Islamic Council Condemns Bali Bombers

Respected Leaders and Religious Figures call for Calm and Positive Action to Assist Victims of Bombing Attack.

(10/17/2005) In a joint meeting in the week following the latest Bali bombing held between the Bali branch of the Indonesia Ulamas Council (MUI), prominent community figures, and representatives of various Islamic political parties the actions of those suspected to have acted as suicide bombers were unanimously condemned with the meeting's participants extending their heartfelt condolences to those who have suffered as the results of October 1, 2005, bombing attacks.

Reflecting sentiments expressed by virtually all religious groupings throughout Indonesia, a statement signed by MUI Bali President, Haji Hasan Ali, and MUI secretary, Sigit Sunaryanto, called on Indonesia’s security forces and the government to swiftly bring the culprits responsible for the latest bombing to justice and impose the harshest penalties provided under the law.

In issuing the statement, the local Islamic leaders urged the people of Bali, in particular Muslims, to remain calm and not to be provoked by those who wish to fracture the prevailing peace in Balinese society. The MUI also called upon Islamic leaders and religious groups in Bali to set up crisis centers to assist the victims and their families of the October 1st bombings.
