Indonesia will not follow Malaysia's move to ban Muslims from practicing yoga.
According to The Star, the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) said this was because it did not know the extent to which the exercise is practiced in Indonesia.
MUI deputy chairman Umar Shihab said more research had to be done before a decision can be made to prohibit yoga.
He said the council did not carry out any study on yoga, as it had not received any objection from the public.
MUI edict commission deputy chairman Ali Mustafa Yakub said there was no need to ban yoga as no Muslims were found practicing it in Indonesia.
