A Muslim leader on Friday criticized an Indonesian production company for inviting a Japanese adult video star to appear in its new film, a report said.

Indonesian media reported on Thursday that porn star Maria Ozawa, also known as Miyabi, was to visit Indonesia next month for the shooting of a film titled “Menculik Miyabi” (“Kidnapping Miyabi”) to be produced by Jakarta-based Maxima Pictures.

“I suggest they not use the porn star, even if the film is not pornographic,” Amidhan, chairman of the Indonesian Council of Muslim Scholars, was quoted as saying by the Detik.com news portal.

“It could give Indonesia a bad image for inviting a porn star,” said Amidhan. “It is as if there were no other stars at home.”

In the film, the character played by Ozawa is kidnapped while visiting Jakarta by three Indonesian university students who are infatuated with her.
