Muslims are forbidden to drink alcohol according to Sharia Law. Nevertheless, some jihadists in Indonesia rang in the New Year by drinking deadly suicide bomber bootleg whiskey with a twist of methanol.
According to Channel News Asia, "Sixteen Indonesians have died and nine are fighting for their lives after drinking bootleg alcohol to celebrate New Year's Eve on the main island of Java, police said on Monday."
Blending methanol with whiskey has become more popular on the Muslim-dominated island of Java. Some are calling it, 'Jihad Whiskey.'
As reported by Channel NewsAsia, "Police have arrested a couple who are suspected of producing and distributing the alcohol to roadside stalls in the town of Mojokerto in eastern Java, where the victims bought it. It is thought the locally produced alcohol, believed to be made from palm tree sap or rice, contained poisonous methanol, Awi Setiyono, police spokesman for East Java province, told AFP."
Setiyono is quoted as saying that, "We suspect that drink contains methanol but we can only confirm that after we have the results of laboratory tests."
