Valentine’s Day: Indonesian Mayor cracks down on condom sales




The mayor of a city on Indonesia’s Sulawesi Island raided convenience stores selling condoms on the eve of Valentine’s Day.

According to local media, the mayor of Makassar, Mohammad Pomanto, complained during snap inspections of minimarts that stores were selling condoms “like they were candy.’’

“Valentine’s Day is a day of love but it doesn’t mean people can do anything in the name of love. It’s not about Valentine’s Day but it’s about moral degradation,’’ he said, adding that stores that sold condoms freely to unmarried teenagers would have their permits revoked.

2016 the mayor issued a circular requiring stores in the largest city in eastern Indonesia to sell condoms only to married people.

Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim-majority country where conservative views about sex prevail.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
