PENDIRIAN RUMAH IBADAH

Tata cara pendirian rumah ibadah diatur dalam Peraturan Bersama Menteri Agama dan Menteri Dalam Negeri Nomor 8 dan Nomor 9 Tahun 2006 tentang Pedoman Pelaksanaan Tugas Kepala Daerah/Wakil Kepala Daerah dalam Pemeliharaan Kerukunan Umat Beragama, Pemberdayaan Forum Kerukunan Umat Beragama (FKUB), dan Pendirian Rumah Ibadah.

Pada Pasal 13 Perber Menag dan Mendagri No. 8/9 Tahun 2006, disebutkan bahwa pendirian rumah ibadah didasarkan pada keperluan nyata dan sungguh-sungguh berdasarkan jumlah penduduk bagi pelayanan umat beragama yang bersangkutan di wilayah kelurahan/desa. Pendirian rumah ibadah ini dilakukan dengan tetap menjaga kerukunan umat beragama, tidak mengganggu ketentraman dan ketertiban umum, serta mematuhi peraturan perundang-undangan. Apabila keperluan nyata bagi pelayanan umat beragama di wilayah kelurahan/desa tidak terpenuhi, maka pertimbangan komposisi jumlah penduduk digunakan batas wilayah kecamatan atau kabupaten/kota/provinsi.
