Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Indonesia Shows Its Tolerance
File under the term – Let the camel’s nose into the tent and the camel will surely follow.
I’ve written before about how the rise in intolerance grows with the rise in the percentage of Muslims in a country. Now we see the effect in what was formally one of the most "western and progressive" Muslim countries,
From 2004 to 2007, 110 churches were closed in
as a result of attacks from radical Muslim groups or by local governments coerced by these groups, reports Compass Direct News. Indonesia
Based on official numbers, a total of 1,025 churches have been closed or destroyed in
since the island nation claimed its independence in 1945. Notably, however, only two cases of church destruction or closures are recorded in the era of Indonesia ’s first president, Sukarno (1945 - 1967). Indonesia
And now the intimidation and persecution increased as the percentage of Mulsims have increased.
In one recent incident, a church in Sepatan, Tangerang province, was attacked by extremists last December when it refused to adhere to government orders to shut down. Moreover, the home of the church’s pastor was attacked by extremists who kicked out the home’s windows and doors and threw out his possessions.
Even when there are attempts at living peacefully with thier neighbors, Christians have been persecuted and even arrested.
High profile cases of Christian persecution in
include the 2005 arrests of three Christian Sunday school teachers who were accused of attempting to convert Muslim children. Indonesia
The Muslim parents had reportedly given full consent for their children to join Christian students in singing Christian songs, playing games and hearing Bible stories, but the court nevertheless sentenced the women to three years in prison. The women served two years and were released early for good behaviour last June.
This is warning to all countries with a growing Muslim population that there are those that seek to dominate not assimilate into their countries.
