JAKARTA, INDONESIA - FEBRUARY 6: An Indonesian man stubs a cigarette on February 6, 2009 in Jakarta, Indonesia. The Ulema Council, the top Islamic body in Indonesia, passed a 'fatwa' or religious edict restricting Muslims from smoking in public places last week. Whilst optional and non-binding, those non-compliant are considered sinful. Indonesia is the fifth largest tobacco market globally, and tobacco taxes make up around 10 per cent of the government's income. (Photo by Dimas Ardian/Getty Images)
