Blocking Fitna, Banning Youtube?
Certainly not. The government of Indonesia (GOI) via the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, should not block Youtube and other similar net services just because to prevent Muslims in Indonesia being fooled by Wilders’ Fitna movie. The movie should be condemned since it was just based on Wilders’ ‘freedom of anarchy’ (not speech) to merely gain his party’s popularity in the Netherlands at the expense of Islam.
GOI i.e. Yudhoyono should exert its diplomacy actively against such defamation conduct to show that Muslims in Indonesia objected Wilders’ extremism. Wilders has done the damage. But it turns out that he chose the vague way. Unclearly objecting it, he instead urged Muslims in Indonesia to calm down and, this is the latest from, via the Ministry to blocking any sites with Fitna content. Youtube is then banned in Indonesia. The President should act more smartly.
