Patterns of Global Terrorism   -2003
Released by the Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism
April 29, 2004

East Asia Overview

US Coordinator for Counterterrorism Cofer Black speaks with reporters in Hanoi. Ambassador Black was in Hanoi to participate in an ASEAN meeting on counterterrorism measures, 13 June 2003.The capture by Thai authorities in August of top Jemaah Islamiya (JI) leader and al-Qaida’s representative in Southeast Asia, Nurjaman Riduan bin Isomuddin (a.k.a. Hambali) was a significant victory in the global war on terrorism. Hambali, an Indonesian, was captured at an apartment complex in Ayutthaya, Thailand, and is suspected of masterminding numerous terrorist attacks in Southeast Asia, including the Christmas Eve church bombings in 2000 in Indonesia (19 dead, 47 wounded); the bombings on 30 December 2000 in metro Manila, Philippines (22 dead); the Bali attacks on 12 October 2002 (202 dead, more than 330 wounded); and possibly the J.W. Marriott Hotel bombing on 5 August 2003 in Jakarta (12 dead, over 150 wounded). Furthermore, Hambali was key in planning terrorist attacks with multiple targets in Singapore, disrupted in December 2001, and in planning Thailand attacks that were disrupted in May 2003. Hambali’s capture and detention serves as a major blow to both JI and al-Qaida. In 2003, as Hambali’s capture illustrates, it became clearer that the Asia-Pacific region, primarily Southeast Asia, is an attractive theater of support and logistics for al-Qaida and a theater of operations for the regional terrorist group Jemaah Islamiya, acting alone or in collaboration with indigenous extremist groups. Hambali’s case — an Indonesian national perpetrating attacks in Indonesia and the Philippines and planning attacks in Singapore and Thailand — serves as a case in point and accurately reflects the transnational nature of the terrorist threat in Southeast Asia.

Overall, counterterrorism cooperation with Asian governments was good in 2003, and solid progress was made to close seams between jurisdictions and share information on terrorist groups and their activities. As governments in the region continued their efforts to arrest and interdict terrorists by building and improving their counterterrorism capabilities, JI and other terrorists adapted by focusing on softer Western targets in Southeast Asia. The bombing on 5 August 2003 of the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta that killed 12 marks a continuation of this trend. This attack galvanized the Indonesian Government’s will to take action.

Although most indigenous terrorist and Muslim separatist groups in Indonesia, Malaysia, the southern Philippines, and Thailand share an ideology and general rejection of Western influence held by international Islamic terrorists, they are focused primarily on effecting change within their home countries. Many leaders of Southeast Asian groups fought or claim to have fought in Afghanistan in the “Jihad” and brought back critical skills and contacts — along with burnished extremist credentials. The relationships formed in Afghanistan developed into a widening network in which local extremists were able to tap into international terrorist networks for operational support, training and/or funds, and vice versa. The net effect of the influence of such groups is to decrease the likelihood of peaceful and long-term solutions to separatist movements/ethnic conflicts, to exacerbate current regional terrorism, and to foster an environment conducive to terrorism’s continued growth.

Extremists have been able to win supporters by financially supporting schools and mosques that espouse their brand of Islam and exploiting religious sympathies or discontent among Muslim populations. Muslim populations in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, and Cambodia are vulnerable to such radical influences.

Partners such as Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, and others are working with the United States to assist governments in the region to overcome these challenges by providing training and assistance. The primary tools to build such capacity remain bilateral engagement programs, but much progress was made in working multilaterally to promote regional and transnational approaches to the challenges of counterterrorism. Building upon the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Regional Forum (ARF) for Counterterrorism Workplan, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Counterterrorism Task Force, and other mechanisms, the region as a whole made advances in areas such as law enforcement, border control, transportation security, information sharing, antiterrorist financing, and the development of legal regimes.

Australia and Japan maintained their strong counterterrorism stance in 2003, both domestically and abroad. Senior officials from both countries publicly declared their firm commitment to work with the United States to combat terrorism over the long term in a meeting of the three counterterrorism ambassadors in November in Canberra. Australia and Japan continue to contribute to the war on terrorism in Afghanistan. Australia made strong contributions to the US-led Coalition in Iraq, while Japan’s October passage of the Iraq Reconstruction Assistance Law, which includes provision for dispatching the Japan Self-Defense Forces to Iraq, reflects its strong commitment to assist in reconstruction and humanitarian efforts (deployment, in fact, took place in early 2004).

Australia and Japan are active in helping Asia-Pacific countries build their capacity in various international and regional forums to combat terrorism. Australia, for example, has broadened its network of bilateral counterterrorism arrangements in Southeast Asia to eight nations. The APEC Leaders’ Summit in 2003 endorsed two Australian counterterrorism-related initiatives: advancement of passenger information systems and development of a regional movement-alert system. Japanese officials led seminars on immigration control, aviation security, customs cooperation, export control, law enforcement, and terrorist financing. In May, Cambodian authorities arrested one Egyptian, two Thais, and one Cambodian suspected of being members of JI. The cell was plotting to conduct terrorist attacks in Cambodia and had been operating out of an Islamic school on the outskirts of Phnom Penh run by the Saudi Arabia–based nongovernmental organization, Umm al-Qura.

China continues to take a clear stand against international terrorism and is broadly supportive of the global war on terror. China actively participated in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) and engaged in SCO joint counterterrorism exercises in Kazakhstan and Xinjiang Province in August. The People’s Bank of China is in the process of establishing an Anti-Money Laundering Bureau, which will include a Terrorist Finance Investigative Department. Beijing displays a general willingness to cooperate with international terrorism investigations and continues to assert that terrorists — primarily based in Xinjiang Province — operate on Chinese territory.

Indonesia continued its firm public stance against terrorism in 2003. The government, led by the Indonesian National Police, has taken effective steps to counter the threat posed by JI, arresting 109 suspected JI members — most in 2003 — including suspects in the Bali attacks, the Marriott attack, and other criminal acts linked to terrorism. Indonesia has adopted a comprehensive terrorism law defining various acts of terror and providing police and prosecutors with broader powers to combat terrorism — such as extended pretrial detention periods and the use of electronic evidence in court.

Nevertheless, persistent Indonesian domestic sensitivities, political pressures, and institutional weaknesses limit the Government’s effectiveness. The Government, for example, made little effort to investigate the activities and affiliations of six students suspected of terrorist involvement who were deported from Pakistan in early December 2003; two were released within days of their repatriation to Indonesia.

On 1 July, Malaysia established a Southeast Asia Regional Center for Counterterrorism (SEARCCT). SEARCCT is expected to focus on regional training, information sharing, and public awareness campaigns. In August, SEARCCT hosted a training program sponsored by the US Treasury’s financial intelligence unit and Malaysia’s Central Bank on combating terrorist financing. Other nations, including the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia, are also expected to provide trainers and training materials to the center.

Malaysia has detained more than 100 suspected terrorists under the Internal Security Act (ISA) since May 2001 and assisted Indonesian efforts to prosecute terrorist suspects by making video testimony from suspects in Malaysian custody available to Indonesian prosecutors. Malaysia has responded quickly to UN Security Council requirements to prohibit terrorist financing and freeze the assets of named entities. In September, Malaysia deposited the instruments of ratification for two international antiterrorism conventions: the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings and the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Internationally Protected Persons. It has not yet become a party, however, to the critical International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

New Zealand appointed its first Ambassador for Counterterrorism in September to build upon the measures taken since the attacks of September 11 in the United States and to ensure that New Zealand has a stronger capacity to develop and implement policies on global terrorism and related security issues. New Zealand continues to support Operation Enduring Freedom. It deployed troops to Iraq and Afghanistan to participate in the reconstruction efforts and pledged to provide humanitarian aid, as well as keeping its previous commitment of sending military forces to the region.

The Philippines was the victim of a number of terrorist attacks in 2003, including the car-bomb attack adjacent to a military airfield in Cotobato, on the southern island of Mindanao on 21 February; the bombing on 4 March at the International Airport in Davao, Mindanao that killed 17 (including one US citizen); the Sasa Wharf bombing on 2 April also in Davao that killed 15; a series of bombings in Koronadal City, Mindanao, that took more than 15 civilian lives; as well as a number of kidnappings-for-ransom operations.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other Philippine officials continue to be outspoken supporters of the global Coalition against terrorism and have been swift and direct in condemnation of terrorist acts, both domestic and international. The Government of the Philippines created a multiagency counterterrorism task force chaired by the National Security Advisor and consisting of officials from 34 Philippine Government agencies representing the security, economic, and social components essential for an effective counterterrorism strategy. In October, the Philippine Government ratified the remaining six of the 12 United Nations counterterrorism conventions.

Philippine authorities made several significant arrests of suspected terrorists in 2003. In May, security forces arrested a sub-commander of the separatist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) involved in the explosion of 30 December on a Manila commuter train that killed 22 people. In October, a JI operative was arrested at a JI safehouse in Cotabato City, on the southern island of Mindanao. In December, Philippine Armed Forces captured Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) leader “Commander Robot,” a leader of one of the main ASG factions responsible for numerous kidnappings and bombings during the last decade, including the kidnapping in April 2000 of Western tourists from the Malaysian resort of Sipadan.

Despite its overall positive record, Manila continues to face setbacks and challenges on the counterterrorism front. In July, a senior Indonesian JI operative escaped from Philippine National Police headquarters in Manila along with two suspected ASG members. All three were eventually killed or recaptured.

Singapore continued its strong public and private opposition to terrorism and maintained vigorous counterterrorism action in bilateral and multilateral contexts. There were no acts of international or domestic terrorism in Singapore in 2003, although authorities continued investigation and detentions of members of JI, which plotted to carry out attacks in Singapore in the past.

During 2003, Singapore continued its cooperation with a variety of governments, including the United States, to investigate terrorist groups, especially JI, through both intelligence and law-enforcement channels. Singapore provided Thailand information that ultimately led to the arrest in May of a Singaporean JI member in Thailand. As a result of that investigation, Thai authorities also arrested several Thai citizens believed to be members of a JI cell plotting to blow up five embassies in Bangkok, including the US Embassy. Singapore provided key information that helped Thailand track down and arrest top JI leader Hambali in August and also facilitated video testimony of three of its ISA detainees in the Indonesian trial of JI spiritual leader Abu Bakar Bashir in August.

Thailand’s domestic and international counterterrorism efforts, which were bolstered in the wake of the deadly bombing in Bali, Indonesia, in October 2002, intensified during 2003. Prime Minster Thaksin Shinawatra publicly expressed the will of the Royal Thai Government to cooperate closely with the United States and other nations in fighting the global war on terror. In August, Thai authorities captured top JI leader with close ties to al-Qaida, Nurjaman Riduan bin Isomuddin (a.k.a. Hambali) in Ayutthaya, Thailand. In June and July, Thai authorities in southern Thailand arrested four men suspected of being either JI supporters or operatives. The four are implicated in a conspiracy to bomb a number of high-profile targets and tourist venues in Thailand including the embassies of the United States, United Kingdom, Israel, Singapore, and Australia.

In August, the King signed an emergency antiterrorist decree, giving the government powerful new legal tools to fight terrorism. There were no significant acts of terrorism in Thailand during 2003. The Thai Government’s effectiveness in precluding a terrorist incident during the APEC Summit in October was considered a major success both domestically and internationally.

Australia

Australia continued its strong counterterrorism stance in 2003, both domestically and abroad. Australia continues to contribute to the global war on terror in Afghanistan. Between September 2001 and June 2004, Australia expects to have contributed more than US $46 million in humanitarian and reconstruction assistance to Afghanistan. Australia has also made strong contributions to the US-led Coalition in Iraq, with more than 800 Australian Defence Force personnel in Iraq. Its commitment to Iraq’s stabilization and development continues across humanitarian, agricultural, and other economic sectors.

Canberra further improved its domestic counterterrorism arrangements and consultative mechanisms in 2003. The National Counterterrorism Committee completed a National Counterterrorism Plan in June. The Government also created a National Security Hotline, conducted a public campaign to ensure that Australians remain alert to the possible threat of terrorism, and formed the Business-Government Task Force on Critical Infrastructure. A National Security Division was established in the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to ensure a continued high level of coordination and reinforce a government-wide approach to terrorism and national security issues. Canberra also established the National Threat Assessment Centre to provide integrated assessment capability across the government.

In March, the Government created a position of Ambassador for Counterterrorism. Similar to the Coordinator for Counterterrorism in the United States, the Ambassador provides a focal point for coordinating, promoting, and intensifying Australia’s international counterterrorism efforts.

Underpinning Australia’s commitment to fighting terrorism is a detailed legislative response. In 2002, the Commonwealth Parliament created specific offenses for involvement in terrorist activities and terrorist organizations and designated 16 such terrorist groups as of December 2003. Parliament also provided additional powers to the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation in 2003.

The Parliament passed new measures in 2002 to deny terrorists the funds on which they rely, and during 2002 and 2003 specifically listed more than 400 terrorist-related individuals, entities, and organizations, including HAMAS and Hizballah. Australia has taken action to block transactions, accounts, and assets relating to persons or organizations identified as terrorists or the sponsors of terrorism, including those listed under US Executive Order 13224. Australia has a highly developed legal regime in place to combat terrorist financing. The Australian financial intelligence unit AUSTRAC has strengthened its network by signing a further ten Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) with other Financial Intelligence Units throughout the world in 2003, bringing the total to 24. AUSTRAC is also cooperating with the US counterpart, FinCEN, on financial intelligence.

Australia is helping countries in the Asia-Pacific region build their capacity to combat terrorism in areas such as law enforcement, border management, transportation security, intelligence, antiterrorist financing, and the development of legal regimes. In July, Prime Minister Howard announced a three-year $3.6 million package with the Philippines to support the building of counterterrorism capacity. Australia’s $7.2 million counterterrorism package to Indonesia is in the second of its four years. Australia spent $5.38 million specifically on building counterterrorism capacity throughout the entire Asia-Pacific region and expects to spend an additional $6.12 million this year.

Australia has broadened its network of bilateral counterterrorism arrangements in Southeast Asia, signing MOUs on cooperation to combat international terrorism with the Philippines, Fiji, Cambodia, East Timor, and India during 2003, bringing Australia’s network of MOUs to eight. These MOUs are umbrella arrangements that set out a framework for bilateral cooperation in law enforcement, defense, intelligence, customs, and immigration.

The MOU with the Philippines facilitated cooperation between the Australian Federal Police and the Philippine National Police, including in the investigation of the bombing in Davao City in the southern Philippines in March 2003, in which 17 were killed, including one US citizen. In Indonesia, the joint Australian and Indonesian police investigation into the Bali bombings in October 2002 that killed 202, including 88 Australians, is testimony to the successful combination of Australian and Indonesian investigative and forensic techniques — and a model for successful international cooperation to bring perpetrators of terrorism to justice. By November 2003, 36 suspects were in Indonesian custody. Among these, 29 had been convicted and an additional four were before the courts.

In the Pacific Islands, Australia has continued working with the region’s key political body — the Pacific Islands Forum — and with other regional entities such as the South Pacific Chiefs of Police Conference, the Oceania Customs Organization, and the Pacific Immigration Directors Conference, to reduce the possibility of countries in the region being exploited by terrorists and to combat organized crime.

The APEC Leaders’ Summit in 2003 endorsed two Australian counterterrorism-related initiatives: advance passenger information systems and development of a regional alert system. Australia is working hard in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Regional Forum to focus on the very real danger of terrorism and ways to counter it. In June 2003, Australia and Singapore co-hosted a seminar on managing the consequences of a major terrorist attack, which focused on practical measures that governments can take to recover from such an incident.

Australia is a party to 11 of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism.

Burma

Burma maintained its solid position against international terrorism in 2003. The regime previously enacted, but has not yet implemented, an anti-money laundering law that could help block terrorist assets. The military government is fighting several low-intensity conflicts against ethnic insurgents. At least one of these groups is alleged to have ties to South Asian terrorist networks.

The junta has occasionally sought to portray insurgent attacks against infrastructure such as bridges and pipelines as terrorism, but there were no known acts of international terrorism during 2003. Dozens of improvised explosive devices exploded or were discovered in various locations throughout Burma in 2003. With the exception of two bombings of an oil pipeline claimed by the insurgent Karen National Union, there were no claims of responsibility for these acts. In March, two improvised explosive devices were found in Rangoon, one of which exploded and killed two municipal workers. The perpetrators’ identities and motives are unclear, but the junta arrested a number of anti-regime activists.

Burma is a party to seven of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

Cambodia

In May, Cambodian authorities arrested one Egyptian, two Thais, and one Cambodian suspected of being members of JI. The Government stated publicly that the group was plotting to conduct terrorist attacks in Cambodia. The group had been operating out of an Islamic school run by the Saudi Arabia-based NGO, Umm al-Qura, on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. The school was allegedly being used as a front for channeling al-Qaida money into Cambodia from Saudi Arabia. In addition to the arrests of the four, who remain in custody awaiting trial, the Cambodian Government shut down two branches of the Umm al-Qura Islamic School and deported 28 foreign teachers and their dependents.

In November, Cambodian authorities arrested seven members of the Cambodian Freedom Fighters, an antigovernment group, that was reportedly planning a terrorist attack in the southwestern town of Koh Kong. The suspects remain in custody while the government completes its investigation.

Although there were no acts of international terrorism on Cambodian soil in 2003, Cambodia recognizes that it is not immune from the problem of international terrorism and understands that it needs to work actively to counter the threat. The information leading to the arrest of the suspected JI members in the Umm al-Qura Islamic School and subsequent knowledge that Indonesian JI terrorist leader Hambali resided temporarily in Cambodia have hardened Cambodia’s attitude.

Cambodia’s ability to independently investigate potential terrorist activities is limited by a lack of training and resources. In addition, Cambodia’s lack of comprehensive and effective domestic legislation to combat terrorism is a serious constraint on the Government’s ability to arrest and prosecute terrorists. To address these deficiencies, the Cambodian Government has requested international assistance to upgrade its counterterrorism capabilities. Beginning in 2003, the government made significant headway in instituting computerized border control systems at Phnom Penh’s international airport. The Cambodian Government has also cooperated fully with US requests to monitor terrorists and terrorists entities listed as supporters of terrorist financing.

Phnom Penh has been vocal in condemning terrorist acts. Foreign Minister Hor Namhong, for example, issued a strongly worded statement condemning the bombing attack in October 2002 in Bali, Indonesia. Cambodia has actively participated in international counterterrorism forums. As ASEAN Chair from July 2002 to June 2003, Cambodia took the lead in coordinating ASEAN statements on terrorism, such as the Joint ASEAN-EU Declaration on Cooperation to Combat Terrorism and the relevant text in the Chairman’s Statement of the Tenth ASEAN Regional Forum released in June.

Cambodia is a party to four of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

China

China continues to take a clear stand against international terrorism and is broadly supportive of the global war on terror. Chinese officials at all levels regularly denounce terrorism, and China regularly participates in discussions of counterterrorism in both international and regional forums. For example, China actively participated in the SCO, assisting in the establishment of an SCO Counterterrorism Center in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, scheduled to begin operation in 2004, and engaging in SCO joint counterterrorism exercises in Kazakhstan and Xinjiang Province in August 2003.

China is supportive of diplomatic actions and efforts to block and freeze terrorist assets. China treats designations of terrorists under US Executive Order 13224 on an equal basis with those designated by the United Nations UNSCR 1267 Sanctions Committee. The United States and China hold regular counterterrorism consultations and expert-level consultations on curbing terrorist financing. The People’s Bank of China is in the process of establishing an Anti-Money Laundering Bureau, which will include a Terrorist Finance Investigative Department.

China displays a general willingness to cooperate with international terrorism investigations. Chinese authorities actively participated in the investigation of the case of the “Portland Six” — a group in Portland, Oregon, indicted on terrorism charges in October 2002 — providing hotel records and other information that proved instrumental in obtaining guilty pleas from the defendants.

There were no acts of international terrorism committed in China in 2003. There were several reports, however, of bombings and bomb threats in various parts of China, although it is unclear whether these were politically motivated acts of terrorism or criminal attacks. Chinese authorities assert that terrorists, primarily based in Xinjiang Province, continue to operate on Chinese territory. On 15 December, for example, China’s Ministry of Public Security (MPS) issued a list of “East Turkestan” groups and individuals that the Chinese Government considers to be terrorist entities. The list includes four groups: the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), the East Turkestan Liberation Organization (better known as SHAT), the World Uighur Youth Congress, and the East Turkestan Information Center.

The list also specifically names 11 individuals as terrorists, including the leaders of each of the above groups. The MPS stated that it has incontrovertible evidence that each listed group has organized and executed specific terrorist acts in Xinjiang and that these groups are all linked to each other and the al-Qaida network. Following the release of the list, the Chinese Government called for international assistance in China’s fight against these organizations and individuals, requesting that the assets of the groups be frozen, that the organizations be outlawed, and that countries stop supporting and financing them. Beijing also asked the international community to assist in the investigation, apprehension, and repatriation of the designated individuals. The US Department of State has designated the ETIM as part of the Department of State’s Terrorist Exclusion List and under Executive Order 13224 but has not designated the other three groups under US law.

China is a party to 11 of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

Indonesia

[AFP photo]Indonesia continued its firm public stance against terrorism in 2003. The terrorist bombings in Bali on 12 October 2002 that killed 202 — mostly foreign tourists — and the bombing of the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Jakarta on 5 August 2003 that killed 12 forced the Indonesian Government into action. The Government, led by the Indonesian National Police, has taken effective steps to counter the threat posed by the regional terrorist organization Jemaah Islamiya (JI), which has ties to al-Qaida. Indonesian police have arrested 109 suspected JI members — most in 2003 — including suspects in the Bali attacks, the Marriott attack, and other criminal acts linked to terrorism. Those arrested included numerous senior JI leaders, a number of regional and subregional commanders, most of the masterminds of the Bali attack, several key planners of the Marriott bombing, former instructors at JI training camps, and financiers of terrorist attacks.

In a case symptomatic of persistent Indonesian domestic sensitivities, political pressures, and institutional weaknesses, however, the Government made little effort to investigate the activities and affiliations of six students suspected of terrorist involvement, who were deported from Pakistan in early December 2003 and released two within days of their repatriation.

[AFP photo]Indonesia, hampered by weak rule of law, a poorly regulated financial system, and serious internal coordination problems, has not yet frozen any terrorist assets. The Government, however, did enhance its legal framework in September by passing amendments to its anti-money laundering law, which strengthened the government’s legal authority to combat terrorist finance. Indonesia has also created a financial intelligence unit with US assistance.

In March, Indonesia adopted a comprehensive antiterrorism law, defining various acts of terror and providing police and prosecutors with broader powers to combat terrorism such as extended pretrial detention periods and the use of electronic evidence in court. The Government, however, has been unwilling to ban JI, saying the organization never formally applied for recognition and thus cannot be prohibited. The absence of such a prohibition has impeded police and prosecutors in arresting and trying suspected terrorists and will most likely further hamper prosecutors’ efforts to put JI leaders behind bars.

On 2 September, the Central Jakarta District Court convicted the spiritual leader of JI, Abu Bakar Bashir, on treason and immigration charges. The panel of judges stated in its decision that the prosecutors had presented suffi cient evidence to convince them of JI’s existence, its goal of overthrowing the Government of Indonesia, and Bashir’s involvement with the group. However, despite videoconference testimony from Bali bombers naming Bashir as the head of JI, judges were not convinced of his leadership role and sentenced him to only four years in prison. Both Bashir and the prosecution appealed the decision. In November, the court reduced Bashir’s sentence to three years, reversing the treason charge but upholding his conviction for document fraud and immigration violations.

[AFP photo]The Indonesian judicial system undertook the trials of approximately 63 terror suspects in 2003, including 17 for involvement in the bombing of a McDonald’s restaurant and a car showroom in Makassar, South Sulawesi, in December 2002; as well as 46 members of JI for involvement in the church bombings on Christmas Eve 2000, the bombing of the Philippine Ambassador’s residence in Jakarta in August 2000, and the Bali and Marriott Hotel bombings. As of 1 December 2003, Indonesian courts had convicted a total of 50 terror suspects and acquitted two. Thirty-nine of these convictions were of suspects involved in the Bali bombings on 12 October 2002. Three key planners — Amrozi bin Nurhasyim, Abdul Ghoni (a.k.a. Mukhlas), and Abdul Aziz (a.k.a. Imam Samudra — were all sentenced to death. Many others were given life in prison.

The numerous convictions and tough sentences handed down by the courts are a reflection of the Government’s seriousness in combating terrorism and its commitment to bring to justice those implicated in terrorist attacks in Indonesia. Fifteen terrorist trials remain under way, and many suspects await trial. At year’s end, Indonesian An Indonesian Muslim woman grieves at a family gathering for victims of the J.W. Marriott Hotel bombing while holding her nephew, whose father was killed in the attack on 5 August 2003.

Police continued steadily to arrest suspected JI members and were devoting considerable resources to hunting JI bombmakers Azahari Hussein and Noordin Mat Top, as well as several other known fugitives.

Indonesia is a party to four of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to two additional conventions, including the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

Japan

Japan continued its strong counterterrorism stance in 2003. Prime Minister Koizumi and numerous other senior officials have publicly declared their firm commitment to stand by the United States to combat terrorism over the long term. Japan’s significant rear-area support to Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) in Afghanistan and strong statement of support for US-led military action in Iraq bear out this commitment. In July 2003, the Japanese Diet passed the Iraq Reconstruction Assistance Law, which includes provision for dispatching the Japan Self-Defense Forces to Iraq to assist in reconstruction and humanitarian efforts. In October 2003, the Japanese Diet approved a two-year extension of the Anti-Terrorism Special Measures Law and another six-month basic plan, which stipulate the activities that the Japan Self- Defense Forces may perform in support of OEF. Japan provides approximately 40 percent of the fuel used by US naval forces engaged in OEF. Japan Air Self-Defense Force planes continued to provide transportation for US forces.

