Yogyakarta – Tanwir Samarinda had an important and strategic momentum for two reasons. First, Muhammadiyah entered the final phase of the 46th Congressional Mandate 2010 in Yogyakarta and began the 47th Congressional Mandate 2015 in Makassar. Second, Tanwir Samarinda has a situational connection with the condition and the dynamic development of Indonesia, which is currently holding 2014 Election for legislative and president and vice president to determine Indonesia’s leader for the next five years.
According to Dahlan Rais, the Committee Chairman of OC Tanwir of Muhammadiyah Central Executive, the technical preparation for Tanwir Samarinda has reached 95%, including the two most important parts, the court trial and the materials for Tanwir. “Tanwir Samarinda will discuss the quality of Muhammadiyah’s actions. In addition to the stable quantity, Tanwir Samarinda will also include the nation’s problem in the present and in the future,” Dahlan Rais, who is also the Chairman of Muhammadiyah Central Executive, stated to the reporter of muhammadiyah.or.id on Friday (5/9).
As it is already known, the Central Executive of Muhammadiyah will also hold the second highest Congress (Musyawarah), after the Congressional meeting (second Tanwir) in Samarinda, East Kalimantan. The Tanwir will be held in Hotel Mesra, Samarinda (5/23-25). There will be hundred members of each Muhammadiyah Provincial Executive throughout Indonesia, as well as the Councils and Organizations, and Autonomous Organizations. Tanwir Samarinda will hold a theme on Dakwah Pencerahan Menuju Indonesia Berkemajuan.
The Chairman of BPH Muhammadiyah University of Surakarta also reminded the members and the participants of Tanwir, both the Councils and Autonomous Organization, to not forget that Muhammadiyah should have wider range. “Muhammadiyah should be able to reach wider area, to sectors we have not done before. We should not forget these wider-ranged problems. And we should not reduce the propaganda in wider range. Of course we will see how Muhammadiyah act,” he concluded. (dzar)
