Between Gayus And Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir: The IslamoPhobia of the Apparatuses

12 December 2010

By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahdiun

The news about Gayus Tambunan, a corruption case prisoner, escaping from custody at Mako Brimob is shocking this republic. Why not, the prison of the Brimob Command HQ is known as a high security prison, but lately this status is fading away when the suspected corruptor, Gayus Tambunan, was free to roam out of jail to enjoy a holiday in Bali. Not long after that, Gayus was soon taken back to jail, he was not alone but invited along a police officer who helped him to escape.

This position contrasts with Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir. He is a charismatic ulama' in this country, who is known to have no "protective screens" in delivering da'wah. Since the New Order, he is an ulama' who had very firmly and courageously opposed the application of the Pancasila as the unique philosophy of the state (an ideology manipulated by the authoritarian regime of Suharto), until at some point in the Newest Order (referred to by some people as Reformed Order) that unique philosophy of the state was finally revoked. If we look right, it was actually Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir who, from the beginning, struggled against the unique philosophy of the state of Pancasila, which had caused him to be frequently thrown in and out jail. But what form of recognition is given in return by the government to these elderly ulama'? Prison! Yes, that's what he is feeling in his own native country.

When compared to Gayus, there are some things which are very ironic, discriminative and tyrannical in the conducts of the rulers of this country on Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir who is currently detained in the Bareskrim (Criminal Investigation Agency) of the POLRI (Police of Republic of Indonesia) Main HQ.

Firstly, before the arrest of Gayus Tambunan, the POLRI had repeatedly sent summons letters to him. This summons is a standard police procedure against the people who are to be investigated on a case. When the person going to be investigated does not turn up, then the police will usually make him as a DPO (wanted person), who has to be arrested.

Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, until the time he was arrested, was never given a letter of summons by the police. Whereas, Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir had many times said that he was ready to be called to the police stations at any time. And until the last moment of his arrest, Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir was never included in the police wanted list at all.

Secondly, Gayus Tambunan was arrested because of a disgraceful case that violates the religious rules, as well as the rules of the State. The corruption case of Gayus has reputedly caused the state to lose up to billions, or even trillions of rupiah.

While, Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir was arrested precisely because of carrying out religious orders, and it was laden with the interests of America.

The activities of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir all this time was no other than conducting da'wah to the Islamic ummah, anywhere, starting from the state leaders to the ordinary people, for the implementation of the Islamic Shari'a in Indonesia. Why? Because this Muslim majority country should see the independence as a gift from Allah and they should be grateful for it by administrating the country with the Islamic system, not a secular system of democracy that is contrary to Islam.

The accusation which once was hurled at him, that he is connected to a series of bombings, was also never proven at all.

Next is the evidence of the existence of American interests. Since the first arrest of Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, it had been expressed by an envoy of the White House named Tom Ridge during the time of Megawati's administration. Tom, without hesitation flatly put across the message of America. The content of which was, "Abu Bakar Baasyir must be brought to trial in a different way." The speech was itself explicated by Frederick Burks, the language translator, who at that time was used by Tom in a meeting with a Mega in the District Court, South Jakarta.

If in the era of Megawati, where SBY became the Minister of Law and Security Policy Coordinator, when he was on a visit to America in 2003, he stated, "I love the United State, with all its faults. I consider it my second country." And today it is possible that SBY has proven his words, by arresting Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, using the charges of "terrorism", in the interval of only two days after he vented that he was receiving terror threats.

Thirdly, the arrest of Gayus was more honourable than the arrest Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, whereas Ustadz Abu is an ulama' and Gayus is no more than a thief of the public money. "Gayus was intercepted in Malaysia before being brought to Indonesia, but when Ba'asyir was arrested it was similar to the attack on Mavi Marmara ship by the Israeli military." This had been disclosed by Ustadz Abdurrahman, the Kathib of Jama'ah Ansharut Tauhid (JAT).

