Thousands of Muslims marched through the streets of Jakarta, Indonesia on Friday, to demand that the city’s Christian governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, commonly known as Ahok, be jailed over blasphemy allegations, as religious tensions rise ahead of an April 19 election. The protest’s turnout was small compared to rallies held in November, December, and February in Jakarta. According to police estimates, 15,000 people attended the Friday protest.
