Now currently still ongoing an investigation by the regional police,” said Pasuruan Police Chief, Assistant Commissioner of Police Muhammad Aldian, Saturday (08/04/2017), cited from detik.
Prosperous Justice Party also already give a confirmation that Muhammad Nadir Umar is a member of their political party and also a member of Assembly at Provincial / Regional at Pasuruan Regency 2014-2019 periode.
Detachment 88 caught him because he allegedly involved with a group of notorious terorist, ISIS, around 15.21 WIB, Saturday 8 April 2017. “He questioned about his involvement with terrorists that being captured in Lamongan few days ago,” said Head of Public Relations of East Java Regional Police, Commissioner Frans Barung Mangera, Sunday (9/4/2017), cited from kompas.
Before being captured by the Indonesian police, Umar is deported from Turkey through Malaysia with the member of Forum Dakwah Nusantara (FDN) Budi Mastur. According to the police interrogation, it is know that, they attempted to enter Suriah from Turkey and they also want to deliver a humanitarian relief mission from Quari Umah Foundation for refugees in Turkey and Lebanon.
But further investigation, police said that, Umar do not have a connection or involvement with the ISIS, because of that, the police release him after a full investigation, Monday (10/4/2017).
A lesson to learn
Although Umar himself is not a terrorist, but the allegation of member Assembly at Provincial / Regional who also involved with a group of notorious terorist, is mind blowing. As Assembly at Provincial/
Regional he hold a legislative authority and also a law making authority, because of that, to think someone who hold that much of power is a terrorist, is really disturbing. Imagine if a terrorist group can infiltrate this institution or other legislative institution?
Because of that, this allegation set as reminder that there is a change for terrorist to infiltrate a government institution. In Democracy, everyone can became a leader or a legislative as long as they join a party and having enough vote. Even the devil himself can became a leader as long as he have enough vote. Remember Hitler? He became the leader of Germany through an election, his NAZI party won the Germany election.
Prosperous Justice Party and Terrorist
As a Islamic Political Party in Indonesia, Prosperous Justice Party is well-known for holding a conservative Islamic values. Those conservative value is can be a gateway for Islamic hard-liners to joining the party. The ideological similarity between Prosperous Justice Party and Islamic hard-liners, are making more them frail to be infiltrated by a terrorist group, in order for them to use them as their tools.
Thus has been proven by the history of the party itself, few years ago, a politician and an ex-Assembly at Provincial/Regional from Prosperous Justice Party Drs Anugerah MM is know to have a connection with terrorist as he is a big brother of Mohamad Syahrir (Aing) and Ustadz Syaifudin Zuhri bin Djaelani Irsyad (Udin), two of the terrorists that involve in JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton bombing in 2009.
