Islamic law forbids dhimmis to “display openly” wine or pork. Evidently these pigs were a bit too openly displayed for the local Muslims — and of course local authorities do nothing. Note also that the dhimmis at AP put the blame for tensions between Christians and Muslims there entirely upon the Christians — in part for the crime of building new churches, which is another violation of the laws of dhimmitude.

JAKARTA, Indonesia – Muslims armed with machetes attacked several pig farms in Indonesia, slaughtering around 20 swine they claimed were giving of “offensive” odors, The Jakarta Post reported Thursday.
Police did nothing to stop the attack Wednesday in South Tatura, central Sulawesi province, the paper reported. The farms belonged to local Christians.
“The farms give out a bad odor and this is offensive, especially during Ramadan,” said local Muslim leader Abdul Haris, referring to the Islamic fasting month where religious feelings often run high.
He said the farms were also polluting a local river, presumably with dung from the animals….
The Muslims were armed with machetes and sticks, the Post reported. Losses from the attacks were estimated at around $8,000, the paper quoted a pig farmer as saying….
The two faiths generally live in harmony, but disputes are sometimes triggered over the building of new churches and accusations that Christians are aggressively trying to convert Muslims.