Japan actively participates in strengthening counterterrorism measures in various international and regional forums. In August 2003, Japan signed a mutual legal assistance treaty with the United States and plans to submit the treaty to the Diet for ratification in 2004. Once ratified, it will make cooperation in investigations and prosecution of terrorists easier. To help stem the flow of terrorist financing to al-Qaida and the Taliban, Japan designated under its asset-freezing program all entities and individuals included on the UN 1267 Sanctions Committee’s consolidated list. Tokyo announced in October 2003 that Japan will join the Advanced Passenger Information System, obliging Japanese officials to share information about departing international passengers with other participating countries, including the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

Japan continues to make valuable contributions to building counterterrorism capacity among Asian countries. Japanese officials have led seminars on immigration control, aviation security, customs cooperation, export control, law enforcement, and terrorist financing. Japanese National Police Agency officials were dispatched to assist the Indonesian Police investigation following the Marriott Hotel bombing in Jakarta in August 2003. Japan had also dispatched criminal investigators to Indonesia in the wake of the terrorist attacks in Bali in October 2002. In addition, Japan is providing technical assistance to Southeast Asian countries working to create a system for monitoring terrorist financing. For example, Japan sponsored a seminar on establishing financial intelligence units for Southeast Asian countries in October 2003.

There were no incidents of international terrorism in Japan during 2003. Trials continue of members of the Aum Shinrikyo Group, a US-designated foreign terrorist organization, accused of perpetrating the sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system in 1995. The prosecution has requested the death penalty for Aum Shrinrikyo leader Matsumoto, and a ruling is expected in early 2004. Three suspects in the incident in 1995 remain at large. The Public Security Intelligence Agency is continuing its surveillance of the group through 2005, as authorized by the Public Security Commission in December 2002.

Japan is a party to all 12 international terrorism conventions and protocols relating to terrorism.

Laos

The Government of Laos has continued to support the global war on terrorism. Although the Government’s intentions regarding counterterrorism are positive, implementation of multilateral agreements is hampered by weak enforcement procedures and lack of control of areas outside the capital. The Government cooperated bilaterally on counterterrorism issues with the United States and other nations and multilaterally with the United Nations and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Since Laos lacks distinct counterterrorism laws, the Office of the Prosecutor General plans to introduce amendments to existing criminal law, under which acts of terrorism fall, to make more explicit the descriptions of and punishments for terrorism-related crimes. In September, Lao courts sentenced two active-duty soldiers to life imprisonment for orchestrating a series of bombings in Vientiane in 2000 and 2002. Laos has continued to seek the extradition of 17 Lao citizens from Thailand suspected of involvement in an armed attack against a Lao customs checkpoint in the southern part of the country in July 2000. Laos suffered many incidents of domestic terrorism in 2003, carried out by groups of unknown identity opposed to the Lao Government. Some of these terrorist incidents were ambush-style attacks against buses and private vehicles, resulting in the deaths of 34 civilians, and others targeted government officials, killing three Lao officials. A group calling itself the Free Democratic People’s Government of Laos claimed credit for at least one in a series of bombings in the latter half of the year that killed one person and injured several more.

The Bank of Laos continued to search government and commercial bank holdings for possible terrorist assets, as identified by US-provided lists of terrorist organizations and individuals, and has issued freeze orders for assets of organizations and individuals named on these lists. The Bank, however, had yet to take steps to report on Government compliance with UNSCR 1373 or to require the freezing of the assets of individuals and entities associated with Usama Bin Ladin, members of al-Qaida, and members of the Taliban as included on the UNSCR 1267 Sanctions Committee’s consolidated list, as required by mandatory provisions of UN Security Council resolutions.

Laos is a party to seven of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism but has not yet become a party to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

Malaysia

On 1 July, Malaysia established a Southeast Asia Regional Center for Counterterrorism (SEARCCT). SEARCCT is expected to focus on regional training, information sharing, and public awareness campaigns. In August, SEARCCT hosted a training program sponsored by the US Treasury’s financial intelligence unit, FinCEN, and Malaysia’s Central Bank (Bank Negara) on combating terrorist financing. Other nations, including the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia, are also expected to provide trainers and training materials to the center. Malaysia assisted Indonesian efforts to prosecute terrorist suspects by making video testimony from suspects in Malaysian custody available to Indonesian prosecutors.

Malaysia has detained more than 100 suspected terrorists under the Internal Security Act (ISA) since May 2001. Malaysia issued 10 and renewed 11 two-year detention orders for terrorist suspects in 2003. On 10 November, 13 Malaysian terrorist suspects were held under 60-day detention orders upon their return from Pakistani custody. Eight of these suspects have been released. In August, the Malaysian Government chose not to renew a detention order for Muhammad Iqbal (a.k.a. Abu Jibril) an Indonesian national and terrorist suspect, seeking instead to deport him to Indonesia. At years’ end, Iqbal remained in Malaysian custody.

Malaysia has responded quickly to UN Security Council requirements to prohibit terrorist financing and freeze the accounts of named entities. In November, Malaysia’s Parliament amended its antimoney laundering legislation of 2001 to include terrorist activity as a predicate offense. Parliament also amended the penal and criminal procedure codes to increase penalties for terrorist acts, allow for the prosecution of individuals who provide material support for terrorists, expand the use of wiretaps and other surveillance of terrorist suspects, and permit video testimony in terrorist cases.

On 24 September, Malaysia deposited the instruments of ratification for two international antiterrorism conventions: the International Convention for the Suppression of Terrorist Bombings and the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Crimes against Internationally Protected Persons. Malaysia is a party to three additional international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the Protocol for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts of Violence at Airports Serving International Civil Aviation. It has not yet become a party to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

In March, Malaysian police announced the discovery of four tons of explosive ammonium nitrate fertilizer often used in truck bombs. According to press reports, the ammonium nitrate had been purchased in September 2000 by ex-Army captain and scientist, Yazid Sufaat, who is currently under ISA detention for allegedly being involved in JI activities. The chemicals were to have been used by JI in Singapore to make truck bombs to attack foreign embassies and other Western targets.

New Zealand

New Zealand appointed its first Ambassador for Counterterrorism in September to consolidate and build upon the measures taken since the attacks of September 11 and to ensure New Zealand has a stronger capacity to develop and implement policies on global terrorism and related security issues. In October, the New Zealand Parliament passed new antiterrorism laws that will allow the Government to investigate, detect, and prosecute terrorist activities more effectively. The laws create new offenses to address terrorist threats, empower the New Zealand Police and Customs Officials to investigate and prosecute those offenses, and bring New Zealand into full compliance with its UN obligations.

New Zealand continues to support Operation Enduring Freedom. It deployed troops to Iraq and Afghanistan to participate in the reconstruction efforts and pledged to provide humanitarian aid, as well as keeping its previous commitment of sending a frigate and a P-3 Orion to the region.

New Zealand is a party to 11 of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Materials.

Philippines

The Philippines continues to be an outspoken supporter of the global Coalition against terrorism and has been swift and direct in condemnation of terrorist acts, both domestic and international.

The Philippines was the victim of a number of terrorist attacks in 2003, including the car-bomb attack on 21 February adjacent to a military airfield in Cotobato, on the southern island of Mindanao; the bombing on 4 March at the International Airport in Davao, Mindanao, that killed 17 (including one US citizen); the Sasa Wharf bombing on 2 April also in Davao that killed 15; a series of bombings in Koronadal City, Mindanao, which took more than 15 civilian lives; as well as a number of kidnappings-for-ransom operations.

[AFP photo]The Philippines faces threats from internal terrorism on several fronts. The United States, for example, has listed four indigenous groups as Foreign Terrorist Organizations — the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), the Communist Party of the Philippines/New People’s Army, Alex Boncayo Brigade, and the Pentagon Gang.

In her speech to the UN General Assembly in September, Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo noted that growing international coordination and cooperation is countering the global threat of terrorism. She further emphasized that the Philippines is working with other heads of state to ensure continued cooperation in the battle to rid Southeast Asia of the terrorist threat. During the ASEAN post-ministerial conference held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, in June, Philippine Foreign Secretary Ople expressed the desire of ASEAN to reinforce collaboration with its dialogue partners, highlighting the area’s capacity building and training in law enforcement.

The Government of the Philippines created a multiagency counterterrorism task force chaired by the National Security Advisor and consisting of officials from 34 Philippine Government agencies representing the security, economic, and social components essential for an effective counterterrorism strategy. In October, President Arroyo appointed former Defense Secretary Angelo Reyes to a newly created cabinet-level position, Ambassador-at-Large for Counterterrorism. The Philippines also established a task force on protection of critical infrastructure chaired by the Undersecretary of the Presidential Office of Special Concerns.

Philippine authorities made several significant arrests of suspected terrorists in 2003. In May, security forces arrested Saifullah Yunos (a.k.a. Muklis Yunos), a subcommander of the separatist MILF. During his arraignment in July, Yunos entered a guilty plea for his involvement in the explosion on a Manila commuter train on 30 December 2000 that killed 22 people. In October, JI operative Taufek Refke was arrested at a JI safehouse in Cotabato City, on the southern island of Mindanao. Police reportedly recovered manuals on bombmaking and chemical-biological warfare. In December, Philippine Armed Forces captured ASG commander Ghalib Andang (a.k.a. “Commander Robot”) on the southern island of Jolo. Andang was the leader of one of the main ASG factions and is responsible for numerous kidnappings and bombings during the last decade, including the kidnapping in April 2000 of Western tourists from the Malaysian resort of Sipadan.

In February, the Philippine Armed Forces overran a base area of the separatist MILF near the town of Pikit on the southern island of Mindanao. Manila claimed that criminals, including the notorious Pentagon Gang, found refuge and protection in the area. Thousands of civilians were displaced as a result of the ensuing days of fighting.

In August, the Philippines sent 96 members of the Philippine Humanitarian Contingent to Iraq to assist in Coalition reconstruction efforts. Philippine officials remained steadfast in word and deed to contribute troops—even in the wake of the terrorist bombing of the UN compound in Baghdad that same week that killed two of their countrymen. If additional funding is available, Manila plans to send 79 additional members and extend the contingent’s stay longer than the planned six months.

Despite its overall positive record, the Philippines continues to face setbacks and challenges on the counterterrorism front. In July, senior Indonesian JI operative Fathur Rahman al-Ghozi escaped from Philippine National Police headquarters in Manila along with two suspected ASG members, Omar Opik Lasal and Abdulmukim “Mukim” Idris. Originally detained in the Philippines in January 2002, al-Ghozi was serving a 17-year prison sentence. Al-Ghozi was eventually killed in a shootout with Philippine security forces in North Cotabato Province on Mindanao on 12 October. Philippine Armed Forces shot and killed Idris on 7 August in Lanao del Norte Province on Mindanao and captured Lasal on 7 October in North Cotabato Province in Mindanao.

For the second straight year, the Philippines failed to enact new antiterrorism legislation in 2003. Major evidentiary and procedural obstacles in the Philippines hinder the building of effective terrorism cases, such as the absence of a law defining and codifying terrorist acts and restrictions on gathering of evidence. Generic problems in the law enforcement and criminal justice systems also hamper bringing terrorists to justice in the Philippines. Among them: low morale, inadequate salaries, recruitment and retention difficulties, and lack of cooperation between police and prosecutors.

Tracking terrorist financing continues to pose a problem to prosecuting cases. Poor communication between Philippine law enforcement agencies and the Anti-Money Laundering Council (AMLC) remains an impediment to effective implementation of the Anti-Money Laundering Act amended in March 2003. The amendments to the Act granted Central Bank personnel unfettered access to deposit accounts. However, the Central Bank and the AMLC face logistic challenges due to the lack of information technology platforms to collect and process covered transaction reports. Although the amendments addressed international Financial Action Task Force (FATF) concerns about the Philippines legal and regulatory framework, the Philippines remains on the FATF’s list of noncooperating countries and territories (NCCT). Removal from the NCCT list awaits the adoption of an anti-money laundering implementation plan and corresponding actions.

In October, the Philippine Government ratified the remaining six of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism.

Singapore

Singapore continued its strong public and private opposition to terrorism and maintained vigorous counterterrorism action in bilateral and multilateral contexts. There were no acts of international or domestic terrorism in Singapore in 2003, although authorities continued their investigation and detentions of members of the JI Southeast Asian regional terrorist network, which had plotted to carry out attacks in Singapore in the past.

Singapore did not announce any new domestic terrorist arrests in 2003, although four of its citizens who are terrorist suspects — believed to be members of JI — were repatriated. All four men are being held under the Internal Security Act, bringing the total number of JI-related detainees to 35. Singapore officials stated publicly that while JI continues to pose a threat in the rest of the region, in Singapore, the JI threat has been significantly minimized since Singapore is believed to have been successful in identifying and breaking up the JI operational cells that had been active in the city-state.

During 2003, Singapore continued its cooperation with a variety of governments, including the United States, to investigate terrorist groups, especially JI, through both intelligence and law enforcement channels. Singapore provided Thailand information that ultimately led to the arrest in May of a Singaporean JI member in Thailand, Arifin bin Ali. As a result of that investigation, Thai authorities also arrested several Thai citizens believed to be members of JI. Singapore authorities later stated that they had conveyed to Thailand information from Arifin that the JI group intended to blow up five embassies in Bangkok, including the US Embassy.

Singapore also provided key information that helped Thailand track down and arrest top JI leader Hambali in August. In February, a tipoff from Singapore led to the arrest of Singapore citizen and alleged leader of JI in Singapore, Mas Selamat Kastari, on the Indonesian island of Batam, near Singapore. Kasteri is alleged to have planned to hijack a plane and crash it into Singapore’s Changi Airport. Singapore also facilitated video testimony of three of its ISA detainees in the Indonesian trial of JI spiritual leader Abu Bakar Bashir in August. Singapore designated both the United States and the United Kingdom in May as “prescribed” countries under the terrorist financing law of 2002. This step allows Singapore to respond to requests for information on terrorist financing.

Singapore’s new export-control law, which went into effect on 1 January, represents a major step forward. Though largely aimed at preventing proliferation of weapons-of-mass-destruction (WMD) goods to governments, the new framework may also assist in preventing such materials from fallings into the hands of terrorists. In March, Singapore became the first port in Asia to begin operations under the US Container Security Initiative. Singapore officials have expressed strong concern about maritime security in nearby waters, especially the Strait of Malacca. These concerns include terrorist threats as well as pirate and other criminal attacks. Singapore has stepped up security within its own waters and also its efforts to work with other countries.

Singapore actively participated in counterterrorism efforts through various international forums, including the ASEAN Regional Forum in June, the APEC Leaders Summit in October, and the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in December. In addition, Singapore hosted and co-sponsored with the United States a January workshop on measures to cut off terrorist financing. Attendees at the workshop included representatives of ASEAN states and Pacific Island Forum members, the UN Counterterrorism Committee, the FATF, and the Asia-Pacific Group on Money Laundering. During 2003, Singapore ratified the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism and the Convention on the Marking of Plastic Explosives for the Purpose of Detection. In November, Singapore passed legislation to enable it to implement the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation; at year’s end, it had not signed the convention.

Singapore’s port and air bases continued to be available to transiting military forces engaged in the global war on terrorism, including those of the United States. In November, a Singapore Landing Ship Tank began a deployment to assist Coalition efforts in Iraq; Singapore has also pledged a C-130. During President Bush’s October visit, Singapore and the United States announced plans to conclude a “Strategic Framework Agreement” on defense and security. In addition to military-to-military cooperation, the statement noted that the agreement was expected to increase cooperation against terrorism and proliferation.

Singapore is a party to six of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism.

Taiwan

Taiwan has supported the global war on terrorism and continues to take steps to improve its counterterrorism laws and regulations, port and container security, and terrorist finance legislation. At a ministerial meeting in June 2003 of the Asia- Pacific Economic Cooperation Forum, Taiwan’s Economic Minister voiced Taiwan’s strong support for counterterrorism efforts in the Asia-Pacific region, which focused on plans to enhance security measures in airplanes, airports, ships, and harbors.

In October, the Cabinet approved a draft law that would mandate the formation of a task force to coordinate terrorism prevention measures and provide an integrated legal framework for counterterrorism efforts. The proposed legislation also would grant special powers for telecommunication surveillance, provide measures to check the identity of terrorists, inspect transportation equipment, and confiscate the property or assets of suspected terrorists.

The United States and Taiwan continued negotiations on the Department of Homeland Security’s Container Security Initiative, which aims to protect containerized shipping from exploitation by terrorists. Taiwan operates one of the busiest container ports in the world and has been identified by Homeland Security as one of the top 20 foreign ports for implementation of the initiative.

Taiwan also has been working to identify fi nancial assets controlled or utilized by international terrorists, but to date, no terrorist assets have been located in Taiwan.

Thailand

Thailand’s domestic and international counterterrorism efforts, which were bolstered in the wake of the deadly bombing in Bali, Indonesia, in October 2002, intensified during 2003. Prime Minster Thaksin Shinawatra publicly expressed the will of the Royal Thai Government to cooperate closely with the United States and other nations in fighting the global war on terror. In August, Thai authorities captured top JI leader with close ties to al-Qaida, Nurjaman Riduan bin Isomuddin (a.k.a. Hambali) in Ayutthaya, Thailand. Hambali’s capture serves as a major blow to both JI and al-Qaida and represents a significant victory in the war on global terror.

In June and July, Thai authorities in southern Thailand arrested four men suspected of being either JI supporters or operatives. The four are implicated in a conspiracy to bomb a number of high-profile targets and tourist venues in Thailand, including the Embassies of Australia, Israel, Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Court hearings for the four began in November, although a decision is not expected until 2004.

In August, the King signed an emergency antiterrorist decree, giving the Government powerful new legal tools to fight terrorism. These measures establish the criminal offense of terrorism in the penal code and make that offense a predicate under the Anti-Money Laundering Act. The executive decree was approved after nearly two years of parliamentary consideration. Although existing legislation does not cover terrorist financing, Thailand is planning to expand its Anti- Money Laundering Act to include terrorism. The Government and Thailand’s central bank continued to cooperate closely with the United States on reviewing and disseminating lists of persons blocked under US Executive Order 13224. To date, Thailand has not identified any entities on the list, and no assets have been blocked or frozen.

As Thailand continues to expand its government-to government cooperation with other ASEAN states, it is becoming more difficult for members of regional terrorist organizations to move from country to country while evading national law enforcement agencies. Thailand is a participant in the new Southeast Asia Center for Counterterrorism based in Malaysia. As host of the APEC Leader’s Summit in October 2003, Thailand was instrumental in persuading APEC members to adopt the “Bangkok Goals,” which place security concerns on an equal footing with the economic objectives that previously dominated this forum.

Throughout most of 2003, Thailand provided 130 military engineers and medical personnel to Bagram, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Thailand has also dispatched engineers to Iraq to help with reconstruction tasks there.

Thailand is a major recipient of the US Anti-Terrorism Assistance program, with numerous Thai police and security officials participating in US-sponsored training courses since 1995. Thailand is also working closely with the United States to enhance the security of its borders by upgrading to more effective, state-of-the-art controls.

There were no significant acts of terrorism in Thailand during 2003. The Thai Government’s effectiveness in precluding a terrorist incident during the APEC Summit in October was considered a major success both domestically and internationally.

Thailand is a party to four of the 12 international conventions and protocols relating to terrorism and is a signatory to the Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism.

INDONESIA: 1965-1966 Massacre: Four Decades of Injustice

Fabian Junge 
(Ed. note: A coup on Sept. 30, 1965, triggered an orgy of violence in Indonesia that killed hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people within a one-year period—an event that eventually brought Gen. Suharto to power for more than three decades. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people were imprisoned and tortured during this period. Most of the victims were members of the Communist Party of Indonesia, or Partai Komunis Indonesia (PKI), people accused of being Communist Party members or political opponents of the Suharto regime. The subjects of this story are survivors of this national tragedy. The author was a German intern with the Asian Human Rights Commission [AHRC] for approximately six weeks in 2005 in the AHRC office in Hong Kong and an additional six weeks in Indonesia. He has been involved with issues in Indonesia since 2001.)  

Ibu Surati: ‘My Only Hope Is for My Grandchildren to Lead a Normal Life’

Education and community work played a central part in the life of Surati Suparna binte Djaswadi, born in 1925 in East Java, and her husband. The two primary school teachers and their daughter, who was born in 1957, lived and worked in the Central Javanese city of Solo where they were well-respected members of their community. To a large extent, this respect was due to the active role Ibu Surati played in the community. Together with fellow teachers, she taught illiterate adults. She also was an active member of the district council and the Indonesian Teacher’s Association, known as PGRI in Indonesia. Moreover, she was involved in the preparation of community and religious festivals every year.

Arrest and ImprisonmentThe harmonious life of Ibu Surati and her family was destroyed by an incident in far-away Jakarta that altered the fate of not only herself but of a large number of victims and of Indonesia as a whole. It began in early October of 1965 when she heard the news on the radio about the murder of six important generals by a so-called Sept. 30 Movement, allegedly an attempted coup masterminded by the Communist Party of Indonesia (Partai Komunis Indonesia or PKI). About 10 days later large numbers of army troops under the command of Col. Sarwo Edhie Wibowo arrived in Solo and began arresting ordinary men who were detained in the town hall. Among those arrested were many of Ibu Surati’s friends and fellow teachers. Although the mayor of Solo had informed Ibu Surati at a special meeting for teachers that the killing of the generals was an internal affair of the army and that she need not worry, the men were arrested for their alleged involvement in the coup attempt and affiliation with the PKI. She and her husband though did not worry about their own safety as they felt they had not done anything wrong. As they later discovered, however, they and millions of other people in Indonesia would all have reason to worry.

At about 7 o’clock on the night of Oct. 16, a group of armed youth came to Ibu Surati’s house asking for her husband. As he was not home, they ordered her to immediately follow them to the subdistrict director’s office. With surprise, Ibu Surati noted that the youngsters were masked as she recognised all of them as her former pupils. The familiarity of the youngsters and her clear conscience gave her no reason not to follow the youngsters as she thought she had nothing to fear.

When they arrived at the office, however, the subdistrict director was not there. Instead, several policemen in civilian clothes awaited her and took her to the sectional police station. There she was questioned by one of the officers with whom she was acquainted. He told her that she was here to be protected.

“From what do I have to be protected?” she asked.

“The situation now is not safe,” he said, “so we have to protect you. Tomorrow I’m going to bring you to the town hall.”

Hence, on the next day, Oct. 17, Ibu Surati picked up her daughter, who had spent the night with a neighbour, and they were detained in the town hall.

When she arrived, Ibu Surati’s husband had already been brought to the town hall. Although they were among the first to be detained, the town hall filled up quickly until, according to Ibu Surati, more than 1,000 detainees lived in its empty rooms. The detainees were mostly simple people: labourers, peasants and people who earned a living selling traditional medicine or food. The women and men were then separated. Among those detained were many other teachers she knew. Since they all felt they had done nothing wrong, they remained calm and had no fear. The detainees were guarded by paramilitary youth groups under the command of Col. Sarwo Edhie, the army colonel responsible for many massacres of alleged PKI members and conspirators in the coup attempt of Sept. 30, especially in Central and East Java.

Soon after she moved into the town hall, Ibu Surati heard stories about the torture of male prisoners. According to what she heard, those tortured were forced to confess that they had been in Jakarta around Sept. 30 and were involved in the coup attempt and the PKI. With horror, she learned about the torture of a friend, the principal of a reputable senior high school, who was forced to confess his involvement in the coup. Moreover, he was asked to state the name of his president. His answer?quot;the great leader of the revolution, President Sukarno”—was followed by a severe beating with a sickle, for he was expected to utter the name of Gen. Suharto, the person who masterminded the massacres of 1965 and 1966 and who used them as a means to become president of Indonesia and rule the country until 1998.

In addition to paramilitary groups, the prisoners were partly guarded by military officers. Ibu Surati recalls that one night an air force officer who guarded her room told her that he had received orders to kill all the prisoners in the town hall.

“Ibu,” he said, “I have been assigned a task.” 

“What task?” she asked.

“We have been ordered to execute all prisoners,” he replied.

After this news, Ibu Surati and the other prisoners in her room lived in constant fear. Every day could be the day their execution was to take place. In the end, however, they heard from the same officer that he had talked to Col. Sarwo Edhie and that he had refused to fulfil his task. Consequently, the summary execution of all prisoners in the town hall was prevented.

After she had been detained in the Solo town hall for one year, she was moved to a prison in Ambawara in Central Java where she was detained for about five years. The prisoners here consisted of other teachers, students as young as 12 years old, university lecturers and other members of the intelligentsia. During her whole detention, Ibu Surati was never brought before any court, was never found guilty of any crime and was never told why she was being detained.

In the military-run camp, the detainees lived in poor conditions in barracks of 50 to 70 people. Ibu Surati and the other prisoners also suffered from the harsh treatment and arbitrary punishment of the guards. In addition, the barracks were dirty, and there were insufficient sanitary facilities. Moreover, the daily rations of food never satisfied the prisoners’ hunger. They survived mainly because some prisoners were sent food by their families and shared this with the other detainees. For Ibu Surati, who was sent food by her neighbours, parents of her former students and the illiterate people she had taught, it was this solidarity among the prisoners that made the hard life in Ambawara bearable.

Soon after her arrival in Ambawara, Ibu Surati received news that all her property had been seized. Government officials had taken her furniture and other items, and the small petrol station she and her husband had run had been dismantled and taken away. She also learned that her house was now inhabited by a civil servant. Fortunately, some neighbours managed to save many of her important documents.

Discrimination and Hardship after Imprisonment

While Ibu Surati was detained until 1971, her husband, who had been moved from the town hall to the Sasanomulyo prison in Solo, was released in 1968. He and their daughter visited Ibu Surati as often as they could. They were allowed to see each other only from a distance. A barbed wire fence forced them so far apart from each other that they could communicate only by shouting.

