"HTI's ideology is incompatible with Indonesia's unitary state concept (NKRI)," Kalla said in Jakarta on Tuesday.

Coordinating Minister of Political, Legal and Security Affairs Wiranto proposed the disbandment of the pro-caliphate group on Monday.

"HTI's activities contradict Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution," Wiranto said.

"HTI's activities threaten public order and national unity," he added.

Hizb ut-Tahrir has been banned in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Turkey and many other countries.
