Islamic group protests against Pamela Anderson’s disaster helpNovember 1st, 2010 - 10:45 pm ICT by BNO News
JAKARTA, INDONESIA (BNO NEWS) — Actress and model Pamela Anderson has donated $25,000 to an Indonesian charity that helps disaster victims, but the funds have been questioned by the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) because they come from Anderson’s latest Playboy nude photo shoot.
IDF’s Jakarta chairman, Habib Salim Alatas, described the donation as unlawful. “If she wants to do nude shoots, it means she is challenging a bigger disaster to happen in Indonesia. It’s not allowed,” Salim said, explaining that even though Anderson has donated the funds “whole-heartedly,” IDF would refuse the aid because it is a religious prohibition.
“I’ve just shot another Playboy cover that will debut in January for Hugh Hefner, at his request - I adore him,” Anderson had previously stated on her website. “Playboy and I decided to do this, so I could donate earnings from the shoot to Waves for Water.”
“It’s an amazing group that supplies water filters to countries that are in need of clean drinking water. It has already made a huge difference in Indonesia, Pakistan and Haiti. I’m so honored to work with Playboy again to support this life altering cause!” she added.
The FPI is known for their violent tactics. In April 2006, the hard-line Islamic group attacked Playboy’s office in Jakarta by throwing stones. They protested against the first publication of the magazine, even though it contained no nudity.
