By the end of 2016, we saw the Islam Defenders Front (FPI) leading a band of religious conservatives to accuse the then Governor of Jakarta Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama of blasphemy. This movement briefly threatened the stability of the nation and emboldened the FPI to broadcast their deranged extremist views. An example of such views would be the accusation that the Central Bank had incorporated the logo of the banned communist party into the newly designed rupiah bills. The public has grown anxious to the point that calls for the disbandment of FPI emerged once more. But we have to wait for over three years of seemingly endless drama before it happens. On Dec. 30, 2020, the Government finally officially disbanded the FPI. The public rejoices, but FPI resist. We wonder what will happen after this decision. To subscribe please click here
