The Jakarta Post
The police claim that no one has filed a criminal report following the brutal attack launched by Muslim hard-liners at the LKiS publishing office during a book launch for Canadian author Irshad Manji on Wednesday night.
“We have investigated the scene and found corroborating facts showing that there were attacks and vandalism. However, we haven’t received reports from victims, therefore we haven’t arrested anyone,” Bantul Police chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Dewi Hartati said on Thursday.
Dewi, however, was clear in calling the attack a criminal act. “Of course it was a crime – five people are being treated,” she said.
She was referring to the people, including Manji’s assistant, Emily, who were injured after hundreds of people from the Indonesian Mujahidin Council (MMI) broke down the door to the office and assaulted participants.
The mob also vandalized the publisher’s office and destroyed copies of Irshad’s books that were on sale.
A representative of the MMI said Irshad’s “liberty and lesbianism” propaganda was unrepentant about the attack, calling Manji “blasphemous” and saying that her teachings were atheist propaganda.
Meanwhile, Bambang Tedy, a leader of the Islam Defender Front (FPI) said that the hard-line group was not involved in Wednesday’s mayhem.
Gadjah Mada University cancelled a discussion involving Manji on Wednesday, citing “security reasons”.
Manji’s book discussion at the Salihara Cultural Center in Jakarta was halted just after it started on Friday night, after local police claimed that the organizers lacked a needed permit.
The Canadian author did speak at a discussion hosted by the Alliance of Independent Journalists (AJI) on Saturday in South Jakarta, under heavy guard from Banser NU, the youth wing of Indonesia’s largest Muslim organization, Nahdlatul Ulama. (swd)
