    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.

     Al Kaththath


    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.

    Islamist ‘Scholar’ in Racist Rant -“Ahok Anggap Jakarta Ini Sebuah Kota di Cina…” 

    We’re Not Racist, Just Bigots – So…About That ‘Chinese City?’ 

    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/


    Hizbut Tahrir


    • 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.

      Good to read something about Indonesia but a question for you about this dangerous man.
      I read in one of the Indonesian media today that Khathath isnt even his real name.
      Its Gatot.
      Any idea why or is it just that he likes to sound like an Arab and not an Indonesian? If he’s guilty of being Hizbut Tahrir then that wouldnt surprise me. Theyre the most UN Indonesian of all the fanatics here.

    The MUI – Belligerence Is Bad News! 

    The MUI (Indonesian Ulema Council) has a Religious Harmony Council.


    • ———————————
    • I know this because its top man, Yusuf Yusnar, is in the news deploring the cover of the special anniversary issue of  Charlie Hebdo. It has on its cover, so I’m told, God, as an old man carrying weapons and covered in blood.

    I dare say this is offensive to many people of all religions.

    Equally offensive to many people of all religions, and of none, is the photo of the Hizbut Tahrir bigot gang’s protest posters, which whine about ‘insults to the prophet being the shape of democratic freedoms.’

    You can see those via the link, but here’s another one from a while ago…



    “Charlie Hebdo, Proof of the Rotten-ness of Democracy”


    …But it’s Yusnar’s take on religion in Indonesia that captivates me. The Hebdo   charges were reckoned to generalize Islam as belligerent and not liking peace. 

    Yusnar argues that it’s not like that in Indonesia.

    Harmony, he said, can be established, even with people of different beliefs….

    “Yes, of course Charlie Hebdo cannot not generalize that all religious life leads to violence,” he said.


    Well, they can, rightly or wrongly. That’s press freedom, whether the MUI likes it or not.

    Not, would be the answer, because they have a foul record on censorship – Nazi-style book-burning, actually, committed in consort with the twerps who run Gramedia, one of the largest publishing companies here, which owns many media, including the pretend-pluralist Jakarta Post.

    burning books

    Gramedia’s Hitlerian book-burning

    ————————————–Read all about that here -–Grovelling Gramedia’s BookBurning Bonanza – Appeasing Fanatics 


    For sure, all religious life does not lead to violence. But forgive me if I look askance at the Republika page. 

    Or rather at the MUI.

    Have they expelled hateful fanatics like Al Khatthath who wanted an innocent atheist executed? https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/


    • fatwa mui sholeh
    • 000000000000000000000

    Have they given up setting the cops on religious dissenters?


    • 393a3-yorkregioonalpoliceprotest
    • =======================

    Or denouncing the inoffensive Ahmadiyah as ‘heretics?




    Have they condemned, or at least disowned, ignorant savages who think ‘apostates’ and ‘blasphemers’ should be put to death?

    Most Muslims here in Indonesia, most Indonesians of all creeds, are decent folk, who find such conduct as unpleasant as I do. They don’t exhibit belligerence, except maybe when crowding aboard public transport! 

    But the belligerence which emanates from leading figures in the MUI?

    Islamist ‘Scholars’ – “Atheists Get Out of Indonesia!” 

    Jakarta Islamist ‘Scholars’ – Adultery, Co-Habiting? Stoning and Whipping! 

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

    Enough to enliven a hundred Charlie Hebdo covers!

    Incest? Schizo? Prophet? IslamoNazi Wannabe Censor Calls Cops! 

    Another glorious episode in the history of Indonesia’s Islamist movement to report, with Tempo.co telling how the notorious IslamoNazi FPI ( Islam Defenders Front) are reporting a writer to the police, since his book has tarnished the religion.

    • FPI_13 FPI thugs defending Islam


    That of course refers to Islam, and one might have thought the FPI’s own disgusting record of violence, vandalism and intimidation has done more to ‘tarnish’ that religion than anything else in Indonesia.

    But self-criticism, nor even self-awareness, are not notably discernible where the white-shirts are concerned.

    Let’s see what their spokesman in Semarang, Central Java, acertain Zainal Abidin Petir, is on about.

    “Defamation of religion cannot be tolerated. It can be dangerous if there are distortions of Islam,” said Zainal, Friday, October 2, 2015.




    Dangerous? To whom? Which people might be endangered by printed pages?

