Imam Attacked Delivering Antiviolence Sermon During Friday Prayers
An imam preaching against violence in Aceh was attacked and beaten as he delivered his sermon during Friday prayers, a report said.
Saiful Bahri was speaking out against election violence allegedly committed by local politicians and former members of the disbanded Free Aceh Movement (GAM) in Pidie, AcehKita reported.
“Elections make us kill people, shoot people,” he told the congregation in the Keumala Grand Mosque in Indrajaya subdistrict. “God will not forgive you for killing people unless you seek forgiveness from the victims’ families,” he said.
The topic angered one member of the congregation, who stood up and demanded Saiful end his sermon, the news agency reported.
“Get off the podium! Don’t campaign here,” said the man, later identified as a former GAM member.
Saiful said he would end his sermon but as he did so, a number of other congregation members rose and the situation deteriorated.
In the midst of the chaos, an unidentified man approached the preacher and attacked him.
Two security officers attempted to rescue the imam but were helpless to do so as a mob had formed and had started to beat and kick the preacher.
AcehKita reported that a bleeding Saiful was eventually rescued but gave no word on his condition.
