I thought indonesia is a secular nation.
If the parliament does not curtail this, then it will only spread. Like what happened to the jews in germany in the thirties.
Initially, they have praying rooms, then a mosque, and soon the whole government department will be turned into a religious institution. Very few will dare to challenge the religious authorities, and this will undermine democracy.
Challenge the religious hypocrites before it is too late brothers. When you belong to a religion, you are blinded to the wrong doings and evil deeds.
Promote peace and righteousness. A just society, uninfluenced by religion will be better for all.
Remember, Moses challenged Pharoah, who was a priest.
Silly government people why don’t they have their civil servants and village heads learn a useful language like English, or something like that? Indonesia please stop being a bunch of wahhabist-wannabies for God sake.
We should just asked the wahabis to colonize us or declare that we are no longer an independent, democratic nation but a province of any country as long as they are wahabis.
I can’t believe that some people actually believe this nation is going somewhere……
Anywhere but up I suppose.
More tame arab pets. Still at least he makes no pretence at representing all the voters his region…
Still you see why the Dutch referred to the Indonesians as the easiest to rule of all their colonies..
Well it says that the regulation only applies to moslem employees.
But one can still say that a regulation like this is discriminative; because it applies to most, but not to all. Therefore it is against the constitution. But it seems that nobody care enough to make a legal case out of it.
is there anyway we can dismantle this country, ya know.. like when we get damaged ikea product. oh didnt work, dismantle and get a new one
Come to think of it, this regulation is more dangerous (!!) than just being discriminative.
It can be made a tool to block moderate moslems from occupying important posts; because for them the regulation applies, and you can expect that their arabic tend to be worse than those from pesantrens. Meaning that the regulation leans more towards the moslem traditionalists.
Yes the old religious rot is setting in, and spreading like a cancer, look at the other areas in Indonesia with the introduction of barbaric sharia law, soon you can say goodbye to democracy, unless the moderate Moslem’s do something before it’s to late.
Oh like there’s not much else to do…. or maybe that’s right, there’s really nothing else to do for civil servants in their daily lives.
By the way, reading and writing Arabic is one thing, but understanding it is another.
I think the latter is more important, but as usual – characteristically Indonesian – they focus on the wrong ones… which is why we’re in a very deep shit.
Regulations like this will spread throughout Indonesia and will only fuel ‘separtism’ and revolts in christian and moderatly islamic regions like Maluku, Papua and probably Bali, Kalimantan and Minahasa.
God can only speak Arabic of course…
I haven’t been in Indo for only 3 years and we go down the toilet this fast?
Like, seriously, they can sujud sampe jidatnya benjol but if they keep up with corruption there is NO way we can be prosperous and free from “social ills”
Well hell, I think the regent of Bogor himself is ill!
