31 December 2010
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
Injustices on the
Muslims continue to be displayed by the government.
This time Ustadz Aman Abdurrahman and 8 Aceh Mujahids
are experiencing it. Ustadz Aman is sentenced to 9
tears in prison and eight Aceh Mujahids are sentenced
to 9 years in prison just because they were practicing
one of the requirement of the Islamic
(military exercise) in Aceh. When will this oppression
against Muslims end?
Imprisonment For An Ustadz
Ustadz Aman is known as a dai'e who is active
in da'wah. But now Ustadz Aman is charged as
being involved in the armed training (I'dad)
in Aceh and ended up being sentenced to nine years in
jail by the judges of the District Court of West
Jakarta, Monday (20-12-2010). According to the judge,
Ustadz Aman is proven to have assisted in the military
training or I'dad which was held in the
mountains of Jalin Jantho, Aceh Besar, Nanggroe Aceh
Darussalam, in 2009.
Ustadz Aman earlier was to be prosecuted for 12 years
imprisonment by the prosecutor. He was charged as
guilty for violating article 13 letter (a) Laws on
Terrorism. Responding to the decision of the judges,
Ustadz Aman states that he does not accept the
verdict. However, he would not filed an appeal against
"I do not accept this judgment," he said.
Last week, Ustadz Aman instead have written a defense
letter entitled "The Gulty One Is Fir'aun, Not Us." In
that of his defense, it is described in detail the
tyranny of Fir'aun and the cruelties that he did along
with his security apparatuses in quelling the
tawheed da'wah of Prophet Musa AS.
The trial verdict was filled up with the ikhwans,
the supporters of Ustadz Aman. They cried out the
takbeer in every opportunity, whether in the
beginning or the end of the session. The ikhwans
were not satisfied with the sentence given to Ustadz
Aman and considered the verdict as an injustice.
Mujahids Sentenced To 12 Years In Jail
Meanwhile, other injustices fall
upon 8 Aceh Mujahids. Only because of conducting a
'military exercise' alias I'dad they are
sentenced to 12 years in jail. Cruel! The prosecutors
assessed that the defendants were involved in the
military training in Aceh. The defendants raised their
objections for the prosecution.
The eight defendants were threatened with article 15
jo. article 9 Law No 15/2003 about Terrorism Crime
Acts. Things which incriminate the accused are their
acts which are disturbing the society. While things
which relieve them are the polite behavior, the fact
that they have never been convicted and the confession
for their acts.
The eight accused are Laode Afif alias Hafis alias
Hadid, Mukhtar Khairi alias Umar Bin Fasihin, Masykur
Rahmat bin Mahmud, Muchsin Kamal alias Zulkifli, Surya
Achda alias Abu Semak Belukar, Hasbuddin alias Abu
Azzam, Deni Sulaiman alias Sule, Rahmadi Nowo Kuncoro
alias Usyak As Syahid.
From the hands of the defendant are seized evidences
in the form of 1 AK-47 gun, 312 bullets, 2 M-16 guns,
1 telescope, 1 Bali Bombing Jiahd CD and 1
military-style khameez outfit.
On the demands of the JPU (public prosecutors), the
defendants through their legal counsel, Musliman N,
will lodge a defense, "we will make a plea,"
Ya Rabbi... when will these injustices on the
