TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Cyber Indonesia has filed an official police report against the National Mandate Party (PAN) senior politician Amien Rais for his statement on 'God's Party' and 'Satan's Party'.
Cyber Indonesia's Chairman Muannas Alaidid argued that Amien's statement is considered to be a form of hate speech related to ethnic, religious, racial or social group affiliation (SARA) issues.
"Yes, we will file an official police report," said Muannas on Sunday, April 15, 2018.
Amien Rais' statement that is considered to be a form of hate speech was; "The people that are anti-God automatically join a major party, which is Satan's Party. But in other places, people with faith joining a major Party is Hizbullah, Allah's Party that favors struggle and glory," said Amien in his sermon at a mosque.
Cyber Indonesia leader Aulia Fahmi said that the statement is considered to be harmful and can potentially spark a public discord.
"Especially since it is delivered by a public figure," Aulia said.
Aulia added that Amien's statement has violated Article 28 (2) on Information and Electronic Transactions Law (UU ITE).
