PILI - NGO Movement Indonesia (Indonesian NGO Network)
A note on Islam for the uninitiatedI am also aware that these WWWVL pages contain few explicit links to sites on Islam in Indonesia. And whilst I could compile an exhaustive list, it is simpler to refer people to that already created by Suara Hidayatullah Online. Be aware that the definition of a site as Islamic is highly subjective and that those on offer provide an extremely varied range of opinions. Remember too that Indonesia, whilst having a majority Muslim population, has substantial non-Muslim communities. - M. Laffan
