After over 5 years of blockade of Masjid An-Nur located in Bukit Duri, the mosque eventually opened in orderly fashion this Friday and the members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community of several locations performed Friday prayers at the mosque in peace and may start conducting worship in peace.

Nearly a hundred worshipers turned up for the Friday prayers led by Maulana Muhammad Diantono, the Ahmadiyya Imam and Khatib (preacher).

Although a week ago on Friday members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat could not use the mosque because some people from an extremist group known as FPI prevented their worship, today there were no longer any signs of intimidation.

There were representatives from the human right groups to monitor the worship activities of the Friday prayers and some members of the media were also seen covering the worship activities.

Also, as many as two local police platoon were also visible to prevent any chaos and maintain security.

Ahmadi members hope Masjid An Nur could continue to be used in peace.
