Abstract
This paper explains the compatibility of Islam and Human Rights, although in fact Muslim countries are generally considered as being less respective and less protective of human rights. As one the Muslim countries, Indonesia has committed to protect human rights since the beginning of its independence, as showed by its 1945 Constitution. The concept of Indonesian human rights is adjusted to the Indonesian own philosophy and culture based on Pancasila. In the reform era (1998-present), the state commitment to human rights protection is stronger than in the previous periods. Nevertheless, there are problems or challenges in human rights protection caused by several factors, classified into structural and cultural factors. The government and the parliament have made efforts to overcome the problems and challenges by making regulations that are compatible with human rights and strengthening law enforcement to avoid human rights violation. Besides, political parties and civil society organizations also take part in educating people and countering any action that violates human rights.
