Few months ago, the Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI) rejected a plan by Japanese Porn Star Miyabi a.k.a Maria Ozawa to play in an Indonesian comedy film: Menculik Miyabi (Kidnapping Miyabi).
As a result, the film producer Maxima Production was forced to stopped the making of said film.
Recently, MUI Samarinda, East Kalimantan, has rejected a Horror film produced by the said producer i.e Suster Keramas (Hair Washing Nurse) stared by another Japanese Porn Star Rin Sakuragi(20).
According to MUI Samarinda the film is not worth watching because it is not educative and might cause decadence among young people in Indonesia. The decision was supported by MUI Jakarta.
Meanwhile Maxima Production who has scheduled to screen the film all over Indonesia on 31 December 2009, refused to give any comment because they haven't heard about the said rejection.

Considering the new Film Law and the Anti-Pornography Law, it would be interesting to know the development of this matter.
