Education Minister Mohammad Nuh asked the publisher withdraw the student worksheet (LKS), which was used in an English III class. The photo of Ozawa, known as Miyabi in Indonesia, appeared on page 36 along photos Indonesian artists and images fauna.

This has prompted the Deputy Governor of East Java to ask the Department of Education to investigate the situation.

Parents were particularly concerned saying, “If it is not withdrawn, we fear it would ruin the student’s morality.”

Ozawa, who is reportedly extremely popular in Indonesia, so much so that filmmakers use her instead of local actresses for their films. So much that filmmakers draw the ire and protests from conservative groups like the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

Even the junior high students, who received the workbook in question, already knew who the Japanese porn star was already.

The workbook has been withdrawn.
