The number 212 refers to the December 2, 2016 anti-Ahok rally, one of the rallies staged by the hardline Muslim groups associated in the National Movement for Guarding the Indonesian Ulema Council Fatwa (GNPF-MUI). So it looks obvious that Prabowo-Sandi is still trying to keep Islam politics in play. But will it work this time?
