Gedung Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) ( - Yogyakarta - Indonesian Ulema Council of Yogyakarta Special Region hopes that the list of 200 mubalig or lecturer released by the Ministry of Religious Affairs needs to be addressed fairly because as an effort the government gives an example of standard preacher.

"With an example of 200 mubaligs it actually looks standard what the government really wants, I think it is natural," said Vice Chairman of Yogyakarta Special Council (DIY) Abdul Malik Madani in Yogyakarta, Tuesday (29/5/2018 )

According to him, the launch of the list of 200 preachers by the Ministry of Religious Affairs does not need to be over-argued because it is unlikely that 200 names can reach all the needs of the public will lecturer throughout Indonesia so it is quite regarded as an example of a standard preacher.

He realized the launch of the list of speakers sparked a variety of reactions because many of the preachers or speakers who were socially acceptable were not included in the list.

"But if all the lecturers are put on the list, of course there are hundreds of thousands of them, so not necessarily those that do not belong to the 200 names are then considered unsuitable," he said.

As the number of speakers who delivered their da'wah material with various methods, according to him, is needed a reference or standard from Kemenag. The standard, for example, must master the science of religion strongly, have national insight, and have the full loyalty of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI).

"I think that now there are many speakers who are not soothing and in fact making a split, the dakwah is also filled with hate speeches, which I think should be given an example," he said.

Nevertheless, he hopes Kemenag remains committed to seeking ideal formulation and perfecting the list of recommended preacher names so as not to spark a long debate among the public. "I think there is a commitment from the Ministry of Religious Affairs to improve it," he said. (Ant)
