Angry Indonesia Muslims Surround Homes Of Christians

Monday, December 27, 2010

JAKARTA, INDONESIA (Worthy News)-- Tensions remained high Sunday, December 26, near Jakarta where a group of angry Muslims backed by police surrounded homes of Christians in protests against what they called "unauthorized religious services", Worthy News learned.

Christians said over 100 members of the Batak Christian Protestant Church (HKBP) home church were forced to flee the mob during the December 12 incident in the village of Rancaekek Wetan, details of which just emerged.

Local police chief Hendro Pandowo reportedly acknowledged that the situation in the village was tense.

He said the Christians did not have a permit to use houses as places of worship, but added that Muslims obtained a permit to hold the protest.  "If the place was legally designated as a church, we'd provide security protection. Otherwise, we can't do much as it's against the law," he told reporters.

CHRISTIANS "FORCED"

The Christians argue that they are forced to hold services inside their homes because local authorities have refused or ignored a number of requests to approve a place of worship for them.

They have appealed to President Yudhoyono for protection after the congregation was attacked several times, said advocacy group Barnabas Fund, which investigates the incident.

In September, one of the church's leaders was reportedly stabbed. "A number of other churches in Indonesia have also been subject to threats or actual violence. In December alone, explosive devices were found at four Christian buildings; only two of these detonated," added Barnabas Fund.

Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim nation. Christians comprise roughly 9 percent of the country's 243 million people, according to the United States Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

    • Islam is nothing more than a 7th century cult. A cult that believes in violence, suicide bombings, destroying schools, beheadings of innocent children who "happen" to be Christian.

      Muslims cannot live in a civilized world as they follow the teachings of a child molester and a pervert. They believe that Mohammad and his teachings and the koran, the new Mein Kampf, must be obeyed. Such idiotic thinking. There is no hope that islam can live with any other religion. They are too perverted.

      This will eventually lead to a clash of religions and the end of islam. The sooner the better.....

  1. ISLAM IS NOT A RELIGION. IT IS A HATE GROUP. ALL OF PEACEFUL, CIVILIZED RELIGIONS SHOULD UNITE TO FIGHT IT & RID THIS PLANET OF IT.

  2. Until the muslim is removed from peaceful society there will be hate mongering on their part and destruction from their actions. So I say all peaceful citizens should resist all muslim attempts to circumvent humanity. Islam is satanic at best.

  3. Islam needs to be wiped off the face off the earth and it will only happen when they see
    the Glory of Christ the True Living God who made all things and every eye will see Him
    people who are Islamic need to repent and come to Jesus who is able to save them
    from the lies and destruction of the own souls from Islam, The Lords return is near
    read the Bible and you well see for yourself.
