Bomb attack on Protestant church in Indonesia kills infant – another blow to religious harmony in the Muslim-majority nation 

A convicted terrorist hurled petrol bombs at a Protestant church in Indonesia on 13 November killing one infant and leaving three others hospitalized with severe burns.

The attacker, a 32-year-old man identified as Johanda, threw several petrol bombs into the parking lot of the Batak Society Christian Church of Oikumene in Samarinda, East Kalimantan province.

Four children playing in the lot were injured and rushed to nearby hospitals. One of them, a two and a half year-old toddler named Intan Olivia Banjarnahor later died on 14 November.

The attack came after tens of thousands of Islamic hard-liners rallied in Jakarta on 5 November calling for the city's Protestant governor to be jailed for blasphemy, or even put to death. Many now worry the Muslim-majority nation might be turning towards extremism.

According to National Police Chief General Tito Karnavian, the bomber was sentenced in 2012 to three years and six months in prison for his involvement in a plot to blow up the Center for Science and Technology Research. He was released on parole two in 2014.

"The perpetrator has been arrested. Please trust law enforcement officers to uncover his [terrorist] network," Indonesian language news site, Tempo, quoted him as saying.

Meanwhile, Samarinda Police Chief Setyobudi Dwiputro claimed the attack was the first terrorist act to have taken place in the province, claiming that East Kalimantan was usually a place of religious tolerance.

The blast resonated right to the top of the Indonesian administration. President Joko Widodo tweeted that the attack must be "investigated thoroughly" on 13 November. 

Reverend Gomar Gultom, general secretary of the Communion of Churches in Indonesia, said that all of Indonesia's religious leaders needed to spread the message of peace, humanity and nationhood. "This is why religions came to this earth," he said. He also entreated the government to prevent similar incidents from happening.
