Facebook has banned this story, blocked and removed it. Why? because it shows Islam in an unfavorable light. We must be freed of Facebook’s Islamic enforcement. We need government intervention.
The BBC article demonizes corporations that have cleared rain forests for palm oil, but passes no judgment on Muslim groups forcing these poor human beings into the most extreme and radical ideology on the face of the earth. The BBC says nothing about a religion that commands such inhumanity.
Imagine what Islam will do to these free little girls.
Indonesia’s Orang Rimba: Forced to renounce their faithThe Sumatran rainforests of Indonesia are home to the Orang Rimba – the people of the jungle. Their faith and nomadic way of life are not recognised by the state and, as their forests are destroyed to make way for palm oil plantations, many are being forced to convert to Islam to survive.
In a wooden hut on stilts, a group of children dressed in white sit on the floor. They sing “I will protect Islam till I die” and shout “There is no god but Allah”, in unison.
Three months ago, the 58 families that make up the Celitai tribe of Orang Rimba converted to Islam.
They were picked up and bussed into Jambi, the nearest city, and given clothes and prayer mats.
The Islamic Defenders Front – a vigilante group whose leader is facing charges of inciting religious violence – helped facilitate the conversion.
Ustad Reyhan, from the Islamic missionary group Hidayatullah, has stayed to make sure the new faith is practised.
“For now we are focusing on the children. It’s easier to convert them – their mind isn’t filled with other things. With the older ones it’s harder,” he says.
“Before Islam they just believed in spirits, gods and goddesses, not the supreme god Allah.
“When someone died, they didn’t even bury the dead, they just would leave the body in the forest. Now their life has meaning and direction.
“[Before] they lived in the forest. They just lived for each day, each moment. When they died, they died. But now they have a religion, they know there is an afterlife.”
But village leader Muhammad Yusuf – Yuguk, to use his Orang Rimba name – was thinking about surviving in this life when he converted.
“It was a very heavy and difficult decision, but we feel like we have no choice, if we want to move forward,” he says quietly.
“So that our children can have the same opportunities as the outsiders, the people of the light, we had no other choice. We had to all convert to Islam.”
