Abstract

It is undeniable that the emergence of regulation with Islamic overtone in Indonesia often creates polemics in the midst of society, especially from the point of view of democracy and human rights. This study aimed to explicate the expansion of the discourse on the Sharia Regional Regulations in West Sumatra as one of the pioneers of the enactment of Sharia rules in the Regional Autonomy era. This is conducted through tracking related texts of the discourse on Sharia bylaws that have been published previously and are implemented by the local bureaucracy. The critical discourse approach and the BREAK theory are combined in an effort to disentangle the inter-text linkages in the Sharia rules discourse, regarding of the form, message and the motive behind it. The primary research findings state that there a tendency to expand the discourse on Sharia Regional Regulations which are modified into more persuasive forms such as work programs and regional policies by local governments. However, there is also a stronger impression of antagonism to enforce the total implementation of Sharia by interested parties. Both of these discoveries reflect a tug of war between interested parties which has an impact on the decline in the quality of democracy and violations of citizens’ rights.
