Well Done, Tito Karnavian – Collaborationist Cops Slapped Down!

It’s fair to say some of us have been concerned by the behaviour of Indonesia’s National Chief of police.

So Has Indonesia Come To This? Paradise Lost? 

But Tito Karnavian deserves a round of applause for telling two local top cops to back off from their seeming endorsement of a fatwa issued by the notorious fanatics of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).

“I have firmly warned the Bekasi Police chief and Kulonprogo Police chief.  I warned them because it’s not permitted to issue circulars based on an MUI fatwa…”

“…an MUI fatwa is not statutory law that should be upheld. [The police] should not issue circulars that could become a legal document,” he added.

This is most welcome!

All too often in recent years we have read of the self-styled ‘scholars’ of the MUI using the police to enforce their opinionated outbursts.

Cops – “Islamist ‘Scholars’ Can Veto Religious Liberty” 


Bekasi Police reportedly issued a circular on Dec. 15 while Kulonprogo Police released a circular on Dec. 17, in which both instructed owners and management of businesses not to force their employees to wear Christmas attributes.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2016/12/19/police-to-revoke-circulars-on-mui-ban-on-christmas-attributes.html

The MUI, as we keep reminding readers who may not be familiar with their record, are a benighted bunch, and again we offer examples to substantiate this description –.

It was MUI’s Deputy Chair, Ma’aruf, who kindly advised everyone that FGM is a ‘human right!’  


And here’s another of their ‘scholars’ talking.

“If the act of adultery is by a married person, then stoning is the sentence, while if unmarried, then it’s whipping,” he said.


Clearly accepting moral guidance from such people is ill-advised, let alone allowing such extremists to lay down the law.

 Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Don’t Complain if You’re Attacked!” 

Bekasi Police, alas, operate in a community infamous for its intolerance.

Again, previous posts here confirm that sad fact.

Bekasi Bigots V Religious Liberty, Again! 


And apart from anything else, the record of Bekasi Police themselves leaves a load of questions to answer about things they’ve done – or not done!

As for the situation in Kulonprogo, I simply don’t know and need to check it out. Jogjakarta used to have a good reputation for religious tolerance, but recently…?
