Pengurus harus menanggalkan atribut organisasi kalau terlibat dalam tim sukses.
JAKARTA — Pengurus Besar Nandlatul Ulama (PBNU) mengeluarkan Surat Edaran (SE) untuk menegaskan netralitasnya dalam pemilihan presiden dan wakil presiden 2014. Setiap pengurus, mulai dari tingkat pusat hingga daerah, apabila terlibat dalam tim sukses diwajibkan menanggalkan atribut organisasi.
Sekretaris Jenderal PBNU H Marsudi Syuhud mengatakan, SE ini diterbitkan setelah mempertimbangkan perkembangan situasi politik menjelang Pilpres 2014. “Dukung mendukung silakan, tapi bersifat pribadi,” kata dia, Kamis (12/6).
SE bernomor 3208/C.I.33/06/2014 berudul Taushiyah Khashshah bagi Nandliyin dan Nandliyat tersebut diterbitkan pada 2 Juni 2014. Surat ditandatangani empat pimpinan PBNU, yaitu Pj Rais ‘Aam PBNU Dr KH A Mustofa Bisri, Katib `Aam PBNU Dr KH A Malik Madaniy MA, Ketua Umum PBNU Dr KH Said Aqil Siroj MA, dan Sekretaris Jenderal PBNU Dr H Marsudi Syuhud.
Ada tiga poin utama dalam surat edaran tersebut. Poin pertama, Marsudi meyatakan, siapa saja pengurus NU, baik di pusat maupun daerah, tidak boleh membawa organisasi apabila masuk tim sukses pasangan calon presiden dan calon wakil presiden.
Poin kedua, Marsudi menjelaskan, berisi imbauan ke warga NU agar menjaga dan mempererat tali persaudaraan (ukhuwwah nandliyyah) demi kelangsungan Negara Kesatuan Republik Indonesia. “PBNU juga mengimbau kepada Nandliyin untuk memperbayak istighatsah dan mujahadah, memohon ke hadirat Allah SWT agar bangsa dan negara terhindar dari berbagai gangguan dan ancaman,” ujar dia.
Poin ketiga, PBNU mengimbau seluruh Nandliyin untuk menggunakan hak pilihnya dalam Pilpres pada 9 Juli 2014 mendatang dengan cerdas, bertanggung jawab, serta sesuai dengan aqidah Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama’ah. Masyarakat juga diimbau tidak terpengaruh oleh berbagai kampanye hitam.
Sebab, kampanye hitam yang diarahkan untuk kedua pasangan capres cawapres diduga disebarkan oleh pihak-pihak yang tidak bertanggung jawab. “PBNU juga mengimbau, wajib hukumnya menghindari politik uang (risywah siyasiyyah) dalam memilih pemimpin,” kata dia.
Marsudi berharap Pilpres 2014 yang bertepatan dengan Ramadhan 1435 Hijriyah bakal berlangsung dalam suasana sejuk, aman, dan damai. Sehingga, kata dia, partisipasi warga dalam pilpres dapat dihitung sebagai bagian dari ibadah.
Ketua Umum Pengurus Besar Nandlatul Ulama (PBNU) Said Aqil Siradj menyatakan, capres tidak boleh memecah belah umat Islam, khususnya warga NU. Sebab, tujuan pilpres bersatu dalam pembangunan dan kesejahteraan.
Said Aqil menyatakan, sikap politiknya mendukung pasangan nomor urut satu, Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa merupakan keputusan pribadi. Sebab, setiap orang Islam berhak menentukan pilihannya tanpa tekanan atau arahan dari siapa pun.
Suara Nandliyin diperebutkan oleh kedua pasangan capres-cawapres, Prabowo-Hatta dan Joko Widodo-Jusuf Kalla . Tim sukses kedua pasangan pun mengajak tokoh NI bergabung. Kemarin, Jokowi berkunjung ke Pondok Pesantren Cipasung Tasikmalaya, Jawa Barat.
Ketua DPP PKB, Marwan Ja’far, meminta dukungan petinggi pesantren tersebut, KH Abun Bunyamin Ruchiyat. Marwan Ja’far menuturkan, KH AbunBunyamin Ruchiyat merupakan adik kandung mantan Rais ‘Am PBNU dan deklarator PKB, (alm) KH Ilyas Ruchiyat. Kata dia, Jokowi mau mendengar, memperjuangkan aspirak, dan menjaga tradisi Nandliyin.