After her release in 1971, Ibu Surati was brought back to Solo by a government official. Since her house had been taken away from her, the small family had to rent a room in a boarding house. Her husband had not been allowed to return to his work as a teacher after his release in 1968 and now worked as a car washer.

Upon her return, she was issued a special identity card that indicated she was a former political prisoner; and for several years, she was obliged to report monthly to the subdistrict director. Until today, she has to renew her identity card every five years unlike ordinary Indonesians aged 60 years old or above who receive a lifelong identity card. Meanwhile, Ibu Surati found, just like her husband, that she was not allowed to return to her former profession as a teacher, and thus, she had to find other ways to make a living.

Fortunately, she did not share the fate of many other ex-political prisoners as her neighbours treated her as a friend and helped her in any way they could. In the beginning, for instance, they gave her food and money. Later they helped her find work—first by selling rice, then in a textile factory and later they supported her so she could open a small kiosk on the side of the street selling food and newspapers.

Ibu Surati and her husband though struggled hard to support themselves and their daughter. Their efforts to support themselves were not made any easier when they discovered they had to pay higher school fees than other families for the primary education of their daughter. Moreover, during her first semester of secondary school, she was dismissed because of the background of her parents as former political prisoners. Even today the thought of this injustice saddens Ibu Surati.

“They told me not to be angry,” recalls Ibu Surati, “but, of course, I was. This is unjust. I always treated the school staff with respect, and I fulfilled all my obligations as a good citizen. We are not PKI. I suffered; my child suffered. My only hope now is for my grandchildren to lead a normal life.”

She and other former political prisoners, however, have not been able to fight against this injustice. The fear created by the massacres and the political imprisonment, the social stigma and pressure, forced her to remain silent.

“They took my work, my house, my dignity, but I just remained calm,” she says.

Although she was not allowed to return to her former workplace, Ibu Surati never received an official letter of dismissal. In 1980 or 1981, she wrote a letter to the minister of public welfare demanding her rights as a civil servant and teacher as well as official clarification of her status as a civil servant. She also asked the Dept. of Education and Culture, the village head and subdistrict director, but they all refused to be responsible for her.

Today Ibu Surati lives in Jakarta together with other women who became political prisoners in the wake of the 1965-1966 massacres, and she is actively involved in the advocacy of her rights and those of other victims of this tragedy. When asked what justice would mean for her today, she stresses that “the government should rehabilitate us; compensation is not so important.” She wants to be treated equal before the law and administration, wants her status clarified and her reputation to be restored. Moreover, she wants to be cleared from the PKI stigma and hopes for equal opportunities for her grandchildren. She does not want another generation to face the same discrimination she has had to endure.

Anwar Umar (Photo: Fabian Junge, AHRC)

Anwar Umar: ‘I Do Not Want to Die without Meaning in My Room or on My Mattress’Since he was young, Anwar Umar’s life centred around organisational and political activity. Born in 1929 as the sixth child of a farmer in a village near Lampung on the island of Sumatra, he went to the Lampung as a young boy. Here he soon began his political career. At the age of 16, he joined a military group during the Japanese occupation and after the end of World War II rose to the rank of sergeant during the independence struggle against Indonesia’s Dutch colonial master.

In 1950, he went to Jakarta to seek his fortune. After working as a stenographer for two years, Umar accepted a civil service position in the newly established Transport and Communications Dept. He was married in 1951 and later became the father of eight children.

During his 14 years in Jakarta, Pak Umar joined various political organisations. He was active in an association of veterans of the independence struggle, became the secretary-general of a union of civil servants in the transportation sector and joined a movement demanding provincial status for Lampung. As a result of this latter involvement, he returned to Lampung in 1964 to work as an assistant to the governor of the newly established Lampung Province. Soon he was elected as the secretary-general of the Lampung division of Serikta Buruh Se-Indonesia (All-Indonesia Labour Union), a non-partisan trade union. Although he admits that the union’s interests were similar to those of the PKI, he stresses that he never formally participated in any political party. Through the events of Sept. 30 in 1965 in far away Jakarta, however, Pak Umar’s political activities were ultimately restricted, and the remainder of his life was relegated to the margins of society.Arrest and Imprisonment

Soon after Sept. 30, 1965, the police and military began arresting alleged PKI members and functionaries in Lampung. Although Pak Umar was not a member of the party, a district leader close to him advised him to leave for Jakarta and go into hiding. Before he left, however, he signed a three-page document denying any affiliation or involvement with the PKI.

On Oct. 23 that year, Pak Umar left for Jakarta to live in the area around the Government Printing Office. He arrived late at night, and a man identifying himself as a messenger from the rukun warga (neighbourhood office), or RW, shortly came up to him and told him to report to the person in charge of the neighbourhood. When Pak Umar entered the office, however, he was surprised to be met by a group of military officers and several other men who had been summoned. The officers ordered him to sit down at gunpoint, and one of them shouted, “Which one of you is Anwar Umar?” After the officer had shouted several times, Pak Umar stood up and identified himself. He was then taken to the Mis Tijijih Building in the Pasar Senen area of Jakarta where he was detained for one night without any food. This night was the beginning of an 11-year nightmare of imprisonment under degrading and inhumane conditions.

Not knowing why he had been arrested, he was moved to Jatinegara Prison the next morning, which was guarded by a unit of the military police. The first few nights he had to sleep in the open space of the prison yard with about 800 other detainees. When the number of prisoners swelled to about 3,000 during the next three days, Pak Umar was moved into a cell occupied by about 60 other prisoners. Because the cell was too overcrowded to lie down, no one could sleep. Some prisoners in the hot and stuffy cell even drank their own urine as no drinking water was provided.

After several days, they were moved to Cipinang Prison. In the hot afternoon sun, they were ordered to strip down to their underwear and crawl into their cell on all fours. Whoever looked back was kicked by a guard with heavy military boots. Overcrowding was again a part of prison life with about 45 prisoners per cell. For one week, Pak Umar and his cellmates were left to themselves without any food or water. After one week, his family discovered where he was detained and visited him. They brought him food and water, but Pak Umar felt sad that there was not enough to share with all of his cellmates.

His inhumane prison conditions, however, were not his only problem; for after several days at Cipinang, Pak Umar was physically tortured, an experience of intense suffering which would leave a wound on his mind for the rest of his life.

On the day his torture began, as he passed through the prison yard, he could already hear the heart-wrenching screams of a woman in great pain. He was led into a separate room where police officers bound his hands with electric wire that was connected to a 20-volt battery. They then tortured him with electric shocks, causing such pain that Pak Umar screamed and cried and his whole body bounced up and down and trembled.

After the electric shocks, he was ordered to sign a confession. Among other things, this confession stated that he was a courier for the PKI between Lampung and Jakarta and that he had conspired to murder five generals. Strangely, the document did not mention the names of these generals. Pak Umar was confused and did not understand what he was being asked to sign as he was not aware at this point in time of the events of Sept. 30.

When he refused to sign the document, he was brought into another room where about 10 police and military officers, as well as a public prosecutor, awaited him. They started beating him heavily with their fists. One police officer named Ahmad also hit him with a chair until it broke under the weight of the blows. Another officer then grabbed his head and hit it against the wall several times.

Bleeding, bruised and hardly able to walk, Pak Umar was brought back to his cell. There a friend, who was a member of the Central Committee of the PKI, whispered to him: “Sign it [the confession]. It is better than dying or being an invalid for the rest of your life. Later we will bring the case to court, and everything will work out fine for us.” In the end, when brought back to the torture chamber, Pak Umar took the advice of his friend and signed the confession.

He was never brought before a court, however, and was never given an official, legal verdict. Instead, he was soon moved to Tangerang Prison where he was held until 1976.

Like the other prisons where he had been held, conditions in this prison were also poor. The rice for the prisoners was mixed with glass splinters or sand so that many prisoners died of internal bleeding or malnutrition.

“The food they gave us was only intended to make us die slowly,” recalls Pak Umar.

In order to survive, he tried to clean his rice and separate it from the glass or sand. However, this was near to impossible, and soon his health deteriorated. When he was scheduled to be deported to Buru Island, it was only because he suffered from malnutrition, malaria and hepatitis that he did not end up in this infamous concentration camp. Instead, he was brought to a prison in Salemba where he received weekly health check-ups and medical treatment. After six months, he was returned to Tangerang Prison. Now he and his fellow prisoners had to work for a farming and animal husbandry project, the revenue of which was for the military. For his labour, Pak Umar received nothing except some extra food.

Life after Prison

Pak Umar was released on Sept. 26, 1976, after receiving a letter from the Komando Pemulihan Keamanan dan Ketertiban (Command for the Restoration of Security and Public Order), or Kopkamtib, signed by a person named Capt. Sudomo. For another three months, he was put under house arrest. Afterwards, he was not allowed to leave Jakarta for six months and had to report to the military police weekly. When the period of his house arrest concluded, he moved to Rawasari in East Jakarta.

Although Pak Umar worked as a civil servant for more than 12 years, he never received a pension. His identity card bore the label Eks Tahanan Politik (Ex-political Prisoner), or ET, which branded him a Communist and traitor in the eyes of the State and larger part of society. Because of this status, he was denied access to further work in the public service sector and lost his right to a pension as well. Moreover, there was no social or public institution to take care of his welfare or others like him because of the hostility against him and other former political prisoners.

Hence, after his release, Pak Umar’s hard and lonely struggle for survival at the margins of society began. In prison, he had learned how to do massage from a fellow prisoner; and for the first year after his release, he supported himself with this skill. Afterwards, he worked as an English-Indonesian translator in a small enterprise. Later, between 1982 and 1984, he was a scholar at an Islamic foundation, for, among other skills, he knew how to read Arabic, recite Koranic verses and pronounce the ritual prayers. When the elderly scholar who gave him this responsibility became sick and gave up his position, Pak Umar could not continue this job, however. It was clear that other scholars in the foundation would not want a former political prisoner who had been branded a Communist to work for them, although Pak Umar was always careful to conceal this stigma.

Pak Umar was also denied his right to free assembly, to form organisations and was subjected to surveillance by the person responsible for his neighbourhood—the rumah tetangga or rukun warga (RT or RW)—the lowest administrative unit in Indonesia. For example, he had to report when he received visitors and was not allowed to receive or talk to foreigners coming to the neighbourhood. He faced discrimination not only from the person in charge of the neighbourhood but also from many of his former neighbours who related to him with distrust and hostility.

The bitterest experience after his release, however, was the rejection of his family. He had missed them and craved to be with them for 11 years, and now, when the dreams of his days in prison were almost realised, he painfully found that his family, in effect, no longer existed.

His wife had stopped visiting him in prison after several years. At the end of his house arrest, Pak Umar returned to his family and stayed with them for several days; but after the second night, he learned that his wife had married another man in the belief that he had been sent to the Buru Island prison camp and died there. She did not want him to live with her again though. In rage, Pak Umar was about to physically harm his wife when his eldest child and neighbours separated them. Since then, Pak Umar has lived alone and has had no contact with his wife, although they were never formally divorced.

Pak Umar also deeply regrets that he was not able to even support his children’s primary education. Even sadder, his eldest son committed suicide in 1975 when Pak Umar was still in prison. Seeing no future in his life, he hung himself from a tree in front of his house. Pak Umar learned about this tragedy only after his release. Until today, Pak Umar hardly has any relationship with his children, which he blames on the long separation from them and the confrontation above with his wife. His life without a family though has made his struggle more difficult and lonely.

The year 1998 was a time of great political turmoil and change for Indonesia. For Pak Umar, this was the moment to become politically active once again. He joined student demonstrations calling for Suharto to step down and even made a speech during one of them. In late 1998, after the downfall of Suharto, Pak Umar and other former political prisoners formed the Komite Aksi Pembebasan Tapol-Napo (Action Committee for the Release of Political Prisoners), or KAPTN, which seeks the release of individuals imprisoned for political reasons under Suharto.

Because he has not been able to find work for a long time and did not receive support from his family, he now depends on the good will of people in his neighbourhood or at the human rights group Kontras (Commission for Disappearances and Victims of Violence) where he has worked as a volunteer for the past few years.

Today Pak Umar, by all standards, lives a life of poverty. He occupies a room of only five square meters. He lives alone, has to cook for himself, clean and repair his own clothes and does not have a regular income. He can only rely on himself and does not want to be a burden to anyone, he says.

Nevertheless, Pak Umar continues to struggle against political injustice, not only against him and other victims of 1965, but also on behalf of those who suffered for more than three decades during the Suharto regime. For himself, justice today chiefly means rehabilitation, which would include the end of all discriminatory practices against former political prisoners. For example, he wants a lifelong identity card, just like every other Indonesian citizen above 65 years of age, instead of being required to renew his identity card every five years. Moreover, he insists that the government clarify the historic events surrounding the 1965 tragedy so that he is no longer considered unpatriotic and a traitor by society. Lastly, he demands compensation for his life of suffering. To realise these demands, he vows to continue his search for justice:

“I want to keep on fighting—for myself and for others. If I die, I do not want to die without meaning in my room or on my mattress. I want to die in the middle of struggle between my friends. This is my biggest hope. I do not desire anything else.”

Sumimi: A Day at Work Ends in Nearly 10 Years in Prison

Sumimi, daughter of a policeman and homemaker in a family of six, was born in Banyumas in Central Java and schooled in Sukabumi. With an education up to the secondary school level, she mostly held administrative jobs. She began her active role in Gerakan Wanita Indonesia (Gerwani), or the Indonesian Women’s Movement, in 1954 and even became the director of Gerwani’s office in Wonosobo. In 1959, she transferred to the education department of the organisation. Gerwani was an Indonesian-wide women’s movement that concerned itself with giving free education to those who were illiterate and poor. After the coup of Sept. 30, 1965, Gerwani was labelled as a part of the PKI. Through radio and newspaper propaganda, Suharto spread the myth that members of Gerwani had mutilated and performed occultlike sexual rituals with the six generals and a colonel on the night before they were dumped into the well known as Lubang Buaya. This myth was used to instil in the Indonesian population an image of the PKI as something evil and to justify the subsequent cruel treatment of Gerwani’s members.

A Decade of Detention

A normal day in the Gerwani office in Wonosobo was interrupted on Nov. 17, 1965, by a visit by the district military command (KODIM). Tugiman, a KODIM officer, asked for her husband; but when the officer was told that her husband was in Bandung on a family-related visit, he requested Sumimi to come to the KODIM office to give her statement. He did not tell her though why he needed a statement. He assured her that she would be back home when her husband returned from his trip. Nov. 17 though was the first day of her detention, a period of imprisonment that lasted almost a decade.

Although there was no viable grounds for her detention, Sumimi suspected that, since her husband was not available, she was detained instead. Her husband had been the secretary of Barisan Tani Indonesia, or BTI (Indonesian Peasant’s Front), as well as the leading representative of the peasant division of the People’s Labour Association.

Sumimi met her husband in the same detention centre one-and-a-half weeks after her unlawful arrest. That was the last time she ever saw him though. During the following months, she heard he was transferred to Wonosari in Yogyakarta Province where Sumimi’s relative Pati in Wonosari was the last to see him. Sumimi’s husband and thousands of others were rumoured to have been discarded at the infamous Luwung Grubuk, a water drainage pipe that ran directly to the sea. No one was ever shot there but rather was blindfolded with their hands bound with wire, thrown into the luwung (drainage pipe) and then sucked into the ocean.

Sumimi had her own plight to overcome, however. She and 21 others were transferred to Wirogunan in Yogyakarta Province on the back of a truck and then again months later to an all-female detention centre in Bukit Duri in Jakarta where she remained for nearly 10 years. The closest she ever got to a trial or any other process of justice was in the early days of her detention in Wonosobo when the prosecuting attorney of Wonosobo brought her to an orphanage to be interrogated. As an officer of Gerwani, she was capriciously accused of attempting to alter the state ideology of Pancasila that advocates a belief in one God, humanitarianism, nationalism as expressed in the unity of Indonesia, consultative democracy and social justice. She was also accused of taking part in a three-month military training programme in Lubang Buaya, the site where the seven high-ranking military officers had been killed by the so-called Sept. 30 Movement. Sumimi only offered negligible verbal opposition during her interrogation for fear of being tortured or raped or any of the other oft-heard notorious punitive actions.

Moreover, she suffered from being separated from her family. Her children were not allowed to visit her. They were even told repeatedly that their mother had been killed after she was transferred from Wonosobo. It was only good fortune that Sumimi’s cousin worked at the same detention centre in Jakarta and helped inform her family that Sumimi was still alive.

There were no other investigations to support Sumimi’s defence until February 1974 when officials from the World Health Organisation (WHO) probed into the matter and concluded that detainees in Jakarta, like Sumimi, only wanted to return home.

Unfortunately, Sumimi’s experience was not unique. Many others who were only remotely linked to Gerwani faced a similar predicament, reflecting the pervasiveness of injustice following the tragedy of 1965.

Life after Imprisonment

Sumimi’s attempt to return to a life of normalcy became an arduous struggle. She had to deal with the loss of her husband, unemployment and social stigmatisation. She tried to search for her husband in several detention centres but to no avail. Her former civil servant registration number, or Nomor Induk Pegawai (NIP), as well as her job at the government office where she had previously worked before joining Gerwani was taken over by new personnel as though Sumimi did not exist anymore. She, however, never received any monetary damages for the loss of her position years ago, much less any compensation for her detention in prison. She had to set up a food stall by the street to sustain herself and her family, at least temporarily. The support she received from her extended family and fellow church members did alleviate some of her hardships, but life was never the same again.

Sumimi lost a good portion of her life to the obscure and murky politics of the time. Indonesians under Suharto not only had to fear being labelled as Communists because that was not the only excuse for a person to be arbitrarily arrested and imprisoned. As Sumimi’s experience has shown, as long as one was regarded to have questionable political affiliations, they could unjustly suffer for years without any legal structure to protect their rights.

Remembering the Communist Party (PKI) in the post Suharto era.

G30S PKI

Under General Suharto, after 1984, every September 30th citizens, particularly schoolchildren, were obliged to watch Arifin C Noor’s propaganda film Pengkhianatan G30S/PKI (The Treason of the September 30 Movement and the Indonesian Communist Party), which portrayed the events of 1965, including the murders of six Indonesian Army generals on the night of the 30th, according to the official view, that is, that the murders constituted an attempt by the Communist Party to overthrow the government.


Pengkhianatan G30S PKI

The Executive Director of the Institute for Public Studies (IPS), Fadli Zon, however complains that these days the traditional view of events is being attacked from all sides and ordinary people are becoming confused.

The efforts to change the story of G30S/PKI and to make the PKI look like they were the victims and not the instigators keeps going on and is getting more and more intense.

There were now at least five versions of the events of 1965, he said, some of which blamed the PKI for part involvement in a coup attempt, some exonerated the PKI entirely, and some blamed the CIA and MI6.

Some of these alternative views managed to find their way into school history text books in 2004, which were later banned, and some of them then confiscated and publicly burned, as the authorities attempted to re-assert the primacy of the orthodox view of history.

Fadli said the aim of the PKI was always to establish a dictatorship of the proletariat and they had attempted to do so three times, in 1926, 1948, and then 1965. [1]

Kediri

Akhyar, a resident of Kanigoro village in Kediri, remembers how on 19th January 1965 thousands of Communist Party members attacked a meeting of the Indonesian Islamic Students association, (PII, Pelajar Islam Indonesia) being held in a mosque in the village. Some of the students were tortured and killed, he said.

Akhyar says however that after the events of September 30th local people had their revenge on the communists, and Kanigoro became a centre of anti-communist activity, with the bodies of murdered communists being buried in a mass grave, today called “Makam Parik”. [2]

Madiun

Madiun, like Kediri, was once known as a stronghold of the Communist Party, but the deputy mayor of the regency, Gandhi Yunita, said on 1st October, Pancasila Day, that he hoped this stigma had finally been erased.

Gandhi said that in the 1940’s the PKI moved its base from Solo to Madiun and in 1948 staged a rebellion in the town, led by Amir Muso, in an attempt to establish a Peoples’ Republic. In the village of Kresek in September 1948 Gandhi says communists murdered many clerics, policemen, teachers, health workers, and journalists, before their rebellion was crushed by the Siliwangi division of the Army. [3]

Even to this day the people of Madiun have not gotten over the psychological trauma of the PKI’s atrocities.

    Millions of people disappeared following the G30S incident – allegedly murdered by the ORBA regime — is that fact or fiction? If that is fiction, then the horrible story of G30S PKI may just be another tale.

    In politics, right or wrong depends on which side you are on.
    Morality takes a backseat. Honesty has a new name.

    Yup Andrew. Indonesia was a battleground for the US/NATO vs China/Soviet Union in the 60s.
    The US won it and with suharto’s help, took many indo natural resources afterwards.

    They also banned “The Year of Living Dangerously”, the 1983 Peter Weir film with Mel Gibson and Sigourney Weaver:

    IMDB page
    Wikipedia (English)
    (Indonesian, less detail)
    Fanpage

    persumably becaused it dared to challenge the official version of history, and to say some less than heroic things about Sukarno and the Indonesian military. It was allowed to be screened at Jakarta International Film Festival in 2000 under President Wahid, and was shown on Metro TV – minus a few scenes – in 2004.

    To learn about the truth of 1965 it seems to me to be worthwhile to read the entries of 30.9, 26.9 and 6.9 at http://www.overseasthinktankforindonesia.com/

    To come to terms with the crimes against humanity by Suharto and his gang, Indonesia should recognize the facts and should follow the lead of South Africa: the culprits who are still alive, should be tried by some tribunal of reconciliation.

    Those cold war days.
    US and Soviets/china used remotes in third world country for domination.
    It was a fight between two systems and the battlefield stretched far and wide, from central america to South East asia.
    In Vietnam alone more than a million died, including 50000 american GIs.
    These 2 ideologies are no different from religious ideologies. since the fall of the soviets, it is the islamic ideology that is fighting the US, each convinced their system is better than the other.
    A day will come when all men will see the futility in ideologies. Every person should impose a self discipline to honesty, love and refrain from lewdness, evil and profiteering/greed.

    Sputjam is surely wrong to equate democracy with other ideologies, as if they are commercial brands of toothbrush, equally useful.
    Communism, like its sister Nazism, was a homicidal dementia, which still has. sadly, many defenders even outside the remaining slave states where it holds sway. You can spot them by their almost invariable waffling when asked to condemn the marxist evil, always rubbishing on about ’social progress’ ( i.e. an irreligious anti-national ruling class replacing either free elections or a religious and patriotic ruling class), or often they give themselves away with open lies about Cuba’s great health services – which are of course reserved for Castor’s clique and foreign freedom-haters like Michael Moore.
    As for Islamist ideology, not to be confused with Islam as a religion, then we see what it means to impose on all nations – death to adulterers apostates, brutal floggings of kids and working men who dare to cuddle lovers or play cards, and banning mixed marriages.
    Let’s not kid ourselves. America’s way of life, and the West’s in general, has in the past been infinitely superior to any other system, and those non-West lands that have adopted it, South Korea, Free China, Japan, are much better off than any of their neighbours.
    As the Indonesians mentioned above clearly know, the PKI was a malignant cancer, just as any Communist party is, a current example being that in little Nepal. There the mainstream parties made the grave error of treating reds as normal politicians, despite their long record of terrorism. Now those Nepalese reds have realised they won’t win elections, so they have pulled out of the deal.
    They should be taken on and taken out. Like the PKI, who were excised and a good thing too.
  8. Oigal Says:

    Still at it hey Ross,you blood thirsty old facist! Cute words “who were excised and a good thing too” as if we are talking about like banning a political party or something. Too bad they also mean that hundreds of thousands of barely literate, village people were slaughtered by roving gangs of thugs and their children’s children are still being harrassed today (of course, many of those slaughtered weren’t even “token” communists).

    Tell us Ross how many women and children had to die before the end didn’t justify the means anymore.

    As for Nepal ..yea far better they revert to the old Monarchy, dang Serf’s getting above their station. Or are you really going to pretend that Nepal was/is a just and fair democracy?

  9. Sputjam Says:
    October 15th, 2007 at 10:20 pm
    I did not condemn democracy. If US is referred to, it meant capitalism. China embraced capitalism before England was formed, never mind the US.
    Capitalism flourished when a monetary unit was formed, making things easier to trade.
    Democracy has its flaws. In the US, the native indians were denied the right to vote until too late.
    If the voice of the majority is upheld, then what do the minorities do when they are subjected to unfair practices, such as in malaysia and singapore, or even in indonesia?
    In a multiracial settings, I think the vote of the majority will marginalised the minorities. Democracy works in a single ethnic entity, not in multiracial settings.Much like to european union, only by consensus will the minority voices be heard.
    The countries Ross mentioned as being successful have also eliminated religion from the government, as all government and mankind should, using common sense to promote good governance and a civil and caring society, and keeping the priests and dictators from enslaving the masses.
  10. Ross Says:
    October 17th, 2007 at 10:48 pm
    Well, ‘bloodthirsty old fascist’ (get your spelling right) is a step up from ‘frog, goose and dinsaur,’ as I was previously abused. I guess moving into political terminology from zoological is progress of sorts.
    Turning to serious commentators, Sputjam, I apologise if I misunderstood your views on America, and gladly accept your assurance that you believe in democracy.
    Whilst the free parts of Korea and China, and also Japan have no state-established churches or faiths, they do have freedom of religion and I rather think they operate in accordance with the religous/moral beliefs of the bulk of their citizens (though I am open to correction on this -no expert on Korean religion, among other things)
    As you say, the E.U. is incompatible with democracy, which Brits sense, and know from experience, hence their hostility towards it. ASEAN nations should beware siggestions that they imitate the Brussels Empire.
    Returning to the lunatic lefty Ogle…
    Nepalese politics may be worth arguing about, maybe, but the point I made was that the reds entered into a deal and left when they faced exposure to democratic elections. The other parties were, and are, unwilling to abolish the monarchy, wishing to transform their little nation into a constitutional kingdom, like Japan or Malaysia, which may not be perfect but are infinitely better and more free than any of Ogle’s pet tyrannies in Vietnam or Laos or Red China, which is what his ‘innocent’ PKI would have imposed on Indonesia. Yes, there were Indonesian peasants killed who shouldn’t have been, because they were conned by communist propaganda into PKI fronts. But the ‘intelligentsia’ knew very well what horrors lay in store if Adit and his comrades took power -why cry for them?
    ‘Bloodthirsty’ – you fellow-travellers never give up ignoring or making excuses (making omellettes, breaking eggs, etc) for the large and small holocausts in Thirties Ukraine and elsewhere or the Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald concentration camps (and I refer to the ones re-opened by Ogle’s Soviet ‘liberators’ in 1945 after the nazis had been evicted.)

