Islamic oganization LDII condemns bomb atAttack on Pakistan hotel

The Indonesian Islamic Propagation Institute (LDII) on Sunday condemned the suspected suicide car bomb attack on the Marriott Hotel in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad that killed more than 40 people on Saturday.

“Not only non-Muslims but also Muslims in the country fell victim to the bomb attack. This is fasting month. The perpetrators of the bomb attack must respect it and refrain from committing a crime that claims the lives of other people. The bomb attack is certainly not the act of a Muslim,” LDII Chairman Prasetyo Sunaryo said.

Press reports said at least 43 people were killed and about 250 others injured in the bomb attack. A number of buildings near the scene also caught fire after the blast. The blast came a few hours after Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari delivered his first speech before lawmakers at the parliament building located hundreds of meters from the scene.

A number of Islamic mass organizations in Indonesia alleged that foreign parties had tried to disrupt harmony among adherents of different faiths, particularly between Muslims and non-Muslims in the world.

“We, Muslims, must always keep watch for any attempt by foreign parties who try to disrupt harmony among adherents of different faiths. That is why we call on religious adherents in Indonesia to be united so we cannot easily be pitted one against the other,” he said. (*) (

Exclusivity is not our doctrine: LDII

Leaders of the Indonesian Institute of Islamic Propagation (LDII) said that exclusivity was not part of their doctrine as suggested by a table published in The Jakarta Post on Thursday.

Such a perception would likely stem, among other things, from behavior displayed by organization members “whose understanding of the teachings has not matured,” one of the leaders said when visiting the Post on Friday, along with other board members.

“It is such members who we are educating,” said Aceng Karimulloh, a deputy LDII Jakarta branch leader and among the ulema from the organization. LDII chairman Teddy Suratmaji, an engineer, said such a misperception could have resulted from the “stigma” contributed by members of Islam Jamaah, an exclusivist and hard-line movement well known in the late 1970s, which later developed into the LDII. Islam Jamaah was closely scrutinized by the government following reports that its followers considered non-members as infidel or kafir, even though they were from the same family.

Nowadays, the LDII organization, which is legal, “has no connection” with Islam Jamaah, according to its official handbook. Information on LDII can also be viewed at The handbook addresses all “frequently asked questions” related to perceptions of Islam Jamaah and LDII.

Teddy displayed pictures of LDII’s activities in their bimonthly magazine, Nuansa Persada, which depicted its interaction with various Islamic groups, “which could not be possible if we were exclusivist,” Teddy said, denying that they did not pray with non-members.

Nor it was true that each member must pay 10 percent of their income to the imam, they said. Perceptions that LDII members consider non-members as
filth (najis) was also denied. “In the 1970s, it was commonly accepted that people of different sexes who were not muhrim (directly related) could not touch each other,” board member R. Sabaruddin said, “so maybe people got the idea that non-members were considered najis. But now this practice is “common” among many Muslims in the country.

The logo of LDII, which claims to be independent, clearly bears the banyan tree, symbol of former president Soeharto’s political vehicle Golkar, which sought all potential avenues to increase its control and influence. They said that they had intended to change the logo, but faced resistance from older members. (
