Moderate Muslim Alert: Indonesian School Board to make virginity tests part of admission requirements

A plan by the Education Agency of Prabumulih, South Sumatra, to include virginity tests as part of its high school admission requirements has drawn the ire of legislators and education experts, who say that such an exam is a violation of personal space and an obstruction to a student’s right to an education.

H.M. Rasyid, the chief of Prabumulih’s Education Agency, told the Indonesian news portal on Monday that increasing instances of premarital sex and prostitution among female students prompted the move.
