Today is a very special day for Indonesia and India. This is because today (Tuesday, 26 October 2021) Sukmawati Sukarnoputri, the younger daughter of former Indonesian President Sukarno, is going to leave Islam and embrace Hinduism. This is also very special because Indonesia is a Muslim majority country. CNN Indonesia had given information about her leaving Islam and adopting Hinduism a few days ago.
One notable feature of her conversion is that her move has been supported by his brothers, Guntur Soekarnoputra, and Guruh Soekarnoputra, and sister Megavati Soekarnoputri. Not only this, her step has also been welcomed by her children i.e. Muhammad son Parveera Utama, Prince Haryo Paundrajarna Sumautra Jeevenegara, and Gusti Raden Age daughter Sinivati.
However, in view of the increasing cases of corona infection in the country, the general public has been urged not to participate in this ceremony. However, invitation cards have been sent to some special people for this ceremony of adopting Hinduism. Apart from this, more close people of his family will be involved in this ceremony.
Leaving Islam to convert to Hinduism will be organized at the Sukarno Center Heritage Area of Bale Agung Singaraja Buleleng Regency, Bali. Sukmawati is the third daughter of Sukarnoputri Sukarno and younger sister of former President Meghavati Sukarnaputri. Let us tell you that in the year 2018, radical Islamic organizations of Indonesia filed a complaint of blasphemy against her. It was said on behalf of the organizations that she insulted Islam through a poem recitation.
These organizations demanded that Sukmavati apologize publicly for this. After this Sukmavati also apologized. This information was also given by the local media there. Significantly, Indonesia is the country with the largest Muslim population in the world.
The news of Sukmavati leaving Islam to convert to Hinduism has surprised many. Although it is said about her that she has been influenced by Hinduism for a long time. Many times she has also taken part in public functions of Hindus. Many times she has also been seen interacting with religious heads in Hinduism.
