Indonesia: Religious Freedom

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN HL11124, tabled on 30 October 2018

To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Prime Minister’s Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief on his recent trip to Indonesia raised the situation of the non-religious in that country, as that country does not recognise the right to be a humanist, atheist or agnostic.

Yes. During my visit to Jakarta I talked about the rights of people of faith and those of no faith during a meeting of representatives of different religious communities, as well as raising the issue of Freedom of Religion or Belief in my meeting with the Minister of Religious Affairs.
