Miss World

i read on the news that today an islamic beauty pageant started in jakarta, named world muslimah. this in reaction to miss world, where women are selected based on their outer beauty by showing off their bodies (in small bikinis, etc..). to participate in the islamic version you need to be wearing the islamic head covering in daily life, and you need to be good at koran reading. apart from that, the contestants need to be "smart, pious and stylish". i dont know about the age limit, but the ladies above might be too old already.....?
although the above is a very common sight here in amsterdam when the weather is pleasant, its currently much too cold (and rainy. and windy), to have a get-together like this outside...
