Last Thursday, Jakarta was temporarily shocked by a gun and bomb attack in Sarinah area. At least eight people, four attackers and four civilians, were killed and 23 others were injured. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has claimed responsibility for the attack. The people of Jakarta, shown in the social media buzz, reacted by denouncing the attack with #KamiTidakTakut hashtag (we are not afraid) and peace rallies around the area. In a lighter note and to the amazement of many, the focus was quickly drawn into how little the people of the city was affected with the act of terrorism.
