Linguistic Rights in Indonesia are individual human and civic rights. This means every citizen can use Indonesian for the public good. English as a second language changed this perception. This threatens the country's language nuances. Socio-Legal Research is used. Socio-Legal Study uncovers false closes that can alter the law and extra-legal factors or assumptions in purportedly neutral legal reasoning. Linguistic rights are vital for protecting minority rights, minimising conflict, and fostering an equal, politically stable, and socially harmonious community. Linguistic rights are sometimes linked to secessionist movements or seen as challenges to national unity. In mixed societies, linguistic rights can cause conflict. How well someone understands socio-cultural language use determines a language's durability. Identity depends on it. UNESCO resolved to recognise language preservation in socio-cultural culture. Cultural diversity is a source of interchange, invention, and creativity, much as biodiversity is for nature. It should be protected for present and future generations as a human right.
