Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Indonesian Police Chief General Sutarman said an Indonesian national who had called on Muslims to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in a video broadcast on YouTube was a fugitive terrorist.

"The Indonesian police have been following the move to call on the people to join the organization (ISIS). We have identified the person, whose initial is B. He is our fugitive," he said here on Monday.

The Indonesian national who had appeared on an eight-minute-long video in the YouTube broadcast under the title "Join the Rank" had been in the polices wanted list, he said.

The man called himself "Abu Muhammad al-Indonesia," he said, adding that the Indonesian police will take legal action against anyone involved in unlawful activities.

Sutarman said the Indonesian people should not be influenced by calls for supporting ISIS. Instead, they have been urged to take proactive steps to halt the dangerous move that can threaten the Indonesian peoples unity.

The police have been monitoring the situation, particularly after tens of Indonesians have gone to Syria. "At least 56 Indonesians are living in the country, and three have died," he said.

In another development, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has reminded Indonesians of the fact that not all problems in the Middle East are related to religion, so they must well understand about it.
