Christians call for rejection of sharia-inspired bills in Indonesia

The Indonesian Council of Churches (PGI) has called for the rejection of two bills inspired by Islam's strict sharia law, reports Charisma News Online.

The Halal Product Guarantee Bill and the Zakat Obligatory Alms Management Bill, both under consideration in the Indonesian parliament, cater to the needs of one religious group at the expense of others, violating Indonesia's policy of pancasila, or religious tolerance, said the Rev. Dr. A.A. Yewangoe, director of the PGI.
