National Movement of Indonesian Ulema Council Edict Supporters (GNPF MUI)
PEACEFUL ACTION OF DEFENDING ISLAM
“Uphold Justice through Rule of Law”
Early wrath of Muslims was sourced from the statement of the Jakarta Governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama in Seribu Island district on Tuesday, September 27, 2016. Basuki was obviously insulted and harassed the one verse of Al Qur’an by saying “… So, you should not believe with those peoples, in your deepest heart you may think that you cannot vote me. They have lied by using Al Maidah 51, and kind of that. It is your right. So if you think that you cannot vote me because you are afraid of going to hell, so they have fool”.
Basuki has debasing Al Qur’an, harassed ulema, and insulted Muslims. They did not accept that Al Qur’an was humiliated. That triggers the Action of Defending Al Qur’an by strong warning to the National Police and the President to seriously take action on the case of religion defamation. If within three weeks the blasphemy actor not punished, then there will be held the large-scale action of Muslims, on Friday, November 4, 2016. However, this warning didn’t respond that gratify a sense of justice the publics.
Even though the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) has issued a fatwa that Basuki’s statement is a religion defamation which prohibited under Indonesian law. The Action of Defending Al Qur’an cannot unstoppable. Tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of Muslims from remote area of Indonesia, Java, Sumatra, Sulawesi, Kalimantan, Maluku, and West Nusa Tenggara are ready to participate in the Action of Defending Al Qur’an in front of State Palace, Jakarta, Indonesia’s capital.
National Movement of Indonesian Ulema Council Edict Supporters (GNPF MUI) is a movement that aimed to enforce the law of the blasphemy actor that has been done by Jakarta Governor, Basuki Tjahaja Purnama alias Ahok. This movement has not organizationally linked with Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).
GNPF-MUI is a NON POLITICAL movement which became as locomotive movement of the Peaceful Action of Defending Islam on November 4, 2016 that demand Jakarta Governor who has debasing Islam should be arrested for the sake of enforcing rule of law in Indonesia and for sense of justice to Muslims throughout Indonesia who were very disappointed with his statement.
And we also affirm that this movement is not against Christian, or against Chinese, or against the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) and against Unity in Diversity (Bhinneka Tunggal Ika), but this movement demands to enforce the law against the insulter of Al Qur’an and Ulema.
To the President Jokowi, GNPF-MUI demands to be fair and not protecting Ahok which obviously insulted religion and not see the Peaceful Action of Defending Islam issue as something to be worried and will tend to the People Power. To the National Police, they should not do repressive towards the Peaceful Action of Defending Islam and not stop Muslims that come from throughout Indonesia.
The Peaceful Action of Defending Islam will be started from Istiqlal mosque after Friday prayers through East Medan Merdeka to the South Medan Merdeka, and then to the West Medan Merdeka then to do oration in front of the State Palace.
To the participant, GNPF-MUI urges do not bring sharp weapon and do not do anarchy action, not damage public facilities, and maintain order and cleanliness. We also recommend them to bring garbage plastic bag, mineral water, prayer tools, umbrella and personal medicine. If there is any violence action and damaging public facilities then that is not from GNPF-MUI side, so the National Police can take the action according the law.
To the Muslims in Jakarta, GNPF-MUI also urges to take care of their brothers who came from throughout Indonesia who participate in the Peaceful Action of Defending Islam on Friday, November 4, 2016 by providing assistance in consumption, accommodation, and transportation as an expression of ‘ukhuwah islamiyah’ between us.