    He doesn’t spell that out, though again, the shameless hoodlum antics of the FPI – FPI in West Java – ‘Let’s Burn Out the Orphans!’  – actually do present clear, present and promised dangers to all sorts of people, witness the innocent woman left dead on the road in Sukorejo, also in Central Java, last year. IslamoNazis V Freedom-Fighters? – Some Chicken, Some Neck

    And some foreign folk might regard a publicly declared intention to murder them as ever so slightly dangerous.


    fpi kill busddhist


    But of course the FPI are not alone in their horror-struck intolerance of books that upset Islamist ideologues.

    Gramedia, one of the biggest publishers in the archipelago, became infamous for its censorious sectarianism,  after they staged a Nazi-style book-burning two years ago.

    Grovelling Gramedia’s BookBurning Bonanza – Appeasing Fanatics 

    • burning books

    • Gramedia’s Hitlerite book-burning

    • ====================

    Their English-language puppet paper, the Jakarta Post, which likes to present itself as pro-pluralism, has never yet condemned that disgraceful Hitlerian bonfire.

    So no wonder white-shirt bully-boys reckon they are empowered to decide what Indonesians may or may not read and/or write.


    • Ahmad Fauzi
    • ==================
    • The guilty(?!) author is Ahmad Fauzi, a graduate of Philosophy,  Walisongo State Islamic University, Semarang, and his writings include such intriguing titles as ‘The Incest Tragedy of Adam and Eve, and Criminal Prophet,’ plus what should surely be a block-buster, ‘Schizophrenic Religion: Madness, Revelation and Prophethood.’
    • 000000000000000000000000000000
    • At this pont in my preparation of this post, I thought to find illustrations to make it more fun for you readers.
    • Lo and behold, I found that while the FPI is doing its usual intolerant thing, the other, less well-known but arguably even more virulent, thug group, the FUI, are no slouches when it comes to churning out hate against dissenters from orthodoxy.
    • =============

    But the Semarang cadre is hardly out of step with FUI leadership, whose best-known name is Al Khatthath, a rabid fanatic who holds office in the state-sponsored MUI…

    Why Apologise? Religion Minister’s ‘Sorry’ To IslamoNazi Thug Gangs 

    Al is not only a senior figure in the state-funded MUI, but also a former HizBut Tahrir notable.

    • fatwa mui sholeh
    • —————-
    • The MUI’s failure to fire the brute is another good reason why the Indonesian Council of’ ‘Scholars’ can hardly be taken seriously as a source of moral guidance. 
    • Anyway, back to Zainal, it turns out that author Ahmad actually agreed to a meeting with the FPI a while back, a dialogue mediated by the police in Semarang.


    You’d think the police would have better things to do than arrange chats between jihadist brutes and their prospective victims, but alas, Indonesia has its own ridiculous ‘Blasphemy’ law, by which blameless citizens have been prosecuted and jailed, like the Shia cleric, Yajul.

    Zainal acknowledges that Ahmad’s writings tend to be poetic and arty. but despite the meeting, he’s still going to report Ahmad for police prosecution.

    Ahmad says he tried to explain explain his thinking to the FPI. But they didn’t want an explanation, just an interrogation.

    For his part, he argues that there is evidence in the Quran Surah As-Shura paragraph 182 also mentioned a prophet possessed…

    But I won’t get into theology or psychology. To me, it’s simply stupid to harass somebody for religious beliefs or lack of them.

    God gives you a brain, so use it to think about what He is and how He works..or IF He is.

    Nothing wrong with the death penalty, but use it on jihadists, not harmless writers.

      It is same like you say, IslamoNazis tarnishing, to the religion and to our country Indonesia.
      Why can this writer not write books and I can have choice to read or not? Nobody wants to make FPI read if they do not like to. Can many FPI read or write, I don’t think so, very stupid in those photos.
      And the death for writing? The FUI are like big setan, devil, make me so angry because I like to live in my free country
      Why police always happy to work with evil people. Police should be against FPI and FUI, who are just thugs.

    Why Apologise? Religion Minister’s ‘Sorry’ To IslamoNazi Thug Gangs 

    If a mob of bigot louts take exception to something you’ve done – especially if you see nothing wrong with it yourself – would you sit down with the nasty brutes and say how sorry you were that you hurt their feelings?




    Well, that’s what Lukman, Indonesia’s Minister of Religious Affairs, has just done with a couple of the most vicious hoodlum gangs in the archipelago, the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) and the Indonesian Mujahidin Council.


