            [post_content] => Jakarta. Jakarta-based human rights group Setara Institute has called on the judges to acquit Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, arguing that the charge against him is politically motivated, the group said in a statement.

"The judges should rectify the actions of the police and state prosecutors by [acquitting] Ahok from the charge against him and clearing his name," Setara Institute deputy head, Bonar Tigor Naipospos, said in a statement released shortly after Ahok's court session on Thursday (20/04).

At the session, prosecutors addressed the court on sentence, suggesting that a two-year probation period is appropriate if the governor is convicted. In the event that the probation order is breached, a possible one-year jail term may be imposed, the prosecution added.

The prosecution reduced the blasphemy charge against the governor from Article 156a of the Criminal Code to Article 156, explaining that Ahok's criticism was directed at people, not the Koran. The latter carries a lighter maximum sentence and also no longer requires that the prosecution prove that Ahok "deliberately" committed the act, which would have been more difficult to prove.

Article 156 also has a wider scope, where the prosecution need only prove that the accused publicly expressed feelings of hostility, hatred or contempt against one or more groups of the population of Indonesia. In this context, a group may be distinguished by race, country of origin, religion and descent.

Ahok had been facing blasphemy charges since November last year after saying during a speech on Pramuka Island that his political rivals have been quoting verse 51 of the Koran's Al-Maidah chapter to turn people against him.

"The reduction of the charge from Article 156a [to Article 156], has bolstered the views of various legal experts, religious figures, academics and nongovernmental activists [who argue] that the elements of blasphemy are difficult to prove," Bonar said.

Bonar added that accusing Ahok of blasphemy was merely an effort to satisfy certain politically motivated interests to hamper his chances in the gubernatorial election.

"It was more a move by law enforcers to satisfy the desire of a political mob to send Ahok to prison and to remove him from the Jakarta election by stigmatizing him as a 'blasphemer,'" Bonar said in the statement.

It is clear that the prosecution missed the mark, realizing that the evidence was limited and it was an uphill battle to prove that blasphemy was committed, Bonar said.

"It's obvious that the blasphemy trial against Ahok is just a move by law enforcers to further political interests, or at least, a move to let law enforcement become an instrument catering to the interest of street mobs," he said in the statement.

"By instead using Article 156 [of the Criminal Code], the foul play [that is going on] has become so obvious, as the scope of this article is wider compared to Article 156a. The prosecution missed their target," Bonar said. Bonar also hopes that the judges will consider all factors when preparing the verdict.

The sentence demand made by prosecutors in Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama's blasphemy trial on Thursday (20/04) may be a relief for the incumbent Jakarta governor, but many are concerned about the way law enforcers in the country appear to bow to the demands of street mobs. North Jakarta District Court prosecutors demanded two years probation with a possible one-year jail term for Ahok, downgrading the charge against the embattled governor, who had been facing blasphemy charges since November last year after quoting verse 51 of the Koran's Al-Maidah chapter during a speech on Pramuka Island in Jakarta's Thousand Islands district. Police declared Ahok a suspect in November after more than 100,000 Muslims marched against the governor, who is a Christian of Chinese ethnicity. Protesters demanded Ahok's immediate arrest, but police later decided against detention as investigators had mixed views of the case and the governor was only barred from leaving the country. Thursday's sentence recommendation by prosecutors indicate that police did not follow due process in naming Ahok a blasphemy suspect, Jakarta-based human rights group, the Setara Institute, said. "It was more a move by law enforcers to satisfy the desire of a political mob to send Ahok to prison and to remove him from the Jakarta election by stigmatizing him as a 'blasphemer,'" Setara Institute deputy head Bonar Tigor Naipospos said in a statement released shortly after Thursday's court session. "It's obvious that the blasphemy trial against Ahok is just a move by law enforcers to further political interests, or at least, a move to let law enforcement become an instrument catering to the interest of street mobs," he said in the statement. Bonar said the recommendation for a lighter sentence for Ahok also indicates that there has been legal confusion among prosecutors, and that the judges should therefore dismiss all charges. "It's better to free a thousand people than convict one innocent person," Bonar said.

