History of the Founding of IMM Muhammadiyah Student Association
History of the Establishment of IMM (Muhammadiyah Student Association)
History of the Establishment of the Muhammadiyah Student Association The Muhammadiyah Student Association is part of the AMM (Muhammadiyah Youth Generation) which is an autonomous organization under Muhammadiyah.
In fact there are two integral factors that underlie the birth of the Muhammadiyah Student Association, namely internal factors and extreme factors. Internal factors are meant to be factors contained within Muhammadiyah itself, while external factors are factors originating from outside Muhammadiyah, especially Muslims in Indonesia and in general what is happening in Indonesia.
Internal factors are actually more dominant in the form of idealism motivation, namely the motive to develop Muhammadiyah ideology, namely the ideology and ideals of Muhammadiyah. As we know that Muhammadiyah is essentially an organizational platform that has ideals or goals, namely upholding and upholding the Islamic religion, so that the main, just and prosperous society is realized which is blessed by Allah SWT. This is stated in AD Muhammadiyah Chapter II article 3. In reflecting on this aspiration, Muhammadiyah inevitably has to intersect with the common people or heterogeneous society. There are farming communities, traders, animal husbandry and labor-intensive communities and there are administrative communities and so on which also include campus or intellectual communities, namely the Student Society.
The contact of Muhammadiyah in its aims and objectives, especially towards the student community, technically does not involve directly preaching and influencing students, which means student people, especially the preachers who directly work with students. But in this case, Muhammadiyah uses an effective technique, namely by providing something that allows students to attract interest or sympathy to use the facilities that have been prepared.
Initially, Muhammadiyah considered students who joined or followed Muhammadiyah's footsteps to simply join the autonomous organizations within Muhammadiyah, such as Muhammadiyah Youth (PM) which was intended for students and Nasyi'atul Aisyiyah (NA) for students born on 27 Dzulhijjah 1349 H and Youth on the 25th of Dzulhiijjah 1350 H.
This view of Muhammadiyah was born at the time when Muhammadiyah was holding its 25th congress in Jakarta in 1936. KH. Hisham (period 1933-1937). And it is said that the assumptions and thoughts regarding the need to gather students who are in the same direction as Muhammadiyah, namely since the 25th congress.
However, the desire to gather and foster Muhammadiyah students at that time was still a vacuum, because at that time Muhammadiyah still did not have the Higher Education that it wanted so that the students who were in other Universities both public and private that existed at that time were ideologically fixed. told Muhammadiyah that in a fixed condition they had to agree to join PM, NA or Hizbul Wathon (HW). In the development of their existence in the three autonomous organizations, they feel the need for a special student association whose members consist specifically of Islamic students. The alternative they chose was to join the Islamic Student Association (HMI).
At that time Muhammadiyah institutionally took part in managing HMI both from a moral and material perspective, until recently according to data available at PP Muhammadiyah it was stated that Muhammadiyah (especially PTM and Social Hospital) materially contributed to finance almost every activity of HMI, starting from the level congress to daily activities. This is where once again it's not HMI that helped bring forth Muhammadiyah figures but on the contrary it was Muhammadiyah that used to actively participate in raising HMI. Why was it done? The answer is as stated above, namely that HMI is expected to remain consistent with the religious understanding inspired by Muhammadiyah. However, during its development, it experienced changes, especially in the independence desired by Muhammadiyah by Muhammadiyah, which tended to be liberal in all the currents in Islamic theology, which may color the body of HMI, Asy'ariyah sects (tend to revive the sunnahs of the Prophet), sects syi'ah (who tend to cult Shaydina Ali bin Abi Tholib ra), Mu'tazilah, nationalism, secularism, other pluralism. While in Muhammadiyah the independence of Muhammadiyah is not emphasized on opinion but still in the context of Islamic discourse it still adheres to the ideology of Al-Quran and As-Sunnah in Muhammadiyah does not recognize existing schools of thought such as the schools of Shafi`i, Hambali and Maliki. ariyah (tend to revive the sunnahs of the Prophet), Shi'a sects (which tend to cult Shaydina Ali bin Abi Tholib ra), Mu'tazilah, nationalism, secularism, pluralism and others. While in Muhammadiyah the independence of Muhammadiyah is not emphasized on opinion but still in the context of Islamic discourse it still adheres to the Al-Quran and As-Sunnah ideology in Muhammadiyah does not recognize existing schools of thought such as the schools of Shafi`i, Hambali and Maliki. ariyah (tend to revive the sunnahs of the Prophet), Shi'a sects (which tend to cult Shaydina Ali bin Abi Tholib ra), Mu'tazilah, nationalism, secularism, pluralism and others. While in Muhammadiyah the independence of Muhammadiyah is not emphasized on opinion but still in the context of Islamic discourse it still adheres to the Al-Quran and As-Sunnah ideology in Muhammadiyah does not recognize existing schools of thought such as the schools of Shafi`i, Hambali and Maliki.
