Hizb ut-Tahrir Indonesia’s Objection to Review of Blasphemy Law 1/PNPS/1965
As one of the religions professed by the majority of Indonesian people, Islam and the Muslim community are among those protected by the law. If the law is dropped as requested by the plaintiff, the protection of the sanctity and the purity of Islam is threatened. Even when this law is still valid now, various interpretations and deviant religious practices continue to emerge, then what will it be when it is removed. Not to mention there are various actions that lead to hostility, abuse, and desecration of Islam. So it is certain, if the prohibition against those acts is dropped, distortion, and desecration of Islam will be more vivid.
"Say: "He is Allah, the One."
Both definitions mentioned above are used by the plaintiff to make an example to reinforce their argument that the main subject of Islam is different. In fact, if we scrutiny the two definitions given by ulama are not different, much less contradictory. Even if there appears to be a difference, it is located on the editorial language, not substantive.
وَإِن طَلَّقْتُمُوهُنَّ مِن قَبْلِ أَن تَمَسُّوهُنَّ وَقَدْ فَرَضْتُمْ لَهُنَّ فَرِيضَةً فَنِصْفُ مَا فَرَضْتُمْ إَلاَّ أَن يَعْفُونَ أَوْ يَعْفُوَ الَّذِي بِيَدِهِ عُقْدَةُ النِّكَاحِ
مِّن مُّشْرِكٍ وَلَوْ أَعْجَبَكُمْ أُوْلَـئِكَ يَدْعُونَ إِلَى النَّارِ وَاللّهُ يَدْعُوَ إِلَى الْجَنَّةِ وَالْمَغْفِرَةِ بِإِذْنِهِ وَيُبَيِّنُ آيَاتِهِ لِلنَّاسِ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَذَكَّرُونَ
This verse is very clear, does not cause a lot of interpretation that it is forbidden for men to marry Musyrikah women, and Mukminah women married with Musyrikah men. If there is a contrary conclusion, allowing the marriage so someone has made clearly distorted interpretation.
شُرَكَاء لَقَد تَّقَطَّعَ بَيْنَكُمْ وَضَلَّ عَنكُم مَّا كُنتُمْ تَزْعُمُونَ