    • main-lukman-hakim4 Lukman


    All the sadder, since we only just praised him last week for his action, which was a breath of brave fresh air. Jokowi On Blasphemy Charge? Java Rhythm ‘Enflames’ Fanatics! 

    “Of course I’m sorry…I apologize for the incident,” said Lukman,

    Incredibly, this wretched climb-down took place in his own office!




    Why would a government minister allow fanatic gang-leaders into his ministerial headquarters? Any normally house-proud citizen wouldn’t let them past the garden-gate!

    If such anti-social undesirables somehow gained entry to any property of mine, I’d be tempted to have the premises fumigated. 

     But not Lukman.

    Despite the record of both the FPI….IslamoNazis V Freedom-Fighters? – Some Chicken, Some Neck! and the Majelis Mujahedin…..https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/02/16/islamonazi-thugs-attack-indonesian-artist-in-jogja/   – both infamous for cowardice and brutality – he not only let them in and sat them down – but went on to crave their forgiveness!

    Lukman insisted he never intended to disparage Islam with the Javanese style in the recitation of the Qur’an; it was an attempt to give new color in the propagation of Islam nuanced to the archipelago, with no intention of damaging Islam.

    Did they apologise in return for accusing both Lukman and President Jokowi of blasphemy and/or apostasy, over that trifling variation in the rhythms at the Jakarta Istiqlal Mosque??

    Who gives a damn?

    Apologies from the likes of these hate-gangs would be no more sincere than any other of their protestations.


    However the two hate-gangs above responded to Lukman’s sorry statements, there was one familiar voice spitting sectarian venom…yes, it was the inimitable AL K.


    Al KhatatAl Khathath

    Lively Hustings Likely in West/North Jakarta! 

    Al is a senior figure in the state-funded MUI, a former HizBut Tahrir notable and also no less than the Secretary General of the FUI. He’s the charmer we just can’t keep out of our reports.  

    Meanwhile, Secretary General of the Muslim Forum, Muhammad al Khaththath said he disagreed with Lukman Hakim, as Javanese styling of the Koran went beyond the limit of tolerance.


    This is the creature who wanted to have an atheist killed for speaking his mind on religion. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/06/15/another-nail-in-freedoms-coffin-indonesian-atheist-jailed-for-blasphemy/

    Did you let him into your office too, Lukman? 

    I sometimes begin to understand those foreigners who despair of the future here.


    But I refuse to give up hope. Most Indonesians are nice.

    Sooner or later, Insh’Allah, their voices will be heard.

    IslamoNazi Thugs Threaten Hotel Over Valentine Ad! 

    Well, it’s that time of year. 

    • Sejumlah massa dari Front Pembela Islam (FPI) melakukan aksi di depan Gedung Mahkaman Konstitusi (MK), Jakarta, Rabu (27/1). IslamoNazi FPI in action
    • ——————————————-

    This gangster group is evidently echoing more sedate condemnation in the news a few days ago, viz. –

    The Deputy Secretary-General of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), Tengku Zulkarnain reckons that that there is a systematic attempt to destroy the morals of Indonesia.


    tengku zulkarnain-mui- Tengku


    Much like Hillary’s ‘vast rightwing conspiracy’ in the USA, this threat appears to be hydra-headed, but the only concrete example Tengku appears to be offering is that of ads plastered about in public and read by the whole community…“all working together to destroy the morals of the nation’s children,” said Tengku.

    I only caught up recently with the protests by these self-styled ‘scholar’s about obscene billboards advertising cigarettes..

    “Mula2 Malu2, Lama2 Mau!” More Uptight Antedeluvian Censorship! 

    But there’s another billboard causing uproar among the uptights



    It seems there’s a problem about this Valentine promotion – the Batu Wonderland Hotel provides a 50% discount for guests staying with a girlfriend on weekends during the month of February – but please note, that’s just one translation.

    The hotel’s located in Malang, East Java. It sounds like a good deal – an overnight train-ride from Jakarta, if anyone fancies the trip! I’ve only gotten to know one person from there, a real charmer – cheers, R, if you’re reading! 

    But this takes us back to Tengku – he’s quoted complaining that community members are not aware that the ad looks like it was intended to legitimise adultery or free sex.   http://www.hariandepok.com/23503/mui-ada-upaya-perusakan-moral-bangsa

    Was he rabbiting about the cigarette ads, now of course withdrawn – or about the hotel ads?  

