Many converts from Islam experience pressure from their families. However, the intensity of the pressure depends on the individual family and place. Most pressure for Christian converts takes the form of isolation, verbal abuse, and ostracism. Only a small percentage of converts face physical violence for their Christian faith, and they may be forced to relocate to another part of Indonesia. The pressure is also higher in places like West Java or Aceh, where radical Islamic groups exert a heavy influence on society and politics.
If a church is believed to be proselytising, it will likely run into opposition from radical Islamic groups. Depending again on the region, some church groups also face difficulties getting permission to build churches. Even if they manage to fulfil all legal requirements (and win court cases), local authorities may still ignore them.
