ACCURATE.CO, Indonesia Police Watch (IPW) urged the National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo to remove the Sintang Police Chief AKBP Ventie Bernard Musak for failing to provide protection and security to residents.

The pressure was conveyed by IPW in the aftermath of the destruction and burning of buildings and mosques belonging to the Indonesian Ahmadiyah Congregation (JAI) in Balai Gana Village, Temunuk District, Sintang Regency, West Kalimantan, by a group of intolerant people on Friday afternoon.

“Even before the destruction occurred, the West Kalimantan Police had dispatched officers to the location. However, the officers in the field failed to provide protection. Therefore, the Sintang Police Chief as the highest command in the area must be removed,” said the Chairman of Indonesia Police Watch, Sugeng Teguh Santoso, via an electronic message. which he broadcast, Saturday (4/9/2021).

Sugeng said the incident had tarnished the image of the Police in society. The National Police as law enforcement officials who are ready to protect, protect and serve the community and uphold human rights have been injured by Ventie Bernard’s omission.

The destruction and burning of buildings and mosques belonging to the Ahmadiyya Congregation in Balaigana Sintang was carried out by more than 100 people from the crowd in the name of the Islamic Ummah Alliance.

However, according to Sugeng, the incident was an accumulation of previous actions that the Sintang Police Chief should have anticipated.

The acts of violence by intolerant groups were triggered by the attitude of the Sintang Regency Government which on August 14 sealed the mosque, and continued on August 27 to issue a letter prohibiting activities.

“The series of acts of discrimination, persecution and destruction by intolerant groups in Sintang are violations of the law that must be dealt with indiscriminately,” said Sugeng.

Sugeng emphasized that the authorities must provide protection to the members of the Ahmadiyya Community. The prohibition against violence and destruction of houses of worship for the Ahmadiyah congregation has been confirmed in the Joint Decree (SKB) of the Minister of Religion, the Attorney General, and the Minister of Home Affairs in 2008 concerning Ahmadiyah.

In addition to the Chief of Police having to remove the Sintang Police Chief, IPW urged the West Kalimantan Police Chief Inspector General Sigit Tri Harjanto to take over and strengthen his stance to protect Sintang residents in practicing their religious beliefs and to prevent acts of violence and destruction of places of worship.
