The Jokowi Government’s recent banning of the Islamic Defenders’ Front (FPI) is the most sweeping anti-Islamist action since the fall of Soeharto’s New Order regime in 1998. In late December 2020, the government unexpectedly announced FPI’s disbandment and shortly after arrested FPI’s spiritual leader Habib Rizieq Syihab and multiple other Front leaders following a shoot-out between police and FPI guards which left six of the latter dead.
