A minority Christian governor sobbed in a Jakarta courtroom Tuesday on the opening day of his trial, denying blasphemy charges for allegedly defaming Islam.

In September Governor Basuki Tjahaja  Purnama said his political opponents had used a verse from the Quran to deceive voters – sparking public outrage and the blasphemy charges that could land him in jail for five years.

The controversy erupted when a video appeared online, showing Purnama lightheartedly saying that people were being deceived if they believed his detractors who asserted that the Quran prohibits Muslims having a non-Muslim leader.

“I understand the charges but I don’t understand why I’m being accused of blasphemy,” Purnama said after prosecutors read out the indictment.

Blasphemy, still considered a crime in much of the world, is a supposed insult of a religion or deity.
