Ministry of Religious Affairs: 212,000 Divorces Every Year
September 24th, 2013 by kafi
Jakarta: Ministry of Religious Affairs said 212,000
divorce cases occurred every year in Indonesia.
This number has increased from 10 years earlier.
“The numbers increased from 10 years ago, in
which the divorce rate was only around 50,000 per
year,” said Deputy Minister of Religious Affairs Dr.
Nasaruddin Umar in Jakarta, Saturday
Nasaruddin is deeply concerned about the high divorce rate. Moreover, nearly 80 percent who
divorced were at a young age. “The age of marriage is relatively young with small children. This
will lead to more social impact,” he explained.
In addition, continued the Deputy Minister, nearly 70 percent of divorces are khul’a divorce. In
other words, more women filed for divorce than a man who divorces his wife.
“Divorce also raises newissues that is the emergence of the newpoor,” added Nasaruddin.
There are a variety of reasons of divorce, he added, but what does not make sense is that divorce
is due to differences in political views. “It really does not make sense, but it happens,” he said.
Nasaruddin hopes that there is a solution to the front of the issue. So that the divorce rate in the
country can be reduced. (Ant / Riz) (Jakarta. Antaranews.com, 9/14/2013)

The huge number of divorces in Indonesian society is a signal that there are problems in marriage
today. The ministry of religious affairs has anticipated the high number of divorce cases by
providing ‘short courses on marriage knowledge’ for the future bride. The future couple is given an
understanding of what are the rights and responsibilities of both wife and husband. But this is not
the real solution for the problem. In fact, the heavy life burden is the factor that leads to disharmony,
non-tranquility and unhappiness in the family.
There are a lot of Indonesian women who filed for divorce because of economic and psychological
problems. Their husbands committed domestic violence, didn’t afford their family’s needs
because they were jobless, low income or no responsibility. Other factor triggers the khul’a is the
poison of gender equality. Women tend to be independent with no need for men and marriage as
they can earn money by themselves. The financial security is mostly the reason of khul’a when
there is a marriage problem.
From the fact we can conclude that the increasing number of divorces is a problem faced by a
society in which capitalism is implemented. No responsibility to family and committing domestic
violence is a picture of men in capitalist system. Poverty, insufficient jobs and no prosperity among
people are also the result of capitalism. Women’s liberty is also the rotten fruit of liberal ideas such
as gender equality and human rights. Those ideas are grown up in capitalism and the absence of
Islamic values and system in the society.
The only solution for this social problem is to redefine the responsibility of the government. Not
only by providing short courses about marriage to the bride. Fostering every people to values of
marriage and family should be integrated through the education and counseling curriculum. This
program should be accompanied by removing all of the media and spread of ideas that are
counterproductive to the value of the family. It is also the obligation for the government to generate
adequate employment, realize a conducive climate for business, and provide public needs such
as education and health without any charge.
All the state’s responsibility can not be done with the capitalist system as it is now. It is Islam which
provides the real solution through the Khilafah’s political system and economic system of Islam.
The Khilafah will protect majority Muslims’ families from the attack of foreign family values.
Khilafah will also independently determine the character education curriculum, provide
independent solutions for issues that befall the family and not parroting the international agenda
through the empowerment of women, civil marriage and gender equality. The Islamic economic
system will create prosperity, fair distribution of income, and sufficient job opportunities. The policy
not to hand over the management of natural resources to foreigners will result the ability of
government to provide quality public services.
Within this system all Indonesian families will achieve tranquility, harmony, happiness and
prosperity. As one of the promises of Allah وﺗﻌﺎﻟﻰ :ﺳﺑﺣﺎﻧﮫ
