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.

    There are more important laws to regulate, than to stop women from farting out loud. Health care, welfare, education etc. So what if a woman farts loudly in public? Arrest her? What a waste of time and citizen’s money. Regulate something beneficial to the society. Anyway, why would anyone, especially women to fart out loud in the very first place, that leads to the implementation of such law?! Understands that it is part of Sharia Law, but do you really need to flash it out and implement it? People are dying of hunger, rising of poverty, inflation, corruption etc. “Let’s stop women from farting out loud first.”

  • Holy Cow, I thought this was a joke!

    They have police to regulate this kind of behavior? REALLY?

  • someone, not from your country…

    with that Indonesian Government will go down with their farts.. xD

    What a horrible joke! Yet another way of subjugating women. Why can’t the Shariah Law instead devote itself to really more significant issues such as lowering maternal mortality, increasing women’s literacy and giving women livelihood opportunities.