    It is simply impossible you isn’t Ross. We have spoken about mis-direction and mis quoting before its dishonest and really a sad portrayal of a pint of view.

    Now you have managed to jump around the globe and the era, but avoided the point ‘How many of those Indonesian peasants (such a yesterday term) had to be killed before the end did not justify the means anymore, a 100,000, 200,000 a million”?

    Ogle’s pet tyrannies in Vietnam or Laos or Red China, or

    his ‘innocent’ PKI

    When did I say PKI was innocent??

    Could there be a sillier statements. Just because someone does not think its ok write off millions of people to support a far right tyranny does not make then a far leftist nor a communist.

    Here’s a tip Roscoe, just because some one finds your views on the world and your disregard of human life repugnant does not make them a leftist.

    Poor Wee Robbie Ogle!
    I offer riposte to his ignorant observation on Nepal and he flies off the handle, waggling his ‘Third Grade Debater’s Handbook’ and weeping over my sins of ‘misdirection.’ Mind you, his reference to a ‘pint of view’ may indicate a less than sober appraisal of other people’s opinions.

    Actually, this is a free forum and debate may go where it pleases, which makes its site much more interesting, but in any event, Oggly’s narrow focus is inherently misplaced, especially from a fellow-travelling lefty. (he is surely no righty!) because the marxist virus is a worldwide menace, and has been around for a long time. If we fail to put its Indonesian variant in a broad geo-political and historical context, we risk forgetting the nature and extent of its evil.
    Check your TGDH ,Oggle, and seek help for your problem of ‘repetition.’ I said already that it was not right that unlettered peasants should have been murdered. I see no need to repeat it again.
    Pity you don’t give a toss about the unlettered peasants murdered by Mao, Bela Kun, your dear old Uncle Joe and the others in your pantheon of dieties, not least the Kim Dynasty in North Korea, so admired by the PKI’s Aidit, who got what he deserved. Though of course your pink oggling heart is doubtless bleeding for him still.

    Ross,

    Oigal’s not a lefty. Seriously. Even if he was, the chardonnay socialists weren’t great friends of Mao once they found out what he really did.

    More to the point: the reds debate is over, pal. No-one, including the reds think Marxist-Leninism is a good way to run an economy anymore. You’re about 40 years out of date.

    In terms of Indonesia, history’s being re-written because the G30-S-PKI as depicted in the movie was just bullshit. The truth is pretty ugly for the left. Peasants killed peasants, often over little more than an extra rice field they’d been arguing about for generations or because some neighbor got to marry the prettiest girl.

    But we just don’t know what drove the whole thing. The answers are lost in the shadows of 1965. We can, however, find them, through the light of scholarship and debate. But yammering away at cobwebbed arguments, my friend, isn’t helping anything, anyone, and is no credit to the memory of those lost in the night.

    Has this Ross been like down a well for the past two decades?

    I’d like to give him a news flash:

    It’s 2007.

    The Soviet Union no longer exists.

    China is only really communist in name only.

    Vietnam is opening up for trade.

    Castro is literally on his last legs and will die soon as will communism on that crumbling island.

    North Korea is an internationally recognized basket case which no country would like to emulate.

    No one gives a shit about Nepal.

    Better Ross finds some contemporary things to fear like radical Islam; for example.

  16. Ross Says:
    October 19th, 2007 at 5:40 pm
    Well, three critics, but more articulate and infinitely less infantile than Ogle.
    Okay, Sam, so you think communism is a dead duck. I wish it were truly plucked but if you look at Latin America, Chavez is coercing Venezuela down the Castro road to tyranny, and others may be close behind. Communism of course is economic garbage, but the despotic political core holds firm in all CP-run countries. Prisons for dissenters, no free unions, no opposition press or parties -it hasn’t changed essentially, still denies its subjects what we often take for granted.
    Ogle doesn’t care about that, merely whines about the past, eager to have the PKI rats rehabilitated- that’s why I don’t let it drop, because Ogle’s type loves to paint vermin like the PKI as some kind of agrarian reformers- not so. They were vicious totalitarian hypocrites, like all CPs everywhere.
    And yes, I see the menace of Islamist fanatics. But most everyone does, whereas uninformed people might think PKI deserved sympathy, if Comrade Ogleski were to have his white-washing way.
    Achmad, and Jamma, you are too quick to count them out. There were thousands, millions of marxists around until the Berlin Wall fell- did they all just disintegrate? Universities were churning them out through the 60s and 70s and now those grads are the profs and professionals – of course some grew up, but a lot still evince every sign of ideological infection. Cultural marxist power-grabs would make a nice next topic!
  17. Achmad Sudarsono Says:
    October 20th, 2007 at 12:18 pm
    Ross,

    A better effort. And yes, since the Berlin wall fell, it’s been possible to be an intellectual Marxist. But as a way to run a society, it’s been discredited for a long, long time. Chavez’s antics are more populism than Marxism, who very few people have actually read, including you, my friend.

    Marx’s analysis of globalization, written 150 years ago was prophetic, quoted by the likes of arch-liberal Thomas Friedman in the World Is Flat just last year. Modern neoclassical economics hasn’t matched his analysis of recession and depression. Above all, it’s very unlikely the red-guard thugs of the PKI would have understood it.

    Pal, Oigal ain’t a communist. He ain’t. Oigal’s a gentleman skeptic and free thinker who’s sometimes conservative, sometimes liberal but never communist.

    We don’t know what happened in 1965. The CIA was probably involved. Suharto probably re-wrote history. The PKI probably couldn’t been as bad. Alot of neighbours killed neighbours for sure. We just don’t know. The answers are lost in the night, but as mentioned previously, squeezing the episode into cold war rhetoric won’t shed any light or uncover the lost history.

    Truely scary, AS on my side, tis but weird world!

    Now back to our neocon Ross. Sorry my spelling errors annoy you, wait …no I am not. Lucky I used “pint” instead of word litre as it is about 30 years to recent for you Rip Van Winkle.

    the marxist virus is a worldwide menace

    straight from the Salem Witch Trials in

    Actually what is a greater menace, is fanatics like you who believe its ok to slaughter thousands because they don’t support those “ism” that those in power do

    I do admire your squirming although how you equate todays Nepal into (the)

    Indonesian variant in a broad geo-political and historical context

    is feat that even David Blaine would be proud of. By the way the “pint” still stands if you are going to use Nepal as a example fo the red menace you really should be prepared to defend its alternative not duck away to Japan. Here’s a tip, stick with the Koreas, they make a far better (albeit hardly relevent as Nth Korea is a sick abberation of the norm) case for your dated debate.

    You are of course correct that Communism leads to

    Prisons for dissenters, no free unions, no opposition press or parties -it hasn’t changed essentially, still denies its subjects what we often take for granted.  

    how is that different from the world you so desire, you have already stated that it was only a “shame” that a few peasants got slaughtered in 1965. In fact could you not say the same existed in Indonesia after the PKI was routed and those couple of hundred thousand peasants were killed. “Prisons for dissenters, no free unions, no opposition press or parties” sounds awfully post 65 Indonesia to me or are you going to quote the free press of Nepal to me. Do we really want to go into all the other despots raised and supported in the fight against the red menace. If you travel too far to the left or right the results are the same ..always the same.

    D

    Been a bit busy today do feel free to spell check if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    ‘few people have actually read…including you my friend..’ Achmad, you may have great self-perceived qualities but being a dukun ain’t one of them. Please don’t assume too much in your attempt at intellectual machtergreifung.
    As a wise doctor studies disease, of course I studied marxism, to postgraduate level, though the mention of higher education will presumably provoke a resentful jibe from the Ogglet, who in turn obviously ain’t very well-travelled, as he’d know that pints are alive and well in the Mother Country.
    The comparison with Nepal today and Indonesia pre-1965 is pretty obvious, collaboration in coalitions as the PKi had been operating under Sukarno, not that far different from the pretence of fair play and democratic discussion in Nepal, until the Reds sussed they were on a loser if free elections were held. Now they are doing their best to scupper things.
    Poor Ogglet can’t get his head round the fact that we can talk to each other as liberals, conservatives, social democrats – but communists are a breed apart. Yes. they can see the light, become good citizens, but until that happens, they should be beyond the pale. Otherwise you just bring up another generation of gullible Ogglets who think reds are like normal folk. And whose literacy is such that they interpret ‘it’s a shame’ as ‘it’s okay’,
    Sorry Achmad, I am prepared to listen to your arguments but not accept that such a sad little rude-boy as the Ogglet qualifies as a ‘gentleman.’ You degrade the word by bracketing it with his ‘name.’
  22. Achmad Sudarsono Says:

    Ross,

    OK. Reading is different from understanding. Let’s not get waylaid into an arcane debate about what Marx really meant, but the fact is most people in academia don’t have either the technical knowledge or concentration to get through his economic arguments, which actually drew heavily on Adam Smith, believe it or not. But let’s take you on your word.

    As a humble ukele player and pencak silat teacher, I don’t know what machtergreifung. means. Please explain.

    Let’s cut to the chase:

    Why are you picking on Oigal ? He’s really a pretty fair-minded and decent chap and seriously, is no communist.

    Why are you whipping a dead horse (communism) ?

  23. Oigal Says:
    October 22nd, 2007 at 10:32 am
    Ross makes a fine spokesman for the NEW (OLD?) Order, you don’t agree with my repression and summary imprisionments etc etc ergo you must be a far left communist!

    Edgar Hoover..Where are you??

  24. Oigal Says:
    October 22nd, 2007 at 10:34 am
    Oh…and Ross…temper temper now..
  25. Ross Says:
    October 22nd, 2007 at 8:46 pm
    Seriously, Achmad, I do not pick on people, unless they are very infantile people who mix into adult debate. They should be seen and not heard if they cannot hold a steady discussion without the sort of tantrums evinced in the post just above this.
    I do not let temper dictate my posts, but type them equably, addressing civilised critics in a civilised manner. However, I reserve the right to make exceptions of little reds like Ogglet, who first made my acquaintance with the greeting ’sac of pus’ in another thread. That was his sophisticated analysis of a theory supported by many historians, notably the Dutchman Dake, and which accords with all that’s known of communist practice everywhere.
    I must express surprise at your claim that he is not a commie, or fellow-traveller, but then, as you say, ‘reading is different from understanding.’ I shall take you at your word also, and assume you read all his gunk yet did not see the cultural marxist undercurrents. (like his last throwaway phrase on J. Edgar Hoover- types like Ogglet usually parrot the Comintern smear about Hoover, regardless of the fact it was a figment of some NKVD agents’s imagination.)
  26. Achmad Sudarsono Says:
    October 22nd, 2007 at 9:02 pm
    Ross,

    Well, if you want get obsessed with a debate that’s over for the time being go ahead. No one will stop you. But Oigal works for some sort of mining, oil and gas company, in a sector which at the moment is run on very capitalist principles, so unless he’s a well-pumper or minesite satpam, which I doubt, he’s probably in favour of the system that rewards him well – capitalism.

  27. Sputjam Says:
    October 22nd, 2007 at 11:00 pm
    Communism activities in asia was backed by china. It was succesful in vietnam, as it has a very sizeable chinese population, and most chinese merely folllow the ideology of the motherland.
    In Malaysia, the radio broadcast of communist party of Malaya was from beijing. Even their leaders reside there, letting the peasant army of mostly chinese immigrants do all the fighting.
    I am not sure who the main backers of PKI are. But sukarno and zhou-En-lai were bossum buddies. During their time, the non-aligned movement were in their hands. I heard, after the downfall of PKI, millions of migrant chinese communities in indonesia either abandoned or fled to neighbouring countries or returned to china if they managed to escape persecution. There are chinese in china who still have the ability to speak bahasa indonesia.
    Communism did not get much support in the phillipines and thailand, probably because the chinese communities there fled communism.

    Ross, However outdated and silly your “pints” may be, it’s not nice to tell “big fat porkies” in order to belittle someone.

    “Ogglet, who first made my acquaintance with the greeting ’sac of pus’ in another thread.”

    Naughty man what was actually said was

    Does anyone with an ounce of education and free thought actually believe that crock of pus anymore. Belly laughs all round, except for the hundreds of thousands who were slaughtered to satisfy a certain someone’s lust for power of course.

    Tad different context, most would agree. Anyway you have become boring again till next time

    Wait thats not fair..not totally boring

    parrot the Comintern smear about Hoover, regardless of the fact it was a figment of some NKVD agents’s imagination

    Is an absolute classic which stands tall on its own paraniod and delusional merits.. Seriously well done.

  29. Ross Says:
    October 23rd, 2007 at 7:58 pm
    Here he goes again, accusing his antagonist of lying because I used the word sac instead of crock. They are both containers, and he used the phrase to describe his opponent’s explanation of what happened in 1965. By his own age-ist account, he was probably not born then and so should read other people’s books (besides the Jakarta Post’s pin-up lefty authors)who have something useful to say.

    Achmad, many’s the red who battens on capitalist bucks to feed his face while subverting the system that feeds him.
    But, now, friends and comrades, far from being obsessed, I am bored witless with Ogletski’s ranting fury, and until there is a new and more interesting thread, I propose to bow out, leaving the minerals satpam/commissar to froth about delusions whilst he swallows red propaganda whole. Of course the Soviet Secret Services never smeared anybody, Ogski, they were just nice guys who enjoyed chess and torture. Bleat on, Og, or read the Venona Papers, or at least something other than the Jakarta Post’s poster-child authors.

  30. Oigal Says:
    October 24th, 2007 at 7:13 pm
    laugh, lots of abuse but nothing of interest Mr Hoover, don’t let the door hit you on the arse on the way out. However, I do apologise for using crock of pus to describe your sad version of history, it was way too kind.

Mandailing Menyangkal Kebatakannya Akibat Emosi Keagamaan

 

 

Posted by: tobadreams on: 9 Oktober, 2008

Namun dalam disertasi tersebut Uli selalu menyebut semuanya (Mandailing, Angkola, Toba, Karo, Pakpak dan Dairi) dengan nama Batak — misalnya penyebutan orang di Tanah Mandailing dengan kata “Mandailingbataksch” (Batak Mandailing). Dan, dapat disimpulkan kalau semua daerah itu memiliki akar budaya yang hampir sama, sehingga mempengaruhi aksara Batak yang memiliki banyak kesamaan satu sama lain.

Oleh : Ucok Lubis (Jerman)**

TOPIK seperti ini menarik sekali untuk dibahas, mengingat sebagian orang dari Mandailing masih mempertanyakan identitas kesukuannya.

Tetapi, sebelumnya aku mohon maaf kalau pendapatku ini dianggap tidak relevan, karena tidak bicara dengan bukti-bukti ilmiah seperti dilakukan Amang Zulkifli Lubis (lihat kotak komentar artikel “Ini Satu Lagi Bukti Bahwa Mandailing Adalah Batak“). Latar belakang aku bukan antropologi dan pengetahuan atas keidentitasan sukuku aku dapat dari keluargaku. Komentar yang akan kulontarkan berikut ini berdasarkan logika yang ada.

Aku sendiri tidak pernah ragu atau menolak untuk dibilang orang Batak, begitu pula seluruh keluarga besarku yang marga Lubis, Nasution, Pulungan, Rangkuti, dan lain-lain. Kami semua meyakini Mandailing itu bagian dari “bangsa Batak”. Menurutku, adanya emosi keagamaan yang berlebih saja, yang membuat sebagian orang dari tanah Mandailing menolak dikatakan Batak.

Selamat Idul Fitri, Mohon Maaf Lahir dan Batin

Posted by: tobadreams on: 30 September, 2008

Ini Lebaran pertama buat blog ini. Tentunya tidak demikian bagi Anda semua. Terlepas dari makna religiusnya bagi saudara-saudara kita yang muslim, Lebaran adalah peristiwa sosial-budaya yang penting dan melibatkan hampir semua orang di negara ini, terutama di kota-kota besar dan daerah-daerah yang heterogen.

Bagi orang Batak-Kristen yang tinggal di Tapanuli Selatan, Tanah Karo, Sumatera Timur, Jakarta, dan daerah-daerah lain di Indonesia; ikut merayakan lebaran dan mengucapkan Selamat Idul Fitri kepada para kerabat, tetangga, rekan kerja, dan relasi bisnis adalah hal yang sangat lumrah. Mereka menikmati perbuatan bijaksana itu sebagai kebajikan, solidaritas sosial, dan fiesta.

Lomang (Bukan Ketupat!), Makanan Khas Lebaran di Tapanuli Selatan

Posted by: tobadreams on: 29 September, 2008

Ciri khas Lebaran sebenarnya bukan hanya ketupat. Banyak sekali ragam kuliner yang menjadi makanan khas perayaan Idul Fitri di berbagai daerah, namun tidak diketahui oleh mayoritas warga Indonesia, lantaran media massa nasional terlalu jawa sentris.

Lomang, misalnya, adalah makanan khas dan bahkan sudah menjadi ikon Lebaran di kalangan etnis Batak yang beragama Islam, khususnya di Tapanuli Selatan. Lomang jauh lebih lezat– dan harum pula, dibandingkan dengan ketupat; seperti yang digambarkan dengan penuh cinta dan kerinduan oleh Halida Srikandini boru Pohan, dalam artikelnya yang terbaru ini.

Selamat menikmati,

Raja Huta

HUT XII HKBP Cal-USA, Ontario

(GobatakNews/Los Angeles)Huria Kristen Batak Protestan/gereja (HKBP) Cal-USA, Ontario merayakan HUT XII, Sabtu ( 31/3) lalu. Ibadah dihadiri oleh sejumlah Pendeta, Majelis dan jemaat, Gereja Kristen Masyarakat Indonesia, (GKMI) Colton., ICRC Arcadia , The Indonesian First Presbyterian Church (IPC) Fullerton, GPIC Pomona; IPC Colton, Indonesian Lutheran Church. Turut hadir IPC Immanuel, GMIM , IPC Redlands, Romo Godlif Sianipar gereja Katholik Orange Country dan GKPI Highland

Perayaan HUT ini juga dihadiri Bapak dan ibu Konjen RI, Los Angeles Subijaksono Sujono, Konsul KJRI Los Angeles Ibu Ciicilia Rusdiharini, Tigor Situmorang dan pengusaha multinasional Jakarta, Edison Sinaga dan isteri. Turut juga hadir hamba Tuhan yang pertama-tama melayani dan membimbing majelis HKBP Cal-USA, yakni Pdt. Dino Tumbuan , Pdt. Dr. Leo Siregar dan Ibu Pdt. Deetje Siregar sementara Firman disampaikan oleh Pdt. T.T. Naibaho.

Dihadapan jemaat yang dihadiri tidak kurang dari 278 orang itu, ketua majelis St. K.E. Sianipar menguraikan secara ringkas awal kehadiran HKBP pertama di USA. Menurutnya, ibadah keluarga dimulai pada hari Sabtu, 28 Agustus 1994 dikediaman St. K. E. Sianipar sementara pembawa firman Tuhan ketika itu Pdt Rina didampingi Pdt. Leo Siregar dan Ibu Pdt. Deetje Siregar.

Kemudian persekutuan keluarga ini berlanjut selama beberapa bulan hingga pada akhirnya Minggu 5 Maret 1995 ibadah secara resmi dimulai di gereja Reedemer Lutheran Church (RLC) ditandai dengan pelantikan St. KE. Sianipar sebagai guru jemaat pertama dan penahbisan enam orang penetua baru oleh Pdt. Blanke N. Woody dan Pdt. Dino Tumbuan didampingi Pdt. Dr. Leo Siregar dan Ibu Pdt. Deetje Siregar.

Ibadah berlangsung khidmat diisi dengan kidung pujian dari gereja-gereja tetangga dan Tigor Situmorang beserta Konsul Cicilia Rusdiharini.

Perayaan kali ini cukup berkesan dengan penampilan paduan suara gabungan kaum bapak dari tujuh gereja membawakan lagu” Kumulai dari diriku sendiri” ciptaan Postas Purba, penetua HKBP Kramat Jati, Jakarta.

Meski belum pernah latihan bersama namun paduan suara gabungan ini mengalir dan menggelegar. Sebelumnya, teks lagu tersebut telah dikirimkan oleh panitia HUT HKBP untuk dipelajari paduan suara kaum bapak digereja masing-masing.

Usai ibadah dilanjutkan acara perayaan dengan suguhan tembang-tembang manis bersama Tigor Situmorang, Wesly Silitonga, Trio Marturia dan Vocal Group The Lae’s. Ditengah acara perayaan Bapak dan ibu Konjen RI, Los Angeles Subijaksono Sujono menerima ulos dari majelis dan jemaat HKBP Cal-USA, Ontario.Sebelumnya pendeta RLC Ontario Rev Edward Blonsky dan isteri juga menerima ulos.

Pemberian ulos ini sebagai simbol ucapan selamat datang dan selamat bertugas diiringi harapan serta doa kiranya ” RI 1″ Los Angeles ini mendapat berkah dan tuntunan dari Allah Maha Kuasa selama menjalankan tugas khususnya di wilayah akreditasi KJRI, Los Angeles. Perayaan HUT ini semakin semarak manakala Konjen Subijaksono melantunkan sejumlah lagu daerah Jawa dan Tapanuli, ” untuk mengingatkan kita ketanah air” ujarnya usai memberikan kata sambutan sekaligus perkenalan kepada jemaat HKBP dan undangan.

Sukacita perayaan semakin semarak ketika “bapak rakyat” dan ibu berkenan turun membaur dan menari bersama dengan warga mengikuti olah vocal Tigor Situmorang dan Lae’S group yang didendangkan secara medley.Tak ketinggalan pengusaha multinasional Jakarta Edison Sinaga dan isteri serta konsul Cicilia ikut berlenggang lenso hingga akhir acara menjelang tengah malam.(bid publikasi/foto imanuel sianipar)

BATAK BUILD MONUMENT AS HIGH AS THE SKY. (sky is the limit) WHEN THEY GOT POWER AND MONEY RATHER THAN SOCIAL WELFARE FOR THEIR OWN CITIZEN OR POOR FAMILY.IS IT REALLY SHOWING OFF OR DUMB ?/or just human who live under the coconut shell?

October 12, 2008 at 12:33 am (Uncategorized) (, )

[

holben sinaga; batak news; ikuti jejak dua letjen, luhut panjaitan dan tb silalahi]

Hanya segelintir orang Batak kaya dan berpendidikan yang peduli pada kampung halaman.

Artikel ini kuterima di imelku, bataknews [at] gmail [dot] com. Ditulis oleh Holben Wesly Sinaga, seorang lelaki yang berasal dari Kabupaten Samosir, kini bekerja dan tinggal di Singapura.

PERTAMA KALI DALAM sejarah orang Batak seorang pensiunan Jenderal membangun sekolah di tanah Batak. Dari salah satu majalah Batak yang saya baca, Bapak Luhut Panjaitan membangun sekolah dengan kerjasama Del. Mahasiswa dengan nota bene bukan dari kalangan yang berada dan sebagian besar murid tersebut berasal dari kalangan menengah ke bawah.

Saya sangat terharu ketika membaca ulasan tersebut karena Pak Luhut sampai saat ini masih melakukan negosiasi kerja sama dengan MIT, Harvard, dan Universitas ternama lainnya di USA.

Betapa tidak, dengan kondisi mahalnya sekolah sekolah unggulan dengan tanpa beban beliau memikirkan generasi Batak yang selanjutnya. Kehadiran beliau ibarat menemukan oase di padang pasir. Tentunya betapa doa-doa dari para orang tua kepada keluarga Bapak Panjaitan dan tidak putus putusnya harapan supaya beliau semakin sering menoleh dan meningkatkan kualitas hidup orang Batak.

Apabila kita melihat jumlah orang Batak yang kaya, akan sangat mudah memberikan nama dan marga secara jelas. Namun sangat disayangkan harta dan kekuasaan belum pernah cukup dan belum terbuka mata hati untuk meningkatkan atau paling tidak membuka peluang yang lebih baik untuk anak-anak daerah Batak.

Coba anda pergi ke Muara, pemandangan yang sangat fantastis, green look dan fresh air. Namun dengan mudah anda menemukan rumah yang reot, kumuh dan kandang babi bersebelahan dengan alat tenun.

Air mata saya hampir jatuh karena saya tidak menyangka masih ada suku Batak yang hidup di bawah garis kemiskinan. Ketika saya berjalan jalan sore di Muara, ada seorang ompung yang mengais-ngais di tempat pembuangan sampah di tempat hotel saya menginap.

God! Tanah Batak dengan segala kekayaan alamnya, semuanya ada, air, tanah yang subur, alam yang indah, sekecap terlihat seperti awan-awan. I have lost my happy feeling. Saya marah, sedih dan ingin berontak. Ke manakah saudaraku Batak?

Kalau berbicara Anak ni Raja & Boru ni Raja, sepertinya kita semua adalah orang yang “wealthy” dan dalam posisi yang sangat terhormat. Masihkah kita berani mengatakan saya Boru atau Anak ni Raja, sementara salah satu saudara kita terseok-seok kehidupannya di daerah Batak?

