Aceh of Sumatra Cluster – Profile
  • The Aceh of Sumatra cluster occupies the northern portion of the island of Sumatra, the “largest unevangelized island on earth”. This is the only part of Indonesia that has implemented Shari’I law, for certain situations.
  • The history of Aceh is one of centuries of conflict with Dutch and British colonial powers, and since 1949 the Indonesian army, all seeking control of its strategic position and natural resources. This has made the Aceh people hostile to Christianity.
  • The 2004 Asian tsunami killed more than 200,000 people, most of them in Aceh province. The tsunami effectually ended the decades-old uprising of the Aceh against Indonesian rule. There were fewer than 400 Christians before the tsunami, but there have been recent increases in this number. Many Indonesian and foreign Christians came to the aid of the victims, which gained considerable credit for the Gospel.
  • There are indications the Aceh people were exposed to Hinduism in the past, but today are often considered the most conservative Muslim group in all of Indonesia. They have been very instrumental in spreading Islam throughout Indonesian and other Southeast Asian countries.
  • Orthodox Islam for many Aceh people is combined with animistic beliefs in spirits and various superstitions. These beliefs center on seeking protection through magic by either appeasing or controlling both good and bad spirits.
