Badui People Hope Govt to Formally Acknowledge Their Faith

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Badui people residing in Lebak Regency, Banten expected Constitutional Court to grant their judicial review of Law No. 24 /2013 on civil registry data in which religion information both on their ID cards family cards (KK) is set as their faith Selam Wiwitan.

"We object the information of our religion written as nondenominational faith," Badui resident Santa (45) said in Lebak on Saturday (11/11).

Badui tribes hold faith in their religion Selam Wiwitan because it has been passed down from their ancestors. In fact, Badui tribes will again refuse to put nondenominational faith in their documents.

Furthermore, all males in Badui tribes practice circumcision, pronounce syahadat (creed), and their matrimony is performed by penghulu (Muslim wedding officiant).

Santa explained that from 1970-2013, Selam Sunda Wiwitan was written in their ID cards and family cards, yet from 2013 to 2017 nothing has been written regarding their religion since Law No.24/2013 only acknowledge six religions excluding theirs.
