Herdi Sahrasad


This article mainly concerned on the reflection of pluralism practice in the Indonesia context. Although, this issue is becoming a commitment for the government to implement it in the wider context of society, a number of challenges have been demonstrated in this research proving that pluralism is still a common problem in this country. The author illustrated a lot of cases in different areas which happened that threaten harmony and peace in the Indonesia life. This research discusses both pluralism and democracy as the two important entities which could not be separated.

So that the side effect of the misunderstanding, sociologically, sparks up social conflicts and issues of identity  in  the name of God, religion or other primordialism.
