Indonesia: Authorities must repeal Joint Ministerial Decree discriminating against minority belief
Amnesty International is extremely concerned about a joint ministerial decree that will stop the right of a religious minority in Indonesia to freely practise their religion and beliefs in utter disregard of Indonesia’s international human rights obligations and protections in the Constitution. On 29 February 2016, a Joint Ministerial Decree (No. 93/2016) was issued by the Minister of Religious Affairs, the Attorney General and the Minister of Home Affairs forbidding the ‘Millah Abraham’ religious belief, adhered to by former members of a religious organisation known as Gafatar.
