Hundreds of people representing various Islamic organizations crowded around the Hotel Indonesia traffic circle in Central Jakarta at midday on Friday, demanding the government disband the Ahmadiyah sect.

The demonstrators represented, among others, members of the Islam Defenders Front (FPI), Islamic Peoples Forum (FUI) and Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia.

A report on says the protesters carried flags and banners that read “Cut off those who contempt Islam”, “Muslims are ready to guide victims of Ahmadiyah infidels” and “Muslims [must] disband Ahmadiyah”.

The demonstration is a reaction to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s recent statement in which he said that unlawful and violent organizations must be disbanded.
