Depok Ahmadiyya Community, a chapter of the Indonesia Ahmadiyya Community (JAI) will take legal action for the forced closure of Depok Al-Hidayah Mosque which took place on Saturday and Sunday, June 3-4, in the morning.

"We are going to take legal action, it seems to be the forcible sealing for the seventh time," Kandali said.

He said community was deeply concerned about the incident in the midst of a consolidated effort to respect diversity on the anniversary of Pancasila, but on the other side there is still discrimination against the children of the nation in their own place of worship. "What is wrong with us? Don't we have the rright to build a mosque? Why is it sealed? Here, there is still discrimination against the nation's children," said Kandali, Sunday (06/04/2017).
