Indonesian Muslims hurled rotten eggs, cow dung and pi$$ bags at Christians during Christmas mass this week.
It’s not the first time the congregation has been attacked.
Earlier this year Muslims threw sewage, rotten eggs and garbage at praying Christians.
About 200 Protestants from the Batak Society Christian Church (HKBP) Philadelphia in West Java were attacked by Muslims as they gathered to attend a Christmas Eve service on Monday.
Church members, who are involved in a dispute with local officials after being denied a permit to build a place of worship in Bekasi district, had gathered for the service on land where they hope to build their church.
“Hundreds of Muslims threw rotten eggs, dung and plastic bags full of urine at us,” Reverend Palti Panjaitan, a leader of the Protestants, told ucanews.com yesterday.
He said the congregation was forced to flee and hold its service in the compound of a police station.
