MuslimsPost.Com | Chairman of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI), KH Ma'ruf Amin, urged all Muslims to maintain the unity of the Unitary Republic of Indonesia and maintain Pancasila as the state base.

"In guarding the nation and state, MUI holds that the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) is final. Therefore, Indonesian Muslims must implement Pancasila as the basis of the state. MUI does not tolerate any form of betrayal and ideology, "said Kyai Ma'ruf when giving a speech at the 42nd Milad MUI event at Balai Sarbini, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (26/7/2017)

Kyai Ma'ruf said that many things have been done by MUI in giving a blessing to people and nation. MUI strives to remain istiqamah in keeping the people from all deviations in religious life, nation and state

It is said Kyai Ma'ruf, this national commitment, in MUI's view, Indonesia is a territory of agreement, not Darul Islam, not Darul Kafir and also not Darul Harb (war).

"Muslim and non-Muslim relationships promise to live in peace, mutual love, mutual help, mutual need and help. Therefore, the NKRI is a state of agreement, together with the elements of the nation should be side by side. "

Regarding the implementation of democratic elections in Indonesia, Rais' Aam PBNU emphasizes that there should be harmony between religion and a legitimate leadership system.

"The success of the full sovereign system in the hands of the people is determined by how the legitimate leader's attitude, and between religion and power, are the two main and fundamental pillars of national, religious, and state life," Ma'ruf said.

"We have agreed together in the National Working Meeting of MUI 2016, that the MUI views a change of power that is not in accordance with the constitution will cause a bigger fire that should be prevented," he said.
