Not a Source of Islamic Democratization Problems

The implementation of a number of democratization in Muslim countries is a cause problem. However, this problem occurs not because of Islam as a religion of the community.

These teachers expressed great Driyarkara School Philosophy Franz Magnis-Suseno dialogue in the German-Indonesian media "Islam, Democracy, and Freedom of Media", on Tuesday (4 / 3). Attended as a speaker in the seminar is Hans-Ludwig Frese's Kleio Bremen Humanities, professor of UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta Azyumardi Azra, and Siti Musdah Mulia from the Indonesian Conference on Religion and Peace.

According Magnis, the problems that occur in the process of democratization in the countries of the third world due to the failure of democratic transition process. Traditional structure of society is not ready to change into modern society.

"Traditional framework of society that is stable should be forced to change according to the global order. This condition ability creates social, economic, security and stability in the community to be disrupted, "he said.

For Indonesia, according to Magnis, a problem that occurred during the process of democratization during the last 10 years due to corruption and weak governance.

While Azyumardi said, the implementation of democracy in a Muslim country in the world is not something new. Since the independence, the people are Muslim, Indonesia received a democracy. After the experience of democracy in the era of Soekarno Terpimpin and Pancasila democracy in the era of Soeharto, Indonesia is now trying to implement real democracy.

Increased awareness is the world during the last two decades also occurred in Indonesia. However, it is believed will not disrupt the implementation of democracy that is being executed.

"In the running of religious obedience does not have a reciprocal relationship with the reverse political choice," continued Azyumardi.

This condition is clearly visible from the party winning the election which is a nationalist party. Parties founded Islam or Muslims based on the mass is not the main choice community. In fact, the number of Muslim population in Indonesia reached 88 percent.

Success of democratization in Indonesia participated in is supported by two largest Islamic mass organizations, the Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah. Both civil society groups that are already independent states and the Pancasila state ideology as the Unity of Indonesia and the final form of the state.

"This does not happen in the Middle East. There does not have civil society groups are independent from the influence of the state, "specifically.
