Jakarta. In the latest example of religious intolerance in Indonesia, a group of unknown people attacked an Ahmadiyah mosque in South Jakarta early on Friday morning.
The sword-wielding assailants smashed the windows of the Al Hidayah Mosque on Jalan Ciputat Raya in Kebayoran Lama and left. No injuries were reported.
Mubarik, spokesman for Jakarta’s Ahmadiyah community, confirmed the attack.
Police are yet to comment.
In October, a mob of hundreds ransacked and burned down houses, schools and a mosque in Cisalada village, home to 600 followers of the minority sect, which is deemed deviant by many mainstream Muslims.
Last November, a group of conservative Muslims held a rally at an Ahmadiyah mosque in North Jakarta.
