    “Mohon Ma’af?” Blasphemous Brutes Vandalise Depok Mosque! 


    Mohon ma’af, ‘ is a common addition to Idul Fitri greetings here, people asking forgiveness for any wrongs they’ve done in the past year.

    I wonder if certain blasphemous bigots in Depok will walk over to the Ahmadi Mosque they vandalised this weekend….

    The vandals, who used motorcycles, threw eggs and paint at the mosque’s yard and front and back gates. “They also threw eggs at the mosque’s CCTV cameras so their actions would not be recorded,” Fatiatulo Lazira, a lawyer with the team, said. They also placed a banner expressing animosity toward Ahmadiyah near the mosque.

    ….and seek forgiveness.

    I doubt it. Islamist bigots have no conscience recognisable to normal human beings.

    I recall that evil mass-murderer, Imam Samoedra, one of the Bali Bomb Pigs..

      

    Imam Samoedra, with his two satanic co-killers

    iiiiiiiiii

    …being asked by a naive journo prior to his well-deserved execution, if he would be asking forgiveness.

    ‘Why would I ask forgiveness from kafir,’ was the monster’s retort.

    So no repentance likely among the backward beasts in Depok either, where the vandalised Ahmadi mosque had already been shut down by the sectarian local government’s goon-squad.

    ===

    The mosque has been sealed off by the Depok administration seven times, with the most recent occurring on June 4.

    Nor is there any news from President Jokowi, who likes to talk about Indonesia’s pluralism, about any plan to repeal the notorious Tri-Ministerial Decree.

    The Ahmadis have long been persecuted in the country, with the government issuing a joint ministerial decree banning their activities in 2008.http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/24/ahmadiyah-mosque-in-depok-vandalized-ahead-of-idul-fitri.html

    At least the JP report has a few words on the source of  much of Indonesia’s intolerance, reminding us that it was the MUI’s dogmatic decree…

    ====

       –

    The  2005 Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) fatwa declaring the teachings of Ahmadiyah heretical

    which bigot bureaucrats  have used to shut down religious liberty in dismal Depok – more than once!

    I do suspect, however, that ‘heretical’  – and utterly inoffensive and peaceful  – Ahmadis today are saying ‘mohon ma’af’ for any little mistakes they have made, over the past 12 months, in good conscience, knowing that they have done nothing wrong in wishing to worship God Almighty in their own honourable way.

      The MUI must ‘seek forgiveness,’ just like you say.
      Depok kampung criminals who attack the mosque are stupid with no education but MUI are older and not stupid only mean and full with intolerance. So many mean things happen after the MUI fatwa.
      Why will President Jokowi not protect Ahmadiyya people.
      The Ahmadi do no harm.

    Shadow Of Islamist Intolerance Darkens Depok Once Again 


    It’s not as if we haven’t looked into the ugly face of Islamist intolerance in Depok scores of times, sometimes with a grimace at the antics of those involved Islamist Bigot Biter Bit in West Java 

    But at other times one has to feel nothing but contempt for the mean-spirited oppression of the inoffensive and utterly blameless Ahmadiyah religious minority.

    Sadly, the latest news falls into the latter category, nothing to smile about as sectarian bigotry blights the city yet again.

    The Mayor of Depok thinks it’s acceptable to hammer religious liberty in his dismal city, apparently to meet the demands of “certain groups that pressured him into forbidding Ahmadiyah followers from carrying out their worship activities in Depok.”

    =

    =

    Mayor Mohamed Idris sent in his goon-squad, the SatPol PP – civic militia – and now the Ahmadis’ Al-Hidayah Mosque has been sealed.

    One government flunkey tries to justify suppression of religious liberty by invoking the locals’ numbskull bigotry.

    fDepok National and Political Unity Agency head Dadang Wihana argued that the closure was aimed at maintaining a peaceful situation and to protect the Ahmadis themselves, saying that the locals had felt disturbed by their presence and they might incite conflicts.  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/08/ahmadis-plan-lawsuit-against-depok-administration.html

     One might think it’s numbskulls, like those who can’t observe other people’s ways of worship without getting ‘disturbed, that deserve the attentions of the SatPol PP.

