    If even a Governor can be prosecuted under such blasphemy laws, then common people are doomed.They would have no chance of defending themselves against such Blasphemy accusation.

    One way to continue as a third world country is to have blasphemy laws.

    Poor Indonesia once a tolerant liberal society now turned into a mess by the imported Mullas of Pakistan and Saudia.

    So out of:

    1. China and Asia Pacific;
    2. South Asia & SAARC; and
    3. Greater Asia & Middle East.

    which does it go in?

    Not Middle East, not Pacific and nearer Australia than China.

    Almost half of Indonesia is Islamized. Soon it would become a theocrazy. Then USA and west will invade and devastate Indonesia like Iraq and Syria. Too much religion kills logic. Without logic, you are just like an animal to be exploited.

    Technically, Indonesia is in SE Asia. But since a section dedicated for SE Asian news isn't available, the South Asia section was indeed the best place to put this news.

    I should be forgiving you for adding 5 useless posts to the thread.

    We gonna stop this now or what?
