Jakarta Police ‘Ask’ Fanatic Not To Bring Mob?


I see the Indonesian Police have summoned Rizieq the Fanatic to appear on Monday.

A Million-Strong Fanatic Mob In Jakarta Today?


After he failed to appear last week, because he wasn’t feeling up to it – but could not provide his lawyer with a medical note to back up his excuse…

Fanatics Fail To Show Up. So What Next? 

….this is interesting, and not only to honest citizens worried about disorder and traffic madness, congestion which anti-social extremists have often inflicted on the blameless decent folk here.

Beware! Very Short Fanatic ‘Long March,’ Jakarta, This Friday! 

Strangely, the police are reportedly ‘requesting’ him to come along with his lawyer but without a mob.

A ‘request?’

Might be better to call it a warning, rather than a request, and to have water-cannon on standby to hose down any obstreperous rabble who tag along.



They could use some of the disinfectant trucks who regularly spray our komplek’s streets!

Alternatively, they could just go to that alley in Jakarta’s Pertamburan area, where the Fanatic has his lair and drag him out.

Last week we saw a pack of oafs in paramilitary outfits saying who could and could not enter the alley!


That arrogant goon-squad could do with being put in their place!
