Islamic Group Demonstrate Against Kompas
Monday, 26 June, 2006 | 16:51 WIB

Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: Around 300 members of the Anti-secularism and Anti-Kompas Alliance (GASAK) Islamic Group protested at the Kompas editorial office in Jalan Palmerah Selatan, West Jakarta yesterday (25/6).

They are demanding that Kompas not publish news that puts Moslems into a corner.

An example of news which is considered of putting Moslems in a corner is Kompas’ coverage of the Draft Bill of Anti-Pornography and Pornographic Acts.

Kompas has sided with those who reject the draft bill,” said Fadloli El Munir, Chief of the Betawi Rempug Forum (FBR), after a meeting with Suryopratomo, Kompas' editor in-chief.

At around 11 am, the protesters’ representatives met with Kompas' editor in-chief and several editorial staff.

During the meeting, GASAK presented that one of which reminded Kompas to return to the agreement made between Kompas and the Islamic Defenders Team on September 20, 1997.

GASAK consists of 80 mass organizations including the Islamic Defenders Front, the Betawi Rempug Forum, Islam Missionaries, Majelis Ulama Indonesia and Islam Defenders Team.

They held their protest from 1030am to 1230pm.

That's kind of odd, why would this group of deranged terrorist wannabes and thugs-for-hire name their group after the Grandparent Advocates Supporting Autistic Kids (GASAK)????

These fellas get wierder by the minute, what will they think of next?

Kompas certainly has its problems, like cheap govt propaganda, but this pro-porn stance is one of their few good things.

Agree....just let we think this more racionalist and wide open our heart and mine, this country not a religion country and we lived ina so many different kind of faith, principles, culture etc....don't force for what one side interests example pro-porn bill....it selfish, there lots of important matters need to take care.
