Indonesia: Muslims Shut Down Protestant Church Accused of Proselytising Muslims


By Joseph DeCaro – “JATINANGOR, INDONESIA (Worthy News)– Muslims of the Islamic Defender Front aided by local officials recently shut down a Protestant church in Jatinangor on rumors that the church was a haven for newly baptised Christians.

Rev. Bernard Maukar, head of the Christian community, was also accused of proselytising in a predominantly Muslim area.

The chief of the village where the church is located said he had the right to close it down because it was within his jurisdiction.

‘This area is under my authority,’ said Arief Saefolah. ‘Please, get out as soon as possible.’

Saefolah and other local officials seized all Christian property, including furniture, musical instruments, and vehicles.

A Christian woman lamented that the police didn’t lift a finger to stop the vandalism.

‘Police have no guts against this radical group,’ she said.” Source.
