As His Fanatics Shuffle Round Town, Al K Arrested On Treason Charges?
Alas, it didn’t rain all day, so the fanatic rabble in downtown Jakarta will not have been inconvenienced as one might have hoped as they engaged in their latest hate-shuffle (absurdly described by the extremist as a ‘Long March’ ) …Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! …from the Istiqlal Mosque towards President Jokowi’s State Palace.
I actually was wise to stay home – not only would traffic congestion have been even worse than usual but I greatly enjoyed the company of today’s visitor.
However, more interesting to readers is the news that Muhammad Al Khathath, leader of the rabid Islamist outfit who organised the hate-shuffle, was arrested on treason charges.
What the basis of the charges might be, as often here, we need to wait and see.
But it’s fair to say that Al K is exactly what I said a day or so ago.
A Piece of Work.
That’s me being polite, because I have rules about bad language for commenters and I must thus adhere to those rules and not say what I’d like to say.
For further details on the man, please take a look at his vile record of blood-thirsty intolerance via our Search, just to the right of this post.
Interestingly again, Al K’s close involvement with the self-styled ‘scholars’ of the state-sponsored MUI isn’t mentioned in the news we have so far looked at.
It’s true that he’s best known as Secretary General of the FUI and for wanting to have an innocent atheist put to death for speaking his mind on religion. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/
Of course it’s not just individuals that Al K wants eliminated – it’s entire nations, too, like Israel. according to the Hizbut Tahrir post shown above, demanding Israel be ‘erased from the map of the world,’ for Al K has spent some time with the Hizbut haters too.
But the MUI is powerful here, more so than Hizbut or the FUI, which is why media went to ask Ma’aruf Amin, a leading light in the ‘scholar’ clique, what he had to say.
Ma’aruf is a notorious figure, the man who said FGM was a ‘human right!’
But he told Liputan.com he didn’t know anything about the alleged treason.
It’s going to be interesting to see what happens to Al Khathath. Maybe he should have taken the advice he gave to a young female reporter who was molested by a primitive pig at one of his sectarian rallies.
