Indonesia: Groups to report ‘new prophet’ to police

BANDUNG: The Muslim Alliance (Alumi) of West Java said it will file a report with the National Police on Monday against sect leader Ahmad Musadek because he has claimed himself a prophet replacing Prophet Muhammad.

“We have entrusted the Muslim Lawyers Team to file the report,” Ikhsan Setiadi Latief, the alliance secretary general told detik.com Saturday.

“Hopefully, this legal action can deter other heretical groups as well.”

He claimed he was a prophet after 40 days of meditation.
