    Virus Jakarta – Good Citizen Attacked, Louts Unpunished 


    Pak President asked all of us to work even harder and encourage communities to be more disciplined and officials to be stricter, so we can start going back to a normal life in July..”

    China is Lying, Coronavirus started in Wuhan

    .

    That’s from the chief of Indonesia’s virus task force, and more power to the man, whom we see on tv every day.

    But what  are the Jakarta authorities actually doing to ‘encourage communities to be more disciplined?’

    While so many decent people in Jakarta are faithfully following the rules, a good citizen has been forced to apologise for..guess what?

    .

    .

    Being a good citizen!

    Mr.Aselih, aged 62, lives in the Pulo Gadung area of the capital and admirably reported a ‘religious’ crowd of klutzes who violated the very clear anti-virus rules by attending a ‘tarawih,’ a mass gathering at a local mosque!

    Aselih tagged a video of their arrogant violation to Governor Anies Baswedan’s official account.

    .

    Quite rightly, for Anies Baswedan has said that anyone found violating the PSBB measures, such as individuals participating in public gatherings and offices of nonessential companies remaining open, would be punished…

    Damn right!

    But that crowd in Pulo Gadung have not, apparently, been punished, not even a little bit.

    Instead, Mr. Aselih’s home came under attack by a gang of vile cowardly louts.

    You can see for yourselves the anti-social yellow-bellies in action, mob ‘courage,’ the kind of hoodlums who would run like mangy rats from a fair fight.

    His garden was wrecked and fireworks hurled at his house.

    The police have not arrested the rabble.

    It seems they have not even had an official report – the Pulogadung district head, Bambang Pangestu, says the gutless curs have merely ‘been advised not to repeat their actions.
    “They will be reported to the police if they carry out a similar action in the future,” he said.

    Instead, the good citizen, Mr. Aselih, after ‘mediation’ with un-named ‘religious’ and other persons, has felt obliged to apologise for doing his civic duty.

    An apology?!?

    And a cowed deletion of  the video he sent to the governor?

    .

    .

    The right and proper course of action, in my view, would be for the authorities to make an example of the uppity berks who wilfully flouted the rules.

    While shariah floggings are only used in Indonesia’s Aceh Province, those obnoxious young Jakarta douche-bags who ran amok in revenge deserve to be publicly shamed, paraded in manacles through the streets,  then jailed…

    .

    .

    …for years, rather than months.

    I would have hoped that the very least Governor Anies Baswedan could do might include a visit to Mr. Aselih, personally to congratulate him.

    And if the Governor’s in the neighbourhood, he could also pay a call on the buffoons who broke the rules and tell them that if they dare step out of line again, ever, then fines and/or jail-time will be their reward.

    Otherwise, why would the governor expect the rest of us to listen to his exhortations?

      Good morning and good blogging.
      I think these hooligans deserve a good flogging.
