An Indonesian university lecturer receives death threats after he took his Muslim students on a trip to a church.
According to details, an Indonesian university lecturer from Banda Aceh has received death threats after he took his Muslim students on a trip to a church. The threats began after Rosnida Sari, who teaches in the Faculty of Mission Work and Communication at the University of Ar-Raniry, posted an article about the trip a website. The trip in November 2014 was to a Protestant church in Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam province.In her article, Sari said the trip was aimed at building “a bridge of peace” between Muslims and Christians.
A pastor at the church, Reverend Domidoyo Ratupenu, recalls that at least 17 Muslim students came to his church in early November, 2014. “Miss Rosnida asked me to explain [to them] about the position of women according to the Holy Bible. Then I explained it. There was also a question-answer session,” he said. “That’s not Christianization. It’s merely about knowledge,” he remarked, adding that a number of Muslim students have come to his church in the past.
