FPI Report Gramedia to Polda Metro




Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) reports the management of a publishing company PT. Gramedia to the Metro Jaya Regional Police, related to the issue of publishing a book entitled "5 Most Influential Cities in the World" whose contents tarnish Islam.

"There is a sentence that says the Prophet Muhammad became a robber and pirate, then invaded the caliph (leader)," FPI spokesman Munarman said at the Metro Jaya Police Headquarters on Monday.

Munarman said that Douglas James Wilson's book contains words that insult the Prophet Muhammad as a symbol of the teachings of Islam listed on page 24.

Munarman stated editorially on page 48 of the book entitled "The 5 Most Influential Cities in the World" which was included in the category of blasphemy under the Criminal Code (KUHP).

The FPI activist hopes the police will immediately follow up on reports of alleged blasphemy, by examining writers, editors, publishers and parties involved in the production of the book.

Munarman added that the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) had also asked the publishers to withdraw the book.
The reporting party complained about the publisher of PT Gramedia's book with Article 156 letter a juncto Article 157 and Article 484 of the Criminal Code.
