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.

    But that's being opposed by Islamic groups

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