The Jakarta Post:

Entering their eight year of displacement, at least 118 Ahmadiyah refugees at the Wisma Transito shelter in Mataram, West Nusa Tenggara (NTB), expressed hope that the 2014 election could ring in the changes.

“We hope that the president and legislative members elected in the 2014 election could pay us more attention. February marked eight years of our displacement,” Transito shelter coordinator, Syahidin, told The Jakarta Post in Mataram on Wednesday.

Dozens of families were forced to live at the Transito shelter after they were ousted from their homes in Ketapang village, Lingsar district, West Lombok regency, in February 2006.

  1. DearAll,
    Hopefully the new legislators uphold the law and not standing on the law. What is right will always be right and what had been duly carried out by the mass in taking the law into their own hand albeit instigated by unscrupulous “ulama” is very unacceptable at all. This is very wrong and we are not living in a modern country executing jungle law. Lets there hope for a change.
