Mosque, houses of Ahmadiyah followers burned down

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

Hundreds of people set a mosque and five houses reportedly belonging to followers of Ahmadiyah in Ciampea village in the West Java regency of Bogor to fire on Friday night, stirring panic among the Islamic sect members.

Bogor police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Tomex Kurniawan said at least 150 officers and two companions of Mobile Brigade troops had been deployed to restore peace and order in the village.

A number of Ahmadiyah followers were seen fleeing their village to keep themselves from the angry mass, reported.

One of Ahmadiyah follower, Syaiful Mu’munin, said the arson attack came suddenly. He said the people vented their anger following a report that an Ahmadiyah member stabbed a relative of the attackers.

The Indonesian Ulema Council has banned Ahmadiyah and its teachings, calling the sect as heretical.
