Three members of the Ahmadiyah community killed by a mob in Banten province on Sunday will be buried in Jakarta today.

“The burial will take place in Jakarta today for security’s sake,” Ahmadiyah activist Firdaus Mubarik told the Jakarta Globe on Monday.

National Police Chief Gen. Timur Pradopo said 1,500 residents attacked 25 Ahmadiyah members who had refused to leave the house of a Ahmadiyah cleric in Umbulan village, Cikeusik subdistrict, Pandeglang, at around 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Three members of the minority Muslim sect were killed and six others injured in the attack.

“We arrived and asked them to vacate the house but they refused. At the same time, some 1,500 villagers showed up and then the incident occurred,” he said. “I assure you that we shall really investigate the case.”

Two of the deceased are brothers born in Cikeusik but Firdaus said it would be “too risky” to bury them in their own village.

“We consider the situation is not conducive for the burial to take place in the victims’ hometown; therefore we are taking them to Jakarta,” Firdaus said.

He urged the police to thoroughly investigate the attack and prosecute those responsible.

“The authorities must bring those who are responsible for the murder to justice and guarantee the security of Ahmadiyah followers everywhere,” he said.

The bodies of the deceased are currently at the Police Hospital in Serang, Banten.

The injured are being treated at Serang General Hospital.

All the victims had previously received treatment at the Malingping General Hospital in Lebak, Banten.

A hospital staff member, Mahdiat, told state news agency Antara that most of the victims had suffered stab wounds.

Indonesian Twitter users widely condemned the attack and started a Black Monday movement.

A user, @rayafahreza, called on people to wear black on Monday “to mourn the death of diversity in Indonesia.”

Human right activists and their supporters planned a “black rally” in front of the State Palace at noon where the rally participants don black outfits as a sign of remorse.