Masihkah kita berani pulang kampung (bonapasogit), setiap hari-hari besar atau acara pesta hanya sekedar pamer? Masihkan kita berhak disebut sebagai Anak atau Boru ni Raja dengan membangun tugu hampir mencapai langit, sementara d isebelah tugu berdiri dengan reot gereja yang hampir rubuh dan tidak bisa direnovasi sebagus dengan tugu?

Dilema!!!
Generasi Muda Batak bangunlah! Putra daerah Batak dengan tingkat inteligency di atas rata-rata suku lain. Berdasarkan statistic, sarjana putra daerah Batak menempati ranking pertama (tulisan di harian Kompas tahun 2000-an, mohon minta literature ke Kompas).

Saya bertanya kepada diri saya sendiri, selama ini konstribusi yang paling yang nyata dari para kalangan intelek dan dengan kondisi ekonomi yang mapan, where does it goes to?

Pak Luhut Panjaitan adalah pahlawan buat para orang tua yang tidak mampu, di bawah garis kemiskinan. Anak anak dengan tingkat kecerdasan di atas rata-rata dirangkul dan dibina melalui sekolah yang didirikan di Tanah Batak.

Salut buat pak Luhut, profesi bapak adalah “Pelayan Tuhan”, yang tidak ada bedanya dengan seorang Nommensen yang datang ke tanah Batak.

“Masih adakah a dedicated person? Who’s next? I hope that I can get the answer soon!” [www.blogberita.com]

CATATAN BLOG BERITA:

Sedikit melengkapi data pada artikel lae Holben Sinaga, tokoh Batak pertama yang membangun sekolah unggulan di Tanah Batak bukanlah Letjen TNI Luhut Panjaitan, melainkan Letjen TNI TB Silalahi; yaitu SMA Plus Yayasan Soposurung di Balige.

Bagiku pribadi, terlepas dari kelemahan mereka dalam hal lain, kedua tokoh ini, Luhut dan TB, adalah perantau Batak yang benar-benar peduli pada pembangunan pendidikan di kampung halamannya.

Aku sangat tertarik dengan pendapat lae soal kebiasaan orang Batak membangun tugu. Benar memang, tidak sedikit orang kita Batak yang bangga, bahkan cenderung pamer, membangun makam orangtua atau tugu kakeknya sampai menghabiskan uang puluhan juta, sementara pinomparna [saudara mereka yang lain] masih banyak yang hidup susah dan perlu dibantu.

Artikel terbaru dalam diaryku baca di sini.

 


  1. Maridup Hutauruk

    Pembangunan tugu adalah sama dengan membangun identitas. jadi perlu juga dilakukan oleh kelompok marga-marga Batak. Kemiskinan adalah dilema kehidupan Bangsa Batak pada masa sekarang ini. Kenapa bisa terjadi pembangunan tugu di bonapasogit bagi marga-marga sementara pada saat yang bersamaan masyarakat bonapasogit tersemat gelar dibawah garis kemiskinan, tentu kedua hal adalah topik bahasan positip yang dapat memicu persatuan dan kesatuan untuk menunjukkan identitas Batak yang dahulu kala dikenal sebagai Bangsa Batak tetapi sekarang sudah tergilas menjadi sebutan puak atau suku.

    Semasa Bangsa Batak tertutup rapat dari dunia luar selama belasan ribu tahun, masyarakatnya hidup makmur sentosa rohani dan jasmani. Bangsa Batak khususnya di kisaran tanah suci leluhur yang ’splendid isolation’ terpelihara kultur+adat istiadat+agama Mulajadi’ dan memang survive menjadi bangsa yang paling unggul dalam menjaga kesuciannya. Bangsa Batak yang berada dipesisir membentuk kerajaan-kerajaan yang menjadi proteksi kesucian tanah leluhur tanpa pernah tersentuh oleh pengaruh luar. Hubungan luar dengan tanah suci leluhur hanya dilakukan oleh masyarakat Bangsa Batak pesisir dengan masyarakat Bangsa Batak leluhur.

    Perjalan waktu singkat mencatat sejarah bahwa Bangsa Batak leluhur tidak dapat lagi dipertahankan kesuciannya oleh Bangsa Batak pesisir karena gencarnya intervensi luar melalui perdagangan bahan-bahan logam (oricalcum, tin, gold) dan kemenyan – kayu wewangian – rempah2. maka masuklah Cola ke pesisir Barus, Padang Lawas. Masuk para petualang cina, masuk pula portugis, kemudian masuk Belanda, yang semuanya berorientasi perdagangan. Pada masa VOC, tanah leluhur masih ’splendid isolation’ tetapi faham muslim dengan mahjab hambali mulai memaksakan ajaran dengan pedang yang dimulai membinasakan daerah minang. Expansi berlangsung ke tanah leluhur Bansa Batak yang mengislamkan benteng Batak di selatan maka sampailah kepada pemusnahan Bangsa Batak leluhur oleh Paderi yang dilakukan oleh benteng batak sendiri dari daerah selatan.

    Oleh karena perang saudara ini, maka missionaris mendapat ‘blessing in disguise’ dan jadilah Nomensen menjadi apostel di tanah leluhur Bangsa Batak dan dan splendid isolation tertembus dalam ketidak berdayaan. Kultur runtuh, adat istiadat porakporanda, agama Mulajadi punah, segala sumber ilmu pengetahuan Bangsa Batak dikuras habis menjadi rantai yang hilang antara generasi sebelum perang saudara dengan generasi orang moderen Bangsa Batak di jaman hatoban sekarang.

    Pendidikan jaman dahulu sudah sedemikian canggihnya sehingga puluhan ribu judul transkrip ada beredar di masyarakat Bangsa Batak pada masa itu walaupun pengenyam pendidikan itu terbatas kepada yang disebut ‘datu’. Datu dalam konteks ‘pangihutan’ sama fungsinya dengan para nabi di jaman Abraham, Ishak, Yakub, Daud, Sulaiman, yaitu orang pintar sebagai penghubung dengan pencipta Mulajadi Nabolon. Kalau tak percaya baca saja dulu riwayat mereka.

    Puluhan ribu transkrip dibumihangus dimasa Paderi. Ribuan transkrip dikuras Van der Tuuk dan orang2 bule lainnya seperti Moligliani, dll. Ribuan lagi diambil oleh para missionaris. Masuk Nomensen bahkan dengan sukarela masyarakat Bangsa Batak membakar yang namanya lak-lak. Mengapa transkrip ini dikuras habis oleh bangsa asing tak lain karena sebagai sumber segala ilmu yi: kedokteran, arsitektur, perbintangan, pertanian, psychology, hukum, sastra, supranatural, dan banyak ilmu lainnya. Kemerdekaan membuat bangsa ini terlupa akan keberadaannya dahulu dan generasi selanjutnya terpaksa membangun budayanya dari nol lagi dibawah pengawasan yang sebetulnya jauh dibawah derajat budayanya terdahulu.

    Norma-norma yang mengungkungnya menjadi katak dibawah tempurung adalah agama, negaranya, pergaulan budaya luarnya dan terjadilah diskriminasi administrasi negara padahal masyarakat Bangsa Batak adalah penduduk negara yang paling asli karena bisa dirunut bibit-bebet-bobotnya sampai 20 generasi kebelakang, suku mana yang bisa begini? tak ada itu. Urutan generasi ini bahkan sedemikian suci-murninya sehingga tarombo bangsa jahudi sanapun menjadi begitu kotornya untuk standard bibit-bebet-bobot. Anda tak percaya? baca saja buku sucimu.

    Dr.Fritz Bode si datu Jerman mencipta Bodrex dengan segala variannya adalah dari buku pintar Batak tersebut. Maka Carilah identitasmu itu. Pembangunan tugu adalah menunjuk identitas secara kelompok dan itu baik karena coba bayangkan untuk merangkum raja-raja dari berbagai klan marga tentu perlu kerja juru selamat yang diutus oleh Mulajadi Nabolon. Kemiskinan adalah problema semua etnis (marga), (batak itu adalah Bangsa). Kerja TB Silalahi dan Luhut Panjaitan adalah mencoba menjembatani problema Bangsa Batak yang terputus dari keilmuannya terdahulu.

    Apabila semua etnis Batak bisa menunjukkan identitas yang positip untuk membangun etnisnya ya mengapa tidak…. termasuk membangun tugu, tapi jangan jatuhkan tuduhan pembangunan tugu menjadi beban satu-satu marga untuk menyelesaikan problema bangsa, ya kita sama-samalah memikirkannya. Pertanyaannya, apakah para raja-raja ini mambu dirangkum untuk menunjukkan identitas Bangsa Batak yang sudah hilang itu? Eagerly waiting for an answer, come on men, let’s go do it now. MARIDUP HUTAURUK

  2. Farida Simanjuntak

    Terkadang orang hanya mau saling pamer gengsi dengan membuat makam yang luar biasa mewah dan mahal. Padahal kalau dipikir-pikir, seiring berjalannya waktu semua itu akan pudar. Walau bagi sebagian orang itu sebagai lambang penghormatannya bagi orang tua atau leluhur yang sudah meninggal. Tapi apakah, mereka yang sudah meninggal masih bisa menikmatinya ?
    Hal yang sudah dibuat oleh Bapak Luhut Panjaitan dan Bapak TB Silalahi tidak akan pernah habis. Malah akan semakin melahirkan manusia-manusia yang handal dan sangat membantu bagi keluarga kurang mampu tapi anaknya memiliki potensi dan cerdas.
    Semoga akan semakin banyak orang-orang yang memiliki kelebihan secara materi tergerak hatinya untuk membangun dan membantu halak hita bangso batak di tano hatubuan an.
    Mungkin, sudah saatnya segala gengsi dihilangkan….

  3. qnewt

    inspiratif.

  4. alna65

    kita realistis saja lae, bukan bukan orang BATAK saja yang mempunyai kebiasaan begitu? bagaimana dengan makam2 raja di Jawa, istri presiden, presiden Marcos, Soekarno, mausoleum Mao Zedong di Cina, Piramida firaun di Mesir, Taj mahal di India dan lainnya.

    Itu semua makam2, Jadi tidak usahlah masalah makam diperdebatkan karena belum ada makam2 orang Batak masuk Guiness Book of Record atau menjadi tujuh keajiban dunnia.

    Mungkin yang menjadi concern kita adalah pemerataan kesempatan pendidikan dan kesejahteraan buat orang Batak di Tano Batak, sehingga tidak kelihatan jurang dengan perantau2 yang berhasil diluat nadao termasuk orang Batak diluar negeri.

    Tentu ada jalannya..mungkin lewat beasiswa, yayasan pendidikan, dll. termasuk yang didirikan oleh bapak Silalahi dan Panjaitan, dan menurut info yang saya baca selama ini, itu bukan dari dana pribadi saja..termasuk program pemerintah lho!

    Sebaiknya website ini dilengkapi dengan bidang- bidang kehidupan yang lain, misalnya tentang bisnis atau peluang bisnis serta lowongan- lowongan kerja di daerah batak.Thx

    Masa anak-anak dan remaja (sampai lulus SMA) yang saya jalani di Humbang kayaknya tidak merasakan adanya kaitan makam tersebut dengan rumah reot yang disebutkan.

    Makam tersebut mungkin ada nilai positifnya. Setahu saya kalau di Humbang, makam secara umum masih memakai kuburan biasa (langsung ke tanah).

    Mertua saya adalah orang Samosir (Lumban suhi-suhi) dan saya baru pernah satu kali ke pulau samosir dan memang saya melihat bahwa hampir semua keluarga di sana memiliki makam yang bertingkat dan permanen.

    Menurut pemikiran saya bahwa hal tersebut punya latar belakang yang berbeda. Samosir, memang lebih baik memakai makam bertingkat dan permanen tersebut jika kita melihat luas lahan yang tersedia di sana. Bukankah makam tersebut dipakai banyak orang (kalau tidak bisa disebut puluhan). Yang aku dengar, lubang terbawah adalah utk tempat pembusukan mayat dan jika sudah penuh namun ada kerabat yang meninggal (tentunya masih satu keluarga) maka lubang terbawah yang diisi oleh mayat yang sudah tinggal tulang belulang akan dipindah ke lubang di atasnya disatukan dengan tulang belulang yang sudah lebih dahulu ada di sana, demikian seterusnya sampai makam tersebut penuh. Jadi, saya kira ini adalah pemikiran efisiensi lahan yang mungkin telah dipikirkan nenek moyang khususnya daerah Samosir yang boleh dibilang bahwa lahan tanah pertaniannya sangat terbatas. Coba bayangkan, jika makamnya bukan demikian, maka mungkin seperempat lahan di Samosir sudah menjadi kuburan.

    Dan berbeda dengan Humbang, yang boleh dikatakan bahwa lahannya jauh lebih luas dari pulau Samosir maka bentuk makam yang lebih tepat saat ini adalah dengan system horinzontal (satu lubang satu mayat). Walaupun mungkin beberapa telah ada makam bentuk bertingkat dan permanen. Dan barangkali untuk waktu mendatang, makam bertingkat tersebut akan lebih tepat mengingat pertumbuhan penduduk dan lahan yang tetap.

    Kembali ke makam dan rumah reot… Saya kira kita juga harus mengakui bahwa kemiskinan yang terjadi di Bona pasogit (dalam hal ini saya hanya bisa katakan untuk Humbang, karena saya lahir dan besar disana) juga disumbang oleh pola pikir yang ada di bona pasogit. Saya juga pernah punya pengalaman pribadi di mana ada anggapan masyarakat bahwa tanahnya terlalu tandus untuk bercocok tanam sebagai alasan untuk kemalasan bekerja. Selama 3 tahun masa SMA, saya berusaha menggerakkan adik-adik, dan Tulang (yang seumuran denganku) dan yang akhirnya didukung penuh oleh ortuku untuk ‘mangarimba’ (bahasa indonesianya apa ya) sekitar 1 hektar lahan ‘tarulang’ yang dipenuhi ‘aramonting’ ,’arsam’, dan ‘hau silom’ untuk kemudian ditanami dengan kopi, cabe, dan sayur. Pekerjaan tersebut bukan dengan traktor tetapi benar-benar dengan ‘cangkul’.

    Untuk tahun pertama memang sangat sedikit hasil bahkan tidak jarang banyak tanaman kopi, cabe atau sayur yang ‘kariting’. Pupuk pada saat itu cukup mahal disamping modal memang tidak ada, maka kami ‘magarambas’ semak belukar untuk dijadikan pupuk dan ditambah dengan ‘taru-taru’ bercampur tahi babi yang dibawa dari perkampungan. Akhirnya…lahan tersebut menjadi subur dan saya dengar akhir-akhir ini sudah banyak teman kampung yang mengelola lahan ‘tarulang’nya dan bahkan saat ini lahan tersebut pun sudah dapat dipakai untuk menanam tomat. Bukan mengatakan bahwa saya termasuk pelopornya, tapi yang saya mau bilang adalah bahwa masih banyak pola pikir yang menghambat di kampungku sana, cukup banyak petani yang berdiskusi tentang tata cara kelola negara, perang nuklir, kursi menteri, dll, dll.

    Dan jangan kaget, sebenarnya saat ini pun sangat banyak lahan kosong yang dibiarkan terlantar di bona pasogit sana (dalam hal ini saya hanya berani bicara Humbang). Adakah yang berminat untuk mengubah pola pikir pola pikir yang lain yang mungkin menghambat kemajuan tersebut.

    Eh…rumah reot..lupa lagi.
    Percayalah…Anda bantu pun pemilik rumah reot tersebut untuk membangun rumahnya menjadi gedung permanen, kemiskinan tidak akan hilang dari Bona Pasogit selama kemalasan masih ada dan pola pikir belum memungkinkan untuk maju.

    Kita boleh dengan sangat bangga sebagai orang Batak, namun kita juga harus tetap mau belajar kepada orang lain. Janganlah seperti orang bilang “Namalo maol mangajari, Naoto maol siajaran”. Orangnya pintar tapi tak mau membagi ilmunya, orang bodoh tetapi tidak mau untuk belajar.

    Oh ya satu lagi, saking susahnya mengubah pola pikir ini. Kalau tidak salah, saya pernah dengar bahwa pak TB pernah menyarankan agar rumah-rumah yang ada di tepian danau di pulau Samosir agar diubah posisinya menjadi menghadap pantai (saya sendiri sewaktu ke pulau Samosir memang melihat banyak rumah yang membelakangi pantai danau toba). Mungkin pak TB pasti ada alasan untuk mengusulkan tersebut. Kenyataannya, sudah berapa banyak yang rumah yang menghadap pantai?

    Jadi, usul saya adalah mungkin rekan-rekan bisa membantu bagaimana caranya mengubah pola pikir (pola pikir pola pikir yang tidak membuat kemajuan) para ‘tondong’ kita yang masih tinggal di Bona Pasogit (ah..yang tidak tinggal di Bona Pasogit pun mungkin banyak juga) dengan cara tidak menggurui mereka. Bantuan finansial bukan satu-satunya solusi walaupun bantuan finansial memang tetap dibutuhkan.

    Barangkali sudah saatnya para jurnalis memberitakan orang-orang di Bona Pasogit (bukan perantau, karena pemberitaan untuk perantau sudah banyak kayaknya) yang punya karya mendobrak, memelopori, kemajuan di daerahnya masing-masing. Mungkin sudah saatnya pemerintah meng-apresiasi mereka dengan penghargaan setingkat ‘kalpataru’ sehingga makin banyak orang lain (di bona pasogit) yang terinspirasi menjadi pionir-pionir di daerahnya masing-masing.

    Kayak Lae Jarar yang punya blog ini pun mestinya sudah harus diapresiasi untuk kategori ‘Blogger yang berdomisili di Bona pasogit’. Karena apa, Lae ini termasuk orang yang berkarya dan pionir dalam bidangnya di Bona Pasogit melalui media internet dalam bentuk blog.

    Hatai hata tambaan dan mohon maaf jika tidak mewakili pengalaman para Netters yang lahir dan sempat menghabiskan masa remaja di Bona Pasogit. Komentar tersebut hanya bersifat pemikiran dan pengalaman pribadi saja.

    Monumen, makam, tugu—-artinya—sebagai pengingat, penanda …. perjalanan sebuah peradaban sebuah bangsa. Dan itu akan bisa menjadi cirri khas dan menjadi jati diri sebuah bangsa.

    Bangsa Yunani, Mesir, dan Romawi Kuno terkenal peradabannya karena bentuk Arsitektural Kotanya, yang MONUMENTAL. Baik Makam dan gedung pemerintahannya. Suku Aztex dan bangsa Maya tekenal maju peradabannya coz ditemukan sisa bangunan yang monumental dan bersejarah yang menerangkan bahwa mereka sudah sangat maju pada zamannya.

    Orang Amrik sana membangun makam/monument –Ground Zero—untuk mengenang peristiwa 11 sept 2001 .

    Pengaruh Budda terhadap perjalanan panjang bangsa Indonesia dapat kita baca dari sebuah Monumen yang terletak di Magelang Jawa Tengah…..Tidak terbayangkan apa bila sebuah bangsa tidak mempunyai pertanda yang menandakan bangsa itu sebuah bangsa yang besar.

    Ibu kota Sriwijaya sangat sulit dilacak karena tidak ada pertanda yang memeperkuat keberadaan kota itu terletaak di sebelah mananya sungai Musi. Sedih bukannn!!!,,,,,.

    Kalo kita lebih jeli menilai pendirian sekolah TB SIlalahi maupun Pak Luhut ……selain memajukan orang batak, itu juga berfungsi sebagai Monumen secara tidak langsung kepada kedua sang maestro. Jadi berfungsi sebagai Tugu abstrak –sejarah kehidpuan beliau- , dalam artian bukan dari batu atau semen,,,, yang dikasih nama, tempat lahir dan hari meninggal…..

    Soekarno pernah membubuhi judul pidatonya dengan JAS MERAH (JANGAN SEKALI-KALI MELUPAKAN SEJARAH

    Soekarno berujar JAS MERAH, jangan sekali-kali kita melupakan sejarah. itu artinya:
    mengerti dan memahami sejarah (entah itu momen, monumen maupun tokoh) sebagai bagian dari jati diri bangsa dan jangan sekali-kali ‘mengencingi’ dan ‘menodai’ sejarah, sebab bisa jadi sejarah akan balik ‘mengencingi’ dan ‘menodai’ kita.

    JADI PENDIRIAN MAKAM ATAU MONUMEN UNTUK LELUHUR PENTING UNTUK MENUNNJUKKAN BANGSA BATAK SEBAGAI BANGSA YANG BESAR, DAN BEPERADABAN MAJU

    aku lebih tertarik soal Batak dikaitkan dengan kapitalisme. Ada tugu, lambang adat dan budaya itu, kerap dipahami sebagai properti pamer diri dan harta. ini masih bisa didebat, betulkah demikian?
    persoalan ini memang kompleks. batak dengan keluhuran budayanya sesungguhnya sangat rapuh. pilihan tb silalahi dan luhut panjaitan membangun sekolah, bisa jadi dalam rangka aktualisasi ‘arogansi’ juga, dengan cara elegan.
    sama dengan perantau batak yang jika pulang kampung patengtengtengan bawa mobil padahal disewa dari kota. Atau beli perhiasan sementara, lalu dijual lagi setelah pulang. atau coba renungkan pertanyaan ini, “Nga boha anakmu na di ranto i. Nga berhasil? Nga mamora ibana?” Itu kan pertanyaan kapitalis.
    sementara tugu, sebesar apa pun itu, taklah sampai miliaran. jadi kupikir kultur membangun tugu, tidak boleh begitu saja digugat sebagai sikap ‘tak membangun’. ada nilai-nilai luhur di sana. nah persoalannya, apakah nilai-nilai itu masih bisa dipahami secara murni?
    Itu aja dulu, ada yang mau membahas lebih lanjut?

    Sebenarnya maksud nya Pak Holben Sinaga ini cukup luas. Makam hanya singgungan kecil, tapi kenapa ribut dengan makam saja ? Atau karena judul artikel ini kah ? Jangan2 judul artikel itu kerjaan Pak Jarar yang memang ahli membuat orang panas dingin )

    Horas Pak Holben
    Saya mengerti maksud bapak secara keseluruhan.
    Tragis memang. Halak kita terlalu banyak yang sipanggaron. Semoga perubahan itu semakin cepat terjadi di Bonapasogit. Tenang saja, ada wartawan pemberani yang tinggal di Balige….. ) Itu sangat baik. Karena tulisan bisa mempengaruhi pikiran seseorang. Semakin baik atau buruk, itu tergantung dari tulisan yang dibacanya. Horas

    Aku membuka URL ini berdasarkan rekomendasi dari Pak Barry (www.jawaban.blogspot.com), salah satu blog yang sering aku kunjungi. Kebetulan aku sudah membaca semua archive di blog ini. Sejak saat itu setiap hari aku mengunjungi blog ini. Aku suka artikel2-nya, baik yang ditulis oleh Pak Jarar maupun oleh yg lainnya. Dialog agamanya universal, perlu untuk dibaca oleh siapa saja, agar kita terus belajar untuk menghargai & menerima setiap perbedaan. Comment2-nya juga tak kalah menarik.

    Intinya, membaca blog ini memberi aku khasanah baru ttg Suku Batak, banyak hal yang aku pelajari disini, mengingat aku bukan berasal dari Suku Batak, aku 100% Suku Jawa -bukan pejabat- yg sekarang menuntut ilmu & bekerja di Tangerang-Banten. Keseharianku banyak dikelilingi orang batak, teman baikku orang batak -dari Pematangsiantar-, teman kuliahku pun banyak yang orang Batak. Dengan membaca blog ini membantuku memahami & menerima perbedaan karakteristik di antara aku & teman2-ku itu. Meskipun blog ini batak banget, namun aku menganggap blog ini layak juga dibaca sama yang bukan batak, betul ga ya?. Ga ada eksklusifisme disini.

    Barusan aku baca artikel yang satu ini. Trus rasanya agak gimannnaaa gitu pas baca yang ini –> “Dilema!!!
    Generasi Muda Batak bangunlah! Putra daerah Batak dengan tingkat inteligency di atas rata-rata suku lain. Berdasarkan statistic, sarjana putra daerah Batak menempati ranking pertama (tulisan di harian Kompas tahun 2000-an, mohon minta literature ke Kompas).”

    Kemudian hati kecilku berkata, “Hehehehe, udah ga boleh ngerasa gimana-gimana. Ga ada salahnya khan nulis gitu, itu khan kutipan dari Kompas. Orang bebas nulis apa, asal ga mengandung SARA. Jadi, terima setiap perbedaan dengan hati & pikiran terbuka, tambahi dengan senyum. Indah khan jadinya = ). Semua juga senang, ga ada yang berselisih, ga ada yang berantem. Senyum terrrruuusss…. = ). Ga ada salahnya juga mengakui kelebihan suku lain, malah harus kita jadikan motivasi diri untuk maju”. Contohnya, teman baikku, yang dari Pematangsiantar itu, pinternya minta ampun. Dan aku banyak belajar & sharing dgn dia.

    Kita semua khan sama-sama orang Indonesia, jadi kuanggap kita semua teman. Dan teman ga boleh berantem, ya khan = )

    Salam kenal untuk semuanya….. = )

    JARAR SIAHAAN: salam kembali, nilam. benar katamu, tidak ada eksklusivisme di blogku ini. meskipun aku orang batak, meskipun aku muslim, tapi blog ini “tidak memihak” batak maupun islam. blogku cuma memihak pada kebaikan — termasuk kebaikan dari batak, suku bali, jawa, dll, serta kebaikan dari islam, kristen, buddha, hindu, dll. oh ya, lae barry adalah bloger yang baik, dia termasuk pembaca blog ini yang pertama, sejak akhir maret 2007.

