I cannot believe it has almost been 1 year

since the tsunami. And according to this Sharia judge the tsunami hit because of women.

MARLUDDIN JALIL, a Sharia judge who has ordered the punishment of women for not wearing headscarves, was uncompromising: “The tsunami was because of the sins of the people of Aceh.”
Thundering into a microphone at a gathering of wives, he made clear where he felt the fault lay: “The Holy Koran says that if women are good, then a country is good.”
A year after the disaster which many see as a divine punishment, emboldened Islamic hardliners are doing their best to eradicate sin — and women are their prime targets.

If we can get away from the hoo haa Muslims are eeeevil language of the article, this does give us something to think about. To update on last weeks post about how women are more affected by natural disasters, what have the local effects of the tsunami been on women?
Clearly in this part of Indonesia, not so good. Read the article.
