OPEN APPEAL TO MISS WORLD ORGANIZERS:
I would like to make an appeal to the Miss World Organizers because we have been extremely worried about growing concerns about the Miss World Pageant in Indonesia. Is Indonesia really ready to host the Miss World Pageant? As one of the biggest Miss World fans (self-proclaimed) in the world, I am voicing my concerns to try and protect your pageant. Yes, the fans know and understand the heart of Miss World, but will the extremists take the time to really understand the pageant or will it just be a merciless crusade to show their commitment to their religion which will result in senseless violence? The Miss World Pageant has been getting so much positive publicity and respect in recent years because of the wonderful work Mrs. Morley and the title holders have been doing around the world. We would be devastated if all of this hard work which really strengthened the brand becomes undone because of religious violence. We certainly do no want to see a repeat of 1996, or especially 2002! We will continue your decision to stage the pageant in Indonesia but please ensure that Indonesia is 100% ready to stage a safe and peaceful Miss World Pageant. If not, maybe they are not ready for Miss World this year.
