Shariah Don't Like It...? Punk and Religion in Indonesia


Manufacturer: Active Distribution

Product Information

Essay - fully footnoted - describing some interview based social research done recently in Indonesia. Includes a bibliography and resource list, plus illustrations. Indonesia boasts one of the largest and most vibrant punk scenes on the planet today. It is also home to the world's largest Muslim population. Punk and religion are usually found in antagonism to one another, but the situation is far more complicated in Indonesia - and markedly different tot he oppositional relationship expected elsewhere in the world. Despite the fact that repression of punk in Indonesia is often religiously motivated, most interviewees still maintained a Muslim religious (or at least cultural-religious) identity. Those punks who did profess atheism were doing so against a very different social backdrop to their comrades in more secular parts of the world - and were making a much more significant stand in doing so.
