Author: Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmadra, 4th Caliph of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
Description: Murder in the name of Allah is a general review, with special emphasis on the subject of freedom of expression in Islam. This book is a reminder that purpose of any religion is the spread of peace, tolerance, and understanding. It urges that meaning of Islam - submission to the will of God - has been steadily corrupted by minority elements in the community. Instead of spreading peace, the religion has been abused by fanatics and made an excuse for violence and the spread of terror, both inside and outside the faith.

RI President calls for the Sunday's attackers to be prosecuted

Antara, Jakarta

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono calls for the perpetrators of violence at a recent religious freedom peace rally to be prosecuted.

“Based on what happened yesterday, I urge that law be upheld and that the perpetrators be legally processed and given the appropriate punishment,” the President said Monday.

He said the police needed to improve their performance. The judicial system does not tolerate violent and anarchist behavior. The law needs to be enforced, he said.

Yudhoyono deplored the Sunday attacks perpetrated by Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) members against peace activists at the National Monument (Monas) in Central Jakarta, injuring 34 people.

The activists, who were National Alliance for the Freedom of Faith and Religion (AKKBB) members, entered the Monas area to commemorate the 63rd year of Pancasila state ideology, when they were confronted and beaten by FPI members.

“Yesterday’s violence was committed by a certain organization, certain rogue elements, giving our country a bad name at home and abroad,” the President said.

He urged against further acts of violence and called for restraint from all parties. “I hope everyone involved in rallies restrains themselves from committing violence and informs the police beforehand,” Yudhoyono said, adding that the police should ready themselves for future protests. (*)
