REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Reports of blasphemy allegedly committed by Sukmawati Soekarnoputri kept on rolling. A number of mass alliances reported her to National Police Criminal Investigation Unit (Bareskrim Polri) on Wednesday (April 4).

Azam Khan was one of the complainants. He represented the Children's Alliance of Nations (AAB) and a number of student organizations who came with him. All the reports were same related to controversial poetry that was read by Sukmawati.

"I think it was clear that Sukmawati's poem has compared Islamic Sharia and it is a blasphemy," said Azam on Wednesday (April 4).

Azam admitted the report to police was in order to make people not easily defame religion. He assessed Sukmawati's case maybe only a simple case, but the implication of carrying Muslim make it dangerous.

Azam added that his party would open forgiveness for Sukmawati if she would clarify and apologize to Muslim. The report that was made will also be revoked.

"Insya Allah (Gods will) Muslim will accept her apology over the controversial poem, but if there is no good intention, the legal process must run," Azam added.

Earlier, lawyer Denny Andrian Kusdayat, Hanura Party politician Amron Asyhari, and Islamic Defender Association also made reports to Jakarta Police over Sukmawati's controversial poem. Indonesia Islamic Student Movement's (GMII) Legal Aid Agency also has made the same report.

After those reports, a group that called themselves as Alumni 212 also was said to report Sukmawati. Meanwhile, United Islamic Forum (FUIB) will file a police report against Sukmawati on Thursday (April 5).

Sukmawati read her poem on the commemoration of Anne Avantie's journey as kebaya (Javanese blouse) designer during Indonesia Fashion Week 2018 event at Jakarta Convention Centre. In the first line of her poem, she wrote "I did not understand about Islamic Sharia".

Then she also said that women with bun were prettier than women with veil. Sukmawati also mentioned about the sound of Indonesian mothers hymn that is more melodious than azan (call to prayer). The poetry was widely criticized as it was considered provoking about SARA (ethnicity, religion, and race).
