The special requirements include, among others, there are 90 prospective users of houses of worship. If these special requirements have not been met, parties wishing to build a house of worship can apply for a permit to use a temporary place of worship to the district/city government. “Local governments should ensure that the constitutional rights of citizens are fulfilled, especially to be able to worship collectively in houses of worship or temporary places of worship,” he said.

      What is wrong with Muslim there?
      Islamic scolars had been accusing Ahmadiyah is not Islam.


      They follow Muhammad teaching. Like this

      When the end times will appear young people and bad attitude. They said word by using the word of GOD , when they had come out of Islam as an arrow from his bow slipping . Wherever you meet them , then kill them . Because real people are killed they will get a reward on the resurrection day ” HR Bukhari

      That is why Muslim in Indonesia killed people and destroyed mosque.

      God bless Ahmadiyah for the truth of Islam.🙏❤️
