The reputation of Indonesia as a multicultural country has been recently debated, owing to the persecutions and attacks on members of Islamic minority Shiite and Ahmadiyya. The aim of this study was to examine the members of Muslim majority’s tolerance for Shi’a and Ahmadis and their support for governmental helping dedicated to these religious minority groups. Results (N= 384) demonstrated that minority helping was directly predicted by tolerance, which also mediated the effects of multiculturalism and continuation threat on the helping. We also predicted and found that national identification directly predicted multiculturalism and continuation threat, and these latter variables mediated the effect of the former variable on tolerance and minority helping. We discussed findings in this study in terms of both theoretical and practical implications.
