UK Ambassador in Jakarta Joins Muslim ‘Mass Movement!’

And even more surprised to read that Her Britannic Majesty’s Ambassador in Jakarta is now a member of the NU. During the signing of the MoU, Malik was awarded honorary NU membership for being a foreign Muslim who promotes moderate Islamic values.UK, NU sign MoU to promote religious tolerance –

Mr. Moazzam Malik is said to be a very pleasant gent, and no doubt tries his best to win friends and influence people all over Indonesia.




But after recent events, with a moronic mob of Islamist bigots in Bekasi, one of Jakarta’s satellite cities, preventing the construction of a Christian church which has all the permits and approvals required by law…

…and the brazen denial of religious liberty in Subang… …

…my rapidly decreasing ability to be surprised was tapped once more by His Excellency’s words as quoted in the Jakarta Post, viz. Indonesia had firsthand experience in promoting pluralism and moderation in religious practice.

Having spent several Sundays in recent years across from the Presidential Palace in downtown Jakarta, with the GKI Yasmin Protestants forced to worship on the road because the Government of Indonesia refuses to enforce its own Supreme Court’s ruling in favour of the dispossessed congregants…

 …I would welcome some clarification of the Ambassador’s assertion.

However, let’s move on, examining the NU, of which he’s now a proud member.


Nu Nahdlotul Ulama


I’ve covered their activities often enough over the past decade, and they are certainly among the better Islamic outfits in the archipelago. Their youth wing, Banser, are noted for their courage in standing up to foul fanatics.

Only a month or two ago I noted approvingly  that ‘the IslamoNazi FPI was facing significant resistance in Banyumas, Central Java.’ Bravo, Banyumas! Decent Muslims Stand Up To IslamoNazi FPI! 

‘Organisations affiliated to the NU reject the intended arrival of Habib Rizieq,’ says the report ,

Rizieq is a ranting jihadist, the so-called ‘high priest’ of one of the most unpleasant gangs in Indonesia.

And if we look back a bit, the senior levels of the NU have also been a source of good sense.

  • For example, Said Aqil Siroj, who was surely echoing the thoughts and prayers of every decent human being, of all creeds when he toldthe media…

  •  …that the IslamoNazi thug gang should be –

  • These photos of vicious, violent FPI louts, many of them too yellow-bellied to maraud without masks, illustrate the cancer he’s talking about.
  • ooooooooooooooooo-

  • And more than adequately answer his rhetorical question… 
  • “So, what need of organizations like that?!?!


So good for Said.

But what about this NU luminary?


Slamet Effendi Yusuf

NU said governors’ prohibition of Ahmadiyah had their support. This was delivered by the Vice Chairman of the NU, Slamet Effendi Yusuf, on Monday (28/3). According to Slamet, it is a local government duty to maintain order….NU boards in certain areas, for example in West Java, East Java, and Sumatra, strongly expressed support for the governors’ rule…

And then there’s the infamous case right here in Jakarta, where the NU raised hell about the inclusion of a Christian church in Gandaria City Mall.

warga islam tolak gereja di gandaria

‘The Community and Citizens of the NU Reject a Church in Gandaria City!

Bigot banner at Gandaria


It was sheer ignoramus bigotry, because nobody protested when a mosque was included in Blok M Square mall.

And when I say ‘ignoramus,’ I mean it, because no church was ever scheduled for Gandaria -it was all much ado about nothing, sectarian nasties frothing about a non-existent ‘threat of Christianisation!’ ‘

That’s a big phobia here, among crack-pot clerics who fear their flocks will do a runner if exposed to other ways of worship! 

And what about this NU notable?

In the Yasmin, Bogor case, continued Hasyim, that cannot be the measure of Indonesia’s religious intolerance.  “I have been there many times, but it seems they do not want to get it settled…,” he said.

Hasyim, full name Hasyim Muzadi, is a VERY prominent NU spokesman, chairman when he spoke those words which expose his outlandish intolerance.

Because he KNOWS those Yasmin Protestants  – the ones who worship every second Sunday across from the Palace – fought for their rights all the way to the highest court in the land (most judges there, if not all, are Muslims who plainly understand civilised values like fair play and freedom of religion rather better than Hasyim) and they WON.




So Hasyim just hogwashed when he said they don’t want to get it settled.

It IS settled, for law-abiding citizens. Bogor’s Islamist bigots were and still are, alas…

X-Rated Xmas – Foul-Mouths Bully Christians, As ‘Moderate’Mayor Denies They Exist!’ 

 …in the wrong when they sealed that church.

What a shame Hasyim’s so content to leave that wrong unrighted.


And here’s Hasyim,  showing he’s a man untroubled about company he keeps, because that character dressed up in what you might think is fancy-dress, is none other than the afore-mentioned Habib Rizieq, darling  of IslamoNazis everywhere.


But don’t for a minute think it’s only persecuted Christians for whom Hasyim doesn’t give a monkey’s! Here’s his follow-up rant  on the most persecuted people in this country, the Ahmadis –

If the measure ( of religious intolerance) is the problem of Ahmadiyah, Hasyim said, that’s because Ahmadiyah deviates from the basic teachings of Islam, but always uses a “rubber stamp” to call themselves Muslim and is politically oriented towards the West.

So HE thinks they deviate?




Big deal. Anyone in a free country can deviate from the established religious in-crowd. Again, as Hasyim certainly knows, that is NOT the problem. The Ahmadis never bother other creeds, They worship peacefully and are exemplary citizens.

The PROBLEM is ignorant bigoted Islamist intolerance.


ahmadiyah2 Evil Sunni pig revels in the martyrdom of Ahmadis

“It is very important for people in the UK to see Islam in Indonesia,”says the current British Ambassador – does he know that nobody was ever charged with the murder of those Ahmadi victims?


Innocent Ahmadis have been murdered by moronic mobsters. Hasyim’s hogwash take on this is an affront to reason.

As was his other rant when he hyper-ventilated that reporting Islamist thuggery was a form of ‘white-collar crime!’ Read it here! …

So Her Majesty’s British Government should NOT be signing up to deals with the NU unless it purges itself of extremists like Hasyim, and Slamet Effendi Yusuf and the obnoxious clowns we saw at  Gandaria.

And His Excellency should reconsider accepting his honorary membership, unless he carries a VERY long spoon in the boot of his ambassadorial limo.


NB for English students  – ‘boot’ is British English for the American English ‘trunk.’
