Six Catholic schools in Blitar municipality, East Java, have finally given in to a local ordinance and will provide Islamic lessons for their Muslim students.
The city ordinance requires all Muslim students to be able to read and write Koranic verses.
The head of the Religious Affairs Ministrys office in Blitar, Imam Mukhlis, told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday that the six schools had finally agreed to provide Islamic teachers for their Muslim students.
We met today [Tuesday] and everything is just fine and there is no problem. They are willing to carry out the city ordinance, he said.
A representative of the Yohanes Gabriel Foundation confirmed the decision and said that the Islamic lessons would be delivered by competent teachers and conducted outside the schools.
The Blitar city administration previously threatened to close down Diponogoro High School, the Catholic Vocational High School, Santa Maria Kindergarten, Santa Maria Elementary School, the Catholic Elementary School and Yos Sudarso Junior High School for their refusal to provide Islamic lessons to their Muslim students.

(My common ground with terrorists - they want to die for islam and we want to kill them)
Wait a minute. There's a huge discrepancy in this article. First it says the schools refused to provide INSTRUCTION and THEN it says they refused to HIRE Muslim teachers. Which is it? Since Catholic schools in Muslim countries have NEVER had a problem teaching islamic religion to their muslim students, it sounds like the real issue is who will teach them? Are Catholic schools being required to hire Muslim teachers? Because THAT would violate the schools’ human rights. Totalitarian islam strikes again. Always taking human freedoms away. Always.
As long as they teach the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth it could be a good thing.
Hearing Bush call it a ROP made me want to puke. I know that he knew better. What I don't know is why he pushed that BS.
I just don't get it.