(Antara Photo/Rivan Awal)[/caption] Airlangga Pribadi Kusman, a lecturer in politics at Airlangga University in Surabaya, East Java, echoed Bonar Tigor's view, saying social tensions were expected to ease after the quick count results showed Ahok lost the Jakarta gubernatorial election on Wednesday. He said there was no longer any need to pursue the charges against Ahok, the capital's first ethnic Chinese governor in the post-Suharto era. "It is really obvious that there is political dimension to Ahok's blasphemy charge. Ahok-Djarot's rivals have used it as a 'political tool' to achieve their victory," Airlangga said. "Since Ahok lost the election, there would no longer be social tensions and pressure from his rivals. On the other hand, Ahok's supporters also don't seem interested in pouring more gasoline on the current situation," the lecturer said. Airlangga said the main concern in the long run is to prevent a repeat of this situation in other parts of Indonesia. "Using religion for political gain can be seen as an alternative method for them to win elections by manufacturing blasphemy issues and hoaxes, which also happened during the 2014 presidential election," he said. During Thursday's court session, prosecutors opted not to charge Ahok with Article 156a of the Criminal Code on blasphemy, explaining that his criticism was directed at people, not the Koran. Prosecutors instead charged him with transgressing Article 156, which requires them to prove that Ahok publicly expressed feelings of hostility, hatred or contempt against one or more population groups. Ahok's slip of the tongue still left him with some problems, with prosecutors demanding that "if he commits any criminal offense, not necessarily blasphemy, he will be imprisoned for a year," Ismail, a law professor at Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University Jakarta, told the Jakarta Globe.

The long, divisive campaign for governorship of Jakarta is finally over, with results showing a decisive victory for the challenger Anies Baswedan over the controversial incumbent Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama.

The election was the most politically significant regional election in Indonesia's history because it was not just about choosing the chief executive for the city's 10 million citizens.

Rather, it became a referendum on the future of Indonesia's ethno-religious diversity and tolerance after unwanted intervention by a number of radical Islamist groups, most notably the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI).

Blasphemy Campaign Against Ahok

These groups accused Ahok, a Chinese Indonesian who is Christian, of blaspheming last September by mocking a verse from the Koran that allegedly calls for Muslims to reject non-Muslims as their leaders. Ahok criticized unnamed ulema or Muslim clerics for using verse 51 of Surah Al-Maidah that advises Muslims to avoid aligning with Christians and Jews.

The FPI and its allies managed to obtain a fatwa, or religious ruling, from the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) declaring that Ahok was guilty of committing blasphemy against Islam. They then sponsored several anti-Ahok rallies in Jakarta in November, attracting approximately 2.5 million protesters.

Under pressure from these groups, the Indonesian government opened an investigation against Ahok and tried him for blasphemy. The trial was adjourned a week before the election.

Anies, a very astute politician, quickly capitalized on anti-Ahok accusations, by seeking and receiving an endorsement from FPI leader Habib Rizieq Shihab. He also started to portray himself as an "Islamic candidate" to win the support of Jakarta's Muslims, who comprise 85 percent of registered voters.

The strategy seems to have worked, as an Indo Barometer poll in February indicated more than half of Jakarta's voters would not vote for Ahok because they believed he had committed a blasphemous act against Islam.

They reached this conclusion despite a number of Islamic scholars saying that the Koranic verse in question must be seen in the context of warfare between Muslims and non-Muslims during the early Islamic period. And that it had nothing to do with how Muslims should choose their leader.

The race between the two contenders was very tight, as indicated by the reputable Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting poll, which showed Anies leading Ahok with a margin of 1 percent — 47.9 percent versus 46.9 percent  with up to 5.2 percent of voters still undecided.

