should not have been done. In his opinion, an oath taken in the name of God cannot be verified to know the intent of the person taking the oath.
Bagir said that religious oaths have been takenÂ in a number of countries, especially during the inauguration of a state official, such as a president or prime minister. â€œEven in France which is a secular country, inauguration of its officials is still conducted based on the practices of the main religion,â€ he said.
Meanwhile, Suhadi Cholil, a CRCS researcher, proposed that officials who are indicated to have been involved in a legal case should not take the religious oath, but the legal oath. â€œTaking an oath in the name of God cannot be verified and it may not be done seriously, so there is no way to verify it,â€ he said.