Fourthly, while in custody, Gayus Tambunan can freely go in and out of prison. Just imagine, from the data obtained, it had been 19 times that Gayus went in and out of prison in August and September 2010, as many as 24 times in October 2010 and so far in this November, Gayus had already been out of the detention centre as many as two times.

Whereas, as for Ustadz Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, he is even prohibited to perform acts of ibaadah. From the ‘Eidul Fitri prayer to 'Eiddul Adha, he was never allowed at all to pray outside. So repressive are the conducts of the police of this country, to the extent of prohibiting the most fundamental human right i.e. ibaadah. Where is the constitution of this country which they say guarantees the freedom of worship, have the contents of the article been deleted???

Thus were the discriminatory and oppressive treatments by the rulers of this secular country on an elderly ulama'. And surely Allah would not just stand aside when his slaves are oppressed. As a proof, Allah keeps on exposing the depravity of this country's law enforcement institutions. Starting from the discovery of the cases of judicial and tax Mafia through Gayus, and then the case of the fat bank accounts of the POLRI at the end of the office term of Bambang Hendarso Danuri, to the recent bribery case of Gayus at Mako Brimob when it was only a few days after Timur Pradopo served as the new Chief of Police. If the law enforcement institutions continue to arbitrarily punish the ulama's and mujahids, just wait, what other humiliation and adzab would be inflicted on the oppressive institutions of this country! 

Latest Condition Of Ustadz Aman 

What's the latest news and condition with regards to Ustadz Aman Abdurrahman (may Allah SWT free him) in prison? According to a reliable information, Ustadz Aman at this time is being increasingly oppressed! He has been transferred to a cell in which the height is only about the level of a person in ruku' (in solat). Is this so? How can this be let to happen to a Muwwahid Muslim?

Letter From Behind The Iron Bars

Before the information about the increasing oppression of Ustadz Aman circulated, a letter from behind the iron bars had already been circulating in the cyber world. The letter was believed to be from Ustadz Aman, reporting about his latest condition when his cell was transferred.

The IslamoPhobia of the Apparatuses

Why does Ustadz Aman has to move cell often and be isolated? The fear of the truth (Islam) is the main reason why Ustadz Aman has to endure isolations to this day. The governmental apparatuses are worried that Ustadz Aman, the struggler of tawheed, would continue to provide spiritual recharge to other detainees.

In his footnote, Ustadz Aman stated:

While at the Reskrim (Criminal Investigation Bureau of police), the Densus 88 ordered that I be transferred to the Narkoba (confinement for Drugs cases) , because at the Reskrim, I could fill in the time with ta'lim for the brothers there, whereas the Densus 88 does not like it. At Narkoba, though alone in the cell and unable to conduct ta'lim, some ikhwans, though infrequent, like to send me questions on paper, and even that does not escape the observation of the Densus 88 who have agents amongst the prisoner ikhwans who reported that correspondence to the Densus 88 that I was conducting ta'lim through paper, and the Densus 88 have also often cautioned the ikhwans to not be near or chat with me because I am "dangerous" or "his mind is too extreme", so they say. However, the ikhwans like to go against and show an attitude of indifference to those admonitions. Therefore, the only way which is right according to them is to keep me away from the ikhwans by means of isolation, and with it they are reaping the manifold of adzab (punishment) for their kufr and the hindering of others from the way of Allah.

الَّذِينَ كَفَرُواْ وَصَدُّواْ عَن سَبِيلِ اللّهِ زِدْنَاهُمْ عَذَابًا فَوْقَ الْعَذَابِ بِمَا كَانُواْ يُفْسِدُونَ

"Those who disbelieved and averted [others] from the way of Allah – We will increase them in punishment over [their] punishment for what corruption they were causing." [An-Nahl: 88]

They plot, and Allah answers their plots, while victory is certainly with Allah Ta'ala…

O Allah give goodness to this slave of Yours and make this self as the cause for many people to obtain hidayah from You…

Is the latest information about the condition of Ustadz Aman, i.e. he is placed inside a ‘barbaric' cell (the level of a person in ruku'), true? The Ummah must care and immediately check the truth of this information!
