Abstract


The Ahmadiyah community in Indonesia has experienced increasing infringement on their religious
freedom in various forms during the last ten years. The opening up of democracy in 1998 resulted
in the involvement of “non state actors “in religious violence. Despite increasing attacks against the
Ahmadiyah community, the state has been reluctant to prevent or punish religious attacks against the
Ahmadiyah community. In this article I argue that violence against the Ahmadiyah is in danger of
becoming legitimate.
