From the heated political world, the firebrand cleric Rizieq Syihab is now suspect in pornography case, and many predict that this will be an interesting trial as some extremists and hard line Islamic organization is calling this ‘an attack on Islam’, something that perhaps can only be justified by them, as the most of us don’t share their values. Rizieq himself is yet to be back in Indonesia as he has spent the last few weeks in Saudi Arabia, it is only a matter of time before the police issue a ‘Red Notice’ in an effort to cooperate with Interpol in bringing the man to justice. Although that we quietly hope it doesn’t have to come too that. But we believe justice will be served, and things sure are looking that way. Be patient and keep doing good to one another, in the meantime, you know where to get your fix, right ? check our guide and directory sections for all the coolest new places!
