    Default To be a non-Muslim in Indonesia implies the inevitability of an unjust daily life

    “In May 2016, Zulfa Nur Rohman, a vocational secondary school student in Semarang Central Java, failed the 11th grade for a religious reason. He could not continue to 12th grade since he refused to reading the Quran and perform prayers in the mandatory Islamic studies classes.”
    To listen to the self-appointed “Islamophobia” watchdogs in the West, one would get the idea that Muslim students in the U.S. were failing classes because they were refusing to participate in mandatory Bible studies. That, of course, is not happening anywhere. But what happened to Zulfa Nur Rohman is real, and is happening in a reputedly “moderate” Muslim country. But no one will be particularly concerned. It isn’t as if something really serious such as “Islamophobia” were going on.

    “Speak up on religious discrimination at school,” by L. Nugraheni, Jakarta Post, August 9, 2017:
    Sati (not her real name) is a Hindu living in Jakarta. In 1991, she had to pose as a Muslim when she enrolled in a public elementary school for safety reasons. Consequently, she should attend every hour of the Islamic class and participated in the various activities of Islamic worship such as prayers and reading the Quran. This went on for ten years until she enrolled in senior high school.
    At the age of 17, when she applied for the national ID card, her father suggested her to fill Islam in the religion column. At that point, she refused and insisted on becoming her true self, a Hindu — a decision that she regretted later when her sister miserably became a target in a riot involving Muslims and Hindus in South Lampung, Sumatra in 2012. The mobs burnt her sister’s house to ashes, forcing her to flee and hide for weeks. Sati’s sister suffered a miscarriage on the run.
    Nowadays, to be a non-Muslim in Indonesia implies the inevitability of a troublesome and unjust daily life. Discrimination against non-Islamic communities has been so prevalent that children are becoming easy targets. The blatant religious discrimination is quite expansive, harming students’ educational rights.
    In May 2016, Zulfa Nur Rohman, a vocational secondary school student in Semarang Central Java, failed the 11th grade for a religious reason. He could not continue to 12th grade since he refused to reading the Quran and perform prayers in the mandatory Islamic studies classes.
    Zulfa became a victim of an unjust policy at his school because he is an adherent of a traditional faith, Hayu Ningrat. When enrolled in kindergarten, his parents had to declare their religion. Since Indonesia’s 1965 Blasphemy Law does not accommodate his faith, Zulfa’s parents claimed themselves as Muslims. Zulfa then had to follow all the Islamic studies classes and participate in every worship activities. When he refused to perform the prayers and recite the mandatory declaration of faith or shahadah, his teacher gave a zero score. Thus, he could not continue to the next grade.
    These cases by no means only belong in the past. Just last June, a public junior high school in Banyuwangi, East Java, rejected a girl because she was not a Muslim. The student identified as NWA, complained to local education authorities who ordered the school to enroll her. However, the school required her to wear the hijab even though she is a Christian.
    When she returned to the local education office, the officials refused to take any actions and suggested she enroll in another school. Fortunately, the incident was all over the news. Regent AZWAR ANAS expressed outrage and the school withdrew its nonsensical policy – though the student applied and was accepted at another school.
    Sati, Zulfa, and NWA are just a small number of students who experienced religious discrimination in Indonesia schools.
    The abusive behavior often targets minority students, both in verbal or physical forms of bullying by other students of the majority group. Bullying worsens when the system endorses the discrimination by default, as happened to Sati and Zulfa. The government has so far shown no serious intention to alleviate those cases….

    U are viewing it from the viewpoint of the west,it is their culture,who are u to tell them what they should or shouldn't do?every country like Japan has their own quirks and idiosyncrasies.its funny how u guys spit on liberals and sjws but when it comes to Muslims everything insults ur western ideals and ur so called proclaimed tolerance for the intolerant.in a way u guys are secret Muslims in closets,u want ur wives pussies to be grabbed,the homosex and lbgts executed and all atheists and non believers persecuted.

    Islam is a religion of peace indeed. U don't see such discriminatory practice in Christian countries with minority mozzies population. It's high time Christian countries practice such discrimination against mozzies. An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth. Mozzies do not need to be treated fairly for they are the ultimate discriminators. Have to fight fire with fire.

    I am so sad now that the stupid ang mor king got rid of such a good policy n now their country is in a mess...but there was never discrimination against the mozzies. The UK king discriminated against the Catholics n Jews...if there was mozzies discrimination..it should never have ended.
