Major General Retired TNI Top Da’wah Party Leader Hurts, Calls Detachment 88 Operation Incompatible with Pancasila

WARTAKOTALIVE.COM, JAKARTA — Special Detachment (Densus) 88 Anti-terror Police arrested the General Chair Indonesian People’s Da’wah Party (PDRI) Farid Okbah in Jatiasih, Bekasi, Tuesday (16/11/2021), on suspicion of acts of terrorism.

Also arrested at the same time, Ahmad Zain An-Najah who is a member of the Central MUI Fatwa Commission and Anung Al-Hamat.

Police said Ustaz Farid Okbah founded the PDRI as a new platform for the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) terrorist network.

In this regard, the board of directors and senior officials PDRI delivered a statement in a press conference uploaded on the YouTube account @Partai Da’wah, Sunday (21/11/2021) night.

Member of the Shura Council PDRI, Major General TNI (Ret.) Deddy S Budiman strongly condemned the actions of Densus 88 and the National Police who accused his party of harboring former JI members.

“My name is Deddy Setia Budiman, I am a member of the Shura Council PDRI. I once held the rank of Major General of the TNI. I have received intelligence education, and I have served in the intelligence apparatus. My last position was an expert staff of the TNI Commander. I’m the Akabri class 75,” said Deddy, starting his statement.

“Thank God, in the Da’wah Party, there are retired Army, Navy and Air Force officers,” said Deddy.

He claimed to be interested in PDRI because his vision is considered very noble.

“That is, we want to uphold amar maaruf nahi mungkar, in order to create an independent, united, sovereign, fair and prosperous NKRI, based on Pancasila and UUD 45. I believe the Dakwah Party from that vision is not the JI group,” he said.
