Abstract

Abstract- A relatively peaceful and harmonious relationship between Muslims and Christians in Indonesia has been dotted by religious intolerance and worship restrictions in the form of churches destruction, banned and closed. The majority of restrictions happened in West Java Province, mostly in Bandung, Bekasi and Bogor regions where this research use them as a case study. Ironically, the majority of restriction occurred in the Reformasi era, where the political system should have promoted human rights and practices of the decentralized system. Against this background, this thesis seeks to find out the cases of worship restriction in reform era and how a democratic government deals with such restriction. To answer the questions, this research utilizes qualitative methodology particularly the case studies, to ensure the Comprehensiveness of its data sources and analyzes. By employing theories of democracy and democratization, decentralization, and human rights, this study finds that Muslims-Christians relationship since the beginning of their encounter in Indonesia has been spoiled by reciprocal threat perception regarding the suspicion of Christianization vis a vis the suspicion of the establishment of the Islamic state.
