This is the self proclaimed leader of the radical religious organisation in Indonesia. They claim they are Moslems. I personally doubted that. They are no different than thugs who shrouded themselves with religious attires. He was featured on every newspaper headlines for months because of his silly and dumb accusations, from how he found a communist symbols on the new Indonesian's money, to the hate speech, insulting the symbol of our nation and our founding father, President Soekarno.
He is currently busy with summons after summons from National Police for his past actions. The latest, the irony, a sex tape case.
The purpose of this artwork is to share my personal perspective and also to start conversation regarding this issue. I believe, we can't solve problems or achieve understanding without talking to one another. I'm definitely a voter for Ahok and I deeply wish he would be our next governor, for the works he had done. However, I also respect the fact that we have different opinions.
Art has the power to start conversation. Let's have one.
