    Indonesia’s military is threatening to “extinguish” a hard-line Islamist group after its firebrand leader vowed to launch a “moral revolution”. Rizieq Shihab returned to Indonesia earlier this month after living in self-imposed exile in Saudi Arabia for three years. Professor Vedi Hadiz, the director of the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne, tells The World while the cleric is a controversial figure, his capacity to draw crowds makes him “important for political leaps”.
