it with ... adult men's lifestyle magazines already in Indonesia," Arnada told Dow Jones Newswires in an interview. "But they keep telling me to change the name 'Playboy,' not the content. It's ridiculous."

He said 26 corporate advertisers involved in the first issue have refused to continue placing ads because of the protests. The advertisers were not immediately available for comment.

Arnada said he and other staffers have received letters, text messages and phone calls promising unspecified "physical action and legal action" if publication continues.

"I'm concerned about my employees," he said.

AA GYM: MAJALAH PLAYBOY PERMALUKAN BANGSA INDONESIA

"Dari judulnya saja, majalah itu tidak mendidik bahkan memberikan beban persolan baru bagi bangsa Indonesia," ujar Aa Gym.

Jakarta (Antara News) - Penerbitan Majalah Playboy di Indonesia telah mencoreng dan mempermalukan bangsa Indonesia yang penduduknya mayoritas Muslim, kata Dai Kondang Abdullah Gymnastiar.

"Kita malu dengan bangsa lain dan penerbitan majalah Playboy ini telah mencoreng wajah Indonesia," ujar Dai yang akrab disapa AA Gym seusai memberikan ceramah peringatan Maulid Nabi Muhammad di Wisma ANTARA, Minggu.

Pasalnya, Majalah Playboy tersebut bertentangan dengan nilai-nilai budaya ketimuran bangsa Indonesia dan dapat merusak moral generasi bangsa, katanya.

"Dari judulnya saja, majalah itu tidak mendidik bahkan memberikan beban persolan baru bagi bangsa Indonesia," ujar Aa Gym yang mengaku merasa malu dengan bangsa-bangsa lain, terutama dengan negara-negara yang penduduknya mayoritas beragama Islam.

Lebih lanjut dia mengatakan, kehadiran Majalah Playboy yang bersimbolkan gambar kelinci ini sama sekali tidak memberikan hal-hal terbaik kepada masyarakat Indonesia dan meminta pemerintah agar menarik penerbitannya.

Aa Gym juga berharap pemberitaan media dapat membantu masyarakat menemukan solusi atas berbagai persoalan yang dihadapi, bukan justru menambah persoalan baru.

Menurut dia, banyak media massa saat ini cenderung menampilkan hal-hal yang kurang mendidik.

Selain Aa Gym, reaksi keras juga disampaikan berbagai elemen masyarakat. Ketua Umum Front Pembela Islam, Habib Riziek, misalnya, mengambil langkah hukum untuk menghentikan peredaran majalah ini.

Majelis Mujahidin Indonesia (MMI) pun secara terang-terangan menolak penerbitan serta peredaran majalah yang dipimpin Erwin Arnada itu.

Bahkan, Ketua Departemen Data dan Informasi MMI, Fauzan Al Anshori, mengatakan, pihaknya telah melayangkan somasi dan memberi waktu tujuh hari kepada pengelolanya agar menarik dan menghentikan penerbitan majalah ini.

Jika dalam kurun waktu itu, pengelolanya tidak mematuhi somasi MMI, maka persoalannya akan diadukan ke aparat hukum, katanya.

Dia menjelaskan, pihaknya melakukan somasi dan akan mengajukan pengelola majalah ini ke proses hukum karena ada unsur pronografi dalam isi majalah ini. Terbitan perdana majalah ini memuat foto sensual artis Andhara Early.

Bahkan, kata dia, lebih 15 halaman yang terdapat dalam Majalah Playboy telah memenuhi unsur delik kejahatan terhadap kesusilaan.

Pihaknya telah melakukan pertemuan dengan Pemred Majalah Playboy Erwin Arnada. Erwin dinilai tidak memegang komitmennya saat melakukan pertemuan sebanyak dua kali dengan MMI. Saat melakukan pertemuan, Pemred Majalah Playboy itu telah menyatakan tidak akan menerbitkan majalah tersebut.(*)

In fact, if wanting to be paid attention to not only the playboy magazine that must be protested against the publication, but had several similar magazines that the contents was more pornographic...
