Statement of Muslimah Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia: Critique on Commemoration of 2014 National Family Day
Indonesian families nowadays are facing serious threats. Being prosperous is far beyond their reach and poverty is everywhere. Data from 2014 BPS (Center for Statistics Bureau) states that at least there are 28.5 million poor people in this nation. One of its effects is the families are losing their function to educate basic values for the generation and it becomes worse since there are many mothers dragged down to work until they lose their main role as educators for their children. Consequently, porn and free sex addicts, nasty video viewers and doers, to victims of pedophilia are grieved facts that happen in their lives. Don’t let our family be ruined!
Indonesian families are supposed to realize the problems occurred in their lives. Various actions done by the government with a paradigm of economy capitalism and liberal democracy have been proven to fail in solving the poverty effect; in fact, they only create new problems. Policy to encourage family planning (KB) is misleading solution that distracts us from the solution of its problem source. In line with that, the policy to solve sexual crime by entering the elementary school curriculum with Reproduction Health Education (Kespro) without eliminating pornography, closing prostitute localization, changing liberal curriculum and creating control from the society are only making the liberal life style getting stronger.
Therefore – once again – broken Indonesian families is the effect of the application of democracy secular and economy liberal system. Thus, making hope to have the solution of many family matters is not enough by depending on the promises of our new leaders. Campaign to present new concept of children protection, City that fits for children, Economy Empowerment and politics for women will not make the problems end. The total solution is to dump secular democracy and economy liberal systems. Save the Future of Indonesian Family!
Dialogue of National Figures who Care of Family held 14 June 2014 in Surabaya is one of media to underline the idea of solving family problems by women figures of various experts from central and many regions in Indonesia. In accordance to it, Muslimah Hizb ut Tahrir Indonesia states:
1. The way to create prosperous Indonesian families is by applying political system of Khilafah Islamiyah and Islamic economy system by replacing democracy and economy liberal system.
2. Khilafah Islamiyah will actualize comprehensive protection system for families. Islamic economy system will make them prosperous, eliminate poverty, guarantee the distribution of income, create work field that is available for men and not give the natural source management to foreign states so the result will be able in giving valuable public service. Khilafah will never do dzalim programs such as economy empowerment, permanent contraception like female and male sterilization, prohibition to have early marriage etc.
3. Khilafah will also be independent in determining nature of education curriculum and giving proper asset for parents to educate the generation. Khilafah will diminish thoroughly pornography-action, prostitution, alcoholic drinks, drugs distribution and it will be protector from attack of destructive foreign paradigm and culture.
4. Khilafah will apply public information and communication system that is full with educative atmosphere and protect the faith of the whole family, the citizen of the Khilafah State.
By applying the system, Indonesian families will achieve happiness and prosperity. So let us strive to bring back Khilafah Islamiyah by answering the command from Allah and by realizing honour, prosperity and progress that have been dreamt of. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ ۖ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ
“O you who have believed, respond to Allah and to the Messenger when he calls you to that which gives you life. And know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that to Him you will be gathered.”
