Knowing how the Ahmadiyya leadership operates, this news report shows how they are pressuring poor Indonesian Ahmadis to adopt the ‘Punjabi’ way of non-cooperation.
“The presence of Ahmadiyah had been rejected some years ago in the area. Moreover, An Nur is not a mosque. It is a house and that’s why it can’t be used for Friday prayers. Residents in the neighborhood had frequently demanded the Ahmadis pray together with them in the community mosque, but the Ahmadis refused,” the police officer said.
Tebet subdistrict head Mardi Youce was also present and he said he tried to calm down both parties.“I can’t side with one party. Two months ago the [Sunni] Muslims and Ahmadiyah representatives signed a pact. The latter agreed not to do Friday prayers at that place anymore,” he said.
Aryudi admitted the meeting occurred, but said, “We only want to pray according to what we believe.”
He went on to say that Ahmadiyah had been in the area since the 1970s. Aryudi added that most of the residents accepted their presence and activities. He pointed his finger at the preacher Syakir, blaming him for the Ahmadi’s troubles.
