Andreas Harsono: Indonesia Divided

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton once said, "If you want to know whether Islam, democracy, modernity and women's rights can coexist, go to Indonesia." However, recent and frequent violent attacks against the country's religious minorities suggest the nation of Indonesia is not the pluralistic paradise once described. Human Rights Watch researcher Andreas Harsono sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss the spiritual makeup of Indonesia, its government, the violence committed against groups, and how the outside world can lend a helping hand.
