Freedom of Religion

Christians and Moslem can not live together in harmony. Altough, uur country accept the principle "freedom of religion" (as formulated in Constitution), but the freedom is always limited by the mayority of moslem population.

I think that moslems and christians can not live together in harmony forever except all people become Mohammedan followers.

Is it true that a religion bring peace to the world?

One of story about this disharmony, here it is, I quoted from Kompas.com newspaper.

MUI: Christmas Decor in Indonesia 'Excessive'

JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com - Indonesia's top Islamic body said Thursday that Christmas decorations in malls, amusement centers and public places were "excessive and provocative" in the Muslim-majority country.

Christmas ornamentation had been put up in an "excessive and provocative way," said Muhyidin Junaedi, one of the chairmen of the Indonesia Ulema Council, or MUI.

"It should be done in a proportional manner as Muslims are the majority here, otherwise it will hurt their feelings," he said.

He said the MUI issued a recommendation urging mall and recreation center managers to act proportionally in decorating their premises.

"We received complaints from a number of malls' employees who are forced to wear Santa Claus costumes, which are against their faith. Such things should not have happened," he said.

"We need to restrain Muslims from joining the festivities," Junaedi said.He said the body had no plan to turn the recommendation, made on Tuesday, into an Islamic edict.  Nearly 90% of Indonesia's 234 million people are Muslims. ​
