Meanwhile, National Police Criminal Investigation Unit (Bareskrim) rescheduled examination against Habib Bahar related to alleged hate speech and insult to President Joko Widodo (Jokowi). Habib Bahar failed to meet the summon scheduled on Monday (Dec 3).

“I confirmed that it will not be done today,” said National Police spokesman Syahar on Monday.

Habib Bahar was scheduled to be questioned as witness at 9.00 WIB (Indonesia West Standard Time) today. However, he did not come until afternoon.

According to Syahar, police is still confirming the reason behind Habib Bahar absence. He stressed that he did not know when the next summon will be done.

In one of his lectures back in 2016, Habib Bahar allegedly spreaded hate speech against Jokowi. He said Jokowi as a traitor of the country and the people as the president did not respond to the ulemas request to meet during 411 rally on November 4, 2016.

The 411 rally was known as the Second Action to Defend Islam to call for the prosecution of then-Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok for blasphemy. Jokowi left the Palace and continued his agenda to review airport train railways project.

“If you meet Jokowi, you can open his pants, maybe he has menstruation because he seems like a sissy,” Habib Bahar said.

As a respond of his lecture, Habib Bahar was reported to National Police by Jokowi Mania Secretary General. In addition, the report also came from Cyber Indonesia Muannas Aladid to Jakarta Police.

“This is not a good criticism or lecture, if he wants to protest, please but don’t harass like that. It’s inappropriate for a person who called as habib or ulema,” said Muannas.
