Grave encounters: The grave of F. Sriyati at the Segadoeng Cemetery had its cross damaged on Sunday in Tidar Krajan village, Magelang, Central Java. (JP/Bambang Muryanto)Tolerance in Indonesia has been put to the test once again with at least 19 cross-shaped grave markers wrecked in three cemeteries in Magelang, Central Java, along with the graves of three Muslims.
Some of the wooden crosses were damaged and partially pulled out of the ground, while some marble gravestones were smashed to pieces.
Mulyono, 42, a guard at the Giriloyo Public Cemetery, one of the three graveyards affected, said this was the first such incident in the area.
“This cross was kicked by someone until it came out of the ground,” Mulyono said, pointing at a wooden grave marker that has since been returned to its place.
