Ahmadiyah should not promote teachings: Kalla

The Jakarta Post

MAKASSAR: Ahmadiyah should not promote its views to the public because it strays from mainstream Islam, former vice president Jusuf Kalla says.

Kalla made the statement at a lecture to more than 6,600 Muhammadiyah University students in Makassar on Saturday.

However, people must avoid anarchism and violence in rejecting Ahmadiyah, he said.

“Ahmadiyah’s ideology does not conform with Islam. That’s why [Ahmadiyah] should not disseminate it to others. They may of course do so internally,” he said.

Some radical Muslims have violently attacked Ahmadiyah followers, most recently in Bogor, West Java. — JP
