A kindergarten in Indonesia has sparked uproar after it reportedly dressed up preschoolers in ISIS costumes and gave them dummy rifles on a parade for Indonesia’s Independence Day, forcing the organizers to apologize.
The parade held in the city of Probolinggo on Saturday, included little preschool girls marching on the street and wearing black from top to bottom with niqabs, while carrying dummy riffles made out of cardboard.
The head of the TK Kartika kindergarten in Probolinggo apologized “deeply” for the costumes, adding that they were not trying to “instil violence” in the children.
The parade was held on Saturday, a day after Independence Day, which was on August 17.
Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world.
Hartatik said that the costumes were props from previous years, and that they used them to save money because what’s important is “to take part in the parade and that the children were happy,” he told BBC Indonesia.
