Ahmadis in C. Sulawesi told to stop using house as place of worship
The Jakarta Post

An Ahmadiyah community in Sigi, Central Sulawesi, says its local House of Representatives (DPRD) was discriminating against them by demanding they stop using a house in the area as a place of worship.

“We have been in Sigi since the 1960s…We have never done anything to upset the community’s sense of security or disturb the region’s security,” Sigi Ahmadiyah leader Ahmad Najamuddin said Sunday, as quoted by

Sigi DPRD chairman Gesang said the Ahmadiyah community must stop using the house as a place of worship or the government would force them to do so.

“Please use that Ahmadiyah mosque shaped like a house as a house, not a mosque,” Gesang said. He added that a permit from the local government was needed before establishing a place of worship.
