Radicalisation in Indonesia

ASEAN Today, Social media is facilitating Islamic radicalisation in Indonesia

"Although many accounts spreading extremist content have been blocked and deleted, new accounts continue to sprout up. Last year, Facebook stated that Indonesia is one a few countries where a large number of users have fake or duplicated accounts. When radical accounts are deleted, users simply migrate to another account to spread their ideas, making tackling hate online a game of cat-and-mouse between Islamists and the authorities. "
