    Abstract

    Indonesians who identify themselves as Shi'a have been constantly striving to establish their social identity among the Sunni majority in the country. Despite political pressure from the Suharto regime in the corresponding period, they have managed to make tremendous progress in the last two decades, especially after 1998.
