KIBLAT.NET – Jakarta, Responding to the Public Prosecutor (JPU)’s charges against Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, who gave a one-year prison sentence with two-year probation in a blasphemy case, the Secretary of Youth Wing of Muhammadiyah (PP Muhammadiyah) Pedri Kasman expresses his disappointment.

In fact he intended to sue the president for the charges allegedly related to power and politics. Pedri assumed that prosecutors have been intervened by power or other forces on a massive scale. This caused the prosecutor appear not independent and as if he were Ahok’s defender. “The prosecutor as a state attorney is not independent,” he said in Jakarta as reported by netralnews, Thursday (04/20/2017).

Pedri upsetly said that the 19-time hearing was a waste. All the deployed energies of the nations, the police, the army, the prosecutor, and the judiciary, all become wasteful because of the prosecutors’ stance that are not independent and indicated to be interfered by forces outside the law.

According to him, the prosecutor weakened the evidence and testimony of witnesses that they presented themselves. Indonesia deserves to be said of emergency of law enforcement because the law has been intervened by political power, material power, and others. “Today’s trial is slapstick, a play which is very sickening,” he cried fiercely. “If the law is not enforced in this country, it is very possible for the public to seek justice with their own way,” continued Pedri.

Interview with Nouman Ali Khan

If you are from the youth that are suffering from fluctuating faith take a good look at what you do in your solitude, who your friends are and what your day amounts to. Where do your eyes wander? What is filling your ears? Spiritually intoxicating intake is destroying your chances at appreciating faith. There will come a time when your heart will be completely incapable of spiritual replenishment and even the mention of Allah, the afterlife or the Prophet SAW will agitate you. Allah changes the hearts but at the very least you need to change your environment.
