Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: President Joko Widodo said he will not interfere the investigation into the alleged blasphemy case involving Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama.

"I will not protect Basuki Tjahaja Purnama," said Jokowi in Muhammadiyah headquarters in Jakarta on Tuesday (11//8).

"The legal process is on going," he continued.

Muslim hardliners staged a protest in Jakarta on Friday (11/4). They demanded the police to charge Ahok for religious blasphemy.

The government received several protesters at the time. The police agreed to accelerate the legal process.
