  1. Sorry for the English, google translate was used.

    The ‘Lombok incident’ got and is still getting very wide coverage in the Indonesian press. Unfortunately the local police does not take much action and the local authorities also try their best which however is not good enough.

  2. Rafiq—hopefully are you fine , it seems to me that Police did not protect Ahmadiyyah community at all there—

    do not you consider to move from Lombok for the savety of your family and property?

    May Allah protect Rafiq and Family there. Amen
    All love ❤️

  3. My advice to Ahmadiyya Rafiq,

    Please do not provoke the extremist Muslim in Indonesia and Pakistan with the logo, or label of Ahmadiyyah in public until Government really protect the right of Ahmadiyyah to believe what they want.

    All love ❤️