Seeing the phenomenon above, HMI is increasingly moving towards this ideology, so with diplomacy the PP Muhammadiyah issued a policy or policies that saved Muhammadiyah cadres who were still at the secondary or higher education level.
On November 18, 1955 Muhammadiyah wanted to establish this PTM, PP Muhammadiyah through its leadership structure formed a student and student department that accommodated the active aspirations of students and students.
So at the time of the first Muhammadiyah Youth Conference in Palembang in 1956 in its decision it determined the future steps of the Muhammadiyah Youth in 1956-1959 and in this step an effort was also made to gather Muhammadiyah students so that one day they would become Muhammadiyah youths or Muhammadiyah members who were able to carry out the mandate.
To further realize the efforts of PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah, through KOPMA (Muhammadiyah Regional Leadership Conference) throughout Indonesia on 5 Shafar 1381/18 July 1962 in Surakarta, it was decided to establish IPM (Muhammadiyah Student Association). PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah at the time of KONPIDA still had not succeeded in creating a special organization for Muhammadiyah students. At that time fate was allowed to sit on the management of IPM.
In connection with the growing PTM which was pioneered by the Faculty of Law and Philosophy in Padang Panjang which was established on November 18, 1955 but because of the PRRI rebellion the two faculties were vacuumed, then established in Jakarta PT Education teacher which later changed its name to IKIP. In 1958 a similar faculty was pioneered in Surakarta, in Yogyakarta the Tabligh Muhammadiyah academy was established and in Jakarta the FIS (Faculty of Social Sciences) was also established which is now UMJ. Due to the development of existing PTMs, in the 1960s the ideas to deal specifically with Muhammadiyah students became stronger.
PP Muhammadiyah Youth which was assigned by PP Muhammadiyah and the 1st Conference in Palembang (1956) to accommodate the active aspirations of Muhammadiyah students, immediately formed a Study Group specifically for students from Malang, Yogyakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Padang, Ujung Pandang and Jakarta. Towards the half-century Muktamar Muhammadiyah in Jakarta in 1962 a Muhammadiyah Student Congress was held in Yogyakarta and from this congress the efforts of Youth leaders became increasingly widespread to release the Department of Student Affairs to stand on its own. On December 15, 1963, pejajagan was started with the establishment of student Da'wah which was coordinated by: Ir. Margono, Dr. Sudibjo Markoes and Drs. Rosyad Saleh. The idea for this formation came from Drs. Moh. Djazman who at that time was the Secretary of PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah. And in the meantime the pressure to immediately form a special student organization from various cities such as Jakarta with Nurwijo Sarjono MZ. Suherman, M. Yasin, Sutrisno Muhdam, PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah and others.
Finally, with the blessing of PP Muhammadiyah at that time chaired by HA Badawi, with great wisdom and wisdom established a special organization for Muhammadiyah students chaired by Drs. Moh. Djazman as coordinator with members M. Husni Thamrin, A. Rosyad Saleh, Soedibjo Markoes, Moh. Arief etc.
So the Founder of the Muhammadiyah Student Association and the originator of the name IMM is Drs. Moh. Djazman Al-Kindi who is also the coordinator and at the same time the first chairman. The first IMM Congress on 1-5 May 1965 in the city of West, Solo by producing the declaration belowIMM is the Islamic Student movement
The personality of Muhammadiyah is the cornerstone of IMM's struggle
The function of IMM is as an exponent of students in Muhammadiyah (as a stabilizer and dynamist).
Knowledge is amaliah and charity is IMM Scientific.
IMM is a legal organization that complies with all applicable laws, statutes, regulations and state philosophies.
IMM's charity is carried out and dedicated to the interests of religion, homeland and nation.
Furthermore, which also includes internal factors in giving birth to IMM, there is ethical motivation among the Muhammadiyah family. In an effort to realize the aims and objectives of Muhammadiyah, both structurally and externally and sympathizers, both upper, middle and lower economic class, must be able to understand and know Muhammadiyah in general or specifically so that radical Muhammadiyah cadres (narrow-minded) do not appear. This affirmation of ethical motivation is actually an interpretation (understanding) of the word of Allah SWT. in QS. Al-Imran: 104 and it is hoped that Muhammadiyah cadres, especially IMM, can realize ethical motivation, including by carrying out da'wah amar ma`ruf nahi munkar, Fastabiqul Khoirot (competition in virtue & for good).
