Zarima Mirafsur enlists the help of the FPI.

Zarina Mirafsur alias Zarima is, or was, a television actress, who has had a troubled and somewhat comical past. She has been convicted of drug possession twice, once of 30,000 tablets of Ecstasy and once of a small amount of shabu-shabu, and has served several years in prison. She famously evaded police custody in Jakarta in 1997 by climbing out of a toilet window before fleeing to America. Once in America she was arrested by police hiding behind a rack of sexy underwear in a department store in Texas, and then deported back to Indonesia. [1]

Zarima in 2000 gave birth to a daughter, Nikita Chairunnisya or Chaerunnisa, before or after entering into an informal marriage with one Ferry Juan (Zarima claims it was after). Zarima handed Nikita over to Ferry when she was sent to prison again and Ferry has had custody of the girl ever since.

For several years now Zarima has been fighting to get Nikita back, with Ferry fighting her all the way, and she has now turned to the Islam Defenders' Front (FPI) crack legal team for help.

Zarima is Muslim and Ferry is not, and Zarima, and the FPI, complain that Ferry has brought Nikita up according to his religion, and not Islam. What's more, Ferry had changed the girl's name, from Nikita Chairunnisya to Nikita Juan, and even prevented Zarima from visiting her.


Zarima Mirafsur, & a burly FPI lawyer.

FPI lawyer Sugito says the Front Pembela Islam regards the matter of getting Nikita back as "jihad", and says Zarima's rights as a mother have to be defended.

We will get that child back by any means, but peaceful means. We will ask the police to help but if they don't help we will send in our men.

Another FPI lawyer, M. Hidayat Imran, said he was aware of Ferry's determination to keep Nikita but threatened him that the FPI could bring more men out than all of Ferry's money could buy.

If he wants violence we're ready.

Ferry had called the FPI a bunch of thugs, he said, and the FPI was offended. [2]

The National Child Protection Commission says the case depends on whether Ferry is the biological father of Nikita or not, and on which parent Nikita wants to be with. [3]

    What kind of (real) lawyer would make such an idiotic statement? but anyway, that kind of lawyers deserves the kind of client they get: Zarima :D

    I found myself chuckled reading this. lol :)
    Muslims should be offended by those FPI potheads bringing the word jihad down to such a low value. One of these days, they will go take a leak and claim that it also constitutes as jihad.

    Most likely these ragtag claimed-themselves-to-be-lawyers morons got their law degree from “the law faculty of syalala university at stop-at-bajaj-station-go-straight-ahead-until-you-find-cigarettes-
    stall-turn-left-and-ask-the-bum-there-for-direction-and-the-university-
    will-be-just-around-the-corner-right-between-gas-pump-and-ciliwung-river”.
    I heard they taught that you can always resort to violence if all legal means fail to produce the outcome that you want.

    Ferry had called the FPI a bunch of thugs, he said, and the FPI was offended.

    Of course they should feel offended, they’re “a bunch of morons who happen to be thugs also”, not simply “a bunch of thugs”. FPI should sue Ferry for his omitting the keyword ‘moron’ on his statement also.

    This adds yet another dimension to the already rich in meaning “Jihad”.

    Ha ha.

    Thanks Patung for bringing this hilarious news to us, although at the same time it is extremely unsettling to hear this sort of thing happening in our country. This is another reason why FPI needs to be dismantled. They’re embarrassing. Where are their values anyway? Trying to bring a child from a father back to a drug addict (albeit Muslim) mother? I thought Islam didn’t approve of drug taking? Wait, or is it just alcohol?

    How can they say they want peace when they are already ready for violence to begin with?

    Wouldn’t it be better if FPI deal other major issues despite meddling into a celebrity’s life? Hungry and jobless Muslims out there.

    FPI has to be disbanded. They abused the principle of amar ma’ruf nahi munkar for their own miserable gain. It only tarnishes the brand image of Islam and becomes a disgrace to the otherwise peaceful, middle-of-the-road and good citizen Moslems. BIN should investigate this bunch of morons and the Police should discipline them. I couldn’t believe this could happen in Indonesia for sooooo loooooong. Who are the sponsors of FPI and the beneficiaries of their deeds? Certainly not the law abiding Muslims of Indonesia!

    Not so long ago I saw pictures of members of FPI also defending Adiguna Sutowo (who was convicted for killing an innocent bartender). Then FPI said that they cannot stop their members from doing that, afterall, it is OK to do so under the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. What I felt then was that FPI (through its participating members) is not a defender of Islam, but a defender of an almost sure killer. Now by association or by extension it also defends Pontjo Sutowo (Adiguna’s brother) who was convicted for seven year jail + fine yesterday. Are they so naive, or are they so dumb?

    Is there anything else in this world that could make the face of FPI less ugly? Disband it and prevent any new development of such a group of thugs! Assalamualaikum.

    Have to agree with all the comments here, these people are a bunch of paid thugs hiding behind Islam to cover their criminal nature. One commenter made a very valid point, how have they managed to escape the process of law for so long, who is actually behind them?

    Peace

    “who is actually behind them?”

    They are *******’s private militia, that’s why they are untouchable.

    FPI is a joke. Clearly, they are street thugs hiding behind name of a religion.
    I’m not moeslim but I feel sorry for my true moeslim brothers and sisters.

    Lawyer, bunch of thugs and a drug dealer. What a superb combination.
    No wonder Ferry refuses to return the kid to her mom. Every single human being with common sense wouldn’t do that, regardless whether one is related to the kid or not. The kid’s life will very well be RUINED if she’s returned to her criminal mom, surrounded by drugs and befriend with thugs, and possibly will have fake lawyer as her stepdad. Every single person in Indonesia (or at least Jakarta) knows this is a criminal organization, they disturb peace and threaten public safety. Why hasn’t the government or military army done anything about it yet?
