SOLO (Jurnalislam.com) – Dozens of Students who are members of the Youth and Student Alliance of Soloraya (APMS) held a rally at Roundabout Gladak, Jalan Slamet Riyadi, Solo, Sunday (16/7/2107). They rejected the issue of Perppu No. 2 year 2017 on Community Organization (CBOs).

One orator, Yusuf Santoso from the University of Sebelas Maret (UNS) said that the Perppu can be used by the government to forcibly dissolve mass organizations that are not in line with the government.

“The Perppu is in addition has fundamental grounds for publication, it is also very subjective and can only be published if there is a compelling interest, and there will be a lot of mass organizations that will be dissolved and this eliminates the presumption of innocence,” Yusuf said in his oration.

Yusuf assesses that the government’s policy of issuing the legislation proves that the regime is getting more and more refractive towards Muslims and tends to dictatorship

“Then why is he saying this country is democratic. This leads most to the refractive and dictatorial regimes, which are wrapped with democratic faces. A democratic that claims democracy, but its behavior does not reflect the democratic definition of a leader’s ruler, “he said.

Through the Perppu, Yusuf continued, the mass organizations were only given one chance to make further efforts if the court’s decision to grant the prosecutor’s request to revoke the status of the legal body of the organization.

“After just one week can be disbanded immediately, this is very oppressive when once very refrensive,” he said.

Yusuf also denied allegations that Islamic mass organizations are anti-Pancasila mass organizations, anti-NKRI and anti-diversity.

“The pinned allegations are very subjective, and (Perppu-ed) that, can be interpreted by certain parties that later could be rubber articles depending on who has these interests,” he concluded.
