This research shows that there are many false arrest especially towards Muslims based on false accusations, vilifications, or groundless premature speculations with no fact and validity whatsoever. Although the victims are being released, but the victims are labelled by others as in the effect of the accidents. Thus terrorist label are attached to the victims that presumed as terrorists. This discourse revealed that Indonesian terrorism cases handling, especially around Poso Regency in Central Sulawesi, are not inline with the official rules and guidelines.
