Sufi heretics in Lombok, of the Abu Yazid al Bustami group, fall foul of the mob and the police.
Hundreds of people in the village of Gerung, West Lombok, attacked the home of one Baiq Rahma, the leader of the Abu Yazid al Bustami sect in the area, on the 14th. Police managed to prevent any serious violence.
It appears the anger of the mob was aroused when they heard that the Abu Yazid Bustami sect required its members to replace the name of Muhammad with that of Abu Yazid al Bustami, when saying the syahadat, or proclamation of faith.
Four sect members, Sahdi, Lalu Ratmajaya, Muhamad Mujadi, and Baiq Rahma are currently being interrogated at the police station.
The man Abu Yazid al Bustami, sometimes called Bayazid Bastami, was a Persian sufi who lived 804-874 AD, and appeared to believe that God had become incarnate in himself.
