    Happy Ascension Day! 


    It’s a public holiday here in Indonesia, but as group worship is not happenng for any creed, not a lot of services in churches for Ascension Day.

    Not that many people are going to work any other day either.

    So just a hope that Christian celebrating this day find solace in their worship.

    A lot more so this year than another year…

    Ascension Day In Jakarta, As Satanic Evil Strikes Kampung Melayu! 


    Awoke to news of sectarian savagery AGAIN today, not far away in an English city this time, but right here in my adopted home-town of Jakarta.

     Islamic State link hits Jakarta

    “This could be part of a global effort to spread fear and terror,” said an Indonesian Police spokesman.

    All my overseas readers can find details in their local media.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/jakarta-suicide-bomb-kills-policeman-wounds-at-least-five/news-story

    It wasn’t that long ago that I traveled through Kampung Melayu, the big bus junction hit by the scum some hours ago, so these atrocities can induce personal intimations of mortality.

    I present you with a popular pictorial slogan here…

    =

    …..

    …but while I endorse the exhortation for anyone celebrating Ascension to pray for the dead and wounded today, it is arguably not accurate, because the beasts who claimed more innocent lives yesterday…

      I am muslima woman and I want to agree the terror in Jakarta was not my religion, It was what you say by Devils who kill muslim people.
      I beleive Devils now in Hell.
      Many people call them that and are so angry when they lie and say they are muslim. It was same in Sarinah and in Cikeusik that you write also about. All muslim I know want the Devils to get death punishment.
      If we want to be free country we need to hunt them all over our country Indonesia and yes it is true also that the Densus88 do good work.
      Thanks to you.

      We all know Muslims here in Indonesia who would never have anything to do with Islamists, and its not just our friends and oolleagues, its all the million plus plus who voted for Ahok, Not enough minority religions to have turned out so many votes against the Islamists.
      Now all those people see Ahok in prison and asking themselves if theyre next for saying anything that upsets the jihadists.
      I see the National Police Chief Tito still hasnt apologised for calling the FPI tolerant. That is worrying..If the top cop wont or cant see the truth when its there in front of his nose, who is going to enforce the law.
      Pessimist outlook, rainy season coming?

    Jokowi On Blasphemy Charge? Java Rhythm ‘Enflames’ Fanatics! 


    jokowi-twitter

    President Jokowi has quite lot to contend with these days, both home and abroad, and even gets criticism from our blog from time to time.

    But a new clamour has arisen, from that ever-ready source of intolerance, the IslamoNazi FPI, the self-styled ‘Islam Defenders Front.’

    They want him PROSECUTED for blasphemy!

    anfpi2

    They’ve got their white-shirt knickers in a twist because last week’s State Palace celebration of the Islamic Ascension included Koranic readings in which the verses were recited with rhythms associated with Indonesia, rather than with Arabia.

    Given that the State Palace is located in Jakarta, capital city of Indonesia, a naive observer might see nothing amiss with this.

    Indeed, many observers, not at all naive, might raise a cheer, because it tends to be that minority of Muslims who pay much too much attention to backward Arab thnking who cause offence and disturbance.

    The more Indonesianised any Islamic activities become, surely the better for all concerned.

    —-

    gus dur fasting

    ‘We Muslims should fast with respect for those not fasting.’

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    The late President Gud Dur was a fine example of how to apply Islamic standards in a Javanese (i.e.tolerant and civilised) manner. 

    Among those whose response suggests approval are that refreshing fellow, Lukman, about whom it would be uncharitable to say that he’s the best Minister of Religious Affairs since Suryadharma Ali.

    Truth to tell, my cat would have been an improvement  on Ali.

    ooo

    In fact, Lukman is an admirable man, who seems to be a person of genuine good character and goodwill to all men.

    Anyway, Lukman defended the use of Javanese rhythms at the palace, despite many who say such a manner of recitation is forbidden.

    “The purpose of reading the Koran with Java style is to keep and maintain the tradition of the archipelago in spreading the teachings of Islam in this country,” said Lukman on his personal Twitter account.

    Today, how many Indonesians can afford to study Arabic in school, even supposing they can afford to go to school at all?

    Of couse, there are pesantren, the so-called ‘Islamic boarding schools,’ but while I’m prepared to concede that some of those are run by good people, a lot are NOT! Many are at best described as obscurantist!

    Lukman Slams Pesantren Fanatics – Can One Brave Man Slay The Hydra? 

    Others are much worse than that!

    ——————–

    But Indonesia has a way to go before that kind of progress is conceivable. Having prayers in Bahasa Indonesia? Or Bahasa Jawa or Bahasa Sunda? Read about the police investigation into Muhammad Yusman Roy for conducting Islamic ritual prayers (shalat) in two languages, Arabic and Indonesian.   http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2005/08/12/mui-fatwa-negates-freedom-religion-human-rights.html

    000000000000000000000

    Let’s just be glad for now that the Javanese rhythm is getting support.

    But not from some geezer called Saiful Islam Mubarak, who runs – yes, you guessed! – the Pesantren Tinggi Maqdis.

    oooooo

    ooo

    He reckons this step challenges the character of the Koran. 

    Lukman’s response is mild.

    “That’s understandable because this is something new and gives rise to diverse views…This is purely my own proposal… something positive with positive goals…,” said Lukman.

    BUT there’s no show without Punch!

    Lukman’s opinion enflamed the FPI!

    —————————————

    • Their frantic fanatic fuhrer, Habib Rizieq, modestly demanded that “the President and the Minister repent and ask forgiveness before God, and apologize to all Muslims.

    ALL Muslims?

    Since when did this outlandish gang-leader speak for ALL Muslims?

    Jokowi’s a Muslim, Lukman’s a Muslim, and Lukman consulted various ulama (‘scholars’) prior to the recital.  

    But Rizieq’s having none of that archaic (and Javanese-style!) rubbish about respecting other’s views.

    “If not, they must be processed with the blasphemy law and ousted from office because of insulting the Koran. Legally, insulting the Koran is apostasy. An apostate cannot lead Muslims!”
