Abstract
This article provides a descriptive lens of the emergent hate-speech that has been spreading in various new media as result of the religious sectarianism interests in Islamic community. The reinforcements of sectarianism in Indonesian Islamic community is not separated from global turbulences and political constellation in the Middle East. The result of religious sectarianism has produced a social distance, prejudice and social conflict in the Islamic community. By using theoretical framework of Jurgen Habermas’s deliberative democracy, the writer seeks for a solution to transform hate-speech in new media into peaceful dialogical communication, full respect and deep mutual understanding of each Islamic community.
