Indonesia as new Pakistan LIPPO CIKARANG - It seems to be very common these days that after every Friday and Sunday, there are messages in the Indonesian press in which the results of the criminal intolerance of a small group of severely mentally limited people have tarnished the Indonesian state-ideology once more.

To name some of the sinners; it is mostly oriented to a few single radical Islamic organisations like FPI (Front Pembela Islam, Islamic Defenders Front), FUI Forum Umat Islam, Islamic Forum) and Garis (Gerakan Reformasi Islam, Islamic Reform Movement) that need to humiliate and scare those that think differently. If they have the chance they will also take away their constitutional right to free religion as well.

On recent Fridays it seems to be Ahmadiyah was the target. They are an Islamic sect that has one more prophet, something that is not acceptable to some Islamists and thus they have to go into the offence over this. The way they do it becomes increasingly violent, without taking into account that Indonesia is a country that upholds the law - or should do that. These are Pakistani actions that seem to have found their way into Indonesia.

Demonstration against the FPI, something that is very rare until this point in time.

Mosques and houses of Ahmadiyah members - the government itself has banned this sect from under heavy pressure of Islamic organisations last year, which seems to be the starting point of violent action against them - are burned, residents scared away to other villages and areas. This now happens frequently on Java and West Nusa Tenggara, mainly on the island of Lombok.

But of course these Islamic radicals don't think this is enough, because the battle against 'enemies of the Islam' is increasing for years - steadily but surely. Those 'enemies' are not only members of Islamic sects, but more Christians, which they like to 'catch in the act' when they are practicing their own religion.

Temporary churches like residences and departments of shopping malls - permits for the construction real churches is problematic and are rarely issued nowadays in Islamic regions of Indonesia - are sometimes surrounded by dozens or even hundreds of men in white dresses - ooh, sorry, cloths - only to scare away those praying. Sometimes police is present, but just to guide away the church-goers.

The first time that the police takes harsh actions against those Islamic criminal organisation still has to come. It is obvious that those radicals try to go one step further every time they have a chance to do so. Churches are being sealed, religious followers scared away during their services and Christians are being chased like cattle to make sure that they will stay away from their church the following Sundays.

This kind of situations more resemble Pakistani situations instead of civilized Indonesian situations. Knowing this, it is not very strange that not many people seem to know what action shoul be taken to stop this religious violence, while in fact it is fairly simple. Those responsible for this kind of actions should be punished because they violate constitutional laws.

Only president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono should denounce groups like these, to make it possible for the police, or even the army if needed, to clean up this country to make sure that all people are free to worship what they like without having the fear that someone is standing behind them with a sword or that windows are smashed all of a sudden.

This all is made pretty easy by the fact that organisations like the FPI do not hesitate to show criminal behavior in public; surrounding churches is hostage taking; attacks on worshippers is abuse and smashing windows of churches and mosques is willingly damaging property. Which pragmatic Indonesian person has the guts to file police reports against these organisations and is also prepared to appear in court to demand that this kind of problems stops immediately?
