The data of the study are texts on radicalism collected from social media. The analysis of the data is based on Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) perspective. The result of the study suggests that the meanings of the texts on radicalism in contemporary Indonesia are influenced by the context of situation and the context of culture as well as the ideology stance behind the texts.
