Minister Points to Decree as 'Moderate' Way to Solve Conflicts Against Ahmadiyah - The Jakarta Globe

Minister Points to Decree as 'Moderate' Way to Solve Conflicts Against Ahmadiyah - The Jakarta Globe | Chris' Regional Geography | Scoop.it
chris tobin's insight:

May 6, 2013 Batak Christians, Indonesian Shiite Muslims and Islamic Ahmadiyah protest the US Embassy there against giving the "Word Statesman" Award to Indonesia President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono from the Appeal Of Conscience Tolerance and Peace Foundation in New York (an interfaith coalition promoting mutual understanding). 

 

In 2008, The Ministry of Home Affairs and the Atty.General's Office banned Ahmadiyah from spreading their beliefs to other people.  Shiites and Christians have been targeted and Human Rights Watch have accused the government of 'emboldening' Islamic radicals by 'failing to curb the persecution' and recent attacks on houses and a mosque in Belast, West Java was sealed with members still inside in April by local government and a mosque in Depok was closed Tuesday.

 

The government states that the Aghmadiyah people ..."should refer to mainstream Islamic teachings"...as Muslims.

This is an article from the Jakarta Globe.
