(Compass) – In the wake of the May 28 bombing in Tentena, both Muslim and Christian leaders have expressed concern about corruption and violence in Indonesia . Some Muslim leaders believe the best solution is the nationwide implementation of sharia (Islamic) law. Congresses held in Jakarta in 2004 and Sulawesi in March 2005 recommended that sharia principles be introduced through a revision of Indonesia ’s criminal law. Meanwhile, provincial councils are including more sharia principles in local bylaws. In some provinces, governors have restricted freedom of worship for Christians.
