Tyrannic! Police Welcomes Ramadhan By Detaining Ustadz Abu
15 August 2010
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
this country want to become? Truly an act of tyrants.
Instead of approaching the ulama's
and doing good deeds, the POLRI (Police of Republic of
Indonesia - ed) are welcoming the month of Ramadhan by
arresting an ulama'
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba’asyir, Monday (9/8). Is the
classic allegations related to terrorism addressed
again to this figure who nurtures the Al-Mukmin Ngruki
Ponpes (Islamic Boarding School)? The Police
Headquarters are still stingy to share the
Masha Allah. Tyranny is again hitting this
country. Approaching the month of Ramadhan, the
ulama' of tawheed who is known to be
doing da'wah tirelessly, Ustadz Abu Bakar
Ba’asyir, is reportedly being re-arrested, Monday
(9/8). This is as disclosed by the public information
sector of the Police Headquarters, Kombes Marwoto
“True, Ba’asyir has been arrested,”
According to Marwoto, Ba’asyir was arrested because of
terrorism-related cases. However, in which cases of
terrorism and to what extent is the involvement of
this caregiver of the Islamic boarding school, Mr.
Marwoto was still stingy to share the information.
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba’asyir who is also the Amir
of the Jama’ah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT) have
long been the target of his enemies, especially
America which does not want Islam to rise in this
country. Various ways had been attempted to throw
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba’asyir back into prison, including
linking him with terrorist activities.
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba’asyir was arrested by the police
while in Banjar Patroman, Ciamis, West Java. He was
arrested after conducting a lecture session in Tasik
Malaya. Until now Kombes Marwoto is still not ready to
explain the reasons for the arrest of Ustadz Abu Bakar
Ba’asyir . Kombes Marwoto only agreed that Ustadz Abu
Bakar Ba’asyir was arrested for terrorism-related
cases and promised that there will be a press
conference in the afternoon.
Were Also Detained In The Arrest Of Ustadz Abu Bakar
As previously reported, the arrest in Banjar did not
only arrest Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir. Two other
akhwats were also arrested along with the Ustadz.
According to the information obtained by Muslimdaily
through Afif Abdul Majid in between the interrupted
meetings of the Jamaah Ansharut Tauhid,
Monday (9/08/10), in the arrest of Ustadz Abu, also
arrested were the wife of Ustadz Abu - Aisyah Baraja-
and the wife of Ustadz Wahyuddin - Muslihah- (Director
of Ponpes Al Mukmin Ngruki).
Besides that, also arrested along with the three of
them were the bodyguard of Ustadz Abu -Widodo- and the
car driver of the entourage– Sartono. The five persons
still detained by the POLRI are yet to be confirmed in
terms of their conditions and legal status.
The last contact between Widodo - the bodyguard of
Ustadz Abu- and the Headquarters of JAT in Solo,
mentioned that an arrest of their party had been
taking place in Banjar. After that last contact,
Widodo's handphone could not be contacted anymore.
Information from the source of JAT also mentioned that
there were contacts between Ustadz Abu and the JAT
Headquarters in Solo,which exchanged informations
about the planned arrest of Ustadz Abu, while he was
still conducting the lecture session in Tasikmalaya.
Ustadz Abu's entourage had also sent a message
regarding the presence of terror from the apparatuses
of the Densus 88 when Ustadz was still in Tasikmalaya.
There were about 20 members of the Densus 88, ready to
"Never mind, we keep on moving. Do not be afraid
of humans. We just put our tawakkal to Allah,"
the source of Muslimdaily imitated the speech of
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir.
In The Arrest of Ustadz Abu
Bakar Ba’asyir, The Police Smashed The Car Windshield
Not much different from the arrest of Ustadz Abu Bakar
Ba’asyir in 2003, while he was ying ill in the PKU
Muhammadiyah Hospital, Solo, the arrest of Ustadz Abu
this time was also performed with violence and
smashing of glasses.
The source of JAT mentioned that the car of Ustadz Abu
had its windshield smashed by the apparatuses of the
Densus 88. According to the source, there is a
possibility that the windshield was broken because
Ustadz Abu did want to surrender himself just like
In 2003, Ustadz Abu was forcibly dragged from the
hospital ward by the police after having broken the
glass door of Ustadz Abu's ward room.
The smashing of the glass door in 2003 in the efforts
to arrest Ustadz Abu in the PKU Muhammadiyah Hospital,
had caused casualties on the santris
(religious students) who were holding out inside the
ward room. However, it still could not be confirmed
whether there are victims in the smashing of the
windshield of the car carrying Ustadz Abu and his
entourage this time.
Abdul Rochim Ba'asyir Denounces
The Arrest Of Both Parents
Abdul Rochim Ba'asyir as the
party representing the family, in his press statement
held this afternoon in the office of JAT in Solo,
strongly condemned the actions of the police in
arresting both his father and mother.
Ustadz Abdul Rochim who is also a staff in the faculty
of Al-Mukmin Ngruki Ponpes, deplores the arrest of
Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir because his father was not a
DPO (listed wanted person - ed). He also deplores the
way the arrest was made, why should the process be
made on the road, why did not they try to settle it at
home, in a more civilized manner.
This youngest son of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir also
said that the cruel treatment done by the Police would
reduce the credibility of the police.
He as the representative of the family appealed so
that both of his parents would be immediately
released. Beside arresting Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir
as his father, the police are also detaining his
mother. "My mother is already old, my mother does
not know anything, why did she has to be taken in a
thuggery manner?" Ustadz Abdul Rochim questioned.
He continued that for subsequent matters relating to
the arrest of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, it would be
handed over to the TPM (Team of Muslim Lawyers) ) in
order to be able to proceed with the process
thoroughly and legally. Meanwhile, for the health
concerns of the Ustadz along with his wife, it is
handed over to the MER-C and Dr. Jose Rizal, in order
for both of their health to be monitored.
Ustadz Abdul Rochim hopes that the POLRI would free
both his parents, especially his mother. Because, his
mother is already old with an already declining
May Allah bring relief to his family and give
strength, as well as bringing back the Izzah
of the Muslims in this world. Allahu Akbar!
