A social media activist Permadi Arya aka Abu Janda has completed an investigation regarding the cases of hate speech and blasphemy. He seemed to give a signal that he was ready to be named a suspect in the case because he was carrying a suitcase filled with clothes.
He also said that he was ready to be detained by the police for this case.
“I am ready to be arrested,” said Abu Janda at the Police Criminal Investigation Unit, Monday, February 1. However, after being questioned, the police allowed him to return home.
Furthermore, he will have a follow-up examination in the next few days.
Abu Janda was asked to explain for about 12 hours. Dozens of questions were asked by the investigator to get information about the case.
Of the dozens of questions asked by investigators, said Abu Janda, more were about the intent and purpose of the tweets on social media.
Abu Janda’s Twitter account @ permadiaktivis1 is considered problematic. At that time he wrote that Islam was called arrogant because it had trampled on local wisdom.
“Islam is indeed the religion of immigrants from Arabic, the original Indonesian religion is Sundanese Wiwitan, Kaharingan, etc. And it is arrogant, it forbids the original tradition. If you don’t want to be called arrogant or local wisdom.”
He said, the tweet went viral and there was a misunderstanding. Abu Janda emphasized that he did not at all intend to corner the religion of Islam.
Furthermore, Abu Janda is scheduled to be investigated regarding hate speech to Natalius Pigai, on Thursday, February 4, 2021.
This case began when Abu Janda tweeted on his Twitter account, on January 2, 2021.
At that time, he commented on the debate between Pigai and Hendropriyono. “The capacity of General Hendropriyono: Former Head of BIN, Former Director of BAIS, Former Minister of Transmigration, Professor of Intelligence Philosophy, Served in various military operations. But you, Natalius Pigai, what is your capacity?” wrote Abu Janda.
Abu Janda was reported to Bareskrim Polri with Article 45 paragraph (3) Jo article 27 paragraph (3) and/or article 45 A paragraph (2) Jo article 25 paragraph (2) and/or the Law number 19 of 2016 concerning Amendments to Law Number 11 of 2006 concerning Information and Electronic Transactions, Hatred or Enmity for Individuals and/or Intergroups (SARA), Article 310 and/or Article 311 of the Criminal Code.
