Islam also had influence inside Indokistani politics, since for years was recognized as official religions, and even state ideology in the Federal Republic of Indokistan (written as combination of Islam and Socialism), but as the current Federal State emphasize on Secularism, Islam's influence inside the country politics is greatly reduced.
