Indonesia, Muslim students, religious attitudes, intolerance


In 2019, according to Pew Research Center, 83% Indonesian people believed that religion has played a significant role in the contemporary Indonesia. As the most Muslim majority country, Indonesia has lots of problems with religious intolerance. This research poster aims to provide data on Indonesian Muslim students’ religious attitudes as well as the possible causes and the measures to tackle the problems. A desk research method was used to collect secondary data from previous studies. The findings show that most Indonesian Muslim students had intolerant behaviors which might be inherited from environments they had lived in. Several causes of the phenomenon were traced, starting from Islamic Education teachers and faculties, the national standards, to cyberspace environments. Some recommendations to revise the national standards, develop the teachers and faculties, and training students are presented. It is hoped that students as the country’s future leaders have more open, moderate, and tolerant viewpoints.
