Skalanews - Vice Chairman and Legislation-Invitation of Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) Ikhsan Abdullah said that some of the actions taken by Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) supporters have been radical.

According to Ikhsan, as the defendant, Ahok has actually shown good legal behavior towards the court's decision to accept and conduct resistance according to the corridor.

"Ahok as we seen here, we see he is a good example in order to obey the law, we see how the 22 trials all attended by him and without being absent, who can not attend is the judge at the other day, it shows how high the legal culture built that is shown by Mr. Ahok as the defendant at that time," said Ikhsan in the dialogue 'Dramaturgi Ahok' in Cikini, Central Jakarta, Saturday (13/5).

But ironically, Ahok's supporters are overreacting in rejecting a two-year sentence imposed by North Jakarta District Court. It's like staging action in various places.