External Factors, namely as mentioned above both what happened within the Muslim community itself or what happened in the history of the upheaval of the Indonesian nation, what happened in Indonesian society in ancient times until now is the same, that is, most of them still prioritize ancestral culture which reflects sectarian activities and even anemism that is contrary to pure Islamic teachings in particular and is no longer in accordance with the times. This kind of thing gives rise to such a large significance (bias), especially among students who have academic freedom and should have a distant mindset, but because of the cultural impact of such a down-to-earth society, they will become old-fashioned and experience decline.
The upheaval of the OKP (Youth Community Organization) or Student Organization period of the 50s to 65s seemed to have reached a stalemate to maintain their independence and active participation in the post-proclamation (independence era) of Indonesia. this was seen since after the Indonesian Student Congress on July 8 1947 in Malang, East Java, which consisted of HMI, PMKRI, PMU, PMY, PMJ, PMKH, MMM, SMI, which then merged (joined) to become PPMI (Association of Student Associations). Indonesia). At first PPMI seemed to be united in fostering unity among students, but since PPMI accepted a new member in 1958, namely CGMI which was oriented and was a child of communism, PPMI finally experienced a split that brought destruction. PPMI officially disbanded in October 1965.
In fact, before disbanding PPMI, around 1964-1965 each of the organizations that merged into PPMI competed with each other and were self-revolutionary to seize the influence of the rulers at that time, including Bung Karno, who did not escape their target. This was due to the entry of CGMI into PPMI which seemed to gain legitimacy from the authorities at that time so that CGMI (PKI) looked big. At that time, HMI was also revolutionizing itself to become the target of CGMI (PKI), so that HMI was almost fragile due to its own actions, because at that time the PKI was the largest party and its supporters were always shouting for HMI to be disbanded. HMI sees that his condition is vulnerable and does not remain silent, with all efforts to develop wings and strengthen them,
It was at a time when HMI was getting pushed back that IMM was born, namely on March 14, 1964. This is why, there was a stereotype or perception that surfaced that IMM was born as a shelter for HMI members when HMI was disbanded by the PKI, then IMM did not need to be born. However, this distorted perception is irrational and less intelligent in interpreting historical facts and data.
The correct and rational interpretation according to historical data and facts is that IMM, one of the historical factors, is to help the existence of HMI so that it does not work against attempts to dissolve it. Once again, IMM was born to help and participate in defending HMI from communist attempts, namely the PKI, which will disband it and in accordance with the nature of IMM itself, which will always cooperate and help each other with their brothers (sisters of faith in Islam) in an effort to be amar ma'ruf nahi mmunkar Which is the principle of IMM's struggle.
That is a glimpse of the birth of IMM, of which even now there are people who question it (although a book has been published which counters this issue with the title 'The Birth in Question by Farid Fatoni). And now we know that IMM was born to become a necessity for Muhammadiyah in developing its missionary wings and at the same time it is a national asset to actively participate in this independence.
Because IMM is an internal and external need, the PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah figures who started from HMI returned to IMM as Muhammadiyah children or orthomas. Those who previously participated in developing HMI were because IMM had not yet been born and their involvement in HMI was only limited to developing a Muhammadiyah ideology. And even now HMI is still joined by students from various elements of Islamic organizations, which in the end are different from Muhammadiyah's orientation. Perhaps, to ward off claims like those of PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah above, it is that activists for the establishment of IMM & NA who are trying to seek the establishment of IMM are not directly or indirectly involved in HMI activities.
THE HISTORY OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE MUHAMMADIYAH STUDENT ASSOCIATION
After we have traced the history of the birth of the Muhammadiyah Student Association (IMM), it is time for us to discuss the history of its development. For this purpose, and in order to be more systematic in its disclosure, below will discuss the development of IMM from Conference to Conference, Namely Conferences I, II, II, IV, V and so on.
IMM congress I
The 1st Muktamar Muhammadiyah Student Association (IMM), better known in the history of IMM, namely the National Deliberation (Munas). For the first time after IMM was officially approved by PP Muhammadiyah and even by the 1st President of the Republic of Indonesia, Bung Karno, IMM held the I National Conference, namely on 1-5 May 1965 in Solo. It was this 1st IMM Congress that gave birth to the 1965 West City (Solo) declaration and the composition of the Personnel Board of the Central Leadership Council of the Muhammadiyah Student Association (IMM) whose contents of the declaration and personnel structure were listed in the foundation of the movement.
