Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama said he felt offended by testimony conveyed by Irena Handono, a former nun who became an Islamic teacher, in the hearing on Tuesday, as most of her statements were slanderous.

 

During the hearing, Irena criticized Ahok's policies, which she claimed have deprived Muslims in the city.

 

As an example, Irena said that Ahok had banned Muslims from using National Monument (Monas) park in Central Jakarta for a mass prayer event but let Christians use the venue for Easter celebrations.

 

Ahok stated that the accusation was baseless.

 

"I never let people use Monas for Easter celebrations. I just comply with the presidential regulations, which state that Monas should be a 'clear zone'. Religious celebrations can be conducted at Istiqlal (mosque) or Cathedral (church)," Ahok said during a hearing.

 

"I never did what you accused me of. Don't slander me."

 

Ahok rebutted Irena's statement, which accused Ahok of destroying a mosque.

 

"How could I destroy a mosque when I wanted to rebuild mosques? If I haven't rebuilt a mosque yet it is because of limiting circumstances. Don't raise unsubstantiated opinions like that," he said.

 

The incumbent also denied Irena's accusations that claimed he had forced students to wear Muslim uniforms.

 

Ahok explained he had set aside some of the city's budget to assist students with buying their uniforms.
