MUI urges government to ban Ahmadiyah
The Jakarta Post, Jakarta

The Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has urged the government to place a ban on Ahmadiyah to prevent further problems from flaring up.

“If [the Ahmadiyah congregation] is not banned, then [religious] fanatics will keep on harassing them,” MUI chairman Umar Shihab said on Tuesday.

He added that the ban placed by certain administrations on the Ahmadiyah congregation would make the Ahmadis conscious that they have diverged from Islam.

The government, he further said, must follow suit with the action taken by certain administrations which have imposed bans on the Ahmadiyah congregation.

“That’s why the government needs to ban [the Ahmadiyah congregation]…similar to the MUI which has banned the teachings [of the Ahmadiyah] which have deviated from the teachings of Islam,” he said, as quoted from Antara news service.
