Reason Why Court Against Ahok In Indonesia Is Useless

This afternoon I traveled to a Kuningan's tavern. Kuningan's tavern are stalls in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, that provide food and drinks which are easily made and served. Usually, the traders coming from Kuningan, a district in West Java of Indonesia. There are indeed coming from other places, also usually in West Java, but it was mostly from the District of Kuningan. you will have it when you travel to Indonesia, specially in Indonesia. Previously, they only sell "burjo" or pureed green beans. However, over the time, they provide dishes that we often encounter at home. Burjo was no longer sold there, not only because of this coconut milked porridge is so easy to be rotten, but it is also not a lot of customers as well.

As usually in such stalls, it has also contained a television set. The shop owner noticed broadcasts carefully and attentively. Several times I saw him stood up to increase the volume. The television station was apparently broadcast a live event from Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. If you travel to Indonesia nowadays, you will see this commotion, precisely in Jakarta District Court. The case was indeed a concern across the country lately. Which presupposed the blasphemy case against Tjahaya Basuki Purnama alias Ahok. Incumbent governor who served as Governor / Head of the DKI Jakarta's Province.

I do not want to talk about it from a political point. I was almost totally do not understand politics, because it's useless for me to comment. I want to comment lightly. Something that is easy to reach by my simple wits. I can not hide my symphathy onto Ahok, though I myself am a Muslim. I do not see the abuse as alleged done by Ahok by many parties. Indeed, it is a matter of viewpoint as well.

I'm sure that whether Ahok aka Basuki Purnama Tjahaya was declared guilty of blasphemy by the Central Jakarta District Court, then indeed it is adequate political burden. Ahok only a shooting target of politicians who want to fulfill his desire to power. It will often you be encountered if you travel to Indonesia these day, especially after the reforms of 1998.It was said by my friend who studied in Social and Political Science Faculty, politics is about who gets what and where. It's ends related to economic issues as well, meaning that what is gained by the politicians. Not just only the prosperous, but the desire to implement his needs to authoritative.
