INDONESIA: Ten youth organizations of different religious background have asked the Indonesian government to take multicultural issues more seriously, saying it has failed to guarantee the freedom of religion in the country. “The indicators are prohibition of holding prayer meetings by certain parties, church attacks and terror (attacks) against churches,” said Stefanus Gusma, chairman of the Union of Catholic Students of Republic of Indonesia (PMKRI) (http://www.pmkri.web.id/), in their statement issued on Jan. 16. The government has not taken firm legal action against those oppressing minority groups, they said in their statement which followed up on the religious leaders’ call for the government to stop lying.
