"The Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) had threatened to storm SCTV headquarters if it broadcast a movie titled '?', scheduled for the last night of the Ramadan holy fasting month this week.
"'We regret SCTV's decision to not air the movie. The movie has passed the censorship requirements and it doesn't violate any regulations,' broadcasting commission official Ezki Suyanto told AFP on Friday.
"'It seems the station is just afraid of the FPI. SCTV should not have given in to them. This is a bad precedent for other groups to do the same to TV stations.'"
From fears of threats of physical force to political incorrectness, all mass media are afraid of violent islamic groups, and those groups know it.
