In this Friday, Sept. 6, 2013 photo, Muslim women hold posters reading: Indonesia is not America, left, and Reject Miss World, during a protest demanding the cancellation of the Miss World pageant, in Jakarta, Indonesia. Beauty queens and backstage drama may seem inevitable, but at this year's Miss World competition, something more serious than hair-pulling and name-calling has come from host country Indonesia: Muslim hardliners have threatened to hijack the competition despite major concessions from the government and organizers.
