Bali won't enforce porn law

INDONESIA'S mainly Hindu island of Bali has no intention of enforcing a controversial anti-porn law passed last year because it conflicts with local culture and tradition, the provincial governor said in an email interview.

Pluralism and religious freedom have become election issues in predominantly Muslim, officially secular Indonesia.

Centuries-old traditions including outdoor bathing would also have to be banned if the law was properly enforced, added the governor, a former police chief who led investigations into deadly bomb attacks by Islamic militants on Bali.
