Forget the Hair Club for Men. It’s time for the Hair Club for Mohammed (he’s not only the prophet, he’s also a member).
Whereas the Hair Club for Men costs thousands for complete hair transplants, with each follicular insertion costing several dollars a piece, the Hair Club for Muslims won’t put you in hock. Instead, you hock your daughter. . . or someone else’s daughter. At least, that’s what they do in Jakarta, Indonesia (the country with the world’s largest Muslim population).
A man in Klaten, Central Java says he sold an underage girl as a prostitute in order to pay for his hair treatments.
Mardi, 21, was detained on Wednesday. Police said he had acted as a pimp for a 15-year-old girl named WE. The police were tipped off by local residents who grew suspicious after noticing that the girl often went to a hotel with different men.
According to police, Mardi confessed that he had sold WE to four men. Each of them paid him between Rp 70 thousand ($7.67) and Rp 100 thousand. The men were later detained and named as suspects in human trafficking.
Mardi told Metro TV he needed money to pay for his hair smoothing treatment.
“We are investigating the possibility that WE is not the only girl he sold. Our investigators from the women and children’s protection unit are questioning the victim,” said Klaten Police head detective Edy Sitepu.
As reader Worry01 notes:
We keep hearing about the superiority of Islamic Family Values.
Yup, we keep hearing about it, but it’s not exactly what comes to fruition. On the other hand. You have a family, they harvest the Islamic, uh, “value” of it.
Alhamdillullah [praise allah] Islamic modesty and haute coiffure combined into one.
