House of worship law

Categories: East Asia, Indonesia, Citizen Media, Law, Religion

Per the latest revisions in the law, for purposes of establishing a house of worship, religious congregations are now required to have a minimum of 90 members. They must also secure the prior approval of the government and the residents of the area where the house of worship is to be erected. Indonesia Matters republished an interview [1] of a Philosophy professor who says the new rules violate the Constitutional right to freedom of religious worship.
