Indonesia battles radicalisation

Islamic groups oppose new policy aimed at controlling what is being preached by religious leaders.

    Indonesia is waging a national campaign to stop the so called "radicalisation" within the country.
     
    The government wants religious leaders to take the lead, and control what's being preached.
     
    But that's being opposed by Islamic groups

    Meanwhile, religious violence has increased including the latest attack on a religious school in West Java.
