Indonesia boasts the largest Muslim population in the world, but it also has a significant number of minorities – it’s a highly pluralistic society. So Indonesian Islam has had to develop ways of respecting those of other religions and diverse cultural groups and this really comes out, in my view, in the way they approach the Muslim personal status law and jurisprudence. One of the things that the introduction to the draft law emphasises is the idea of basic equal rights of human beings. As in Morocco, this draft calls for husband and wife to be declared equal heads of family, but it goes further – for example, mandating mutual obedience of spouses and not simply the obedience of a wife to a husband. Another important feature of the Indonesian document is that both women and men may marry non-Muslims.