    Horasssssssssss…..beberapa hari yang lalu blog ini seperti mati suri,sepi dan mencekam.Tatkala saudara Sinaga mulai menggoreskan mata penanya geliatnya terasa lagi, walaupun belum semuanya pengkoment kembali.Untuk saya pribadi dua sosok jendral diatas adalah manusia yang benar benar cinta akan bonapasogitnya,mereka dengan tulus melakukan seperti kata pepatah Jangan kasih ikan,tetapi berikanlah pancing.Suatu kala yg berlalu sepasang suami istri melakukan perjalanan menuju univesitas Harvard yg kesohor itu,pagi yg masih dingin menggigil itu,mereka ingin bertemu dengan rektor universitas tersebut,tetapi karena mereka tidak membuat suatu appointmen terlebih dahulu,mereka harus rela menunggu saat kapan ada waktu luang dari sang rektor.Tibalah saatnya mereka bertemu dengan sang rektor,setelah mereka duduk kemudian sang rektor menanyakan akan tujuan mereka kesana,sepasang suami istri ini mengungkapkan keinginan mereka,yaitu ingin menyumbangkan sejumlah uang,tetapi dengan syarat harus membuatkan monumen anak mereka yg mati dan merupakan alumni universitas tersebut.Sang rektor terperanjat dan menjawab harvard adalah campus bukan tempat makam,bagaimana kalau semua alumni yg meninggal melakukan hal demikian,dimana lagi tempat belajar ujaarnya.Dengan hati gundah gulana dan rasa kecewa karena permintaan mereka tidak diterima,suami istri ini pulang ke California dengan uangnya yg begitu besar jumlahnya dan merekapun mendirikan sebuah universitas Barkley yang juga kesohor itu.Bagiku ini adalah suatu monumen yg hidup dan tak akan pernah punah sepanjang masa.Songon i majo,bah…

    Membangun Tugu menurut ku tidak salah, yang salah sering karena untuk membangun Tugu itu, keluarga yang kurang mampu juga ikut “memaksakan diri” sampai harus berhutang. Tugu biasanya dibangun na saompu(yang satu garis keturunan), berarti baik dia mampu(kaya) atau miskin harus ikut ambil bagian dalam pembangunan itu. Dan karna orang Batak itu harga dirinya sangat tinggi, maka marutang pe jadi ma asal ma tarida goar i(Berhutang pun jadilah asal namanya ikut disebutkan). Mungkin hal ini juga di picu karena keluarga yang kaya yang dari kota(perantauan) biasanya suka” Pamer”. Dan biasanya para perantau memang lebih gampang datang dan mengumpulkan duitnya untuk membangun tugu dari pada untuk membangun jalan atau fasilitas umum lain yang lebih berguna bagi masyarakat.

    Pak TB Silalahi dan Pak Luhut Panjaitan membangun sekolah, mungkin seperti sopociis katakan bisa jadi dalam rangka aktualisasi ‘arogansi’, dengan cara elegan. tapi setidaknya hal itu masih berguna bagi banyak orang. Juga kita tahu pendidikan adalah salah satu cara untuk memberantas kemiskinan. Berarti usaha Pak TB Silalahi dan Pak Luhut Panjaitan dalam mendirikan sekolah bisa membantu memajukan daerah Batak.
    tapi ada satu hal yang aku herankan, yang masuk di PI-Del (sekolah yang Pak Luhut dirikan) malah lebih banyak yang asal sekolahnya dari Medan dibandingkan dari daerah Tobasa,Samosir, Taput, Humbahas atau kabuten “Toba” lainnya. Mungkin karena letaknya yang di pelosok, jadi banyak “halak hita” yang merasa ngapain sekolah di kampung-kampung. Atau ini juga mungkin karena pengaruh pemikiran bahwa kalo sudah di kota sekolah baru maju ga tahu juga. Jadi sepertinya kesempatan yang diberikan Pak Luhut Panjaitan tidak terlalu di gunakan oleh Putra Batak yang ada di daerah sekitar sekolah itu didirikan.
    Tapi yang pasti saya pribadi berterima kasih pada Pak Luhut karena saya lulusan dari Del. Dan seperti Uda Holben katakan, mungkin jika Pak Luhut tidak mendirikan sekolah itu saya bekerja hanya sebagai buruh kasar, karean secara finansial keluarga ku memang tidak sanggup untuk membiayaiku kuliah.

    Konsep Marsipature Huta Nabe yang dicanangkan Gubernur terdahulu (alm) hanya berada di tataran konsep saja. Aplikasinya hampir nihil sama sekali, meski masih ada perantau yang sedikit peduli dengan hutanya.

    Sangat banyak orang batak yang sukses di perantauan, namun lupa dan tidak melirik ke belakang.

    Pembangunan pabrik mobil Ford terbesar di Asia yang akan segera di realisasikan di sumut sungguh menyindir saya pribadi. kenapa orang luar yang lebih perduli dibanding kita sendiri.

    Terimkasih pak panjaitan dan pak silalahi yang bisa menjadi inspirator bagi rekan-rekan perantau untuk perduli dengan kampung halaman.

    Sebenarnya kita harus bangga dengan kampung kita sendiri. data statistik menunjukkan bahwa tingkat pendidikan Sarjana (S1) tertinggi di Indonesia berada di Kabupaten Tapanuli utara ( Sebelum pemekaran). yang mungkin sekarang telah sukses di bidang kerjanya masing2. namun kenapa masih tetap miskin.. TANYA KENAPA???

    anganku kedepan semoga segera menjadi kenyataan:
    – Toba -> Pusat Tujuan wisata Indonesia
    – Bank Batak
    – Tapanuli Air
    – Sibolga : Pelabuhan laut internasional
    – dll

    Semoga tidak hanya sekedar mimpi.

    Soal pembangunan tugu makam yang mungkin menelan biaya ratusan juta, sebenarnya tidaklah masalah semasih itu bukan untuk menunjukkan kesombongan diri.

    Soal masih adanya saudara kita (suku Batak) dibawah garis kemiskinan, itu sudah pernah “diteropong” sekitar tahun 80-an. Bahkan dibuat jadi tulisan berseri oleh Harian Umum Suara Pembaruan (Sinar Harapan) dengan judul (kalo gak salah ingat): “Tapanuli Peta Kemiskinan”.

    Siapapun pasti miris melihat kenyataan ini mengingat orang Batak terkenal dengan kesuksesan dan kesuksesannya. Saya hanya mau mengamini tulisan artikel di atas, bahwa kalau orang Batak sudah sukses di rantau jarang yang punya perhatian untuk lebih meningkatkan taraf hidup saudaranya di kampung sana.

    Saya pernah begitu sedihnya melihat saudaraku Batak, seoran pengacara terkenal, dengan arogannya membelikan baju seharga puluhan juta rupiah untuk seorang penyanyi wanita – kalo tidak salah ingat, waktu itu dalam rangka lelang pakaian almarhum Lady Di. Kontan saya bergumam saat itu: “Kok sombong dan norak kali kawan ini. Apakah kalau salah seorang saudaranya di kampung sana minta puluhan juta ke dia untuk modal usaha, apa dia mau memberikan?” Hmmm…. [moga-moga dalam diri “kawan” si pengacara itu ada kesetaraan “kasih” – pemerataan dalam menolong orang lain]. Betul kata seorang komentator di atas, masih banyak halak hita yang SIPANGGARON, sehigga terkesan “Tukul” banget alias katrok…

    @Maridup Hutauruk
    terimakasih atas ulasannya yang panjaggg sekali. Saya seperti membaca story board perjalanan sejarah batak. Mana yang lebih penting dan lebih berguna…. makam (benda mati ) atau memperbaiki tingkat kecerdasan bangsa batak ? yang pasti semua pembaca pasti mendahulukan sekolah anak anaknya dan bukan makam !

    @Farida Simanjuntak
    Terimakasih Ito. Memang benar..sudah saatnya embel embel hasangapon dan panggaron di kurangi atau dikikis habis. Slogan sekarang ini kita ganti dengan “Benahi Pendidikan Generasi Muda Batak”.

    @Alna 65
    Makasih Ito,
    Mao Zedong atau Gandhi adalah pahlawan di setiap negaranya. Dan dihormati kepala negara di seluruh dunia. Memang budaya Batak memberikan penghormatan kepada leluhur terlalu berlebihan. “Time consuming dan Money consuming”. Sudah saatnya para tokoh agama, budayawan, politisi dan tokoh masyarakat batak memberikan konstribusi dalam memperbaiki cara berpikir yang pragmatis dan ekonomis sehingga secara sporadis dapat terlaksana secara systematis.

    Kita masih berputar putar masalah adat yang nota bene bisa dibuat “in a simple way” tapi karena karakter batak yang frontal dan vokal sehingga setiap acara berlomba lomba tampil meskipun kadang kadang yang di ributkan tidak ada value dan only time consuming.

    @Ridwan Simanullang
    Terima kasih dengan cerita pengalaman di huta.
    Lae sudah menjadi salah satu pelopor. Jika ada satu orang disetiap kampung di tanah Batak yang seperti lae ridwan, maka tidak akan ada lagi rumah reot dan yang hidup dibawah garis kemiskinan. Perantau dengan pola pikir yang sudah lebih maju harus bergandengan tangan membenahi dan merubah pola pikir mereka. Pamer dan arogansi sudah tidak zamannya. Horas lae.

    @Architect_Singapore
    Ground Zero – adalah monument buat mengenang para korban dari serangan teroris. Global effect !. setiap negara memiliki monumen sebagai penghormatan kepada orang2 besar yang memberikan konstribusi kepada warganya ataupun kepada dunia. Kita Batak – budaya nya adalah menghormati leluhur dengan cara yang pongah dan berlebihan. Saya tidak menentang buat makam tapi makam yang dibangun dengan logic dari segi biaya dan time consuming.

    Ada firman Tuhan saya kutip, yg mengatakan “orang mati tidak akan tau dimana dia akan dikuburkan” Man soul is belong to God. Lebih berdosa tidak mengurus orang yang hidup dalam kemiskinan dari pada mengurus orang yang sudah tinggal tulang belulang. Kalau dari segi efisiensi tempat dan lahan memang itu sangat benar tapi tidak benar efisien dalam hal money dan time consuming dalam mendirikan tugu tersebut karena lebih berguna dan bermanfaat apabila money dan time consuming di gunakan untuk memperbaiki kehidupan masyarakat disekitarnya.

    @Sopociis
    Maaf, statement anda dibawah ini sangat tidak benar. Arogansi biasanya dikonotasikan negative attitude !. Anda salah besar kalau mengatakan mereka meng aktualisasikan arogansinya dengan arogan. You have picked up the wrong words!

    Sopociis:
    pilihan tb silalahi dan luhut panjaitan membangun sekolah, bisa jadi dalam rangka aktualisasi ‘arogansi’ juga, dengan cara elegan.

    Horas Lae Jarar, Salut buat lae bah.Kalau aku melihat sudah saatnya lae mencetak blog ini dalam bentuk Daily Newspaper-jadi setiap orang bisa mendapatkan informasinya- bukan hanya sekelompok orang yang beruntung bisa acces ke blog ini. Karena berita-berita yang lae turunkan di blog ini sangat tepat sasaran dan membangun. Kapan Lae, ditunggu beritanya. Kalau lae perlu pemred,redaktur, editor dan sebagainya – pasti banyak antri pelamar baik dari daerah,maupun yang ada di luar negeri. Jadi paling tidak yang ada di perantauan bisa pulang ke bona pasogit untuk sama-sama bahu membahu membangun tanah batak.

    Inilah moment yang tepat untuk semua para perantau yang sudah mapan di perantauan bisa balik ke kampung masing-masing untuk mewujudkan semua master plan yang sangat bagus -seperti yang banyak di utarakan para teman-teman di blog ini. Sekiranya semua ide ini di plenokan dan di ikuti dengan implementasinya – aku yakin Tanah Batak akan berubah. Jadi Lae Jarar – sebagai “mahluk aneh” yang ber basis di bona pasogit bisa sebagai inspirator untuk semua ini, gimana lae – masuk akal nya ini. (???)

    JARAR SIAHAAN: ) ide lae tentu bagus. sangat bagus malah. tapi aku akan memilih tetap menulis via blog. dan aku belum kepikiran untuk “join” dengan pihak lain. sesuai latar belakang mengapa aku bikin blog setelah mengundurkan diri sebagai wartawan suratkabar, aku ngeblog supaya bisa menulis dengan merdeka. lae pasti paham, bila blog ini “dikonversi” bentuknya menjadi media cetak — yang membutuhkan redaktur, reporter, pemodal, bidang iklan, pemasaran, dll — maka aku tidak akan bisa lagi menulis sesuka-hatiku. jadi untuk saat ini kesimpulanku adalah, aku tidak ingin blog ini dikerjakan pihak lain selain aku sendiri. karena aku tidak ingin melepaskan lagi kemerdekaan yang sudah kurasakan saat ini. meskipun begitu, tetap kuucapkan banyak terima kasih atas perhatian dan ide lae untuk blogku. salam hangat.

    Penolong dan yang ditolong harus mempunyai niat mau menolong dan mau ditolong. Suatu ketika pada tahun 1986, di suatu desa di Humbang sana, entah atas inisiatif siapa, diberikanlah bantuan tenaga ahli penyuluh pertanian. Tetapi apa yang terjadi dan apa respon masyarakat? Kira-kira beginilah jawaban masyarakat sekitar ‘Ai dia ma pabege-bege on angka hata ni i, pintor sadia godang ma sira digugut i, naso diboto i do hita on nungga sian sihadakdanakon mangula dihutanta on’.

    Pada saat itu memang saya pun mengiyakan para pendapat orang tua tersebut karena saya memang dididik oleh lingkungan dengan pola pikir yang seperti hal tersebut.

    Semakin banyak melihat dan mendengar kampung orang, baik melihat langsung maupun melalui berita maka makin lama makin ‘kurimang-rimangi’ ternyata kampungku sana masih banyak pola pikir yang menghambat kemajuan.

    Jika memang para ‘natua-tua’ tersebut sudah punya pengalaman banyak, kenapa pola bertani dan bercocok tanam begitu-begitu saja. Kenapa tidak ada yang namanya ‘continuous improvement’ kenapa tidak ada kelompok petani yang berdiskusi tentang pertanian (tetapi tentang Peol otik eh..Politik..wow jangan tanya bisa satu hari satu malam.. dang marmukmus). Mereka mungkin lupa bahwa pengalaman panjang secara umur belum menjadi penentu. Bangsa (suku) lain selalu mau belajar dan belajar lagi untuk memperbaiki metode (misalkan pertanian) secara terus menerus. Kalau panen tahun ini mereka baru bisa sekian kaleng kopi per hektar, maka mereka akan tertantang dan berdiskusi untuk meningkatkan produktifitasnya menjadi sekian (lebih besar dari panen hari ini). Kampungku?, ‘amang oi tahe…dapot’ kopi ’saliter’ dan apalagi ’sakaleng’ sudahlah itu. sudah mantap itu ‘pasionan’.

    Terus keluar lagi kata ‘dang adong modal’. Apa iya? Terus kalau sudah dikasih modal sudah yakin berkembang? Apa iya kalau biaya membangun Tugu diberikan saja kepada masyarakat maka mereka akan maju?

    Saya pernah juga mencoba membantu saudara saya, dua orang anak muda yang lahir dan besar di bona pasogit, yang datang merantau ke jakarta dalam bentuk usaha 1 mobil angkot (karena memang mereka berminat dibidang tersebut dan sudah melakoninya dengan menyupiri angkot orang lain). Saya sudah menjelaskan panjang lebar, ‘uang pintor mabuk ho da lae, anggi, sabar mangula ulaon, boto lungun da anggia, laeku’, karena saya pun masih orang yang ‘mandasor’, aku coba bantu kalian daripada ‘manupiri’ angkot orang lain. Angkot ini bukan kuberikan menjadi milik kalian, tetapi kalau kalian ‘nunut’ menjalankannya, aku yakin 5 sampe 10 tahun lagi kalian sudah punya 1 angkot masing-masing dan modal angkot ini pun sudah kembali padaku (dan bahkan kutunjukkan simulasi perhitungannya).

    Sebulan, dua bulan, tiga bulan…masih kelihatan lancar. Makin lama makin tak jelas, mungkin dalam pikirannya, 5 tahun, 10 tahun? ‘leleng nai’, sudah mulai mabuk dia kan, sudah menjadi seperti kata orang ‘nungga lobi patokke-tokkehon sian angka tokke’ dan malah berpikiran curiga dengan menyebarkan berita-berita tak sedap kepada orang lain, katanya saya memanfaatkannya.

    Setelah 1 tahun 2 bulan, ah..sudahlah. Saya memutuskan jual sajalah angkot ini malah bikin pusing maksud hati mau membantu tapi malah dapat sebaliknya. Kutahankan belum mencicil rumah (masih mengontrak) agar tabunganku yang tidak seberapa ini bisa membeli angkot bekas untuk membantu saudara. Akhirnya kujuallah itu angkot, toh aku pun tak minat dan keahlian dibidang angkot-berangkot ini, mending kucicil rumahku saja. Karena kalau aku ada minat dan keahlian, kucarikan saja orang lain menjadi supirnya. Aku pun baru tahu, ternyata di dunia perangkotan Jakarta ‘nahumaliang’ untuk jadi super tembak pun orang berebut saking banyak tenaga kerjanya. Apalagi untuk menjadi supir batangan, wow…toke-toke angkot serasa tidak ada bandingnya sebagai
    orang yang punya lowongan kerja. Sesama supir yang sudah jadi supir batangan pun saling jelek menjelekkan di depan tokke itu agar tetap exist sebagai supir batangan.

    Itulah kenapa saya bilang penolong dan yang ditolong harus mempunyai niat mau menolong dan mau ditolong. Harus dua-duanya. Dan saya yakin dikampung kami sana pun (ah..di perantauan pun banyak juga) masih banyak pola pikir yang ‘tak mau ditolong’ (molo na olo disulangi…godang..godang hian). Ada orang yang berniat baik buat bona pasogit sana, kita bilang sipanggaron. Syukurlah masih ada ‘anak ni bangso’ itu yang bisa sipanggaron, daripada macam awak ini, apa yang mau dipanggarhon.

    Dan sekali lagi, saya kira tugu, makam dan kemiskinan tidak bisa langsung kita pertentangkan. Tugu tetap perlu, makam juga perlu, kemajuan sangat dibutuhkan. Tugu dan makam mungkin sangat dibela oleh orang-orang yang berorientasi akar budaya, seni, adat, dan yang sebidang dengannya. Harapan saya…Seandainya makin banyak ‘anak ni bangso i’ yang berminat dalam sipanggaronnya untuk membina atau memfasilitasi bentuk pembinaan terutama untuk bidang-bidang yang menjadi sumber-sumber utama penghasilan di bona pasogit sana, seperti pertanian, perikanan,dll. Lebih mantap lagi..kalau didukung oleh pemerintah lokal dengan menjadikannya sebagai program utama. Oh..Tuhan mauliate untukMu jadikanlah makin banyak sipanggaron yang mau membangun kampungku.

    Ah..tahe holan hata do sian iba, andigan ma iba boi gabe masuk tu level ni sipanggaron ate.
    Eh..tahe.. ngomong-omong ada nggak dari para netters ini yang mau bersedia ku-’panggar’ untuk membiayai membangun Tugu setinggi Monas dikampungku sana. Aku akan menjadi pendukung berat Anda, tapi..ya harus dikampungku ya. Biar Ada dulu landmark-nya kampungku itu..masa hanya ‘tusam’ saja..itu pun sudah ditebangi buat indorayon.

    NB : Kau ‘panggar’ setinggi langit pun orang yang dompetnya hanya berisi surat kaleng, sepeserpun tak akan ada yang keluar he..he..he..

    Mohon maaf kalau ada isi dari komentar tersebut di atas secara sengaja atau tidak sengaja menyinggung perasaan para netters karena komentar tersebut adalah murni hanya pengalaman dan pendapat pribadi saja.

    Horas bapak H. Sinaga.

    Saya sependapat dengan pak Sinaga. Saya bisa digolongkan salah satu dari voice yang menyatakan hal tersebut sehingga sudah terlanjur dilabel “dang maradat”. Menurut saya, orang orang Batak yang merantau have the chance to be exposed to various thoughts, ideas dan opinions yang bisa shape their behaviors and way of thinking. Tidak sedikit orang Batak dirantau yang very open minded. Sementara orang Batak yang hanya exposed to Batak Culture akan mempertahankan culture tersebut dan memandang orang orang yang open minded sebagai “dang maradat”. Hasilnya ya, clash between the traditional and the modern Bataks.

    Kalau saya berkunjung ke Balige, saya merasa sebagai minority. Influence adat sangat kuat, including issues mengenai mangongkal holi, bikin tugu and all that. Sehingga mereka menganggap bahwa orang yang tidak sepemikiran dengan mereka, lebih baik tidak perlu balik balik lagi kekampung halaman. Padahal approach saya sudah saya susun sedemikian rupa supaya kedengarannya persuasive, eh malah disuruh jangan balik balik lagi ke Balige. Saya kalo berkunjung ke Balige memutuskan untuk diem aja. Soalnya susah merubah kebiasaan yang sudah turun temurun.

  22. Viky Sianipar

    Kebetulan temen2 saya banyak yang non-Batak, jadi saya sempet mempelajari sejarah budaya suku mereka juga (gak perlu saya sebutkan suku apa saja). Sejauh ini saya mendapati ilmu2 di budaya batak (musik, gorga, philosophy, fashion, perbintangan, pengobatan, pengairan, dll) gak kalah tinggi dibandingkan mereka. Bahkan lebih lengkap.

    Memang makam juga PERLU untuk mengenang leluhur. Tapi JANGAN berhenti disitu dong ah… ) BAGAIMANA DENGAN PELESTARIAN AJARAN ILMU2 LELUHUR YANG BRILIAN ITU??!!?

    @Lae Jarar…
    Puasanya pol gak nih… Met Lebaran ya.. Kesalahanmu sudah kumaaf kan kok… hahaha.. Gak puas aku waktu kita ketemu lae lagi puasa. Kau blum jadi ‘raja iblis’ sebelum kita kita mabuk tuak bareng… ) HORAS!

    JARAR SIAHAAN: D puasaku bolong beberapa hari. biasalah, gara-gara rokok pulak itu. dasar tak tahu malu! D

    aku juga belum puas waktu kita ketemu di rumahku hari itu. soalnya kualitas pembicaraan kita baru sebatas kafir-mengkafirkan dan menyesatkan domba. padahal aku ingin kita sampai pada level rajanya kafir dan rajanya domba tersesat. D kapan-kapanlah kita lanjutkan lagi, sambil kita minum tuak, sampai kita benar-benar menjadi tersesat dan siap masuk neraka. hidup viky si nasrani tersesat! hidup jarar si muslim kafir!

    @Viky Sianipar
    Kalau ajaran ilmu-ilmu leluhur yang brilliant, disamping Sisingamaraja, ada raja Batak yang sakti. Raja ini memang kurang catatan sejarahnya, dan tidak begitu banyak di publish oleh para seniman.

    Namun secara tidak langsung, Viky adalah salah satu seniman yang sudah menuliskan sejarah raja tersebut. Setidaknya orang awam yang tahu raja ini, sudah dapat mengenangnya melalui musik yang lae released itu.

    Paltiraja adalah raja yang sakti yang pernah berperang dengan Sisingamangaraja, dikala Sisingamangaraja ingin mengekspansi kekuasaan sampai ke daratan Samosir.

    Mungkin Tulang Suhunan dan Lae SM Nainggolan, sudah lebih pintar dari saya untuk menceritakan lebih dalam kesaktian Paltiraja ini. Mudah-mudahan mereka bersedia )

    Terimakasih atas koment dan ulasan Lae Viky, salam

    Komentar sikit bah,

    Pembangunan Tugu yang ambisius di Tanah Batak dimulai pada tahun 1960-an. Orang batak toba berbondong-bondong memindahkan orang-orang meninggal dari kalangan mereka ke desa-desa nenek moyang dan melakukan banyak pesta meriah dan membangun monumen-monumen yang biayanya sampai ratusan sampai miliar rupiah. well, ada beberapa hal yang dapat kita lihat yaitu sebagai berikut:

    1. Status Kompetisi jelas merupakan satu faktor kemegahan tugu dan pesta-pesta yang disatukan dengan pembangunan tugu itu. Tugu yang dibangun oleh salah satu keluarga memancing kecemburuan keluarga yg lain, sehingga membuat mereka untuk dapat melakukan hal yg sama. Beberapa orang berpendapat bahwa hal itu untuk mengangkat martabat keluarga mereka. Dan hal itu merupakan jawaban atas pertanyaan Siapa kami, untuk mengenal kami sebagai suatu kelompok/keluarga.

    2. Tugu dibangun dan pesta dilakukan besar-besaran dengan alasan untuk menghormati orang tua/leluhur. Hal itu merupakan salah satu cara orang batak melakukan kewajiban ‘hormatilah ayah dan ibumu’ serta penghormatan universal kepada para leluhur/orang yang sudah meninggal.

    3. Pembangunan tugu merepresentasikan suatu kontak antara si Kaya dan si miskin, orang kota dan desa, muda dan tua dari suatu keluarga/kelompok. Ide pembangunan tugu atau pelaksanaan pesta mangokkal holi, meskipun kebanyakan dibiayai oleh perantau kota yg kaya, tapi ide ini sering berasal dari orang tua atau kerabat yg tinggal di kampung, karena faktor diatas tadi yaitu kompetisi.

    4. Orang Batak yang punya ide membangun dengan mendirikan sekolah atau Rumah sakit atau lainnya yg bermanfaat bagi masyarakat luas-dituding ingin meninggikan dirinya sendiri. Tetapi jika ia menyelenggarakan pembangunan tugu, ia dianggap meninggikan seluruh keluarga atau garis keturunan. Orang akan lebih respek kepada si pemberi dana?

