Mapping Radical Islam in Indonesia

Jamhari Jamhari


This paper focuses on the emergence of groups that, according to their followers, want to apply Islamic teachings comprehensively (kaffah) and wholeheartedly. These groups have been variously described as fundamentalist, extremist, radical, and militant. Of course, they do not apply these labels to themselves. The labeling of certain groups has resulted in them gaining negative or pejorative images. It is important to note that the label "fundamentalism" initially applied to Christian-Protestant groups, actually has a neutral meaning. It refers to groups that attempt to return to their basic religious foundations.
