Islamist politicians in Indonesia are attempting to impose Shariah on the entire country, including non-Muslims, with legislation which would basically entrench Shariah standards for food products.

Critics of the bill correctly point out that it will directly impact non-Muslims. No doubt, this is exactly why the Islamists have introduced the legislation.

It should also be noted that the bill includes a provision for citizen enforcement, opening the door for Islamic vigilantes.

There are two links on this issue, the first to an article in The Jakarta Post and the second to a forum discussion for readers in the same publication. The forum discussion is especially interesting as non-Muslims in Indonesia are very wary of Shariah.
