Satire new site Wadiyan plays mind games with us declaring that the Aceh government declared that women are no longer allowed to fart.

The Islamic city council of Aceh, follows the Sharia law has now banned female citizens for passing gas. The major of the city, Sayyid Yahia said that the ban was needed as farting does no go well with the Islamic values of modesty.

“Muslim women are not allowed to fart with sound, it’s against Islamic teachings,” said Yahia.

Meanwhile, the Indonesian Feminists Association told the local media they will attempt to block the law. Truthfully, you don’t need a feminist group to go against this law because it’s really down right delirious!

Sayyid Yahia claims that the law will help save people’s moral and behaviors. “When you see woman fart loud, she appears like a man. But if she sits sideways and pass it quietly, she looks like a woman”.

Funnily, farting is not uncommon among Southeast Asian women as their diet mainly consists of potatoes and peas. Medical doctor, Fathima Khan, a medical doctor at the Al Banni Islamic Hospital in Aceh believes that theres no need to question this practice, let alone regulate it, because people do it for their health and safety”.

Mayor Yahia declined to give details on the punishment for violators of the new law, but the offender could end up receiving up to 20 lashes for small farts and up to 3 months in prison time for larger ones.
