Jakarta Gov. Basuki Tjahaja Purnama found guilty in Islam blasphemy trial - UPI.com
UPI reports: "An Indonesian court found the outgoing Chinese Christian governor of
Jakarta guilty of blasphemy Tuesday and sentenced him to two years in
Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as Ahok, was accused of insulting
Islam by referring to a verse in the Koran during a campaign speech last
Ahok said candidates running against him were lying when they claimed
the Koran says Muslims should not vote for non-Muslims to rule them."
Comment: I have to salute the bravery of this man for daring to be a public servant and run for office as a Christian in the world's most populous Muslim country. It was a test of legal pluralism vs. cultural intolerance...guess which won.
