Pastor sentenced for blasphemy in Indonesia

TANGERANG, Java — On May 7 an Indonesian court sentenced a Protestant pastor to four years in prison and a hefty fine for sharing his faith with a taxi driver.

The Jakarta Post reported that a district court issued the ruling against Abraham Ben Moses, a well-known former Muslim apologist, who was heard asking the taxi driver to accept Christ in a widely circulated video released in 2017.

Because of the video, Muhammadiyah, one of Indonesia’s largest Islamic organizations, filed a blasphemy complaint against Moses.

Moses’ legal team will reportedly file an appeal, reported The Christian Post. (TAB)
