Council of Indonesian Ulama

As Indonesia’s top Muslim clerical body, the Council of Indonesian Ulama (Majelis Ulama Indonesia, MUI) advises the Muslim community on contemporary issues. It was founded by the Suharto government in 1975. It is intended to facilitate interactions between the secular Indonesian state and the majority Muslim community, encourage the involvement of religious authorities in national development, and enable interfaith cooperation. The group issues religious rulings on a variety of topics, ranging from public policies to popular culture. A wide range of Muslim groups, notably Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) and Muhammadiyah, sit on the council.
