Abstract

Artikel ini membahas tentang konflik dan kerukunan antarumat beragama di kecamatan Grabag Kabupaten Magelang. Beberapa tahun yang lalu wilayah ini pernah mengalami konflik antar dan inter umat beragama. Konflik tersebut tidak sampai menimbulkan kekerasan dan kerusuhan dalam skala besar, dan dapat teratasi. Hingga saat ini kondisi masyarakat dalam keadaan damai, hal ini di antaranya disebabkan oleh peran agama dan tradisi lokal yang mampu menjadi perekat kerukunan umat beragama. Penelitian ini dilakukan dengan pendekatan kualitatif di tiga desa di Kecamatan Grabag meliputi desa Grabag, desa Losari dan desa Ngrancah. Hasil penelitian menunjukkan bahwa perayaan nyadran, merti desa dan
genduranan merupakan tempat “terbuka” bagi masyarakat tanpa membedakan latar belakang agama tanpa ada diskriminasi dan ekslusi. Dalam kegiatan tersebut, setiap warga mempunyai kesempatan untuk bertemu dan berinteraksi dengan warga lainnya. Interaksi tersebut telah menjadi salah satu faktor terbentuknya kohesi sosial, disamping faktor prinsip dan norma agama yang dijalankan oleh masyarakat. Kerukunan umat beragama terbentuk.
