(12/4/2011)

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has promised that Bhisama or Bali-Hindu Religious Dogma can not be excised from the Bali provincial zoning regulations (RTRWP).

As reported by Beritabali.com, Pastika says that after a long period of debate by legislators and regencies, all that remains to be done now is for the new zoning law to implemented and enforced.

Pastika views the application of Bhisama to sacred areas surrounding Balinese temples as essential as a point of  fundamental respect to Balinese culture.

“It (the new zoning law) has undergone a material test; its been brought before the Supreme Court; and before that it was verified by the Department of Interior, Ministry of Forestry and Ministry of Public Works. At a minimum, the law has already been verified by three ministries and the Supreme Court – all without issue,” proclaimed Pastika.

Pastika said he hoped the people of Bali were not upset by the efforts in some circles who tried to revise the RTRWP.

On its way to implementation, the new zoning law championed by Bali’s governor encountered strong resistance from Bali's regents and mayors who were reluctant to submit to a provincial law or surrender their right to grant easements and exemptions to specific points of provincial zoning legislation. Under the new law, regents and administrator found guilty of trying to circumvent the new zoning law can face up to five years imprisonment.

With strong and very vocal support from religious and traditional groups in Bali, the law is now a legal certainty.
