MUHAMMADIYAH.OR.ID, JAKARTA – Celebrating its 111th year, Muhammadiyah reflects on a century-plus journey defined by benevolence and unwavering commitment to independence.
Chairman of Muhammadiyah Busyro Muqoddas highlighted Muhammadiyah’s enduring dedication to philanthropy, education, health, and organizational autonomy.
“Muhammadiyah paths are guided by its roadmap, beliefs, life goals, and decrees,” said Busyro in the national meeting of the Muhammadiyah Council for Laws and Human Rights (MHH) at Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang (UMM) on Friday (November 10).
Muhammadiyah’s unwavering adherence to its ideology has allowed the organization to maintain its independence and ensure a cohesive organizational structure from the central to local branches, according to Busyro. The international reach of Muhammadiyah through the Muhammadiyah Special Branch (PCIM) further attests to this consistency.
Addressing policies discussed at the MHH National Meeting, Busyro urged thoughtful consideration for matters such as the Policy on Government Employees with Employment Agreements (PPPK), the 2023 Civil Servant Law, and Health Law.
Busyro saw this as a manifestation of Muhammadiyah’s cadres’ vision, mission, and responsibility in nurturing the organization by expressing hope for comprehensive studies and input from the meeting participants.
Quoting Bob Hefner, Busyro emphasized Muhammadiyah as a beacon of hope for the world, particularly for Indonesia, amid challenges of demoralization and degradation of democracy.
“This national meeting may result in a roadmap for legal and human rights policies for the next fifteen years, ensuring continuity from one congress to another and from one meeting to the next. The celebration of Muhammadiyah’s rich history becomes a reflection and a forward-looking commitment to continued growth and positive impact,” said Busyro.
