CASE NOTE: The Proselytisation Case: Law, the Rise of Islamic Conservatism and Religious Discrimination in West Java

Melissa Crouch is a Research Assistant at the Centre for the Study of Contemporary Islam, the University of Melbourne, and Editorial Assistant, Australian Journal of Asian Law.

On 1 September 2005 three Christian women were found guilty in Indramayu, West Java, on charges of proselytisation under Indonesian national Law 23/2002 on Child Protection. The case has attracted great controversy, winning the attention of the former President of Indo­nesia, Abdurrahman Wahid, who called for charges against the women to be withdrawn.
