RRI World Service -Voice of Indonesia with Today In History, a regular segment which brings back people and events from this date in the past as recorded in history.

I’ll start with May 20, 1908;the first National Awakening Day of Indonesia.

Every May 20, the Indonesian people commemorate National Awakening Day. The day, that became the momentum of the struggle of all Indonesian people, was marked by the birth of Budi Oetomo organization in 1908. The establishment of Budi Oetomo was the beginning of a movement aimed at achieving the independence of Indonesia. Judging from the history of the establishment of Budi Oetomo,  founded by educated young people, it is fitting for the people of Indonesia,`to have the same spirit for the resurrection of Indonesia to progress. Live along with the development of science and technology.

 

Next is from 20 May 2002; Timor-Leste becomes independent from Indonesia.

The Democratic Republic of East Timor,  which before independence was named East Timor, is a small country to the north of Australia and the eastern part of the Indonesian  island of Timor. In addition, the country's territory also includes Kambing  or Atauro island, Jaco, and the Oecussi-Ambeno enclave in West Timor. East Timor was once one of Indonesia's provinces. It was  officially independent on 20 May 2002. When it became a member of the United Nations, the country decided to use the Portuguese name "Timor Leste" as the official name of their country.

 

I’ll end Today in History with  May 20, 2008; Ali Sadikin dies.

Ali Sadikin, the former Jakarta governor, also known as Bang Ali, died at the age of 82 years, on Tuesday, May 20, 2008.

Ali Sadikin is well known for developing   the city of Jakarta. He received the honor of Bintang Mahaputera Adipradana because he was considered meritorious to the country and the nation, especially for turning  Jakarta into a Metropolitan City. President Soekarno appointed him Governor of Jakarta in the 60s because he was  considered as “stubborn. He succeeded as a leader and in developing   the city of Jakarta precisely because of his harsh nature.

Headlines

Here are  the Headlines of several national newspapers published today, May 20.

I’ll  begin with Kompas’s  headline , “Complicated Process leads Indonesian Migrant Workers to Brokers”

Indonesian Migrant Worker (TKI) candidates are yet to be free from high charges for their departure. Complicated departure arrangement system has brought TKI into the  hands of  brokers. According to Kompas’ investigation that lasted  for two weeks, many TKI candidates in Indramayu and some other regions had the same  experience. Even just to obtain passports, they were trapped by brokers.

To have a government subsidized passport, a TKI candidate who legally  needs just to pay Rp 55,000 had to  pay Rp 500 thousand because of the brokers. They used the canteen behind the Indramayu One Stop Integrated Service to arrange the TKI documents that must be attached as requirement for passport issuance.

Let’s  move on to Media Indonesia with its headline, “Moderation in thinking as a key to Deradicalization”.

Terrorism in Indonesia is  caused  among others by an ideology spread by the leaders of terrorist network to create an Islamic sharia-based nation. Former terrorist convict Yudi Zulfachri in Jakarta, Saturday said, terrorist leaders generally planted thought that whoever opposing their principle must be called as kafir and thogut or infidels; and is allowed to be killed.

This is the underlying thought  of  the terrorist attack against fellow Indonesian citizens in various regions. To overcome terrorism, according to Yudi, the key is moderating  the minds of terrorists. That is the true essence of deradicalization.

I’ll end  the Headlines with Republika’s, “Indonesia Asks OIC to unite and  Support Palestine ”.

Indonesia asked Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member countries to unite and help the Palestine. According to Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla, the common view among OIC members needs to be improved. Jusuf Kalla, after OIC Extraordinary Summit at Istanbul Conference Center on Friday (18/5) said, OIC must be the main driver of support for Palestine.

Jusuf Kalla also urged the Hamas and Fatah groups to unite. The unity of the two groups is instrumental in creating peace in Palestine.

Today in History over RRI World Service, Voice of Indonesia. We start from an event on May 17, 1950 when association of Indonesian publisher was established.

Association of Indonesian publisher was established on May 17, 1950 in Jakarta on initiative and agreement of some national publishers at that time. In additional to encouragement to replace foreign publishers’ position, especially the Dutch which still monopolized book publishing activities in the country, the establishment of Association of Indonesian publisher was also imbued with great desire to help the government in establishing brilliant Indonesian people. When the establishment of the association only consisted of 13 publishers, now the number of its members has reached around 650 publishers throughout Indonesia. According to the history, the association of Indonesian publisher  still exists as the only one book publisher organization which is able to fight and to serve various concerns of its members.

The next event is that in 1980, national library was established.

Indonesian National Library is located in Jakarta. It has a duty to store state’s data and information. The library is also one of government’s agencies’ non-department which is under and responsible to the president. Earlier, the library was one of the realizations of the implementation and development of the national system of the library as a whole and integrated since it was planned its establishment on May 17, 1980 by the then Minister of Education and Culture, Daoed Joesoef. The agency is the result of integration of the four major libraries in Jakarta.

And the last event is about National Book Day.

Determination of May 17 as National Book Day was the initiative of education minister of mutual cooperation cabinet, Abdul Malik Fadjar since 2002. The decision of National Book Day is hoped to be able to encourage reading interest of Indonesian people, as well as to increase book’s sales. The date was chosen based on the date of the establishment of Indonesian National Library on May 7, 1980. The commemoration of Book Day is often related to reading interest in Indonesia which is still low. From study data of 'Most Literate Nation in the World' which has been released by Central Connecticut State University in 2016, Indonesia ranked in the 60th from 61 countries. The position was under Thailand and above Bostwana. To grow love of book reading becomes challenge for every individual. However, National Book Day commemoration is able to give positive impact in making people aware about the importance of the book. Even, to enliven the day, some institutions such as National Library holds event and activities aiming to invite people to visit the library.
