An American interfaith foundationÂ based in New YorkÂ has honoured Indonesia’s President for promoting religious freedom and human rights.
TheÂ award by theÂ Appeal of Conscience FoundationÂ has outraged members of Indonesia’s religious minorities who say Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono does not deserve it.
They cited reports by organisations like Human Rights Watch, which has concluded that the Indonesian government has done little to protect religious minorities.
