Religious tensions rise during Jakarta governor election


Indonesian youths march through their neighbourhood with an Islamic flag after quick count results showed their favoured candidate decisively ahead of the incumbent on April 19, 2017 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Police at Indonesia’s capital have said they are prepared for unrest as residents vote during the final round of Jakarta Governor election, one of the most bitterly fought elections, which has been marked by mass demonstrations against the incumbent governor Basuki Purnama Tjahaja, also known as Ahok, who became embroiled in a blasphemy scandal after being accused of insulting Islam. According to reports, over 64,000 police, soldiers and security offices will be deployed across the capital on Wednesday in a sign of the potential threat from ultra conservative Islamic groups who want the incumbent Governor jailed for blasphemy and insist a non-Muslim cannot lead a majority Muslim city.
