Jakarta, 28 March (AKI) - The mini-skirts is pornographic, according to Indonesian Religious Affairs Minister, Suryadharma Ali.
Skirts hemmed above the knee will be included in a government task force's definition of pornography, according to news reports.
"There must be a set of universal criteria to define something as pornographic, of which one will be when someone wears a skirt above the knee," Suryadharma, said on the margins of a Lower House hearing, the Jakarta Post reported on Wednesday.
The task force is creating a working definition of pornography that the government will rely on in the future to enforce indecency laws.
After standard has been set, the task force would apply it nationwide across all ethnicities, he said, according to the report.
