Penganiayaan terhadap Jemaat Ahmadiyah Indonesia terus berlanjut karena otoritas keagamaan menyerukan agar dibubarkan

Organisasi yang dipandang sebagai pemegang otoritas keagamaan tertinggi Majlis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) telah menyerahkan apa yang disebutnya sebagai ‘fatwa’ terhadap Jamaah Ahmadiyah kepada kantor Kejaksaan Agung. MUI telah menyerukan agar Jamaah Ahmadiyah di larang sama sekali di Indonesia.

Ketua MUI bertaka, “Kami berharap menyelesaikan persoalan ini untuk selamanya dengan cara melarang aliran ini.” Ia selanjutnya berkata bahwa Jamaah Ahmadiyah jangan menyatakan diri sebagai Muslim.

Asisten Jaksa Agung menyatakan bahwa keputusan akan diambil melalui rapat yang akan diadakan minggu ini. Sehubungan dengan ini Sekretaris Pres Jemaat Ahmadiyah, Abid Khan menanggapi:

Kami mendesak kantor Kejaksaan Agung agar menolak ‘fatwa’ terhadap Jemaah Ahmadiyah itu. Jika diluluskan keputusan itu akan menjadi tanda bagi dihapusnya jaminan kebebasan bagi kelompok-kelompok minoritas baik oleh konstitusi Negara maupun konvensi internasional yang Indonesia sendiri tergabung di dalamnya.

Jamaah Ahmadiyah tidak berniat menyakiti siapapun dan hanya mengharapkan agar para anggotanya dapat beribadah dengan aman dan tenang.”

Keberatan utama MUI adalah bahwa Jamaah Ahmadiyah tidak mempercayai Rasul Suci Muhammad SAW sebagai Nabi terakhir. Menjelaskan pendirian Ahmadiyah yang sesungguhnya, Abid Khan berkata:

“Rasul Suci Muhammad SAW adalah Nabi yang paling mulia adan pembawa syariat terakhir. Nabi yang datang sesudah beliau haruslah dari kalangan pengikut beliau sendiri dan tunduk kepada beliau. Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, Pendiri Jamaah Ahmadiyah, kedudukannya adalah seperti itu, yang kami yakini diutus oleh Allah untuk menegakkan kembali ajaran-ajaran Islam yang damai sebagaimaan diajarkan oleh Rasul Suci Muhammad SAW.”

Selama beberapa bulan terakhir ini Jamaah Ahmadiyah di Indonesia telah menjadi korban penganiayaan. Para anggotanya telah diserang, ada yang dipaksa meninggalkan rumahnya dan beebrapa masjid telah dirusak. Jika kantor Kejaksaan Agung meluluskan hukum yang diusulkan itu maka tidak diragukan lagi ini akan menambah satu pengesahan Pemerintah atas kekerasan yagn terjadi baru-baru ini dan para anggota Jemaat Ahmadiyah akan menghadapi resiko serangan yang lebih bengis lagi.

PRESS RELEASE

Persecution of Ahmadiyya Community Indonesia continues as religious authority calls for it to be banned

The organisation regarded as Indonesia’s highest religious authority the Majlis Ulema Indonesia (MUI) has submitted what it calls a ‘Fatwa’ against the Ahmadiyya Community in the Office of the Attorney-General. The MUI has called for the Ahmadiyya Community to be completely banned from the country.

The Head of the MUI has said ‘We hope to settle the matter once and for all by getting the group banned.[1] He went onto say that the Ahmadiyya Community should not regard themselves as Muslim.

The Assistant Attorney-General has stated that a decision would be made next week at a meeting to be held by his Office. In relation to this the Press Secretary of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at Abid Khan has said:

“We urge the Office of the Attorney-General to reject the so called ‘Fatwa’ against the Ahmadiyya Community. If allowed the decision would signal the end for the freedoms guaranteed to minority groups under both the State Constitution and the International Conventions that Indonesia is party to.

The Ahmadiyya Community wishes no harm to anyone and simply desires that its members are able to practice their faith in a safe and peaceful environment.”

The main objection of the MUI is that the Ahmadiyya Community does not believe the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to be the last Prophet. Clarifying the Ahmadiyya Community’s position on this matter, Abid Khan said:

“The Holy Prophet Muhammad was the greatest of all Prophets and the final law bearing prophet. Any Prophet who comes after him must be from amongst his believers and subservient. Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, was such a person, who we believe was sent by God to re-establish the true peaceful teachings of Islam as taught by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).”

Over the past months the Ahmadiyya Community in Indonesia has been subjected to severe persecution. Members of the Community have been attacked, others have been forced to leave their homes and Mosques have been destroyed. If the Attorney-General’s Office passes the proposed law then this would no doubt add a stamp of Government approval to the atrocities that have recently occurred and members of the Ahmadiyya Community would be at severe risk of further attacks.
