Three Indonesian housewives have been arrested over an-online-video that claimed President Joko Widodo would ban prayer and make gay marriage legal in Muslim majority country if re-elected, police said. Widodo has fended-off accusations over his Muslim credentials for years, claims that have been revived ahead of April presidential-elections. Indonesia has also been battling a-wave-of fake-news and misinformation campaigns online in lead-up to the polls.
