Indonesia is the world’s most populous Muslim nation but it has historically enjoyed a secular political and cultural tradition. In more recent years that has been changing. Jihadists are targeting Indonesia through violence, politics and finance.
Shariah banking in particular has been growing at a rapid rate in Indonesia.
Today, Indonesia ranks only behind Iran (also the world’s foremost state sponsor of Jihadist terrorism), Malaysia and Saudi Arabia in terms of Shariah compliance. Only Turkey’s Shariah finance sector is known to be growing at a more rapid rate.
