Minister of Religious Affairs Lukman Hakim Saifuddin said there was a problem when there are groups of people who voted in the elections based on religion.

According to Lukman, Indonesia is a religious state so natural that most people incorporate elements of religion in political choice.

"So including choosing presidents, board members, including the head of the region also by relying on his religious beliefs," Lukman said at the Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, Monday (13/02/2017).

"Therefore, we are in the midst of this diversity need not negate each other then, obstructs or blame when then co-religionists are different options. We have to respect and appreciate the differences of their choice," said Lukman.

Lukman said that, even within one religion is very likely to have a different political choice. This is due to disagreement in one religion.

Therefore, said Lukman, as compatriots, should differences, religious-based political choice is not cause for concern.

"We must honor and respect the choice of each is different. Because of that difference is based themselves on their religion, and religion is something that must be respected and upheld," said Lukman.
