In recent years more and more emerging efforts made by a handful of groups to replace the existence of Pancasila as the basis of the State and the foundation of life nation and state in Indonesia. The question that arises is whether the ideology of Pancasila is irrelevant in the era of globalization and democratization that is almost unlimited or indeed Pancasila is considered a system that is not able to regulate and solve all the problems of life of nation and state of Indonesian society which is more democratic and freer in various aspects of life.
In fact, Pancasila as the basis of ideology and national identity for the life of nation and state in Indonesia recognized by the whole world, as more and more lost its relevance. The paradigm has been contaminated that Pancasila was used as a political tool of President Soeharto’s regime policy. On the basis of the paradigm, the existence of Pancasila as the foundation of the State of Indonesia began to destabilize through political liberalization by trying to eliminate the position, function and implementation of Pancasila as the basis of the State.
The situation is increasingly opening up opportunities for the adoption of other ideological principles, not least religious-based ideology to influence the dynamics of national and state life of the Indonesian people, whose purpose is to make Pancasila no longer a common platform in social life Politics of Indonesian society.
Indonesia is currently threatened by two transnational ideologies, which are operating in a structured, systematic and massive way, the ideology of neoliberalism and religious fundamentalism. The tendency of coercive war effort of transnational ideological doctrine to undermine the central position of Pancasila as the basis of the State is also intensified by groups Voicing the enforcement of the Khilafah Islamiyah and wishing to replace the ideology of Pancasila with the Khilafah system which is considered as a single system given by Allah SWT to expel the Indonesian nation from various problems that struck.
Pancasila democracy system that has united Nusantarat not recognized and even considered the product of the Thogut because as a bearer of problems in the life of Indonesian society. The ideological war carried out tended to illustrate the failure of the Pancasila democratic system in bringing about changes to the socio-economic life of society. The enforcement of the Khilafah is an indispensable obligation, since the Khilafah is considered the sole solution to problematics not only in Indonesia but in the world.
However, it seems that the efforts of these groups do not necessarily gain the support of all Indonesians. Even without the exclusion of individual monotheistic values, the dominant majority of Indonesians do not accept the enforced notion of enforced Khilafah accompanied by illustrations of the failure of the Indonesian Government to implement the Pancasila democratic system. The community’s refusal to replace Pancasila ideology with the Khilafah system has grounded Pancasila on the earth of Ibu Pertiwi Nusantara. Nevertheless, the efforts of the doctrination of the enforcement of the Islamic Caliphate in Indonesia will continue to be echoed by the group utilizing the beginning of the decline in understanding and elaboration of the noble values contained in Pancasila, especially among the younger generation.
Pancasila and Islam are basically nothing to the contrary. Even the Nine Committee that is tasked to formulate the basis of the State of Indonesia contained in the 1945 Constitution namely Soekarno, Drs. Moh. Hatta, Mr. Achmad Soebardjo, Mr. Moh. Yamin, KH. Wahid Hasyim, H. Agus Salim, Abdoel Kahar Moezakir, Abikoesno Tjokrosoejoso, Mr. Alexander Andries Maramis has collaborated on the thought between the obligations of Godly values and the social order of society. That’s what makes the Indonesian nation has identity and reflects the face of indigenous archipelago.
Chairman of Central MUI, KH. Ma’ruf Amin said the Khilafah is not suitable in Indonesia because the pillars of Indonesian nationality have been agreed in the form of republic, so no need to talk Khalifah. Chairman of the MUI asserted that the Indonesian figures of any mahzab have agreed on the current system of Pancasila democracy. The emergence of a new system will precipitate a new upheaval.
Therefore, the position of Pancasila which has entered the “WASPADA” radar for the future of Indonesia needs to be immediately anticipated and the joints of the unifying force for the life of the state and the nation of Indonesia should be more integrated. Fragmentation of the political elite that hinders the emergence of national leadership should be immediately eliminated and returned to the noble values of Pancasila. We need to convince the people that Pancasila is a “single principle” in the life of nation and state in Indonesia.
The agreement of the eight highest and highest state institutions on May 25, 2013 in the Constitutional Court Building namely the President, MPR, DPR, DPD, MA, BPK, MK and KY to take national action in the effort of socialization and strengthening of Pancasila as the basic ideology of the State should be improved. Four important and agreed strategic things are (1) a commitment to actively take responsibility in order to strengthen Pancasila as the basic ideology of the country according to their respective roles, positions and authorities. (2) Pancasila must be an ideology and inspiration to build the life of a harmonious and harmonious nation and state, away from the behavior of prioritizing the interests of groups or groups. (3) Pancasila, 1945 Constitution, Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, and NKRI as the four pillars of national life must be implemented in a real way. (4) need a national action plan by an institution to socialize and strengthen Pancasila values formally through Pancasila education and constitution.
Rejuvenation or Returns Spirits
Pancasila Rejuvenationis an attempt to restore the spirit of Pancasila as conceptualized and aspired to the founding fathers of Pancasila no longer be used as a political tool, but Pancasila is intended to achieve the public. Pancasila rejuvenation can begin to make Pancasila back as public discourse, public discourse. With the public discourse, as well as to do reassessment, revaluation of Pancasila meaning over the years, to then generate new ideas and meanings. Thus, the Pancasila as the public discourse is crucial to the early stages of development as ideology Pancasila open back, which can be interpreted simultaneously, so that it remains relevant in the life of the nation and state of Indonesia.
