The new Miss Malaysia World 2013 is Melinder Kaur Bhullar, 20. She won the coveted title last night during a gala grand finale. The contest was marred by four Muslim contestants being barred from participating by a decree from the Malaysian Islamic National Fatwa Council Committee. Quel ironic, as Miss World 2013 will take place in the largest Muslim country in the world.

Just to make it clear: Indonesia is NOT an Islamic country (or else we won't have any pageant here) and there hasn't any official statement from the government against the swimsuit portion. Even thought there are many hardliners who are against Miss World being held here, most people don't care. Any decision regarding the swimsuit session (or any session) is from the organizers' own discretion. Thanks!
