Bogor’s Mayor Cowers From Bigotry – West Java Shamed AGAIN!

Disgusting tale of bigotry, from Bogor, West Java, today, no surprise, alas, because that city’s Mayor Bima Arya has a miserable record of cowering from fanatics, despite his pre-election reputation as a ‘pluralist’ and ‘moderate.’


Now he’s banned the Shiite minority from holding their annual Ashura event today.

Because a bunch of Islamist fanatics want it banned, and Hizonna lacks the guts to order his plentiful civic militia to safeguard freedom of religion!

Again, no surprise, because the militia, known here as the SatPol PP, have a shameful record in that respect, better known for enforcing Bogor’s illegal prevention of Christians from worshipping in their own church!

Mayor Bima’s the bright boy who summed up that issue by telling the GKI Yasmin congregation that they don’t exist, so why should he act justly towards them!

No matter both the Supreme Court and the National Ombudsman both found in favour of the ‘non-existent’ Christians!.

This latest grovelling by authorities comes after shocking scenes in Bandung, also West Java, where would-be celebrants were forced by hard-liners to cut short a similar event.

An odd phrase, ‘hardliners.’  


A more accurate term might be sectarian savages, unhindered by the police.  

A mere 120 people claiming to be “defending” the dominant Sunni interpretation of the faith interrupted an Ashura celebration at the Sidolig sports stadium, forcing an early end to the event attended by thousands of people.

This victory for jihadist louts occurred despite the presence of a thousand cops, all armed and trained but evidently over-awed by the evil intolerants, because although they prevented the hard-liners from entering, still the law-abiding Shia had to be escorted out of the stadium.

The Jakarta Globe journo must have a sense of humour, because he writes that it was not immediately clear why the massive police force didn’t prevent the activists from disturbing the event.

  • The report adds a pathetic confession of police indifference from Bandung’s top cop, a person clearly given to mealy-mouthed piffle – the important thing was that everybody was safe.

No, not so – the important thing is that religious liberty was crushed once more, because nobody gave the order to the police on duty to draw their guns and subdue the scum.

“Our duty was to ensure security,” he said. “We had prepared a thousand officers.”

But the worshippers were denied the security they had a right to expect, because the 1000 officers didn’t maintain security- they let the jihadist jerks attain their obnoxious objective!

I see President Jokowi is currently out of town, visiting Obama.

Well, he won’t benefit much from that rat, a cultural marxist who gives not a fig for freedom of religion.

But a lot of Indonesians do care about their country’s reputation. And they are wondering when Jokowi will live up to his pluralist promises made during his election campaign.

Noody wants action replays of his predecessor’s supine record. SBY to ask the world to ban blasphemy | The Jakarta Post SBY’s pandering to Islamist extremists was an embarrassment, not least when he urged the world to adopt an international ‘blasphemy law,’ replicating the draconian statute here under which an innocent Shia cleric was sentenced to prison for preaching his own faith.

If only Jokowi would order his National Police to enforce that Supreme Court ruling in Bogor, and to confront the foes of freedom who pollute his beautiful archipelago.
