Muslim Politicians in Indonesia

Reader comment on item: Islam's Future [Can Be Modern]

Submitted by ali morris (Indonesia), Apr 3, 2003 at 02:50

I am Indonesian man where live in majority muslim country. When i was child in 1980's, most muslim people live in tolerant and love peace. Since 1995 when muslim Politicians get power in government (Habibie), our circumstances going backwards.

Look at the violence happen everyday in my country. Many church burnt, christian live in fear, we can not build church and christmas bomb in 2000 take many people died. Do you think our goverment take serious action? Nothing! Mr. Hamzah Haz (vice president) said that any intelectual actor from foreign trying to provocating Indonesia. Here have no terrorist muslim, muslim live in love, peace and bla...bla..(rakhmatin lil alamin).

Do you know why in Bali bomb blast police get involved? Why? Because most the victims are tourist (Australia, UK, USA). Do you believe if people who died are indonesian will get the response?
No way. Muslim officers will cover the actor behind this violence.

Brother look at in other place in Indonesia such Poso, Ambon, Aceh etc. How many people suffer because of this ...religion? When Muslims small they are said we love peace, tolerance and blah...blah. But after they have power they try to press you to follow islamic law. In Aceh islamic law already run, South Sulawesi will be coming, West Sumatra will coming soon (still in debates in parliament).

Do you know what happen in Aceh after Islamic law running? No church anymore, non-muslim must get out, no live if you non-muslim. But see in America, Europe most immigrant muslim escape from their country to get better life and democracy. They proclaimed that islam is peace, love and helpful for mankind. Do not believe to this propaganda.

I honestly say to all of you, I live in muslim country where they live in hate to kafir people. To say 'merry christmas' is haram (prohibited by Allah) as Fatwa from Muslim Leader.

Why muslim country live in poor and violence? Because they basic religion teach only hatred, inferior of woman, no respect to non-muslim.
...

God bless us.