    I had a look, as can you, at the ad pictured above, and it refers not to pacar, girl-friend, but to kekasih, which usually means ‘darling,’ or ‘beloved.’

    Of course many of us can – and probably do – say ‘darling’ to anyone!

    But equally – probably – a lot of guys say it to their wives. The interpretation depends on the mentality of those who read the ad.

    A matter of finding what you choose to look for? 

    Which is more than we can say about the clear, unambiguous assertions on other matters by some of Tengku’s MUI colleagues.

    Not least, the unspeakable Ma’aruf Amin, who, as….


    • ma'arruf amin  Ma’aruf

    …MUI Deputy Chair, made that infamous comment that FGM is a ‘human right!’    https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/clitoral-clip-no-scraping-suffices-tell-us-islamist-scholars-why-do-it/

    And then there’s the infamously blood-thirsty Al K.




    Sometime Hizbut Tahrir hate-group luminary, leader of the FUI (their posters include ‘Wipe Israel Off The World Map’) and the source of that horrid demand that Alex A’an, an obscure harmless atheist in Sumatra, be PUT TO DEATH for his observations on religion. Muhammed Al Khatthath has been allowed to hold high-level positions of responsibility in the MUI, despite his sectarian notoriety. .

    Tengku really needs to get his act together, and apologise for his disgraceful comrades  – that would be doing something positive to preserve the morals of the nation’s children, by disowning rabid fanaticism.




    But he won’t.  

    At the start of February, EVERY year, MUI ‘scholars’ are too busy gearing up to tell kids how morally corrosive sending Valentine cards can be.

    Pathetic, really.

    We're Not Racist, Just Bigots – So…About That 'Chinese City?' 

    A rare source today, CNN Indonesia, which reported that the IslamoNazi FPI (self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front ‘) is now claiming their hatred for Jakarta’s Acting Governor Ahok is not motivated by racism but by pure unsullied sectarian bigotry.


    • anfpi2
    • ================
    • This sounds a trifle unlikely.
    • It’s true that Islamist hate-freaks, similarly to normal Muslims  (please believe me, they are NOT synonymous – I welcome Muslim guests into my home at least once a week and when I go out to parties, I socialisee freely and happily with Muslims)  come in all the colours of the rainbow. And the same goes for Christians.
    • There are plenty of Chinese Muslims here in Jakarta too – Ahok, of course, is a Christian.
    • —————————————————————————————————————————-

    Nevertheless, let’s look at the background to this uproar, which has seen weekly demos, some of them violent (the IslamoNazis ran amok and injured over 20 cops last month outside City Hall) The demos are usually described as FPI but they work in tandem with another hate-group, the FUI, the Indonesian Muslim Front. 


    • ————-
    • FPI Deputy Secretary General, Awit Maschuri, insists that his white-shirt thug gang is not a racist organization…“If we were racist, we would be concerned about his Chinese ethnicity.” 

    FPI: Kami Tak Rasis, yang Penting Islam!

    “Just like the Balinese, who are not willing to be led by someone other than Hindus. It’s also important for us citizens of Jakarta to be led by a Muslim. Because in Jakarta most people are Muslims,” Awit said.

    What an unpleasant fanatic he is! If we had a contest between an honest Musllim and a crooked Christian (there are plenty of both in Jakarta!) sane people of all creeds would vote for the former. But Alwi? He would prefer some deadbeat, dictatorial or corrupt person to honest Ahok, just because one goes to a mosque and the other to a church?

    It’s inane.


    But let’s keep moving on.

    You’ll recall that when Ahok was the Deputy Governor candidate, Jokowi’s running-mate, ignoramuses tried to shout him down?Ahok, however, received boos and taunts — including “Jew” and “Chinese” from his rival’s supporters. Ahok was forced to pause frequently and speak louder.

    Jakarta Jew-Haters Boo Chinese Christian Candidate 

    Now we cannot prove that those morons who were haranguing Ahok were FPI members, but it does show that racism is a factor in the oppositon to him.

    But we don’t need to prove that the FUI is working hand in glove with the FPI in this controversy. It’s acknowledged by both groups.

    And we know what their leader had to say – we published a post at the time.


