Mukhang hindi na matutuloy si Megan Young sa kanyang pag-alis sana tungong Indonesia para mag-compete a Miss World tilt na sa bansang yun gagawin. As we all know, si Megan ang tinanghal na Miss World bet dito sa local scene.
Di raw kasi pumayag ang mga Indonesian authorities na sa kanilang bansa pumarada ang mga contestants na magsusuot ng skimpy bikinis.
The organizers from Britain headed by Ms. Julia Morley have decided to scrap the swimsuit competition because of this, but the protesting faction will not be appeased.
Mismong si Indonesian Minister Suryadharma Ali ang nagsalita sa isang official statement about this to express their vehement opposition to Miss World: “The Indonesian Ulema Council has expressed strong opposition to Miss World because it doesn’t fit with Islamic teachings that say Muslim women should cover immodest parts of their bodies.”
At the event they succeed in convincing Indonesian authorities to scrap the pageant in their home turf, the Miss World organizers will find it hard to find a replacement venue right away since the coronation night is already scheduled on September 28.
They might just postpone it for next year since they lack time to prepare for a new venue. Which is kind of bad and anti-climactic for Megan since everyone is saying she has a good chance of bagging the Miss World title for our country, for the very first time. Let’s just wish Megan then the best of luck.
