Christmas Revival Event in West Java shut down by Muslims Christmas Revival Event in West Java shut down by Muslims

(Voice of the Persecuted)  On Tuesday, VOP began receiving reports regarding a Christmas Celebration Revival Service led by Rev. Stephen Tong at a popular event venue in Bandung, West Java. The service was disbanded after members of two Muslim organizations, the Pembela Ahlu Sunnah (PAS) and Dewan Dakwah Islam (DDI) stormed the event.

Bandung Police spokesman, Commissioner, Reny Marthaliana issued a statement which claimed “the event had been rejected by the two Muslim groups who argued that Christian meetings were illegal in a public space and should only take place in church buildings.

West Java police said technical difficulties and an incomplete permit for the event was the reason behind the aggression. But VOP was informed that the Reformed Injili Indonesia Church had obtained legal permission and all permit requirements to hold the services had been fulfilled, including submitting notifications to the government and police.
