MISS WORLD 2013 CONTESTANTS WON'T BE WEARING BIKINI DUE TO PRESSURE FROM MUSLIMS IN INDONESIA

Organisers of Miss Wrld beauty pageant have confirmed that the 137 women competing in the event, which will be held in Bali this year, will not be wearing the usual bikini during the beach wear section of the competition.  Sorry guys.

The contestants are being asked to cover up in the swimsuit section, so as not to offend Muslims in Indonesia. The ladies will wear more conservative beachwear such modest one pieces, accessorised with traditional sarongs and hats for the beach fashion section.

A  prominent Muslim cleric, Mukri Aji, said, “that contest is just an excuse to show women’s body parts that should remain covered.”

The Miss World Organisation chairwoman Julia Morely said: "I don't want to upset or get anyone in a situation where we are being disrespectful. We treasure respect for all the countries that take part in the pageant. I did make sure to conform to the rules in Indonesia, which I thought were perfectly reasonable rules. “I’m working with 137 countries, and all of them have different rules.”
