Indonesia’s New Moral Movement? Who Yelled ‘Kill, Kill, Kill?’

As a moral movement, everything we do is based on moral values and justice… to uphold honesty and public welfare,” Din said during the announcement of KAMI’s formation on Tuesday as quoted by

A total of 150 national figures are part of the coalition so far…

So since I care very much about the country I have lived in for more than two decades…



…I took a look at who’s involved in KAMI – Koalisi Aksi Menyelamatkan Indonesia (KAMI) (Coalition for Action to Save Indonesia)

  • and you can too, using the JP link..

….but one name leapt out from the page.

…including Islam Defenders Front (FPI) chairman Sobri Lubis…

Remember him?


…or more precisely, his infamous rant?

 Just watch the video-

– which shows him issuing his monstrous call for his devout audience to ‘Bunuh, Bunuh, Bunuh (KILL KILL KILL!) Ahmadis, a peaceful, utterly inoffensive religious minority, whom our UK readers may have noticed..



….incitement for which Sobri Lubis was never prosecuted, BTW! Nor, as far as I know, has he even apologised!

As for his ‘Islam Defenders Front,’ the FPI…just look!


Note – this picture on the left was taken long before masks were decreed as a virus precaution!

Din Syamsuddin, quoted at the top of the page, is the former head of Muhammadiyah, a ‘moderate’ Islamic mass movement here.


Din, of Muhammadiyah


He is well-informed, and certainly knows all about the FPI, whose Sobri Lubis he appears happy to welcome as a supporter of his moral movement…based on moral values and justice…

Why, you may ask, are such things happening, and part of the answer must lie in the eighth ‘demand’ which the Jakarta Post helpfully lists.

…The coalition also conveyed eight of its demands to the government:

1. State administrators must enforce the state administration and management to be in accordance with the spirit and values of the 1945 Constitution and state ideology Pancasila.

2. The government must seriously tackle the COVID-19 pandemic by allocating adequate budgets and directly help the poor who are economically affected.

3. The government must overcome the economic recession for the interest of small businesses and domestic and informal workers, rather than large and foreign entrepreneurs.

4. The government must stop chaotic and discriminatory law enforcement, eradicate “law mafias”, stop the criminalization of political opponents, arrest and severely punish looters of state assets.

5. State administrators must stop practices of corruption, collusion and nepotism (KKN) as well as the system and practices of oligarchy, kleptocracy, political dynasty and power abuse.

So far so good!?

Many Indonesians probably agree with much of the above, but…

…a moral movement, everything we do is based on moral values and justice…

Here’s Number Six!

6. State administrators must not give opportunities for the rise of communism and other anti-Pancasila ideologies, including separatism; must stop the stigmatization of religious groups with issues of intolerance, radicalism and extremism that divide the society.

The government should not bow to certain countries to enforce economic and foreign policies


…stigmatization of religious groups with issues of intolerance, radicalism and extremism…

Well, God forbid anyone would ‘stigmatize’ Sobri Lubis or his “Islam Defenders Front” with issues of extremism!
