Indonesian Police SHAVE, DETAIN, CLEANSE Concertgoers

Okay, so this isn’t persecution again metalheads of the world but it could be.  Especially if you live in Indonesia.

This past Wednesday, in Banda Aceh, Indonesia, Indonesian police officers raided a punk rock show, detained fans, and forcibly shaved off their mohawks. Body piercings were stripped off, dog-collars and chains were dumped into pools of water for “spiritual cleansing.” And, the reason behind all of this? These punkheads were considered a  “threat” to Islamic values, and the social order.

When interviewed about the concert crackdown, police chief Iskandar Hasan stated, “We’re not torturing anyone. We’re not violating human rights. We’re just trying to put them back on the right moral path.”  Meanwhile, concertgoers were assembled in droves, and individually shaven. One atteendee expressed, in terror, “Why? Why my hair?! We didn’t hurt anyone. This is how we’ve chosen to express ourselves. Why are they treating us like criminals?”  To read the article in it’s entirety, head over to Metal Injection.
