Denpasar, Indonesia

#1 Nov 13, 2012
Tolerance in Indonesia is an appearance with a shallow depth. Society tends to be inward looking especially in Java. Uniformity is appreciated which shows in the desire to convert shia's into sunni's. The alternative which is to show tolerance to other's opinion is felt to be more cumbersome and therefore is rejected. Never mind that SBY was rubbing shoulders with Ahmedinajad the President of the most important Shia nation just two weeks ago.
