‘Thousands of Indonesians Rally Against Racial, Religious Intolerance’

Thousands of Indonesians have held a peaceful rally to promote unity, amid concerns over growing signs of racial and religious intolerance. Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim-majority country.

Religious leaders, lawmakers and others marched along a central street in Jakarta, calling for unity in diversity. This rally comes a week after more than 100,000 Muslims protested against the city’s governor, Basuki Purnama, for insulting Koran. Police are investigating a blasphemy complaint against him by Muslim groups.
