A week into Ramadhan, authorities of Depok city in West Java reportedly sealed on late Saturday a mosque belonging to an Ahmadiyah congregation, a minority Muslim group that has long been persecuted for its beliefs.
Ahmadiyah spokesman Yendra Budiana said in a press release that Depok Mayor Mohammad Idris and a number of police and Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) officers went to the Al-Hidayah Mosque in Sawangan, Depok to ensure the mosque had not been used for worship activities.
“The mayor had the police confiscate the mosque’s CCTV recordings to prove that there had been activity in the mosque recently,” said Yendra. “The mayor also reported Depok’s Ahmadiyah congregation to the police for using the mosque as a place of worship.”
