Pancasila

Source:
The Oxford Dictionary of Islam What is This? Covers the religious, political, and social spheres of global Islam in the modern world

    Pancasila

    Indonesian. Five principles. Core ideology of the Indonesian government consisting of belief in God, Indonesian nationalism, humanitarianism or just and civilized humanity, democracy, and social justice. Formulated by Sukarno in 1945 . Intended to alleviate religious tensions and promote pluralism, since specific religious practice is the individual's choice. Some Muslim activists contest that Pancasila is responsible for the rising number of conversions to Christianity and does not give Islam a sufficiently prominent place in Indonesian national ideology.
