By Muhammad Zafrulla Khan
This concisely written text presents the teachings of Islam and their distinct superiority over various Articles that make up the Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations and universally acclaimed as the greater charter of freedom. The author explains how 1400 years ago, Islam emancipated the poor and oppressed and gave the world the basic prescription for the respect and value of all human beings irrespective of class, colour or creed. Those instructions contained in the Holy Qur'an remain as relevant today as they were at the time that it was revealed. However, with the passage of time, some parts of Muslim society neglected Qur'anic teachings with an inevitable decline in moral standards. The author however concludes on an optimistic note that the revival of Islam is happening and with it a close adherence to the values laid out in the Holy Qur'an

Kalla blames security authorities for attack on Ahmadiyah

Andi Hajramurni, The Jakarta Post, Makassar, South Sulawesi

Former vice president Jusuf Kalla said security authorities were to blame for the latest attack on Ahmadiyah followers on Friday night and other acts of violence plaguing the country in the last six months.

Kalla said the attack on the Islamic sect members in Ciampea village in the West Java regency of Bogor should have not occurred had the police strictly enforced the law and taken tough measures against those who violated the law.

“Security authorities should not hesitate to take stiff actions against offenders of the law. The should not be afraid of being accused of violating human rights, because human rights do not prohibit security personnel from taking firm measures,” Kalla said after a public lecture for new students of Muhammadiyah University in Makassar, South Sulawesi on Saturday.

Kalla, who now chairs the Indonesian Red Cross, said he was against Ahmadiyah teachings, but he could not tolerate the use of violence against followers of the Islamic sect, which the Indonesia Ulema Council has declared heretical.

He added that dissolving the sect was not a solution to the Ahmadiyah case, citing adverse impacts on thousands of its followers.

“In principle Ahmadiyah followers must not propagate the sect’s teachings which go against Islam. If they spread the teachings among themselves, it will not matter,” Kalla said.
