This is encouraging..

Thousands rally for Islamic law in Indonesia

"The rallies were part of a largely unsuccessful campaign to convince the country’s Muslim majority to embrace syariah or Islamic law.

Although more than 80 per cent of the country’s 210 million people are Muslim, only the war-torn province of Aceh has implemented the system on a small scale."

There is no such thing as a successful implementation of Shariah law anywhere in the world right now. Every example has shown to completely destroy any hope for equal rights for women, and also completely ignore the basic tenets of human rights. Any religion differing from Islam under shariah eventually gets repressed out of existence, for instance in Nigeria right now, and the fact that the 80% of Indonesians who are muslim realize that this is not workable is encouraging.
