Mosque torched in Indonesia

Reading time 2 min.

Early this morning hundreds of protesters torched a mosque in West Java, Indonesia, according to The Jakarta Post. Around three hundred people set fire to the mosque run by the Ahmadiyah sect considered “heretical” for some Muslims. The fire destroyed the mosque and damaged a nearby school but no injuries were accounted for. Ahmadiyah, believed to have 200,000 followers in Indonesia, has also faced persecution in other Muslim countries. Its followers insist it should be considered as part of Islam. (JP)
