Pekanbaru Municipal Regulation No. 12 of 2008 on Social Order

This regional regulation is an example of a legislative instrument that arguably seeks to Islamise public life without making any express reference to Islam or religion. It prohibits vagrancy and begging, adultery, promiscuity, and prostitution (facilitating and soliciting), while art 1(13) therein defines 'social order' as a peaceful social situation that accords with current norms, and religious and cultural order values.
