March 25, 2014

In the West Java region of Indonesia, Islamic militants have pressured a court to revoke the building permit for a Catholic church, the AsiaNews service reports.

With militants in the courtroom demanding action, the court’s president said that the permit for St. Stanislaus Kostka church would be revoked in order to avoid “sectarian violence.” The pastor, Father Rudianto, told AsiaNews that the Catholic community had complied with all the terms of the building permit, but Islamic militants had stirred up tensions.