    5. Pembangunan sebuah tugu merupakan konsolidasi dan untuk memperkuat identitas (jatidiri) agar tidak terkikis atau tenggelam. Tugu juga menjembatani masa lalu dan masa kini yang mana tentunya ada pengalaman sejarah keluarga dan kelompok. Berangkat dari kampung merantau, berhasil dan sukses, kembali ke desa untuk membangun Tugu untuk menunjukan identitas keluarga/kelompok.

    6. Salah kaprah, ada banyak orang yang menjadikan tugu leluhur/orangtua menjadi tempat persembahan-persembahan untuk mendapatkan berkah, memanjatkan doa bagi mereka yg tidak punya keturunan, menjauhkan dari penyakit, kemalangan, ingin berhasil usahanya, menambah sahala, dll. Gejala ini ada dan mempunyai imbas yang tidak baik tentunya.

    Seperti yang Lae Holben paparkan, jelas kalau diadakan program ‘MULAK’ ke Bona pasogit, seperti orang israel sehabis perang dunia kedua, bisa dibayangkan bagaimana perubahannya. Btw, Salut untuk kedua jenderal diatas. Horas!!.

    Botul ma i tahe ito (betul itu ito)
    Aku terkesan dan selalu ingat dengan pesan bapakku, “kalo bapak nanti meninggal, ga usah kalian pestakan lama-lama, kalo tak ada uang kalian, ga usah pake musik segala,kuburan bapak pun ga usah kalian bangun, yang penting kalian perhatikan mamak kalian yang masih hiduo itu” (molo matua au haduan, unang paleleng hu pestahon hamu, molo so adong hepeng muna, unang pola segala mar musik baen hamu, kuburanhu pe unang pola bangun hamu, na penting parrohahon hamu inong muna na mangolu i).
    Pinomparnya pulang dari pangarantoan, pestakan dan bangun kuburan sampe setinggi pencakar hariara (bukan pencakar langit).
    Habiskan uang sebanyak-banyaknya, untuk memestakan “batu atau tambak”
    sementara, habis itu mereka pulang ke tempat masing-masing dan meninggalkan saudara-saudara di kampung yang hidupnya tetap susah.
    Sebatas jagal pesta itulah sumbangsih mereka untuk saudara-saudara mereka di kampung, padahal mereka bisa melakukan lebih dari itu
    Bahkan waktu hidupnya orang tua nya pun, dia jarang pulang kampung, pas udah meninggalnya dia bikin kuburannya mewah (lebih mewah dari rumah tinggal), cuman demi apa?

    Memang membangun makam tidak salah, tetapi menjadi kurang efisien jika sebuah makam berdiri megah dekat dengan tempat tinggal yang kondisinya berbanding terbalik dengan kondisi makam

    Misal, saya pernah berkunjung ke sebuah desa (masih di TOBASA). Di sepanjang perjalanan menuju desa ini, terdapat sangat banyak makam atau tugu yang terbuat dari semen/bahan yang lebih mahal.
    Ada sebuah makam yang dibangun bertingkat, tetapi tepat di samping makam tersebut terdapat sebuah rumah yang menurut saya tidak lagi layak huni, karena saya lihat dari segi luas rumah tersebut pasti paling banyak hanya terdapat 1 kamar dan terbuat dari kayu yang sudah tampak usang. Karena demikianlah maka menurut saya pembangunan makam megah yang tepat berada di samping rumah tersebut menjadi kurang efisien. Kalo salah sih,, pasti ga!!!

    mmm,, kebetulan saya adalah mahasiswa Del, jadi saya ingin berkomentar sedikit mengenai kampus yang dibangun Bapak Luhut Panjaitan.
    Fasilitas yang didapat oleh mahasiswa di kampus ini sangat-sangat mewah. Menurut saya tidak sebanding dengan uang kuliah yang harus dibayarkan. Uang kuliah di sini mungkin masih lebih murah dengan uang kuliah di PTN yang ada di propinsi ini.Namun memang kursi yang tersedia juga sangat terbatas.

    Jadi mungkin maksud sang author (bapak Holben sinaga), kiranya kita lebih mendahulukan pembangunan fasilitas pendidikan daripada pembangunan makam. Kelak jika semua orang Batak sudah berpendidikan, pembangunan makam bisa dipikirkan.

  35. Sibarani

    Saya lebih suka melihat dari sisi prioritasnya. Apakah membangun tugu nenek moyang merupakan prioritas saat ini? Jawabannya kita pasti sama-sama setuju bahwa tugu bukanlah prioritas utama untuk masyarakat di Tano Batak saat ini, karena masih banyak prioritas-prioritas lain yang lebih mendesak dan langsung terkait dengan kesejahteraan rakyat di sana. Secara pribadi, saya juga tidak melihat manfaat besar dari pembangunan tugu-tugu marga.

    Tapi Tano Batak sudah terlanjur dikenal sebagai ‘tanah 1000 tugu’ dan nggak mungkin kan tugu-tugu tersebut diruntuhkan sebagaimana Taliban menghancurkan artefak Buddha di Afghanistan beberapa tahun lalu. So, mungkin tugu-tugu yang ada sekarang bisa ‘dijual’ sebagai daya tarik pariwisata? Ini bisa juga memberikan kerja tambahan sebagai guide bagi yang bermukim di sekitar tugu. Ketimbang cuma memandang-mandang tugu dari jendela rumah, kan lebih baik kalo tugu-tugu yang sudah ada tersebut dimanfaatkan untuk kemaslahatan rakyat banyak.

    Tabe …

    Parhorasan ma di hita sasudena,
    Terkesan dgn pendapat dari Panurat 22 yg menyatakan bahwa secara berseri pernah dibahas di harian Suara Pembaruan ( sekitar thn. 80 an ) : “Tapanuli Peta Kemiskinan”. Dan saya masih ingat komentarnya Solihin G. P ( Sesdalopbang – jabatan Pengendalian Operasi Pembangunan era Suharto ), dia menyatakan bahwa arus masuk ( in) dan keluar ( out ) dari wesel – pos ke Tapanuli , lebih banyak yang masuk ( in ), dan kalau yang out biasanya dikirim oleh orangtua untuk putra/i-nya yang kuliah di Jawa. ( jaman itu ATM belum ada kan )

    Umumnya prinsip para orangtua di bonapasogit ( mayoritas adalah petani, karyawan, buruh tani ) adalah mengutamakan pendidikan putra/i-nya, dengan alasan lebih sesuai dgn kemampuannya. Fakta membuktikan biasanya para orangtua kita mengerahkan segala ” fund and forces ” untuk menyekolahkan anak yang paling besar ( anak sulung ), dgn harapan apabila si anak telah selesai studinya dan bekerja dia akan membantu para adiknya. Dan biasanya kalau dana terbatas maka pendidikan u/ anak perempuan di nomor dua kan ( maaf itu adalah kenyataan ). Maka terjawablah statetment dari Solihin G.P tadi.

    Kenapa para putra/i yang telah sukses itu tidak kembali ke Tapanuli ? Jawabannya gampang karena DIMANA ADA GULA DISITU ADA SEMUT, karena gula lebih banyak di Jawa maka kesanalah semutnya. Memang sdh. menjadi nasib daerah Tapanuli tidak mempunyai sumber daya alam yang bisa di eksploitasi seperti daerah lain mis Aceh, Riau, Sumatera Selatan. Misalnya ada mika, belerang akan tetapi skala ekonominya tidak ekonomis untuk diolah. Jadi sangatlah beralasan apabila pemerintah kurang mengembangkan sarana dan prasarana dibandingkan dengan daerah lain. Padahal fasilitas tersebut
    adalah faktor penggerak geliat perekonomian di suatu daerah, tentu investor berpikir dua kali untuk menanamkan modalnya didaerah itu. Bayangkan putra daerah yang pengusaha saja enggan menanamkan modalnya apalagi para pensiunan ( putra daerah ) tidak akan pulang ke kampung.

    Kita perlu belajar kepada propinsi Sum. Barat ( setelah dimekarkan daerah Jambi dan Riau memisahkan diri dari SUMBAR ), kondisinya mirip dengan Tapanuli tidak mempunyai sumber daya alam u/ dieksploitasi. Akan tetapi daerah itu mempunyai sumber daya manusia ( SDM ) yang dibina melalui APBD sektor Pendidikannya dengan porsi 20 % dari total APBD SUMBAR. Gubernurnya mengatakan Pemda SumBar mengutamakan pengembangan SDM nya disamping pengembangan sarana / prasarana dan parawisata. ( Wawancara dgn. Peter Gontha di Q-TV ) .

    Bagaimana dengan kabupaten-kabupaten yang sdh. dimekarkan di daerah Tapanuli ( bahkan ada yang bercita-cita membentuk propinsi Tapanuli ), apa sanggup mencontoh SUMBAR ini, mengutamakan sektor Pendidikan, Sarana / Prasaran dan Parwisata dalam penyusunan APBD nya ?
    Sejarah membuktikan ( kebanggan masa lalu ) Tapanuli termasuk ranking ketiga secara nasional dalam kwalitas pendidikan pada era sebelum 1957 ( PRRI ), dimana sentra pendidikan waktu itu adalah Sigompulon – Tarutung, Soposurung – Balige, Pematang Siantar, Sipirok – Padang Sidempuan dan Sibolga. Pada peristiwa PRRI, ada 2 – generasi pemuda/i Batak yang ” hilang ” alias tertunda pendidkannya (drop – out) dengan alasan menjadi ” tentara pelajar ” ( SLA dan mahasiswa ) atau wesel tidak ada ( bagi mahasiswa yg di pulau Jawa ), padahal mereka potensial untuk maju.

    Hal yang sama dialami juga oleh daerah SUMBAR. Kemudian setelah Peristiwa G30S ( 1965 ) kwalitas pendidikan di Tapanuli drastis menurun, ini terlihat dari populasi anak daerah yang lulus penyaringan masuk ke perguruan tinggi di Jawa bahkan di Medan ( USU ).
    Jadi kita pantas memberi apresiasi atas kepeloporan dari amang T.B.Silalahi, Luhut Pandjaitan juga Akbar Tandjung ( mendirikan sekolah unggulan di Sibolga ) ; karena mereka telah menyadarkan kita akan strategi yang diperlukan untuk memningkatkan kwalitas SDM di – daerah Tapanuli karena hanya itu yang bisa kita andalkan, sumber yang lain ( kekayaan alam, tambang ) tidak ada seperti daerah lain.

  37. parulian simarmata

    Pembangunan tugu/makam/batu na pir di Samosir kelihatan sepintas merupakan pemborosan. Tapi mari kita lihat dari sisi lain. Pembangunan tugu/makam tsb. justru menjadi simbol persatuan keluarga dangan patungan/tek-tek-an membiayainya. Mengingat seluruh keluarga besar sudah berserak/merantau ke berbagai wilayah bahkan ke luar negeri. Dengan adanya persatuan tsb. generasi muda dari keluarga besar tsb. jadi saling mengenal saudaranya/kekerabatnya. Sekarang sudah mulai ada tradisi baru orang Batak khususnya dari daerah Samosir yaitu tradisi Ziarah ke makam keluarga. Hal ini tradisi baru yang justru membangun daerah Samosir. Bayangkan kalau tradisi ziarah ini sudah mendarah daging dilakukan setiap tahun, maka berbondong-bondong datang dari perantauan ke Samosir yang mengakibatkan perputaran uang yang dibawah oleh perantau akan meningkatkan perekonomian di Samosir. Ingat dengan tradisi mudik lebaran di Pulau Jawa, berapa milyar rupiah yang dibawa ke Jawa Tengah, Jawa Timur,DIY setiap lebaran.
    Memang sekarang baru tingkatnya membangun makam, tapi saya percaya di waktu yang akan datang kalau sudah selesai membangun makam maka berikutnya akan membangun pasilitas sosial yang lain, hal ini mengingat orang Batak terkenal kritis dan pintar. Dan jangan lupa pembentukan kabupaten baru di Tapanuli justru buah pemikiran tokoh tokoh Batak perantauan dari Jakarta. Ada juga gereja di Lumban Suhi-Suhi Samosir yang di rehab/bangun dan diprakarsai persatuan tokoh – tokoh dermawan yang berasal dari Lumban Suhi-Suhi yang dapat menjadi panutan generasi muda di masa yang akn datang. Cobalah kita memberikan ide ide yang kreatif untuk membangun Samosir seperti contoh membangun MCK atau sanitasi , dimana sangat sulit sekali menemukam MCK di Samosir.

Batak Toba Memperbaharui Tradisi:

October 12, 2008 at 12:23 am (Uncategorized) (, , )

Batak Toba Memperbaharui Tradisi:
Efesiensi Ruma Bolon dan Lumbung Sopo

Perubahan dari sopo tanpa dinding (kiri) menjadi ruma dengan dinding dan tangga menuju pintu di dinding depan (kanan) (Sumber: Building Research Institute, 1973)


 

 
Ada dua macam perubahan, dengan dua macam tolok ukur pula. Yang pertama proses perubahan menjadi lebih baik dan yang kedua, proses perubahan dalam arti kemerosotan menjadi lebih buruk. Tolok ukur baik-buruk, di satu sisi adalah efesiensi ekonomi dalam berbagai aspek materinya, di sisi yang lain adalah kualitas imaterialnya, seperti terapan kompleks ide-ide dalam seluruh aspek kehidupan. Sebagaimana di belahan bumi lain di Indonesia, tradisi arsitektur rakyat Batak Toba di Tapanuli Utara, tampaknya ada pada tarik-menarik dua pandangan tersebut. Rumah dalam tradisi masa lalunya, kini dihadapkan pada perubahan mentalitas sosial dan sekaligus resources yang makin langka. Perubahan, pada hakikatnya adalah merupakan proses pembaharuan kehidupan, termasuk arsitektur rakyat. Di sini, “baru” artinya segar dan menyegarkan nuansa hidup dan kehidupan baik masyarakat manusia maupun masyarakat alam. Dapatkah rakyat Batak Toba mencapainya?
 
   
Warisan religi dan peradaban megalit
   
Untuk itu, Batak Toba akan lebih baik dipahami dengan melihat peradaban dan kebudayaan proto-malayunya yang membawakan pada generasi kini, sisa-sisa tradisi peradaban mega dan neo-litikum. Di baliknya, adalah sistem kepercayaan kuno yang menjadi sumber inspirasi konsep-konsep arsitekturnya.
 
   
Bekas tiang-tiang dari batu yang dinamai oleh penduduk Sombaon Sibasiha (Keramat Tiang) di Desa Sibodiala di pedalaman Kota Balige, meja-meja dan kursi-kursi batu raja-raja Sialagan di Ambarita, Prapat, dan batu-kubur (rumah tulang) dan Candi Portibi di Padang Lawas (Tapanuli Selatan) adalah artefak-artefak perjalanan peradaban Batak Toba sampai dengan awal persinggungannya dengan Hiduisme. Begitu pula yang dapat dipahami dari prasasti bertahun 1208 yang ditemukan di Lobu Tua, ialah bahwa Kota Barus di pantai Barat Sumatera berperan sebagai “daerah tepi” bagi wilayah peradaban Batak Toba kuno yang berhubungan dengan dunia luar. Buktinya, sekitar tahun 1088, tercatat ada 1500 orang Tamil dari India Selatan bertempat tinggal di Barus, membentuk kesatuan perdagangan kapur barus dan kemenyan. Di abad XI, Islam pun datang di Sumatera pantai Barat melalui Barus. Tanah Toba sebagai salah satu “daerah pusat” budaya Batak, lambat laun pun menyerap dan mendewasakan dirinya, mengambil bentuk-bentuk penyesuaian. Hal itu dapat dilacak lewat antropologi bahasa, arkeologi kesenian, sejarah arsitekturnya dan lain-lain.
 
   
Perubahan mencolok mulai terjadi di awal 1970-an. Ada langgam arsitektur yang tersingkir oleh “rumah-rumah baru” yang lambat laun mengubah wajah perdesaan Toba. Sebagaimana yang terjadi di hampir seantero Nusantara sejak awal 1970-an, semangat gotong royong di desa-desa sudah kendur. Lewat proyek-proyek Pelita di masa Orde Baru, tradisi gotong royong sebagai “social capital”, tanpa disengaja telah terubah menjadi kerja berupah. Kemampuan masyarakat secara sosial-budaya, untuk mendirikan rumah adat sekarang ini pun, dengan demikian makin mengecil pula. Tambahan lagi jumlah nara sumber yang mengetahui dan menghayati nilai-nilai adat sudah jauh berkurang. Bahkan, beredar pula pandangan yang menganggap tidak perlu lagi hal-hal yang lama dan usang itu dipelihara. Selain masalah ekonomi bahan bangunan dan konstruksi, masyarakat tampaknya tengah memperbaharui tradisinya.
   
   
Mengubah kolong, gorga dan atap ijuk
   
Untuk mengikuti perubahan yang terjadi, perlu diingat bahwa dalam tradisi Batak Toba ada 2 jenis bangunan: rumah (ruma) dan lumbung padi (sopo). Rumah adalah “inganani jolma” yang artinya rumah adalah tempat tinggal bagi anak-anak manusia sedangkan sopo sebenarnya dirancang dan dibangun untuk “inganani barang” yang artinya tempat untuk barang-barang (Sukamto, 1980:47). Namun sopo juga merupakan bangunan serba guna: siang hari sebagai tempat pertemuan warga atau sebagai tempat perempuan menenun kain dan pada malam hari untuk tidur para pemuda. Umumnya pada huta (kampung atau kelompok hunian), ada dua deret ―deret ruma dan deret sopo― yang dipisahkan oleh ruang terbuka yang bersih, tidak ditanami. Di ruangan ini dilakukan bermacam-macam kegiatan sehari-hari sedangkan bagian belakang rumah kurang diperhatikan, sering ditanami sayur dan juga sebagai tempat pembuangan sampah. Bagian bawah kolong rumah zaman dahulu dipakai sebagai kandang binatang peliharaan.
 
   
Bangunan ruma dikenal dengan adanya tangga dan jalan masuk berupa pintu angkat yang berada pada lantai pertama yang tingginya kurang lebih hanya 1,60 m di atas tanah, sehingga sulit untuk masuk dengan membawa barang-barang yang besar, tinggi atau panjang. Lumbung atau sopo dibangun pada satu sisi dan rumah-rumah dibangun pada sisi yang lain, pintu masuknya dari dinding depan bukan dari bawah lantai panggungnya. Jalan desa berorientasi Timur�Barat, sehingga bagian depan rumah tersebut menghadap ke Selatan sedangkan lumbung padi atau sopo menghadap ke Utara. Namun dalam hal tertentu rumah-rumah tersebut diorientasikan ke arah tempat pengorbanan (somboan) di gunung yang keramat (simanuk-manuk). Sekarang banyak sopo yang berubah menjadi ruma. Sisa cirinya tinggal cakram penahan hama tikus yang dipasang di tiang-tiangnya.
 
   
Rumah Batak Toba melambangkan tri tunggal benua yaitu banua atas dilambangkan dengan atap rumah untuk tempat dewa, banua tengah dilambangkan dengan lantai dan dinding untuk tempat manusia dan banua bawah dilambangkan dengan kolong untuk tempat kematian. Sejak tahun 1970-an, nilai-nilai kesemestaan dalam pola pikir Toba tampaknya mulai berubah lebih cepat.Untuk kenyamanan dan akses, makin banyak rumah baru yang dibangun dengan tangga masuk yang berada di dinding depan, tak lagi di bawah lantai panggung. Bahkan ruma baru diubah total menjadi tanpa kolong. Artinya, secara praksis, konsepsi tentang dunia bawah sudah berubah seiring berubahnya konsepsi kesemestaan menurut agama yang sekarang dianut sebahagian besar masyarakat Batak Toba, yaitu Kristianisme.
 
 


Sebuah ruma pada tahun 1997 dengan penutup atap seng dan tanpa ornamen (sumber: http://www.pacros.net/ textile.htm)


Ornamen singa-singa, kepala manusia dilengkapi dengan kain tiga belit dengan sikap kaki berlutut ke bawah pipi kiri dan kanan; tek-nik ukir, dibentuk dari kayu dengan alat papatil dan beliung. Penem-patannya pada ujung kiri dan kanan dinding depan rumah tempat tinggal.
(Sumber: http://www.livingtravel. com)
 

 
Tradisi Toba sebetulnya mempunyai kelenturan jauh sebelum tahun 1970-an. Contohnya, mendirikan rumah adat yang memerlukan tenaga, biaya yang besar dan memakan waktu yang cukup lama tak harus sesuai dengan standart “jadi”. Banyak rumah yang seharusnya belum selesai sesuai dengan norma ataupun kaidah-kaidah adat yang berlaku, sudah ditempati. Antara rumah yang sudah selesai dengan rumah yang belum selesai dinamakan: “jabu bontean”. Ada pula “jabu ereng” yaitu sejenis rumah tempat tinggal yang tidak berukiran, tetapi dindingnya terbuat dari papan yang sudah diketam halus dan dipasang rapi. Rumah adat yang mempunyai hiasan lengkap disebut dengan “jabu Batara Guru”, “jabu Sibaganding Tua” atau ruma gorga. Rumah adat yang dahulu banyak ukiran sekarang sudah tidak ada lagi dan dibuat lebih sederhana. Perubahan itu tampaknya seiring dengan perubahan pemandangan desa yang sangat mencolok: dipakainya penutup atap seng pengganti ijuk.
 
   
Lenyapnya ijuk sebagai penutup atap adalah petunjuk pula bahwa rumah tradisional hanya tinggal sedikit di daerah Batak Toba dan bahkan hampir punah. Banyaknya kebakaran pada zaman dahulu atau faktor iklim tropis-lembab menyebabkan pula rumah tempat maupun lumbung masih tersisa, warnanya sudah banyak luntur akibat hujan. Atap ijuk juga terlalu mahal untuk dipelihara.
 
   
Jika atap ijuk dan ornamentasi ruma dan sopo mulai ditanggalkan, begitu pula dimensi dan ruang dalamnya. Meski ada kelenturan dalam tradisi membangun Batak Toba yang menghasilkan “jabu parbalebalean” (rumah yang agak kecil) dan ruma bolon (rumah besar), namun membangun rumah yang lebih sederhana adalah tuntutan kekinian. Dulu, ruang-ruang dalam tidak disekat, namun masih terdapat pembagian-pembagian yang tidak kasat mata. Sekarang baik pada rumah yang kecil maupun terutama pada ruma bolon, sering dijumpai adanya sekat-sekat papan untuk mendapatkan privasi.
 
   
Efesiensi joro bagi para arwah
   
Perubahan tak hanya bagi yang masih hidup, tapi akhirnya juga diterapkan pada yang telah wafat. Rumah tulang lama yang dibuat dari batu atau kayu, beberapa tahun terakhir ini telah diganti semen atau kapur. Karena itu rumah tulang sekarang disebut simin yang berasal dari kata semen. Struktur rumah tulang tidak lagi sama dengan rumah tinggal. tidak ada lagi balok wuwung yang melengkung berbentuk trapesium atau ulu ni rumah singa dan tidak berhias ornamen tradisional, digantikan simbol salib.
 
 


Ruma dan kolong rumah yang sama sekali berubah fungsi
(Sumber: http://www.orientalarchitecture.com)
 

 
Begitu pula dengan joro: rumah miniatur dari kayu beratap ijuk yang dibuat untuk seseorang yang telah wafat. Joro memiliki ukiran kayu dan hiasan yang indah sebagaimana halnya yang terdapat pada rumah sebenarnya. Dengan demikian joro “benar-benar rumah” dalam ukuran kecil, untuk si wafat. Rumah miniatur ini dibangun oleh janda dari suami yang telah meninggal, terutama apabila ia tanpa anak laki-laki (punu), tidak mempunyai saudara ipar laki-laki yang dapat mewarisinya sebagai istri atau jika ia terlalu tua untuk melahirkan anak lagi.
 
   
Mendirikan bolon, sopo berkolong (panggung) atau joro sekarang menjadi lebih sulit karena bahan-bahannya sukar dicari dan biaya mendirikannya jauh lebih besar dari pada rumah dan joro model baru tanpa kolong. Masyarakat pedesaaan Toba menginginkan konstruksi yang lebih praktis, mudah didirikan dan biaya yang lebih murah.
 
   
Sangat boleh jadi perubahan pandangan hidup masa kini yang sarat dengan nilai-nilai ekonomilah yang memicu perubahan itu. Berarti, pemaknaan atau tata nilai religius lama yang dibawakan oleh ornamen itu tak lagi terterapkan dalam kehidupan karena sudah digantikan dengan tata nilai baru. Jika tata nilai itu masih diterapkan, pasti representasinya pada simbol-simbol arsitektural tetap eksis dengan yang metoda yang lebih ekonomis. Jadi di permukaan kasat mata, perubahan ini tampak disebabkan faktor ketersediaan bahan atau kemampuan finansial untuk membiayai pembuatan atap berpenutup ijuk, pengukiran ruma gorga atau tiang-tiang kolong dan unsur-unsur tradisi arsitektur lainnya. Tetapi di kedalaman fenomena kasat mata itu baru tampak sebab yang lebih mendasar: berubahnya mentalitas, tata nilai dan pola pikir masyarakat dari tradisi megalitik dan neolitik ―sebagian besar― ke tradisi kristianisme.

CCngaMangaraja was Killed by the Dutch and now BATAK still couldnt get up and manage their own affairs.too busy calling Gods name.the reality so many batak overseas and enjoy life with the dutch rathen after dutch gone from Indonesia.

October 12, 2008 at 12:02 am (Uncategorized) (, )

Raja Si Singamangaraja XII (1849-1907)
Pahlawan Nasional yg didalangi oleh guerilla islam seluruh indonesia.ccngamangaraja was islam yg terpaksa atau di paksa laskar jihad islam seperti yg terjadi di ambon yg di dalangi oleh FPI.ingat?

