Indramayu Regency Regulation No. 7 of 2005 on the Prohibition on Alcoholic Beverages in Indramayu Regency

This regional regulation prohibits the production, distribution, sale, stockpiling, storage, and consumption of alcholic beverages in Indramayu regency. Moreover, it categorically prohibits any person or entity from bringing alcholic beverages into Indramayu regency. Contravention of this regulation can result in up to six months' imprisonment or a fine of up to IDR 50 million. While the regulation arguably seeks to Islamise the region, it justifies its blanket prohibition on alcohol, not on the grounds of religious (Islamic) norms, but on the grounds that alcohol constitutes a hazard to people's health, a threat to the future of the next generation and the nation, and disrupts societal security and order.