    Islamist ‘Scholar’ in Racist Rant -“Ahok Anggap Jakarta Ini Sebuah Kota di Cina…” 


    Extract –


    ahok Ahok


    • I was prowling through the search engines, to see what the Nasties were up to, and I must admit, even I was shocked to find such a blatant racist outburst, even though from the blood-thirsty bigot Al Khathath, Secretary General of the FUI, Forum Umat Islam.
    • He’s one of the most fanatical Islamists in the archipelago, a man with a Hizbut Tahrir background who, despite that record, currently  holds a senior position in the state-subsidised MUI, the Indonesian Council of Scholars. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/incandescent-islamist-holds-forth-in-scholars-hq/

    end of extract


     A city in China?
    Al K could not have made it plainer. He could have picked any place in the world to illustrate Ahok’s ‘arrogance.’ Paris? Tunbridge Wells?
    Westchester County in New York can be quite bad!
    Birmingham’s a tad sniffy (joke!)
    But the FUI Fuhrer chose ‘a city in China,‘ surely as racist a jibe as he could conjure up.
    There is LOTS of racist prejudice among pribumi here against the Chinese – and vice-versa, to be fair.
    Don’t think for a minute the Forces of Darkness would hesitate to exploit it.
    Having said that, they are no doubt only saying what they really think.

    Bravo, Tulungagung – Righteous Regent Challenges Jihadist Jerks! 

    A belated three cheers for the Regent of Tulungagung.


    Because I only got the news from a reader now, though the Regent’s admirable words were uttered a week or so back.

    And your next question is probably – where’s Tulungagung?



    Well, it’s way down in East Java, and it’s Regent is Syahri Mulyo. That’s him in the picture below.


    Syahri Mulyo, SE


    And now you want to know what he said that has earned my applause?

    Okay. He spoke up against plans by the FPI white-shirt gang to launch a branch of their vigilante sectarian outfit in his regency.

    He said that their habit in various areas was to promote anarchistic behaviour and to usurp the authority of police and other security forces.

    Hard for anyone to dispute that. Their brutal intolerance, violence and vandalism is notorious across Indonesia. We saw it in Jakarta only this month.

    Twenty Officers Injured – So Jakarta Cops ‘Negotiate’ With islamist Thug Gang? 

    “I do not speak of other regions, but only about Tulungagung region. For the sake of the common good, I once again urge it not to be done!” said Syahri.  http://regional.kompas.com/read/2014/10/06/19352821/Bupati.Tulungagung.Saya.Imbau.Jangan.Ada.Deklarasi.FPI.di.Sini

    But who was quick to be quoted on the side of the IslamoNazis?



    Why, none other than the local Chairman of the MUI, the Indonesian ‘Scholars’ Council. The MUI is subsidised by the Government and issues all kinds of bizarre fatwas, some just laughable, like that against yoga, others disgraceful, rants against peaceful dissenters, like  Ahmadiyah ‘ heresy,’ as if we’re stuck in the Dark Ages

    MUI’s Mohammad  Mahfouz Gus claimed there’s no legal basis, to reject the establishement of an FPI chapter. He invoked Home Affairs Minister Gamawan Fauzi’s disgraceful comment that ‘Indonesia still needs FPI.’

    Gamawan’s record on these IslamoNazis is as bad as his record as a local politician prior to being given the ministerial post by President SBY. In his own area, he imposed vicious shariah bye-laws that blatantly discriminated against women.



    On the FPI, you can see more of his collaborationist outbursts here.

    Shariah Minister – “Let’s ‘Coach’ IslamoNazis!” Why Not Hell’s Angels Too? 

    To be fair to MUI’s Gus, he seems to be arguing that since the IslamoNazis have not been banned nationally, any local attempt to thwart their plan could backfire legally.

    I post on this fairly (very!) unknown region of Indonesia for two reasons. .


    First, because it’s important people overseas DO understand that there are many good people here who have no time for these vicious jihadist hoodlums. Indonesians are 90% Muslim, but they are also, mostly, decent folk, not at all fanatical.

    And also, to remind you of the MUI’s record.

    Routine denunciations of violence are all very well, but all too often, their extreme fanatical diatribes can be used by jihadist jerks to justify thuggery.

    And of course the FUI (Forum Ummat Indonesia) leader working hand-in-glove with the FPI in the anti-kafir demos in Jakarta, Al Khaththath, is a rather senior MUI office-bearer himself!.

    And never forget the shameful menace uttered by MUI supremo Amidhan.

    Let’s wait and see if the gangsters get started in Tulungagung.
