Soeharto, Posted by Daniel Peterson, 01 September 2015
The Compilation of Islamic Laws (Kompilasi Hukum Islam) is the Republic of Indonesia's own state-sanctioned compilation of Islamic laws on marriage, inheritance and charitable foundations (wakaf). Established pursuant to Presidential Instruction No. 1 of 1991, it was compiled within the two authoritative symbols of Soeharto's New Order: the Pancasila and 1945 Constitution. Kompilasi Hukum Islam was intended to be treated as a set of guidelines, rather than an enforceable statute, its intended effect being to make matters of Islamic law become matters of the state.