 

Dia seorang pejuang sejati, yang anti penjajahan dan perbudakan. Pejuang yang tidak mau berkompromi dengan penjajah kendati kepadanya ditawarkan menjadi Sultan Batak. Ia memilih lebih baik mati daripada tunduk pada penjajah. Ia kesatria yang tidak mau mengkhianati bangsa sendiri demi kekuasaan. Ia berjuang sampai akhir hayat. 

__________________

Perjuangannya untuk memerdekakan ‘manusia bermata hitam’ dari penindasan penjajahan si mata putih (sibontar mata), tidak terbatas pada orang Tapanuli (Batak) saja, tetapi diartikan secara luas dalam rangka nasional.

Semua orang yang bermata hitam dianggapnya saudara dan harus dibela dari penjajahan si mata putih (sibontar mata). Dia merasa dekat dengan siapa saja yang tidak melakukan penindasan, tanpa membedakan asal-usul. Maka ia pun mengangkat panglimanya yang berasal dari Aceh.

Dengan dasar itulah, sehingga ketika pertempuran melawan penjajah Belanda di Balige tahun 1883, Si Singamangaraja XII berupaya mendekati serdadu Belanda yang antara lain terdiri dari saudara-saudara sebangsa dari Jawa yang jelas juga bermata hitam. Ia mencoba memberitahukan persaudaraan di antara mereka dibandingkan dengan orang Belanda, yang ketika itu diidentikkan dengan sekelompok etnis bermata putih yang suka melakukan penindasan.

Raja Si Singamangaraja XII yang lahir pada tahun 1849 di Bakkara, Tapanuli, sebuah daerah di tepian Danau Toba, ini diangkat menjadi raja pada tahun 1867 menggantikan ayahnya Raja Si Singamangaraja XI yang meninggal dunia akibat penyakit kolera. Sebagaimana leluhurnya, sejak Si Singamangaraja II, gelar Raja dan kepemimpinan selalu diturunkan dari pendahulunya secara turun temurun.

Sebagaimana dengan Si Singamangaraja I sampai XI, beliau juga merupakan seorang pemimpin yang sangat menentang perbudakan yang memang masih lazim masa itu. Jika beliau pergi ke satu desa (huta), beliau selalu meminta agar penduduk desa tersebut memerdekakan orang yang sedang dipasung karena hutang atau kalah perang, orang-orang yang ditawan yang hendak diperjualbelikan dan diperbudak.

Pada masa pemerintahannya, kegiatan zending pengembangan agama Kristen oleh Nommensen Cs dari Jerman juga sedang berlangsung di Tapanuli. Tidak begitu lama dengan itu, kekuasaan kolonial Belanda pun mulai memasuki daerah Tapanuli. Maka untuk menghadapi segala kemungkinan, ia pun mulai mengadakan persiapan-persiapan dengan mengadakan musyawarah dengan raja-raja serta panglima daerah Humbang, Toba, Samosir, dan Pakpak/Dairi.

Perang urat syaraf pun makin meningkat pada kedua belah pihak. Walaupun sudah dicoba, jalan damai sudah tidak dapat lagi ditempuh. Maka pada tanggal 19 Pebruari 1878 serangan mulai dilancarkan pasukan Si Singamangaraja XII yaitu rakyat Tapanuli sendiri terhadap pos pasukan Belanda di Bahal Batu, dekat Tarutung.

Pertempuran yang menewaskan banyak penduduk tersebut akhirnya memaksa pasukan Si Singamangaraja mundur. Tapi walaupun harus mundur dari Bahal Batu, semangat juang perlawanan pasukan itu masih tetap tinggi terutama di desa-desa yang belum tunduk pada Belanda seperti Butar, Lobu Siregar, Tangga Batu, dan Balige selaku basis pasukan Si Singamangaraja XII ketika penyerangan ke Bahal Batu.

Sebaliknya di pihak Belanda, dengan kemenangan di Bahal Batu tersebut, semakin berani mengejar terus pasukan Si Singamangaraja XII sampai ke desa-desa yang tidak tunduk pada kolonial. Dalam pengejaran tersebut, mereka selalu membakar desa dan menawan raja-raja desa. Akibatnya, pertempuran pun berkobar di mana-mana seperti di Sipintu-pintu, Tangga Batu, Balige, Bakkara dan sebagainya.

Bahkan dalam pertempuran kedua di Balige, Si Singamangaraja XII sempat terkena peluru di atas lengan, walau lukanya tidak sampai membahayakan nyawanya namun kuda putihnya si hapas pili mati ketika itu. Ia pun melakukan perang gerilia.

Dengan begitu, Si Singamangaraja XII pun terpaksa berpindah-pindah seperti dari Balige ke Bakkara kemudian ke Huta Paung di Dolok Sanggul, selanjutnya ke Lintong (kampung pamannya (tulang) Ompu Babiat Situmorang) dan kembali lagi ke Bakkara, begitulah terkadang berulang. Dan ketika kedua kalinya Si Singamangaraja XII menyingkir ke Lintong, Belanda pun menyerbu ke sana secara tiba-tiba pada tahun 1989.

 

Mendapat penyerangan yang tiba-tiba dan menghadapi persenjataan yang lebih modern dari Belanda, akhirnya perlawanan gigih pasukan Si Singamangaraja XII pun terdesak. Dari situlah dia dan keluarga serta pasukannya menyingkir ke Dairi, yang kemudian selama 21 tahun tidak mengadakan serangan terbuka pada pasukan Belanda.Pada kurun waktu itu, beliau tetap mengadakan perlawanan dengan cara melakukan kunjungan ke berbagai daerah seperti ke Aceh dan raja-raja kampung (huta) di Tapanuli dengan maksud agar hubungan di antara mereka tetap terjaga terutama memberi semangat kepada mereka agar tidak mau tunduk pada Belanda. Akibatnya perlawanan oleh raja-raja terhadap Belanda pun kerap terjadi. Pihak Belanda meyakini, bahwa perlawanan yang dilakukan oleh raja-raja kampung itu tidak lepas dari pengaruh Si Singamangaraja XII.Pihak penjajah Belanda juga melakukan upaya pendekatan (diplomasi) dengan menawarkan penobatan Si Singamangaraja sebagai Sultan Batak, dengan berbagai hak istimewa sebagaimana lazim dilakukan Belanda di daerah lain. Namun Si Singamangaraja menolak tawaran itu.

Sehingga usaha untuk menangkapnya mati atau hidup semakin diaktifkan. Dan setelah melalui pengepungan yang ketat selama tiga tahun, akhirnya markasnya ketahuan oleh serdadu Belanda. Dalam pengejaran dan pengepungan yang sangat rapi, peristiwa tragis pun terjadi. Dalam satu pertempuran jarak dekat, komandan pasukan Belanda kembali memintanya menyerah dan akan dinobatkan menja Sultan Batak. Namun pahlawan yang merasa tidak mau tunduk pada penjajah ini lebih memilih lebih baik mati daripada menyerah.

Dalam sejarah perjuangan nasional Indonesia, ia seorang pejuang yang tidak mau berkompromi dengan Belanda. Sehingga terjadilah pertempuran sengit yang menewaskan hampir seluruh keluarganya melawan penjajah. Patuan Bosar Ompu Pulo Batu atau Raja Si Singamangaraja XII bersama dua putra dan satu putrinya serta beberapa panglimanya yang berasal dari Aceh gugur pada saat yang sama yaitu tanggal 17 Juni 1907 di Sionom Hudon. Kedua putranya itu yaitu putra sulungnya Patuan Nagari dan Patuan Anggi sedangkan putrinya bernama boru Lopian, srikandi sejati yang masih berumur 17 tahun.

Raja Si Singamangaraja XII tepatnya gugur di hutan daerah Simsim, Sindias di kaki gunung Sitapongan, kurang lebih 9-10 km dari Pearaja, Sionom Hudon, Tapanuli, Sumatera Utara. (Disebut Sionom Hudon, sesuai dengan keenam marga yang menguasai daerah itu yaitu Tinambunan, Tumanggor, Maharaja, Pinayungan, Turutan, dan Anakampun). Jenazahnya mula-mula dimakamkan di Tarutung, kemudian dipindahkan ke Sopo Surung Balige.

Keluarga Si Singamangaraja XII yang turut gugur dalam pertempuran melawan kolonial Belanda tersebut bukan hanya dua putra dan putri yang sangat disayanginya tersebut, tapi tidak lama sebelumnya, abangnya yang bernama Ompu Parlopuk juga sudah gugur ketika melancarkan perang Gerilya tersebut. Demikian halnya dengan sang Permaisuri Raja Si Singamangaraja XII, boru Situmorang, juga telah lebih dulu meninggal tidak lama sebelum wafatnya Si Singamangaraja XII akibat keletihan bergerilya di tengah hutan.

Bahkan, Pulo Batu, cucu yang sangat disayanginya, harus meninggal di usia muda sebelum kakeknya. Raja Si Singamangaraja XII alias Ompu Pulo Batu (Ompu Pulo Batu merupakan penamaan yang diambil dari nama cucu laki-laki paling sulung dari putranya paling sulung, dalam hal ini Pulo Batu merupakan anak sulung dari Patuan Nagari), akhirnya harus sama-sama wafat dengan cucu yang sebelumnya sangat diharapkannya menjadi penerus perjuangannya itu.

Perang Batak yang dipimpin Si Singamangaraja XII di Tapanuli, Sumatera Utara yang pecah sejak tahun 1878 itu, akhirnya berakhir sudah. Sejarah mencatat, ketika gugurnya sang pahlawan ini yang menjadi Gubernur Jenderal yaitu pemangku jabatan Kerajaan Belanda yang tertinggi daerah kolonial di Nusantara adalah Gubernur Jenderal J.B.van Heutsz, sedangkan Gubernur Militer di Aceh yang mencakup Sumatera Utara adalah Jenderal G.O.E.van Daalen.

Dan dibawah pasukan Kapten Christoffel alias ‘Si Macan Aceh’, seorang berkebangsaan Swiss yang sebelumnya hanya merupakan serdadu bayaran, namun kemudian tahun 1906 menjadi warga negara Belanda, akhirnya sang pahlawan, Raja Si Singamangaraja XII gugur tertembak.

Kapten Christoffel yang melaporkan gugurnya Raja Si Singamangaraja XII di Tanah Batak kepada Gubernur Jenderal J.B.van Heutsz di Bogor ketika itu membawa bukti jarahan berupa Piso Gaja Dompak dan Stempel Kerajaan. Stempel kerajaan dan Piso Gaja Dompak pun secara resmi disampaikan oleh Bataviaaschap Genootschap van Kunsten en Wetenschappen (Lembaga Kebudayaan dan Ilmu Pengetahuan di Batavia) pada rapatnya tanggal 7 Agustus 1907 kepada Museum di Gedung Gajah (Jalan Merdeka Barat sekarang-red). Piso Gaja Dompak waktu itu diberi tanda nomor 13425.

Mengenai pusaka yang satu ini, beberapa kalangan anggota keluarga Raja Si Singamangaraja XII mengklaim, bahwa Piso Gajah Dompak yang sebenarnya masih disimpan oleh anggota keluarga. Sementara yang lain mengatakan bahwa salah seorang dari pihak boru (pihak dari anak perempuan) yang menyimpannya. Bahkan ada pula yang mengatakan bahwa Piso Gaja Dompak itu telah menghilang ke langit.

Piso Gaja Dompak itu sendiri adalah satu keris yang panjangnya sekitar 60-70 cm dengan pegangan yang menyerupai patung gajah. Menurut keluarga Si Singamangaraja dan berdasarkan hasil penelitian berbagai sarjana, pusaka ini sudah ada sejak Si Singamangaraja I yaitu sekitar pertengahan abad XVI Masehi. Bersama stempel kerajaan, pusaka tersebut merupakan lambang penting dari pemerintahan Raja Si Singamangaraja I sampai ke XII.

Perang yang berlangsung selama 30 tahun itu memang telah mengakibatkan korban yang begitu banyak bagi rakyat termasuk keluarga Si Singamangaraja XII sendiri. Tapi walaupun Si Singamangaraja XII telah wafat, tidak berarti secara langsung membuat perang di tanah Batak berakhir, sebab sesudahnya terbukti masih banyak perlawanan dilakukan oleh rakyat Tapanuli khususnya pengikut dari Si Singamangaraja XII sendiri.

Di hati rakyat sudah tumbuh semangat kemerdekaan dari segala bentuk penindasan seperti yang sudah ditanamkan sang pahlawan. Namun perlawanan rakyat itu tidak lagi sebesar perlawanan yang dipimpin Si Singamangaraja XII, sebab Belanda sudah semakin banyak menguasai kampung-kampung. Di samping itu, ketika itu pemimpin perlawanan rakyat itu pun belum ada yang bisa menyamai Si Singamangaraja XII yang bisa menghimpun semua raja-raja di Tapanuli bahkan dari Aceh.

Sejak itu sejarah baru pun tertulis. Daerah Aceh dan Sumatera Utara bagian pedalaman yang sampai tahun 1903 masih belum bisa dikuasai Belanda dan bahkan sebelum wafatnya Si Singamangaraja XII pada tanggal 17 Juni 1907 itu, kekuasaan Hindia Belanda di Nusantara masih minus Sumatera Utara bagian pedalaman, akhirnya berakhir. Sejak itu lengkaplah seluruh wilayah Nusantara menjadi daerah jajahan Belanda sebab Sumatera Utara bagian pedalaman inilah yang merupakan daerah terakhir di Nusantara yang dimasukkan ke dalam kekuasaan pemerintahan penjajahan Belanda.

LAST CHAPTER FROM CRAZY BATAK MENTALITY PROBLEMS.COULDNT DEBATE ANYTHING.!!

October 11, 2008 at 4:01 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

Jadi apa langkah-langkah yang akan diambil pemerintah Indonesia? Hanya berpidato saja (mencari kambing hitam putih) atau menaikkan standard penerbangan yang sudah tercoreng?

[reply to this comment]

  • Org asia itu biasa megang pacul dan babat. biasanya naik kreta kerbo dan kuda gigit besi.becak aja ngga bisa di emudikan apalagi pesawat terbang.yah kan kaget.bhs pengantar di dlm pesawat bhs inggris.gimana ngga blepotan ..udh lah …asia itu otak nya di dekat pahanya koq.itu di bawah pusar.semua dunia tau koq, intelnegara indonesia aja tdk menghargai penerbangan nasional.malah mempergunakan alat utk meracun i mush yg tdk bersenjata munir.mati kena racun di pesawat Garuda.Nah sekarang Garuda sdh kehilangan route nya ke eropah.siapa yg mau pake Garuda lagi?udh makanan nya nasi dan rendang yg bau nya dapur nya sangat keras bau cabe nya.dasar org hutan masuk metropolitan.
    tolong bercermin dulu semua kalian org asai yg sok pintar tapi goblok.gengsi kan?kalau di bilangin goblok pasti tersinggung.
    ini lah namanya petentengan sok kaya tapi miskin.
    jadi kalau boleh ingat ada kata mutiar di negara barat:
    always express your self not impress ……….ini indonesia/asaia memakai hukum terbalik. selalu meng ipressikan senyum palsu tapi aslinya busuk.bau mulut nya.

  • satu lagi bah buat kalian asia umum nya bangso ku Batak.ingat nih:

    persoalan limbah indorayon racun nya itu akan sikit demi sedikit akan menjadi bukit.jadi bilang dulu sama pegawai batak si Panjaitan heang itu agar dia tinggal di daerah pabrik itu seperti org batak yg berdomisili di balige atau porsea.kalau boleh tinggal bersama dgn rakyat nya agar dia nanti kena effect nya. kalau hanya 30 minute show ke public pakai kalimat marsuap air limbah nya ..sok pintar.sok jago.kalau boleh kasih dulu aku membawa contoh air nya ke australia biar kami bawa ke laboratorium.jgn di cek di medan atau jakarta bisa bisa pegawai laboratorium nya di sogok.
    sai di baeon do.asa hu pabilak hae haeni siPanjaitan i.
    ingat org batak paling ada 10 thn lagi pabrik itui beroperasi pasti akan tutup soal nya hutan /lahan kayu sudah habis,jadi percis seperti pabrik kertas yg di siantar tutup ingat ngga?…ada yg ingat?….di bawah nomensen atau jln asahan?arah ke kisaran ?…..sebelum rambung merah?….
    jadi pabrik tutup tapi lembah neraka akan bertempat tinggal di danau toba seumur hidup dan rakyat nya akan sakit akibat effect sampingan nya.seperti di hirosima jpg kena radiasi nuklir.
    kalau perusahaan tutup nanti tdk akan bisa lagi di tuntut perusahaan.karena tdk lagi eksist…tapi masih ada yg bisa di tuntut yaitu pemerintah indonesia dan pemegang saham nya.siapa?
    Luhut dan cukong china dan org jawa di jakarta.
    ayo batak sekarang penduduk balige udh memakan uang sogok dari perusahaan tapi nanti jgn menyesal keturunan mu generasi muda mu akan memotong leher org batak yg sudah kaya hasil korupsi nya. enjoy lah sekarang batak yg kaya berkuasa nanti kau pasti membayar nya dgn nyawa atau harta mu akan di bakar oleh generasi batak yg marah. ya mungkin ya. aku yakin karena mereka stress dgn permainan kartu jorok pejabat dan batakk yg bisuk na pittar alias begu harangan gajjang.

  • Inilah Indonesia. Pemerintah seperti kebakaran jenggot karena file rahasia itu bocor ke masyarakat. Seharusnya pemerintah sadar setelah terjadinya kebocoran itu : di masyarakat telah berkembang praduga dan pelan-pelan dipercaya sebagai kebenaran, bahwa jatuhnya pesawat Adam Air lantaran maskapai itu melanggar standar keamanan penerbangan, mungkin untuk menekan ongkos operasional supaya mampu bersaing.

    Sampai kapan Pemerintah tetap berlagak pilon, dan membiarkan masyarakat wasawas setiap kali mau naik pesawat terbang ? Pemerintah yang begini tidak boleh dibiarkan terlalu lama berkuasa, karena mereka tidak menghargai kehidupan.

    Salam Merdeka!

    Kenapa sih harus emosi dan marah-marah lihat tuh katanya berita kompas kemarin kasus TPL diangkat yaitu penduduk siruar yang Porsea yang menderita gatal-gatal karena limbah dari Indo Rayon. Kenapa juga pemda dan pemuka agama belakangan ini dituduh tidak pernah ikut bicara ke tpl, sama seperti pemda atau unsur-unsur tobasa yang juga diammmm? itu yang bilang orang-orang lho, jadi kalaupun sudah ada yang pernah berjuang sebelumnya kalau bisa jangan putus asa.

  • OK deh… gw malas adu argumen sama si roy sianipar ini. Walau bagaimanapun dia masih satu suku dengan gw, cuma dia lari sakamar, ngakunya orang sastrawan… coba anda baca postingannya di milis ini ada gak nilai sastranya/berbobot gak… OKlah kita bisa maklumi soalnya sastrawan dari Tarutung.. (kikikikkk….) Tarutung giccuu.. lho..!

    Gw jadi ingat ada juga sastrawan dari tarutung juga dengan ketuanya Thomson HS dengan perkumpulan Laklaknya. Buat Proposal penggalangan dana biar bisa mentas di jakarta… eh gak taunya dia gelapkan tuh dana, gak ada di kasih sama anggotanya… ihh jahat ya..! jangan-jangan loe salah satu dari mereka yak, kacian deh loe… Itu salah satu contoh ulah sastrawan di Tarutung. Bisa jadi siroybabijalang ini berangkat ke Australia tunggu buat proposal dulu hihiiii…..

    Saya sudah tahu ekonomi orang tarutung, kejakarta aja susah ongkos apalagi ke LN. Kalaupun bisa ke LN ya gitu deh buat proposal ngumpulin dana…. makanya kalau ada yg gratis-gratis langsung diembat… liat aja blognya si roybabijalang ini. Mumpung gratis.. langsung main borong aja…busheeet deh.. inilah prototype orang tarutung… ini berlaku juga di pesta, kalau lagi bagi-bagi makanan tangannya dua-duanya diangkat ( di son dope… dison dope….)padahal sudah dapat jatah tapi diumpetin di dalam roknya terus bawa kantongan plastik juga. Makanya siroy babijalang ini juga seperti itu.
    Itu sebabnya saya katakan Babi dari Tarutung Babi juga di Negeri Orang, kagak bakalan berubah…

    Biar kau tau ya.. indorayon/TPL sudah merambah hutan juga sampai ke Tarutung. Hariara yang menjadi kuburan Oppung kau juga sudah dibabatnya biar di buat kertas.

    Memang suatu saat pabrik ini akan tutup koq, tunggu habis dulu hutan di kampung yang kau banggain itu.

Kau bilang kau orang batak itu ajapun kau tidak tau, lagipula koq yakin kali kau marga sianipar belum, tentu kau bermarga sianipar/orang batak soalnya mamak kau kan LONDUR. Kan sudah banyak orang yg entotin mamak kau anak babijalang.

    Oh .. ya… Blogmu semuanya parah ya… sampai segitu aja kemampuan otak loe… Andaliman aja pulanya kau makan sekali-kali makan dodak itu biar lancar otakmu itu. Muncung kau aja yg besar tapi IQmu jongkok.

    Blogmu banyak tapi isinya caplokan semua… malu-maluin aja. Gak bisa desain web. ya… makan ampas itu…!

    Minta ijin dari siapa loe… nyaplok postingan gw dari blog ini. Udah kebiasaan kau ya nyaplok sana sini, mungkin kau di tarutung tukang nyaplok juga kan. Soalnya Babi dari Tarutung Babi juga di negeri orang dan makanannya tetap aja dodak sama ampas.

    LOK AT THE HKBP CONTROLLING BY SOME MARGA GRUOP.AND THEY WILL STA THERE UNTIL THE COW COME HOME. THATS WHY THE REASON HKBP CRACKED AND BLOWN UP NOT VERY LONG AGO.

    ONE THING VERY CONTRAST ABOUT BATAK,WHEN PANJAITAN ON TOP THERE WILL MORE PANJAITAN AT THE BOTTOM.NOT TRUE?FIND OUT YOUR SELF .YOU NEED TO EXPLORE MORE ABOUT BATAK CHARACTERS.

    THATS WHY BATAK NEVER BE UNITED AMONG ALL TRIBES/CLANS .THIS ETHNIC/CLANS PROBLEMS IS GOOD FOR OUT SIDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE TO RULES /INVADE BATAK .

  • Roy Sianipar ini punya sakit jiwa. Dia keki berat dengan tanggapan tulisan kepadanya dari Petrus Sianipar(Gadungan)dan Babi Panggang Karo(BPK), karena stres akhirnya dia yang akhirnya menulis comment mengatas namakan Petrus Sianipar dan Babi Panggang Karo (BPK) yang isinya menghujat dirinya sendiri.

    Hahahahahahahahhaha….. Roy kau memang dungu!!!!

  • Kalau memang kita semua yang ada disini merasa hebat dari Batak yang ada di tanah Batak sana, Maka sudah sebaiknya kita buktikan dengan perbuatan yang bisa menolong Batak yang ada di kampung. Bukan hanya ngomong besar tanpa ada tindakan yang nyata yang bisa memperbaiki kehidupan yang mungkin sudah mulai tidak nyaman, dan lain sebagainya. KIta tidak perlu berdebat disini dengan bahasa yang sangat tidak pantas diucapka oleh manusia yang berpendidikan dan punya pengalaman .

  • Sebenarnya dari semua perkataan perkatan yang ito lontarkan di atas saya mengerti bahwa sebenarnya ito ini sangat peduli dengan keadaan tanah atau hutan di tanah batak yang sudah semakin rusak, etika atau moral masyarakat yang sudah semakin buruk, ( korupsi, selingkuh , merusak hutan ) ” hampir seluruh Indonesia ” bukan hanya tanah batak saja. Dan itu tidak bisa kita hindarkan dengan membunuh mereka atau menghancurkan mereka kalaupun kita lebih baik dari mereka. Mari kita bersyukur karena kita bukan termasuk dari salah satu yang buruk yang terjadi di kampung kita sana. Kalau kita tidak bisa membantu dengan cara apapun, paling tidak kita jangan merusak citra batak yang sudah rusak ( menurut ito ) dengan mencaci maki dengan bahasa yang sangat tidak senonoh di telinga saya sebagai manusia dimana ito sendiripun orang batak juga dan tidak bisa dipungkiri bahw ito adalah marga Sianipar yang sudah pasti keturunan Batak asli. Yang akhirnya dengan saling memaki disini sesama Batak lagi, yang membuat semakin rusak dan jelek nama Batak yang dikampung atau yang di luar negeri karena semuanya tidak bisa menahan diri untuk membalas walaupun hanya lewat Blog beritanya Ito Jarar ini. Dan lagipun topiknya dari awal jauh sekali beda dengan yang dibahas sekarang ini. Jadi kalau bisa, kita sudahi aja hal-hal yang membuat kita jadi emosi dan saling menghujat. Itu tidak ada gunanya. Terimaksih buat semuanya.

  • Ita… Roy sianipar ini memang punya gangguan kejiwaan, tidak usah Ita capek2 menanggapi tanggapannya. Apa yang dia ucapkan saja tidak pernah jelas, coba aja Ita cari sendiri deh di google search aja nama Roy Sianipar disana, isinya blog2 tidak bermutu yang kerjanya cuma mencaci maki oeang Indonesia yang dia anggap bodoh, mencaci agama Islam, mencaci orang Batak sendiri… tidak jelas apa sebenarnya yang ia perjuangkan itu. Biarlah Ita orang2 seperti Roy Sianipar ini hidup di alamnya sendiri karena sudah bangga untuk bisa tinggal di Australia. Kita semua orang Indonesia dari suku apapun itu yang cinta tanah air berusaha sebaik mungkin memberikan yang terbaik buat negara kita… anggap saja komentar Roy Sianipar itu hanya gonggongan anjing ==> “anjing menggonggong kafilah berlalu”
