It is widely assumed that the Indonesian nation would again face a socially divided situation in the run-up to national political parties, particularly the 2024 Presidential Election. Hate speech, insults, ridicule, defamation, derision, and bullying will once again fill public spaces. Supporters of each presidential candidate in the 2024 presidential election will utilize the internet and social media to attack one other and express their social sarcasm and political enmity, just as they did in the previous election eras of 2014 and 2019. Law enforcement officers will again face severe issues and dilemmas amid this split social context. This research aims to define and map the challenges and complexities of law enforcement and human rights issues in a time of societal differences while also making a tentative suggestion from the standpoint of Islamic Shari'ah.
