Immigration (illegal), separatism, jihad. via FPI Attacks Buddhist Temples During Rohingya Protest | The Jakarta Globe.
Makassar. A rally by the Islamic Defenders Front against the killing of Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar turned violent in Makassar on Friday, as protesters attacked two Buddhist temples in the South Sulawesi capital.
The Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) began the rally after finishing their Friday prayer at Al-Markaz Al-Islami Mosque, forming a convoy and traveling down some of the city’s main streets.
On Jalan Sulawesi, they stopped and threw stones at Kwang Kong Buddhist temple. A few protesters were seen banging the door of the temple with wooden sticks.
The group also went to throw stones at Xian Ma temple, which is a secretariat office for the South Sulawesi branch of the Council of Buddhist Communities (Walubi).
Police officers stopped the attack by facilitating a meeting between the FPI protesters and Yongris, head of the Walubi branch.
Yongris told the FPI that Walubi regretted the killings of Rohingya Muslims, including those allegedly conducted by Myanmar security forces. He asked the protesters to urge Myanmar authorities to end the atrocity.
“We really regret the slaughtering,” he said. “We truly don’t approve of violence.”
Unfortunately, an infamous Islamic slogan is “we (Muslims) love death more than they (infidels) love life.”
