KBR, Jakarta- A number of groups in Depok, West Java plans to shutdown all Ahmadiyah activities in Sawangan permanently.

Action will be conducted tomorrow (24/02) after Friday prayers until 16:00 pm, it was reported.

This agitation action was announced after Civil Service Police Unit of Depok sealed an Ahmadiyya mosque today (23/02).

Citizens of District Sawangan, Bojongsari and surrounding areas are being invited through information posted in social media, to engage in anti-Ahamdiyya action. They were asked to use identifiable marker to show their participation.

Proponent of the action, using the label "Protest 242", asked participants to not carry weapons. The group plan to start action from a location approximately 500 meters from the now sealed Ahmadiyya mosque.

Sealing of the Sawangan Ahmadiyya mosque, carried out by municipal police with assistance from the military, was reportedly done because local residents and clerics complained that the Ahmadiyya worship activity is considered disturbing.
