West Sumatra is believed to have been hit by a crisis of religious freedom and intolerance in recent years. Thus, this paper aimed to reveal the portrait of democracy violations committed by the local government in West Sumatra focused on religious freedom. The critical discourse analysis methodology was used to dismantle the basis of discourse by referring to the theoretical framework offered by Sawirman’s BREAK (2014) as a comprehensive way of analysis in understanding a political discourse. The result of the analysis shows that the discourse of violations of religious freedom by the West Sumatra’s regional government is realized through the implementation of general and special regulations that cornering minority groups and emphasize attention to aspects of morality so as to create an unhealthy democratic atmosphere.
