The spirit of Muslims in Indonesia to live under Sharia increase during the last five years. The presence of the Local Government Act 2004 gives the authority to the local government to manage their regions on their own wisdom under the principle of autonomy. In several regions such as Bulukumba, Padnag , Cianjur, Tangerang, and Banten this great opportunity has been employed by the local governement to promulgate byelaws concerning sharia-related issues . These byelaws are politically known as Perda Syariah. Its undeniable that the applications of what so called Perda Syariah in Bulukamba constitutes strong evidence to prove that non-criminal society can come into reality , not just a dream. This great succes has influenced other district to follow it. Recently, around 37 districts in indonesia are in the preparation of promulgating the same byelaws. However , the emergence of whats so called Perda Syariah in several regions in indonesia has invited attacks and criticims.
