Indonesia has a tolerant history of all religions that practice their faiths freely. The Wahaabi have made it their business to demean and persecute all other creeds and freely oppresses the Shia minority in East Java. The East Java authorities lack the political will to confront and restrain these Wahaabis. If this were to continue, all religion freedoms in the country will be at risk. Furthermore, the Shia communities of Indonesia are her citizens, guaranteed protection of freedom of worship by her constitution.
