Ahmadiyah to stop its activities on Lebaran day

Posted by David Khoirul

Ahmadiyah in South Sulawesi banned Blimbing, my home village, is free from misleading groups like Ahmadiyah, though hard-liners such as Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and Hizbut Thahrir grow like healthy grass. In South Sulawesi, however, where Ahmadiyah communities exist, goverment officials forbid the group to do any religious activities on Lebaran day.

South Sulawesi governor Syahrul Yasin Limpo said according to his subordinate’s report, the condition in the province was conducive, but he said he was concerned that Ahmadiyah members would still conduct activities over the holiday, which could promote violence.

We don't want a repeat of conflicts, we will guard the Ahmadiyah mosque,” Syahrul said Friday as quoted by tempointeraktif.com

Syahrul refused to comment on whether Ahmadis could conduct worship activity in their mosques. “I cannot answer that. But their religious activities are certainly forbidden.
