Is this the protection afforded the dhimma once they have paid the jizya and feel themselves subdued? From Reuters:
Indonesia’s largest Islamic organisation will provide volunteers to help guard churches across the world’s most populous Muslim nation.
The move comes amid fresh fears of attacks on Christian buildings over the seasonal period and moves by the authorities to stamp out religious violence.
Jakarta police had already said they would boost security in the capital ahead of Christmas to avoid a repeat of 2000 Christmas Eve bombings on churches in several Indonesian cities.
A youth wing affiliated with Indonesia’s largest Muslim group Nahdlatul Ulama, some 40 million strong, said that members would guard churches for the coming Christmas festivities and it had persuaded youths from other religions to join the project.
“We have an annual programme to set up posts to secure Christmas. For this year, I have contacted groups from other religions like the Hindus and Buddhists and they have responded positively,” said Tatang Hidayat, National Coordinator of NU’s Banser group, known for its military-like uniform.
Hidayat said the volunteers would closely collaborate with existing police operations and the churches’ own security.
