Mob Attack in Aceh

Nov 9th, 2006, in News, by

A group called Muhammadiyah in Aceh feels the wrath of the mob.

In Kreung Peudawa, West Aceh, on the 7th, hundreds of people attacked the followers of a Muslim group which calls itself “Muhammadiyah”. The group’s under-construction mosque, At-Taqwa, was damaged in the attack. It appears local people object to the building of the mosque because the “Muhammadiyah” group are suspected of being heretics. metrotv

    This is shari’at without haqiqat : litteralism against spirit. Sad.
    The righteous man takes care of his own defects : systematically taking care of the others’ defects may be called fascism. This is not peculiar to Islam but to stupidos. What about building a “pabrik miras” on a sacred Hindu land? Kill them all! Are we in a video game? Yeah, I’m sad for that all…

    Let us hope that those Muhammadiyah people are wiser and learn something from this incidence, namely to be tolerant to other. and to stand for it. Its enough intolerance, disrespect, hate and dogmatism. A prise more of love each other will make this life worth living.

    Being “suspected of being heretics” is no reason to beat people. More zealotry again. God help Indonesia.
