Jakarta, CNN Indonesia

Social media activist and lecturer at the University of Indonesia (UI) Goodbye Armando mention Rocky Gerung tacky and not worth listening to.

According to Ade, his thinking is not like Rocky Gerung’s who called the holy book a fiction. He also will not accuse Rocky of blasphemy because of this statement.

“My thoughts are not real thoughts, for example Rocky Gerung said that the holy book is fiction right? I myself would not say that he was blaspheming religion because that was his view,” explained Ade.

According to him, Rocky’s statement will offend people who have strong religious beliefs.

Ade then compared Rocky’s view with his statement quoting a verse and said that the Koran does not mention the five daily prayers.

Ade also compared Rocky’s view with his statement that God is not an Arab. According to Ade, the statement is basic logic.

“Yes, it’s funny, especially Rocky Gerung, but it’s like Nong (the presenter) said, you don’t have to listen to him,” he explained.
