Rights Commission Urges Authorities to be Strict on Sectarian Attack

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta — The National Human Rights Commission has responded to a renewed attack on the banned Islamic sect the Ahmadiyah yesterday (29/7) in West Java which involved thousands from different islamic organisations in Kuningan Regency.

Stanley Adi Prasetyo a commissioner with the national body said today (30/7) “even law enforcement apparatus could not curb certain belief of faith let alone those who are not part of the authority.”

Thousands of people from different islamic group which are against the Ahmadiyah sect attacked a group of people after a religious gathering by the Ahmadiyah group in Manis Lor Village on Thursday (29/7). Attacks on the group have been reported since 2007.

Stanley said authorities should take strict measure against those who take the law into their own hands radically which he said will affect those outside the conflict.


The reporter of this news is mistaken to quote Ahmadiyya Muslim as banned sect in Indonesia. Ahmadis do have some restrictions in respect of preaching/conversions but they are NOT banned.
