Southeast Asia’s religious tolerance is deceptive -

Often quoted as examples of where tolerance, democracy and Islam co-exist happily, Malaysia and Indonesia are instead examples of the global trend in Islam to more fundamentalism and less tolerance of non Muslims (as is often enjoined in the Koran, eg, 98.7-8). To more Sharia and less secular lawmaking. To more repression of women and minorities.
