JAKARTA, Indonesia – Acting Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama said Monday (November 10th) he will file an official letter with the Law and Human Rights Ministry recommending the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) be disbanded, local media reported.
Thousands of FPI members again protested Ahok's scheduled inauguration outside City Hall on Monday, The Jakarta Post reported.
Ahok said the demonstration violated the Constitution because the FPI objects on grounds he is Christian. He added that FPI's intolerance embarrasses Islam and goes against the inclusive principles he learned while attending Islamic school.
National Police deputy chief Badrodin Haiti said Tuesday they would provide data on FPI's violations to Ahok.
