OIC says FPI should not act on behalf of Islam

Posted by David Khoirul

Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, questioned the decision of hard-liner group Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) to label themselves as an Islamic community, reiterating that Islam has a standard for the Holy Koran and sunnah (traditions of the Prophet Muhammad).

Ihsanoglu told English newspaper The Jakarta Post at the Presidential Office on Monday:

From where did they get the license to do such things? When somebody says ‘I am doing this in the name of Islam,’ we have to question who gave them the license to speak on behalf of Islam.
