The Ahmadiyah Mosque in Temunak District, Sintang, West Kalimantan (West Kalimantan) was damaged by hundreds of people after Friday prayers.

The crowd who came and destroyed the mosque, used various tools ranging from wood, bamboo, to stone.

The mosque is a place of worship belonging to the Indonesian Ahmadiyya Congregation (JAI). The mosque building is located in Balai Harapan Village, Tempunak District, Sintang, West Kalimantan.

In response to this, Abdurrahman Wahid’s eldest daughter, Alissa Wahid, admitted that she was furious with the arbitrary actions of this group of people.

He considered that, whatever the reason, the destruction of other people’s buildings is an act of violating the law, terror, and destroying the constitutional rights of the people.

“A group of people on behalf of Muslims damaged the Ahmadiyah mosque building in Sintang. Whatever the reason, this is a violation of the law: destruction of buildings belonging to people, violation of citizens’ constitutional rights, acts of terror,” said Alissa Wahid in a written statement, quoted by Hops on Friday, September 3, 2021.

Then one of the GUSDUR-ian figures questioned why this kind of brutal act was allowed in a country based on pluralism.

“Is this the period of practice like this, Pak Jokowi?,” he said.

He further regretted that a number of officers on duty, especially the police, seemed to have allowed the destruction of houses of worship to occur.

In fact, said Alissa Wahid, a number of police officers were seen around the location when the vandalism occurred.

“There was a line of police there at the time this vandalism took place. I don’t know why the destruction can be allowed,” he added.