    ======

    The militia is equipped with sturdy batons which might knock some sense into those numb skulls!

    It’s fairly nauseating to be back on the subject of religious liberty in Depok, West Java, yet again.

    =============

    It’s especially offensive because Ramadhan is meant to be a holy month of reflection and introspection, not persecution, but the authorities in Depok clearly care little for soul-searching and much more for witch-hunting.  

    Ahmadiyah spokesman Yendra Budiana said that the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the National Commission on Violence Against Women (Komnas Perempuan) had urged the mayor to not restrict religious freedom…  http://www.thejakartapost.com/news/2017/06/04/authorities-allegedly-seal-ahmadiyah-mosque-in-depok.html

    But decent people versus ‘certain groups?’

    Not much of a contest in Dark Age Depok.

    The Ahmadis are now talking lawsuit, but if the powerful Governor of Jakarta can be sent to prison for quoting an Islamic verse, what chance do a small congregation of humble folk persecuted in Depok have?

    Important question – who are these ‘certain groups?’

    Neither the Ahmadi leader nor the Jakarta Post seem up to telling us. Ahmadis, of course, have faced murderous persecution…

    —–

    Islamist beasts at their bloody work in Cikeusik

    —-

    … notably at Cikeusik six years ago, when three of them were martyred by a mob of Islamist savages. They have reasons to be wary.

    But it’s surely the Jakarta Post’s job to report properly and seek out the ‘certain groups?

    =

    Sectarian gangsters need to be exposed, not covered for, although there’s a pretty good bet that it’s IslamoNazis at work again.

    Which particular gang? I don’t know, and I haven’t got the resources the newspapers have to find out.

    If I had, I’d try.

    Has the JP tried?

    Doubt it.

    Depok ‘Friendly? To Saudi Royals, Not To Religious Liberty! 


    The conceit of politicians here is probably not much worse or much better than that back in the West.

    So reading about Depok Deputy Mayor Pradi Supriatna’s anguish, over the omission of his photo from a billboard erected to welcome the Saudi King ( currently on a state visit to Indonesia) made me smile.

    Mayor Mohammad Idris Abdul Shomad smiles too, from the billboard, leaving poor Pak Pradi to wail – “My picture should have been attached…”

    Was the King even going to Depok?

    The intolerance of religious dissent frequently reported there would likely gladden the royal heart…West Java – Depok’s Damnable Dreary Bigotry, Again! …but there is little to attract people there, except for the University of Indonesia‘s green and pleasant campus.

    But what expanded my smile to a slightly nauseous guffaw was the poster’s hilarious message – Depok, of all places, is – wait for it! –

    Let me make clear that, having been there myself, I am fully aware that many, even perhaps most, Depok dwellers are as friendly as anybody else.

    But as a civic entity?

    C’mon!

    As a municipal authority, Depok has shown itself as anything but friendly, certainly not friendly to religious liberty…

      Depok, Bekasi and Bogor, bad as each other.
      I hope Jakarta doesn’t go the same way after the run-off, but I think Anies the friend of the FPI might be the next governor, so where next for us expats that have liked living here for years.

    West Java – Depok’s Damnable Dreary Bigotry, Again! 


    No sooner have we reported on the Indonesian President’s alarm at the expansion of democracy in his country, than we have to highlight the shrinkage of religious liberty there.

    …………

    freedom-of-religion

    ………

    Almost needless to say, it’s back to Depok, a West Java municipality that abuts Jakarta, and has been the scene of disgusting persecution for years.

    Shariah City? Some 12,000 Reasons To Steer Clear of Depok! 

