Muslims in Indonesia have offered to guard churches in their country and prevent any attack during the Christmas service as Christians around the world celebrate Christmas,
This is coming as Christians, especially in Islamic nations have heightened security alert following the threats of attacks and the bombing of a Methodist Church in Pakistan.
You also recall, U.S. President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. As a resuly, security and threats of attacks reached a precarious state.
There were several meetings of Islamic countries and groups and some of these groups have threatened to visit mayhem on the World.
However, it is not so for Muslims in Indonesia who have vowed to provide security for their “brothers” who are celebrating Christmas.
The Muslim volunteers in Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority country, are already on standby to provide additional security if requested.
“If our brother and sisters who celebrate Christmas need … to maintain their security to worship, we will help,” said Yaqut Chiolil Qoumas, chairman of the youth wing of the Nahdlatul Ulema, one of the country’s biggest Muslim organizations.
Indonesia suffered a Christmas attack in year 2000 when over 20 persons were killed. The country has now stepped up security to forestall any recurrence.
Christmas church services and other celebrations are being held this weekend under the gaze of armed guards and security cameras in many countries.
Majority-Muslim countries in Asia and the Middle East were particularly nervous after U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent announcement, a decision that has left many Muslims outraged.
