MAKASSAR: South Sulawesi Governor Syahrul Yasin Limpo has approved a proposal to ban Ahmadiyah activities in his province.
A gubernatorial bylaw will be deliberated together with representatives of Muslim community organizations in the province, the governor said Thursday.
The approval apparently responded to demands by the Muslim organizations, including the Nahdlatul Ulama and the Muhammadiyah, which consider the Ahmadiyah sect heretical.
“The gubernatorial decree will consist not only of the banning but also of ways to encourage Ahmadiyah members adopt mainstream Islamic teachings,” Syahrul said. — JP
Note: What a contrast: 3 new Mosques in Germany, a ‘ban’ in Sulawesi.