The campaign took an ugly turn when an elderly woman, who had voted for Ahok during the first round and subsequently died, was denied a Muslim burial. And an Islamist activist made a Facebook post stating it would be religiously permissible for any women voting for Ahok during the runoff election to be gang raped.

Police had to tear down a number of banners placed in mosques across Jakarta discouraging their members to vote for Ahok during the runoff.

Implications of the Election Results

The election has serious implications for the future of Indonesian politics. Anies's victory means he is in a stronger position to mount a challenge against President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo in 2019, as a candidate of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra), or with another opposition party.

A young, telegenic politician who has widely touted his Islamic credentials, Anies is perceived by Jokowi as a more formidable opponent than "old guard" elite figures, such as retired Army general Prabowo Subianto and former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who are both widely expected to be contenders during the 2019 presidential election.

But more importantly, Anies's victory is another sign of the growing Islamization of Indonesian politics, which has been on the rise since the country made its democratic transition in 1998.

This phenomenon can be seen throughout Indonesian society, from the promotion of Islamist prayer groups and study circles in public university campuses throughout the country; the proliferation of Indonesian women wearing Islamic veils, or hijabs; and the rapid increase in local regulations restricting alcohol consumption and the rights of religious minorities.

There seems to be an ideological and political convergence between Islamist groups such as FPI an association of approximately 100,000 hardline Islamists with close ties to the Indonesian security apparatus  and Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia. This latter is known for its advocacy for a global caliphate.

Members of both groups are developing a close relationship with the conservative elements of the Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) and Muhammadiyah, Indonesia's two largest Muslim organisations with generally moderate political leanings. They claim membership by 60 million and 30 million people, respectively.

The MUI fatwa against Ahok was signed by Maaruf Amin, who, apart from being the council's general chairman, is also NU's supreme leader.

The groups have also cooperated to demand the implementation of Sharia regulations by local governments throughout Indonesia. And there are now 442 such regulations in place in over 100 cities and districts.

These regulations require women to wear hijab in public, prohibit the consumption of alcohol and prostitution, and declare a number of Islamic minority sects, such as Ahmadis and Shiites, to be illegal within their respective localities. The groups have also encouraged acts of violence against both minorities over the past decade or so.

Rising Islamism and the renewed prejudice against ethnic and religious minorities pose a danger to the pluralist outlook enshrined in Indonesia’s official founding principles, which are collectively known as Pancasila. Made from the Sanskrit word for "five," panca, and the Javanese for "principles," silaPancasila states: "The one God system [monotheism], just and civilized humanity, the unity of Indonesia, democracy and social justice for all."

These principles have underpinned equality for all Indonesia's ethnic and religious groups since the country's founding in 1945. Indonesian founding fathers who created Pancasila meant to give equal political and economic opportunities to all Indonesians irrespective of their ethnic and religious background.

Unlike Indonesia's neighbor Malaysia, Pancasila grants no special status to Muslims and instead gives official religions status to a number of religions – Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism. It gives them equal legal recognition and grants their members full religious freedom. Most significantly, adherents of all religions are free to run for and occupy any public office.

By creating these accusations against Ahok, the Islamists have refused to recognize the legal rights of Indonesia’s ethnic and religious minorities to run for public office. Ahok's loss means that Indonesia's ethno-religious diversity is the biggest casualty of this highly polarizing election.

Members of the Indonesian Women Against Violence reported a social media user on Monday (17/04) for a post allegedly promoting the rape of women who support incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama. In a post on Friday, Facebook user Dwi Ardika allegedly said: "Those who support Ahok are both stupid and immoral." He added that it was halal, or permissible according to Islamic law, to gang rape and kill them. Activist Ita Fadia Nadya said the group filed a police report against the Facebook user for hate speech, as defined by Article 156 of the Criminal Code Procedure Law (KUHP). "We want to raise concerns about the safety of women in general. We aren't talking about the upcoming gubernatorial election in Jakarta; our focus is purely on safety," Ita told reporters at the Jakarta Police headquarters. "Specifically, [Dwi] threatened Ahok supporters, but as women, we consider his post especially harmful to us, to our safety and to our bodies," she added. Ita said the Facebook post urges actions very similar to those that transpired during the 1998 riots, when many Chinese-Indonesian women were sexually assaulted across the archipelago because of their ethnicity and perceived religious orientation. "Before the massive gang rapes that occurred in 1998, there were sentiments and threats expressed [similar to this Facebook post]," she said. "In that period, there was no social media. Instead, threats were disseminated through posters targeting drivers of taxis and other forms of public transportation. We don't want to see the actions of that year being repeated." The group said it is not affiliated with any political parties or candidates participating in the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election on Wednesday.