    • The latest episode occurred this weekend, vicious victimisation of the peaceful and inoffensive Ahmadiyah minority.
    • There’s apparently a video via this Metro TV link.  http://news.metrotvnews.com/peristiwa/ObzB7mlb-muncul-seruan-aksi-242-menolak-ahmadiyah-di-sawangan
    • A mob-march on a small Ahmadi congregation, bigots determined to shut them down? Will the police drive the bigots back, or force the Ahmadis to knuckle under?
    • .. 
    • If the cops allow suppression of religious liberty in Depok, it sure won’t be the first time. Even unlawful seizure of the minority’s property has gone unpunished in the past.

       

      • They make me want to vomit, all the usual suspects reportedly involved.
      • But a few others, people one might have hoped would speak up for pluralist values, have aligned themselves with Depok’s Dark Agers. 
      • Metro reports the following have appended their names to an appeal for a bigot mob to prevent the minority creed worshipping God.
      • \
      • Ahmad Daman Huri, head of the Islamic boarding school Al Karimiyah;
      • Abdullah Syafii, MUI Chairman in Sawangan;
      • Syahlani, NU Leader in Sawangan;
      • Mustofa, Muhammadiyah Leader in Sawangan;
      • Agus Rahmat Djaelani, FPI Chairman, Depok City
      • —————-

        • The IslamoNazi FPI
        • The self-styled ‘scholars’ of the MUI…
        • fatwa mui sholeh
      • ….these outfits are infamous for their intolerance.
      • ————
      • But more depressing is the inclusion of the NU notable, and the man from Muhammadiyah.
      • Those organisations were formerly regarded as moderate.
      • Nowadays?
      • ——–
      • din-syamsuddin-_120703152435-684
      • Din Sanyuddin, MUI chief
      • ————
      • Who knows, since Muhammadiyah’s kingpin, Din, became MUI’s also? I’d hoped Din might stamp out the backward elements among the ‘scholars’ – like their neanderthal enthusiasm for FGM and stoning adulterers.
      • But so far no joy.
      • And now we read of the Depok Muhammadiyah man lending support to suppression of religious freedom.

      So many stories from foreign places this week, Ross, and I know you are far away for now but I like that you do not forget Indonesia.
      This Depok story makes me sad, why can the people not go to the mosque in peace and not get mob coming at them.
      It is not right but I read today the city goverment in Depok act intolerant again and order mosque closed, and police do not protect the Ahmadiya right to worship in own mosque.
      I hope President Jokowi will help them keep their freedom to worship.

    Jokowi Urges Cops To Protect Minorities – in Depok? 


    Just watched the local news, and there was President Jokowi, addressing the massed ranks of Indonesia’s Finest, urging police to do more to protect minorities.

    ———-

    • jokowi-twitter
    • ——————-
    • Nice sentiment, but to hear him say such a thing from a podium in West Java made me wonder if Jokowi was joking.

    He hasn’t ordered the cops to enforce the Supreme Court order and unseal GKI Yasmin Church in nearby Bogor, where the congregation has been persecuted by evil Islamist fanatics for years, in defiance of the law.

    ratusan-jemaat-hkbp-dan-gki-yasmin-ibadah-di-depan-istana-001-mudasir

    Every second Sunday, if Jokowi looks out his Presidential Palace window downtown, he can see them worship on the street in protest againt this lawless oppression. 

    And he was actually speaking in DEPOK, the city where the completely innocent Ahmadi religious minority had its mosque seized by the City Government. https://rossrightangle.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/depok-jadi-kota-pki-islamist-council-grabs-private-property-communist-style/   That authoritarian, sectarian move underlined clearly the way jihadists are a mirror image of the PKI, the banned Indonesian Communist Party.

    The Communists are, thanks be, no longer a threat here, but their tradition of hostility to religious freedom lives on in the thinking and actions of those who rule Depok.

    It’s a great pity Jokowi evidently feels powerless to over-rule their bigotry!
