Usamah Hisham: Habib Rizieq's Return Plan Has Been Talked with the President

MUSLIMSPOST.COM | General Chairman of the Indonesian Muslim Brotherhood (Parmusi) H Usamah Hisham claimed that the plan of the return of the High Priest of Indonesian Muslims Habib Rizieq Syihab to the country has been discussed with President Joko Widodo.

Before heading to Madinah at Soekarno-Hatta Airport, Cengkareng, Jakarta, Sunday (24/12) to perform Umrah worship as well as to meet Habib Rizieq Syihab who was in Makkah, Usama, who was initially reluctant to answer the questions of journalists who intercept him, finally open talk.

"I've met the President, I've talked to President three times about the plan to return Habib Rizieq from Saudi Arabia to the country," said Usamah.

Three meetings, said Usamah, were closed at the Merdeka Palace and Bogor Palace on July 27, September 27 and December 7. "I just talked to the President," he said.

A number of meetings, continued Usamah, in order to provide understanding to the President about the spirit of unity and the rise of Muslims since Bela Al Maidah 51 as the reality of the publicity that should be given space by the government, especially the security forces.

"The President should be given input, the actions of the Muslims so far in order to raise the sentence of tawhid, to establish ukhuwah and unity of the Ummah, not to be politicized by certain parties in the Palace circle, as if to overthrow the government," Usamah said.

In addition Usamah discussed three important points that must be resolved by the government as mandated by Habib Rizieq Syihab. But until entering the immigration room of Soetta Airport, Usama, who performed the umroh service with his wife and four sons, reluctantly delivered the three points.

"In essence, criminalization of all Islamic clerics and activists must be stopped immediately," said Usamah

Responding to that, said Usamah, the President admitted very surprised. "Because inside the country is accused of criminalization of ulema, while abroad the President is often asked why Ahok criminalized," said Usamah.

According to this senior journalist, the President claimed never felt and criminalized the cleric. What happens are legal measures that are fully implemented by the security forces. As an executive, the President insists on not going to intervene in the judiciary.

"So the point is still to be built a similar perception between the President and the ulama and activists of the movement of Islam commanded by High Priest Habib Rizieq Syihab in solving all problems.

"It's what we do, it's a process, but pray for God Habib Rizieq to go home without any obstacles," said Usamah, as released by SI Online.
