Abstract

Indonesia’s political system is democracy. Indonesia’s democracy is religious democracy. Even though democracy is godly, there are Islamic groups who are antipathy and want to overthrow it. Democracy in Indonesia still has many shortcomings, but that is no reason to leave it, especially if the substitute offered is not better. Unfortunately, the Islamic group wants to replace it with something bad, namely their version of the Islamic system which is tyranny, intolerant, and discriminative. Regarding the poor implementation of democracy in Indonesia, it must be recognized, and concrete steps are taken to improve it. Democracy education is one of the ways. And Social Sciences has a strategic role to take part in it. For democracy education to succeed, what must be considered is not only the education itself but also how to make the public aware that the existence of groups hostile to democracy in the name of faith is real and needs to be watched out for.
