An Independence Day parade of kindergarten children in Indonesia in costumes of niqabs and assault rifles shocked the public (see video below).

The principal of the school apologized, saying the school already had the “costumes” and gun replicas and were only trying to “cut costs for the parents.”

Digging herself in further, the principal said the props had been used in previous parades to teach about the Prophet Mohammed’s faith and beliefs. She denied that the niqabs and assault rifles promoted extremism and sanctioned violence.

Her comments were met with derision on Indonesian social media, reported The Straits Times.

Indonesia, home to largest Muslim population in the world, is considered a “moderate” and model Muslim country, although events in recent years have belied that description.
