FPI raids, seals homes in Bandung



Hardliners from three Muslim organizations raided and sealed homes belonging to Christians in Rancaekek, Bandung, on Sunday. The vigilantes claimed the homes were being used as churches.

Some 200 to 300 supporters of the Islam Defender Front (FPI), the Islamic Peoples Forum (FUI), and the Islamic Reform Movement (Garis), along with local public order officers initiated the raid at 9 a.m, kompas.com reported.

Seven homes were sealed and Christians were instructed to hold prayers in a proper church.

Local Christians canceled their prayers because of the incidents. There were no clashes between Christians and Muslims.