Ketua DPP Gerindra, Habiburrokhman, menyatakan PrabowoHatta sudah sejak lama meminta dukungan ulama. Ulama mendukung Prabowo-Hatta karena Indonesia membutuhkan pemimpin tegas. c78 ed: ratna puspita

PBNU Claims Neutral In Presidential Election

NU members should strip off their NU attributes if engaged in campaign teams
JAKARTA – The Nahdlatul Ulama Executive Board (PBNU) issued a Circular Letter (SE) to confirm the Nahdlatul Ulama’s (NU) neutrality in the 2014 Presidential/Vice Presidential Election. Every NU organizer at the central and regional level should strip off the NU attribute if involved in campaign teams.
According to the PBNU General Secretary H Marsudi Syuhud, the SE was issued after taking the political situation ahead of the 2014 Presidential Election into consideration. “Go ahead, give support but it should be done in personal, “he said, Thursday (12/6).
SE Number 3208/C.I.33/06/2014 entitled Advice and Knowledge (Taushiyah Khashshah) for the NU members (Nandliyin) was issued on 2 June 2014. The letter was signed by four PBNU leaders: The PBNU Supreme Leader (Rais ‘Aam) Dr KH A Mustofa Bisri, the PBNU Katib `Aam [definition couldn’t be found]  Dr KH A Malik Madaniy MA, the PBNU General Chairman Dr KH Said Aqil Siroj MA, dan the PBNU General Secretary Dr H Marsudi Syuhud.
There are three main points in the SE. First point, Marsudi said, any NU organizers both in central and regional boards were prohibited to represent the organization if they joined the campaign teams of the presidential/vice presidential candidates.
Second point, Marsudi explained, contained an appeal to the NU members to maintain and strengthen the brotherhood (ukhuwah nandliyah) for the sake of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). “PBNU also calls on the Nandliyin to perform mass prayers (istighatsah/mujahadah) more often, plead to God so that the nation and state will be safe from disturbances and threats, “he said.
Third point, the PBNU called on all Nandliyin to vote in the 9 July 2014 Presidential Election smartly and responsibly in accordance with the faith of the followers of the Prophet Muhammad’s teachings and practices  (Ahlu Sunnah wal Jama’ah). The PBNU also called on people to be not influenced by any black campaigns because such campaign directed to both presidential/vice presidential candidate pairs were carried out by irresponsible parties. 
“The PBNU also called on the obligation to reject money politics (risywah siyasiyyah) in choosing a leader, “he said.
Marsudi hoped the 2014 Presidential Election which is coincided with the Muslim fasting month (Ramadhan 1435 Hijriyah), would take place in a cool, safe and peaceful atmosphere so the people’s participation in the election could be considered part of religious activities (ibadah).
According to the PBNU General Chairman Said Aqil Siradj, presidential candidates should not divide Muslims, especially the NU members because the purpose of the presidential election was the unity in the development and welfare.
Said Aqil said, his political choice of supporting Prabowo Subianto and Hatta Rajasa was a personal decision because every Muslim had the right to make his/her own choice without pressure or direction from anyone.
Prabowo-Hatta dan Joko Widodo-Jusuf Kalla, the two presidential/vice presidential candidate pairs, have been competing for the Nandliyin’s votes. Both campaign teams have been trying to persuade the NU leaders to join. Yesterday, Jokowi paid a visit to Cipasung Islamic Boarding School (Pesantren) in Tasikmalaya, West Java.
Marwan Ja’far, the chairman of the National Awakening Party (PKB) Central Executive Board (DPP), asked for the support of the pesantren leader KH Abun Bunyamin Ruchiyat. Marwan Ja’far explained KH Abun Bunyamin Ruchiyat was the younger brother of (late) KH Ilyas Ruchiyat, the PBNU Rais ‘Am and the PKB initiator. He said Jokowi always listened, fought for [the people’s] aspirations and kept the tradition of the Nadliyin.
According to Habiburrokhman, the chairman of the Great Indonesia Movement DPP, Prabowo-Hatta had been asking for the ulemas’ supports for a long time. [He claimed that ] the ulemas supported Prabowo-Hatta because Indonesia needed a firm leader. c78 ed: ratna puspita
