There are three major State enemies, namely corruption, drugs and terrorism. Terrorism has been a big issue
in Indonesia for years. This is due to the trivial and rigid understanding of religion that leads the birth of the violent and radical doctrines. The politicization of religion is done by a certain group that claims to have
most complete understanding of religion, but in the end wants to build a new dominance in the name of religion. Such politicization has made the Religion lose its essential soul as an inclusive religion and turned
into an exclusive, intolerant, extreme and inhumane. In this case, Indonesia became a fertile ground to the
interests of particular groups due to weak law enforcement, while religious education in schools does not fully promote the values and moral behavior. Therefore, religious education in Indonesia needs to be re-reviewed, especially in the development of noble values. Education practitioners willing to build this nation free of radicalism and terrorism should seriously attend religious education materials in schools.
