    Enjoy Your Ascension Day – But Never Forget Bekasi! 


    It’s Ascension Day and here in Indonesia it’s a public holiday – with lots of religions, we get lots of holidays!

    But it’s important not to forget that, while Christians, Buddhists and Hindus are recognised religions here, and the decent Muslims among the majority creed respect their rights, there is also a viciously intolerant element, which showed its snarling ugly face a few years ago…

    …and Islamist intolerance is not merely a past phenomenon, as the Hindus of Bekasi  found out this month once again.

    Read all about that episode here… https://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2019/05/07/plan-to-construct-hindu-temple-in-bekasi-met-with-protest.html

    So no matter your religion, or even if you have none, pray that President Jokowi, now re-elected, to the fury of fanatics…

    ….will slap down the forces of darkness that prowl not only in Bekasi but throughout the archipelago.

      I am Muslim who think same like you do. It is wrong to stop people worship.
      The violent gang in Tambun Bekasi was wrong then against the Christians same like the gang against the Hindus this time.
      I am happy when you say that many good Muslim Indonesian people respect other religions and are not same like violent gangs.

      It is important not to forget what happened in Tambun. Very few of the bad people were punished for their violence.

    Happy Ascension Day! But Don’t Forget Tambun Terror! 


    It’s Ascension Day, a public holiday here in Indonesia, and I’m waiting for a welcome visitor.

    The sun is shining outdoors, and I hope my Indonesian readers of all creeds enjoy their day off work.

    BUT…

    DON’T FORGET the Christians of Tambun, Bekasi, West Java, who are still unable to worship in peace at their own church, whence they were driven six years ago by filthy savages who pelted them with bags of urine and faeces…

    Pastor Palti

    ————————————————————————–
    “They assaulted the congregation members,” Rev. Palti Panjaitan told the Jakarta Globe on Thursday. “Police tried to talk to them, but the mob passed through police and showered us with urine and dirty water. Others threw stones at us.”
    The mob reportedly attacked the congregation as the service started, and also shouted profanity and threats.

    “Even after the service, which lasted one-and-a-half hours, the mob chased after us,” Rev. Palti said.

    …and who STILL, all these years later, worship in the street, across the road from President Jokowi’s Palace here in Jakarta.

    So they will be in town today, or maybe Sunday, and while we we relax or gallivant, let’s not forget them.

      I remember this because how can we forget.
      You are right to say they are savages, good way to call them.
      I wish you a happy holiday to Ross and I have another story for you that I will send soon.

      A happy Ascension Day to you Ross.
      Congratulations on the reminder for the Batak church in Tambun too.
      The crime done that day by mean people who hate Christians must never be forgotten and I hope they always fight to get back into their church, same like GKI Yasmin and the other churches persecuted.

      I wish President Jokowi will do something like use police to make Bogor obey Supreme Court that ordered the Yasmin church open.
      Possibly wishing and hoping are not enough so let us continue praying for religious liberty in Indonesia..

      It is a holy day and a holiday so we should all be happy even people who are not very holy.

      It is important in this time to think about what the Islamist did in Bekasi because they get more powerful all the time under this government.
      Nice to disolve Hizbut Tahrir but better to ban all the violent gangs too like the FPI.

      Never forget.
      When we see something so terrible we cannot forget how shamed it makes us to be part of the same country as the criminals not stopped by the police.
      It is same like we feel when we see the murders in Cikeusik that also the police did not stop.
      People in every church today should pray for the HKBP to worship again in Tambun but I am sorry that I cannot forgive the Islamist terror mob except if they repent and say sorry and help build back the church for the Christian people.

      Not likely any of us in Jakarta at the time would forget, though some high-ups here would like us to.
      I see no sign the authorities now would behave any different if the same kind of thing happened again.

      I see you welcome the action against Hizbut Tahrir and so will most. Until the government does something similar to the whit-shirt gang whose photo you have in the previous post, I am still keeping a bag packed.
