education about the Shariah penal code.The December 10 demonstration was originally planned for International Human Rights Day as a peaceful, silent protest. However, the 30 participants were attacked with stones, and blogger Ismail ‘Khilath’ Rasheed was taken to the hospital with head injuries.Rasheed was subsequently arrested without charges following requests from religious NGOs and ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) MP ‘Reeko’ Moosa Manik that police investigate the demonstration.Rasheed’s detention was extended a second time last week, after Reporters WithoutBorders (RSF) criticised the claim that the gathering had violated national laws, and Amnesty International declared Rasheed a prisoner of conscience.Meanwhile, Islamic Minister Dr Abdul Majeed Abdul Bari has requested the parliamentary National Security Committee to include appropriate punishments for thosewho call for religious freedom in the nation’s penal code. In discussions, he saidthe punishments available under Penal Code Article 88(a), (b) and (c) were “soft.”Bari previously ordered the Communications Authority of Maldives (CAM) to shut down Rasheed’s blog on the grounds that it contained anti-Islamic content.This weekend’s Scholars Symposium is attended by 60 scholars who are debating seven key points of contention, reports Haveeru.Points include the method for handling controversial religious issues; the formation of prayer rows between mosque pillars; alms payment; the Qunooth prayer; and the traditions of the Prophet Mohamed.According to local media, the conference is the biggest of its kind to be held in the Maldives. Originally scheduled for January it was allegedly postponed forreasons unspecified.The conference comes one week after a coalition of religious NGOs and oppositionparties rallied thousands across the country to “defend Islam”, setting off a gameof chicken with the government which has lately put the tourism industry on thechopping block.President Mohamed Nasheed attended yesterday’s opening ceremony.Religious conservative Adhaalath Party President Sheikh Imran Abdulla and several other scholars from the party are participating in the conference.Members of Adhaalath Party and Minister Bari were unavailable for comment at time of press.http://minivannews.com/society/calls-for-religious-tolerance-shocked-the-nation-chief-justice-faiz-30174---------Crowd fights Chinese police at mosque demolitionBy JOE McDONALD, Associated PressBEIJING, Jan 02, 2012, — A crowd of Muslims fought with police who demolished a mosque in China
s northwest, a police employee and a human rights group said Monday.
The violence erupted Friday in Hexi, a town in the Ningxia region, after the mosque was declared an "illegal religious place" and about 1,000 officers arrived to demolish it, the Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy said.It said 50 people were injured and more than 100 detained after several hundredmembers of China
s Muslim Hui minority tried to stop the demolition. It cited avillager as saying two people died, but said it could not confirm that.An employee who answered the phone at the town police station confirmed that officers had fought with protesters and said about 80 people were detained but denied there were any deaths.Police demolished the mosque after the clash, said the employee, who refused togive her name. She said she did not know how many people were involved or why police demolished the mosque.The Communist government closely monitors religious activity and worries that mosques and other houses of worship might become centers for anti-government agitation.The Hui are one of several Muslim minority groups in China. They include descendants of Muslim immigrants from Central Asia, members of China
s majority Han ethnicity who converted to Islam and several other groups.http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jvOyow-FXbn7Wro6DoAvho-JTrPw?docId=5e262f29065d4545a40351aaaa91eb93--------Bumper Sticker Sparks New Clash at Indonesian ChurchVento SaudaleBogor.January 02, 2012, A bumper sticker prompted members of the hard-line Islamic Reform Movement to attack several members of the GKI Yasmin church on Sunday. The bumper sticker, on the back of a church member’s car, said, “We need a friendlyIslam, not an angry Islam.”Scores of vociferous Muslims from the group known as the Islamic Reform Movement(Garis) terrorized members of the congregation who came to the church’s New Year’sEve service in Bogor, GKI Yasmin spokesman Bona Sigalingging said.Garis chairman Majudien was infuriated by the sticker and began to run after thecar. The incident led the congregation to disband and move the service to the home of one of the members.“What is the aim of that sticker being put there? That is a provocative action against us, the Muslims of Bogor,” Majudien said.Bona said that the sticker was a souvenir that was distributed by the family ofthe late former Indonesian President Abdurrahman Wahid during a commemoration ofhis death on Friday.“All guests who came, including the chairman of the Constitutional Court, the deputy religious affairs minister and other VIPs also got the same souvenir, the same sticker,” he said.
