- This research aims to explore the terrorism issue after the fall of Suharto regime in Indonesia in 1998. Sometimes, terrorism is considered part of Islam because of the misunderstanding of Western society that misidentifies terrorism as part of Islamic teachings. The study found that the concept of jihad in Islam mistakenly understood as the root of the suicide bombings. The fact is that the concept of jihad in Islam has many meanings, namely jihad fi sabilillah and jihad fillah. While in Islam itself, there are such an Inclusive Islamic Group and an Exclusive Islamic Group. Those who involve in the Exclusive Islam tend to come up as a hard-liner Muslims, extremism and absolutism. While Inclusive Islam spreads religious peace in societies. This research was conducted with qualitative approach. The data obtained through a depth-interviewed, observation as well as documentation. In conclusion, inclusive Islam is a characteristic of the Islam in Indonesia. The presence of the inclusive Islam such as Islam Nusantara resists the assumption that terrorism is exist in Islam. This research adapts a qualitative approach as the method for this study. The data were collected using an interviewed, observation as well as library research.
