Ahok wrote his support through a letter spread on social media. The letter dated July 24, 2018, was written and signed by Ahok at the Mako Brimob Detention Center, Kelapa Dua, Depok, who is serving 2 years in prison over blasphemy case.

“Keep fighting for Pak Jokowi to run for the 2nd term. Regards, BTP,” Ahok wrote. The letter was sent to the president’s supporter  joined in Galang Kemajuan Jokowi (GKJO)

Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Chairman, Ma'ruf Amin, was one of the expert witnesses that incriminated Ahok in his blasphemy case. MUI also issued a fatwa (edict) on Ahok’s statement about the Quran's Al-Maidah verse 51 in the Seribu Islands.
