Muslims, minorities and the state in Indonesia Indonesian Islam will remain moderate and tolerant by and large, but problems and challenges will continue to exist.

While violence, discrimination, and grievances are still felt among the minorities, especially non-Muslims, the Muslim majority continue maintaining the tolerant, moderate character of the country. A small number of hard-liners and terrorists will be disproportionately influential, but the tolerant, moderate majority and the government will not be silent.
