Conservatism is an influencing powerful movement in several countries. Indonesia, for example, encounters serious issues dealing with religious conflict because of religious conservatism. This happens especially after the demise of Seoharto's regime in 1998 when this country could no longer control the resurgence of radical Islamic groups and the increasing hatred between communities based on religious and ethnic differences. Although religious conservatism among Muslims can be obviously observed, several researchers still deny this conservative turn in this Muslim majority country, or at least deny that it has a negative influence. However, this essay will argue strongly that conservative Islam is now gaining ground among Indonesian Muslims, and will argue that its impact on public spheres is dangerous. It will then establish the causes of this phenomenon, before recommending necessary measures to counter its influence. To support this, the research uses secondary data from well-publicized journals and electronic articles.