One thing that should be noted, namely at the time of the declaration or during the 1st IMM Conference, the situation of the nation and student organizations was in an unsteady state, staggering, because of the smoke from the city of Madiun which was rebelled by the PKI around 1948 (after independence). until 1965. PKI rebellions occurred everywhere, it was immediately recorded in history that Central Java was a PKI base. The years 1963-1965 were the heyday of the PKI, and it was during these times that IMM rose, namely in the midst of the heyday of the PKI, and in mid-1965, or to be exact, 1-5 May 1965, IMM held the First Conference, while the PKI was everywhere plotting a strategy to seize the power of the Republic of Indonesia which culminated on September 30, 1965, which is now known as the September 30 movement (G 30 S PKI) which kidnapped 7 generals. Historically, the presence of the 1st IMM National Conference (National Conference) was the right political step to instill a fighting spirit to defend Indonesian independence while at the same time increasing the strength of student organizations including HMI.
Also historically-politically, at the time of the birth of IMM in 1964, the birth of IMM was included in this political review, which was aimed at strengthening the ranks of the MMI (Indonesian Student Council) which was born in 1962 where Drs. Lukman Harun as deputy secretary general. But at the 1964 MMI congress, which was originally intended to still be able to strengthen student organizations, it failed. The PKI in this regard seems to be still strong and the birth of the MMI has not been able to keep up with the strength of the PKI in the end with full organizational dialectics which cannot be separated from the good intentions of stopping the PKI movement.
Still in the situation leading up to the IMM IMM National Conference, around January 1965 to be precise on January 13, 1965, the PKI's accomplices had attacked the PII (Indonesian Islamic Students) who at that time were carrying out Mentara (mental training) in a Kanigoro village ( East Java). With the ferocious attack on the Mentra PII program in the jami' mosque arena, namely when the participants were carrying out the dawn lecture. The PKI came armed and destroyed everything around it, then this incident was broadcast and disturbed the faith of the Muslims. On February 1, 1965 the Muslims in East Java began to take action. In Central Java, West Java, DKI and the surrounding areas also took part in protest actions against the behavior of the PKI.
IMM leaders from the National Conference I who were entrusted with leading IMM for the 1965-1968 period, in carrying out their work programs always had to deal with CGMI (Concentration of the Indonesian Student Movement). Indonesian Student Youth Association (IPPI), People's Youth and others who are PKI organs. The PKI organs, which always interfered with the activities of youth organizations and Islamic students, including the IMM, always shouted "disband HMI" and so on. This actually did not diminish the IMM movement. Muhammadiyah youth, organizationally as IMM's older sibling, always took IMM to advance to the field of crushing the PKI to defend HMI and the nation based on Pancasila and tried to approach Bung Karno, who was increasingly being pressured into being persuaded and slandered by the PKI.
On Thursday, September 30, 1965 – which was the night of the G30 S PKI uprising at around 8:00 p.m. – IMM members and leaders who were in Jakarta also listened to a lecture delivered by Army Chief of Staff General AH Nasution in front of the Youth Cadre Training participants. Muhammadiyah Jakarta which is located at Kompol UMJ Jl. Limau, South Jakarta (now the UHAMKA campus). Later in the morning, after hearing the news of the kidnapping of 7 generals (including Pak Nasution who thank God he escaped) or the G 30 S PKI, the Muhammadiyah Student Association (IMM) which had also joined GENUIS and had taken action to defend HMI on 11 September 1965 and 13 september 1965, quickly communicated with Muhammadiyah Youth figures at the suggestion of PP Muhammadiyah in Jakarta and then gathered in the same place. Drs. Lukman Harun who at that time was chairman of PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah gave a briefing, as did HS projokusumo, Sutrisno Muhdam, Suwardi, Sam'ani, Sumarsono, Djalal Sayuti, Drs. Habian HS, H. Suyitno, it was they who then held a closed meeting in the Chancellor's room at Muhammadiyah University which later resulted in the formation of KOKAM (Muhammadiyah Alert and Preparedness Command), Sumarsono and Sutrisno Muhdam were members of the IMM DPP.
It was in KOKAM that IMM played an important role, as an ortom Muhammadiyah whose members consisted of militant students who were always on the move and in motion protest actions against the PKI, demanding the dissolution of the PKI. And it was also through this KOKAM that IMM could work together with elements of the TNI and ABRI who were anti-PKI.