Incumbent Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama inspected flooded areas in South Jakarta on Wednesday (05/04) and promised to take swift action to address the problem. During a meeting with residents of the Haji Nawi area in Cilandak, South Jakarta, Ahok said the flooding occurred after the Grogol River burst its banks following heavy rain, but that the situation was worsened by residential developments near the river, which disturb the natural flow of water. "The southern and eastern areas [of Jakarta] are most affected by the flooding. There are many cluster homes, especially in the eastern areas. [Developers are] purchasing land, building cluster homes and walls around the area, [causing] the flow of the river to be blocked. [Throwing garbage in the river] has resulted in the village being inundated. [The developers] have used their permits inappropriately. So, we have limited their permits," Ahok said. "We will do whatever is needed [to prevent further flooding]. We might make some enemies, but we must do it," he added. The governor said whenever heavy rain occurs in the area, it will be inundated by at least 80 centimeters. Ahok, who is currently on mandatory leave ahead of the second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election, said he will take serious measures to address the problem once he returns to office. He also inspected another flooded area in South Jakarta, where he called for the relocation of residents living on riverbanks. This is necessary, he had said, to allow for the continuation of the river normalization project along the banks. The affected people will be relocated to designated apartment blocks, which are currently under construction. Watch Indonesia Highlights at 8 p.m. tonight on the Jakarta Globe News Channel and Facebook Live to find out more about the river normalization project and flooding in Jakarta.

Jakarta Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Raden Prabowo Argo Yuwono said the case file against Buni Yani, the man involved in the blasphemy allegations against Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama, has been finalized. Buni is accused of having uploaded a heavily edited video of a speech Ahok made on Pramuka Island in Jakarta's Thousand Islands district last year, in which the governor said nobody should manipulate verses from the Koran for political gain. "Buni Yani's case file was declared complete by the West Java prosecutor's office a week ago," Argo said in Jakarta on Wednesday (05/04). "We will submit the second phase [of the case file] on the suspect and evidence to the West Java prosecutor's office next week," he added. Investigators from the Jakarta Police's cybercrime unit previously named Buni a suspect in alleged incitement involving race, religion, ethnicity and group affiliation. He was charged in November last year with editing and sharing the doctored video of Ahok's speech on social media. Buni faces a six-year prison term or a Rp 1 billion ($75,000) fine if found guilty of having violated the Electronic Transaction and Information Law. The former lecturer has approached the National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) and the Ombudsman for assistance.

Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama will testify for the first time in his blasphemy trial on Tuesday (04/04). The panel of judges will question him during the 17th session of the trail, which was set to commence at 9 a.m. in the auditorium of the Ministry of Agriculture in Ragunan, South Jakarta. "I only read the police investigation report; I am reviewing it. We'll see what prosecutors would ask," Ahok told reporters in Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Monday when asked about his preparations. "I had some discussions [with my lawyers] and refreshed my memory," he added. Ahok's lawyers previously called several witnesses to testify in his defense. This includes Ahmad Ishomuddin, a renowned cleric from the Nadhlatul Ulama (NU); Djisman Samosir, a lecturer at Parahyangan University's law faculty; and Rahayu Surtiati, a linguistics professor at the University of Indonesia. Ahok also presented his childhood friend Fajrun, who spoke about the governor's past and who testified that he had no intention to insult the Koran, or the religious beliefs of anyone. Ahok, who is running for re-election in the second round of this month's gubernatorial election, has repeatedly denied the blasphemy accusations against him after a heavily edited video of a speech in which he objected to the use of a Koranic verse for political gain, went viral on social media last year. The governor has been charged with blasphemy and cyber-harassment.

Incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama said he has been committed to the principals of open governance, slamming his rival, Anies Baswedan, who questioned his administration's performance on implementing such policies. Ahok said his administration has implemented various measures to ensure public transparency, including the open data policy for residents to access information about governance in the capital. All meetings on public policy were also uploaded to the popular video-sharing platform YouTube to ensure greater transparency. The incumbent governor said citizen participation in the capital was considerably higher, as is evident from numerous reports on the Jakarta administration's official online platform for development planning, e-Musrenbang. "We have implemented open governance policies. For example, we found out about alleged corrupt practices in the procurement of uninterruptable power supplies through Jakarta's e-budgeting platform. Where did the e-budgeting data come from? From e-Musrenbang," Ahok said on Monday (27/03). The governor said he has received tens of thousands of reports from the public about various issues in his administration. "The platform records the number of reports that have been processed and those that have been rejected. I don't understand why our open governance policies were said to [not involve Jakarta residents]. We are implementing open data policies. If we don't involve residents, how would e-Musrenbang get its data? We have received around 29,000 inputs. We even involve residents in the building of integrated public spaces. I just don't get it," Ahok added. He explained further that public reports to e-Musrenbang are always fluctuating, because a different application, Qlue, is designed to resolve smaller issues within communities. Officials in Jakarta – especially freelancers such as public facilities maintenance officers – may act directly on daily reports submitted received through the Qlue app. Good Governance Meanwhile, acting Jakarta Governor Sumarsono said Anies should not only be concerned with open governance, but good governance. He explained that transparency – or what Anies called open governance – was just one component of good governance. "Let me get this straight; it should be good governance, not open governance. Good governance has 10 principals. The top three are accountability, transparency and participation, Sumarsono said on Monday, as quoted by Detik.com. He added that Jakarta is currently the city with the highest level of transparency in Indonesia. This can be seen from the easy access the public enjoy to oversee activities within the administration. Jakarta residents will head to the polls again on April 19 to cast their ballots in the second round of the gubernatorial election.

Incumbent Jakarta Deputy Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat says he prefers to meet his constituents away from the glare of publicity. "Mr. Ahok and I prefer to go into the field quietly. We do not want any publicity. Especially for me personally; I have been like this for a long time," Djarot said, referring to his running mate, Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, by his popular nickname. Speaking in East Jakarta on Monday (27/03), Djarot explained that he and Ahok get more honest public feedback on their programs when the media is not present, because people feel more at ease to raise complaints without having to worry about media exposure. "It is not just campaigning, but more about checking on the various programs we have implemented; whether they are running properly [or not]. If the media exposes everything [we do], and more people show up [for our neighborhood visits], it becomes ineffective," Djarot said. Scores of people usually flock around Ahok and Djarot to take photos and shake their hands, but this leaves the gubernatorial candidates with fewer opportunities to gauge public opinion or hear people's concerns. "Our aims are not achieved with photo shoots, handshakes and others. This is why we are focusing on [impromptu visits]. We are not just informing the public about our programs, but also checking whether they are received well or not by the public," Djarot said Ahok and Djarot have also campaigned on social media through the newly established "Ahok Show," hosted by Sarah Sechan, a public figure and presenter. The show is intended to reach younger voters. "The Ahok Show is good. It is better, since it fits the style of the youngsters, to appear as he is. Mr. Ahok also has a talent for standup comedy; it is good," Djarot said jokingly. The incumbent pair is currying favor with voters to bolster their chances of winning next month's second round of the Jakarta gubernatorial election against former education minister Anies Baswedan and his running mate, businessman Sandiaga Uno.
