Abstract

This article traces the changes in the representation of Islam on Indonesian television before the rise of Islamic themes in the early 2000s. By understanding the televised manifestations of Islam relative to the ruling power within the television system, one can see that as long ago as the 1970s Islamic culture already enjoyed a privileged position in television content. Long before the more recent trend of 'Islamic commodification', state interest and business logic had gradually set precedents for how Islam is manifested in the commercial system today.
