Another reason to regard Muslim condemnations of terrorism coming in the wake of the London bombing with at least a measure of suspicion. From AAP, with thanks to Twostellas:
Police have detained a member of one of Indonesia’s largest moderate Muslim groups, accusing him of helping the alleged mastermind of the Bali bombings and other terror attacks to evade arrest.
Police said they were questioning a supporter of the 30-million strong Muhammadiyah, the first such arrest among the moderate but increasingly conservative organisation, which runs schools, orphanages and hospitals across Indonesia.
His detention underscores fears that radicals may be spreading their influence with mainstream Islamic groups in Indonesia.
The activist, named Joni Achmad Fauzani, was detained in a police sweep last week.
According to intelligence, he helped Jemaah Islamiah master bombmaker and academic Azahari bin Husin hide out in an orphanage he helped run for eight days last month.
Azahari, who is accused of overseeing construction of the deadly Bali and Marriott Hotel bombs, which together killed 214 people, has been on the run from police along with fellow Malaysian and JI suicide bomb recruiter Noordin Top for more than two years.
The pair allegedly planned and carried out last year’s suicide car bombing of the Australian embassy in Jakarta….
A Muhammadiyah spokesman in Jakarta, Zainal, said the organisation – the second biggest Muslim association in Indonesia – was still working out “a position” following Joni’s arrest.
“But the police could have make the wrong arrest or have been wrongly identified,” he told AAP.
