REPUBLIKA.CO.ID – Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI) asked government to increase the effort on child protection from violence acts and sexual harassment. MUI also asked the House of Representatives (DPR) and Regional Representatives Council (DPD) to draft a bill or revise the existing law.

“Law enforcement and and harsh sanction for perpetrators of violence against children,” acting Chairman of MUI Education Center, Anwar Abbas said in Jakarta on Tuesday (20/5/14).

Abbas pointed that the immoral behaviors against children were related to free access to pornography in this country. MUI asked government to ban all pornography actions, both in print and electronic media.

Child sexual abuse cases increased in Indonesia from time to time. In recent months, several cases have made headlines on the media, following the disclosure of Emon’s cases and the alleged rape of a 6 year old boy committed by janitors at the Jakarta International School (JIS).
