Hard to understand why anyone says Beijing has the best skyline... most of the time you can't see it because of smog, otherwise it's pretty boring when compared to Shanghai or HK.
Why don't we consider things like murder rates while we are at it?

The best two modern capital skylines in my book (not in order):
Doha & Panama City

Then cities like KL, Tokyo, Beijing, Mexico City, Seoul, etc.
Then Paris, London, Moscow etc.

Jakarta's murder rate is much lower than any US city, and also its crime rate is much lower than many parts of the world.

I think xtraxxl was being sarcastic when he made reference to this. Nevertheless, it was a trolling comment, and there is no need to feed the trolls in here.

Maybe it doesn't have a supertall, but the quality and variety of the buildings in this capital city is just splendid in my opinion:

Doha, Qatar
