PEOPLE’S THOUGHTS – Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) activist Muhammad Guntur Romli was provoked by emotion after learning of the demolition of a mosque belonging to the Indonesian Ahmadiyah Congregation (JAI) in Sintang , West Kalimantan ( West Kalimantan ).
Knowing the action, Guntur Romli considered that it had gone too far.
According to him, people may disagree with the Ahmadiyya ideology. However, he did not agree with the destruction or demolition of houses of worship, such as the removal of Islamic religious symbols at the Sintang Ahmadiyah mosque .
” The Ahmadiyya Mosque in Sintang , West Kalimantan was demolished. The two sentences of the Creed were removed, the dome of the mosque was demolished. This has crossed the line. You may disagree with Ahmadiyah understanding, but don’t harass the house of worship ,” he said, as quoted by Mind-People.com from the Twitter account- @GunRomli on Wednesday, February 2, 2022.
In his tweet, he also attached a number of photos, in which the dome of the mosque was being removed from the roof of the mosque and the creed attached to the wall was also removed.
