More than 10,000 Muslims from different hard-line organizations staged a rally at Istiqlal Mosque in Central Jakarta after Friday prayers on Oct. 14 to demand the death penalty for Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama.
The Protestant governor, popularly known as \"Ahok,\" had committed religious defamation, according to the protesters.
\"We come here to uphold the greatness of Alla and to defend the Quran,\" Muhammad Rizieq Shihab, patron of the Islamic Defenders Front, said in a speech to the crowd.
