PRECISION JOURNAL – The Chairperson of the Muhammadiyah Central Leadership (PP), Haedar Nashir, handed over the discourse on the dissolution of the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) social organization (mass organization) that has recently surfaced in public to the state.
“The state already has a constitution, the state already has laws, the state already has rules, and the state already has the tools,” he said online during a press conference Ahead of Tarjih Muhammadiyah XXXI at the Office PP Muhammadiyah, Yogyakarta, Monday, 23 November 2020.
According to him, the implementation of the constitution, as well as statutory regulations along with the apparatus owned, is entirely the responsibility of the state.
With these various instruments, according to him, the emergence of various actions against the law such as separatist movements, criminal acts, and other movements against the law should become the authority of the state to take action.
“All kinds of action movements that are contrary to the constitution, with legislation, with applicable laws, with applicable regulations and policies, will be returned to the state and all its instruments to carry out their duties and obligations,” he said as quoted by Antara.
According to Haedar, Muhammadiyah and other religious movements have a duty to preach and spread religious values in life so that they do not need to be burdened by matters that have become the responsibility of the state.
“Because of that everything is returned to the state on the basis of constitutional law and regulations as well as practices to carry out its duties and obligations,” he explained.
The urge for the government to disband FPI again came to the fore with the hashtag #BubarkanFPI trending on Twitter, and previously there was also a statement from the Pangdam Jaya Maj. Gen. TNI Dudung Abdurachman who said if necessary FPI is dissolved alone, following a number of activities and violating the rules carried out by these organizations.
