Assalamu ‘Alaikum Warahmat Allah Wabarakatuh,
Someone on the ”Alerts” page brought this to my attention.
The tragedy of Pakistan seems to be rapidly sliding eastwards into the equally beautiful country of Indonesia. During this blessed month the good Indonesian extremist ranks have taken it upon themselves to increase their Jihad against the ”Qadianis.” Some of what has been unforlding is as follows:
February 2011 – Three Ahmadis brutally murdered in Indonesia by a pack of animals. BBC Report
WARNING: Graphic footage of the animals at work.
April 2011 – Muslims gather in Jakarta to demand that Ahmadiyya is banned in Indonesia. BBC Report
April 2008 (Jazak Allah Peaceworld) – Ahmadi mosque burnt to the ground in Indonesia. BBC Report
Report showing Muslim clerics and the local authorities in Indonesia strategising as to how best to sack an Ahmadi mosque. Also that other minority groups have been targeted with parcel bombs being sent to prominent Christians and Jews in the country.
April 2011 – Indonesian government threatened with war if Ahmadiyya is not disbanded. BBC Report
August 2011 – International outrage as the February attackers are found guilty of murdering three Ahmadis and only sentenced to three and six months imprisonment respectively. BBC Report
August 2011 – Dedan Sudjana, one of the Ahmadis defending himself during the earlier attack in February, is sentenced to 6 months imprisonment. A longer sentence that the attackers who killed the three Ahmadis. BBC Report
These events follow on from years of persecution inflicted upon the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of Indonesia. This is the blessed month of Ramadan, please pray for the people of Indonesia and particularly the Ahmadis and other minority groups who are being targeted. Please also try to spread the awareness of these crimes!