On Monday 4 October 1965 the Muhammadiyah Student Association (IMM) took part in the formation of KAP GESTAPU (Unified Action Penggayangan Counter Revolution G. 30 S. PKI), which was later joined by other actions, KAMI (Indonesian Student Action Union), KAPPI (Indonesian Youth and Student Action Union) IMM also took part in Immawan Saiful Alam including the signing of the Solidarity of Determination, the essence of which included: "Condemns in the strongest possible terms against acts of terror and the kidnapping of the generals. Urge Bung Karno as president to dissolve the PKI and its accomplices and mass organizations that are sympathetic to the G. 30 S PKI…”
Congress of IMM IV
The mandate of the IMM III conference in Yogyakarta which took place on 14-17 March 1971 in Yogyakarta that the IV IMM conference would be held in Medan or Jakarta. Previously it had been decided by Tanwir IV, namely Medan (SUMUT). Then due to considerations of integration among AMM cq Muhammadiyah Youth, the IMM DPP decided to move the place of the IMM Conference from Medan - Malang (East Java). However, after consulting with PP Pemuda Muhammadiyah and OC Muktamar it was finally decided to place the IMM IV Conference, namely in Semarang (Central Java) on Date 18-22 Djulhijjah 1395 H/21-25 December 1975 AD in conjunction with the 6th Muhammadiyah Youth Conference.
In the IV Congress, apart from compiling the IMM DPP personnel for the 1975-1978 period, which was chaired by Drs. Zulkibar and M. Alfian Darmawan (Secretary General) have also issued a declaration which in the historical development of IMM defeated the popularity of the IMM DPP while displacing the Muktamar product program which was issued with Decree No.002/A-1/76 dated 8 Syafar 1396 H./8 February 1976.
The Declaration of the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque in Semarang was signed by 36 people, 17 of the early generations and 19 of the next generations. The 17 early generations, namely: Drs. H Moh. Djazman, dr. Sudibyo Markus Drs. H Rosyad Saleh, Dr. Moh Arief, Drs. Syamsu Udaya Nurdin, Drs. Zulkabir, Drs. H. Sutrisno Muhdam, H. Nurwijoyo Sarjono, Drs Basri Tambuh, Drs. Fathurrahman HM. Sumarwan, Bsw, Ali Kyai Demak, SH, Drs. M. Husni Tamrin, M. Susanto BA, Dra. Siti Romlah, and dr. Deddy Abubakar. Meanwhile, the 19 generations of Successors, namely representatives of DPD IMM throughout Indonesia who attended the IMM IV Conference, which means that automatically the declaration is the determination of IMM Leaders and members throughout Indonesia. They are: Hindun Rosidi (Aceh), M. Jaginduang dalimunthe (North Sumatra) Agus Aman (Riau) Bazar Abas (West Sumatra) A. Roni Umar ( Jambi ) Fauzi Fatah ( Lampung ) Rafles ( DKI Jakarta ) Anda Suahanda ( Bandung/West Java ) Ahmad Sukarjo ( Central Java ) Tufik Dahlan ( DIY Yogjakarta ) Ishak Soleh ( West Kalimantan / Pontianak ) Mahrani Said ( South Kalimantan ) M. Nurdin HS.(Samarinda/East Kalimantan) M.Yasin Ahmad (Suselra/Ujung Pandang) M.Yunus Hamid(Central Sulawesi) M.NurAbdullah (NTB/NTP) Joko Santoso (Malang/East Java) A. Muiz ZA (DPP IMM Period 1971 -1974) and Mahnun Husein (DPP IMM 1971-1974).
The Central Leadership Council of the Muhammadiyah Student Association for the IV Muktamar Period or the 1975-1978 period) in the implementation of the program resulting from the Muktamar which had been declared through decree No.002/A-1/1976 8 February 1976. Not doing much activity at the national level. However, one piece of reliable information is that the DPP IMM for the period 1975-1978 has proposed to the Indonesian government that in carrying out nurseries for the younger generation and students it is necessary to have an assistant to the President, namely a minister in charge of dealing with youth, which eventually was born in the composition of Development Cabinet III dr. . Abdul Gafur as Menpora and Ir. Akbar Tanjung for Development Cabinet IV (1988-1993) it is said, the presence of this youth minister was one of the proposals from the IMM DPP period 1975-1978 chaired by Drs. Zulkabir.
Then, in relation to the development of ties at and or through the IMM IV Conference in Semarang, it has been recommended to shift the IMM organizing principle from the territorial principle to the potential principle. This shift according to the bond activity pattern is intended so that IMM is always oriented towards Muhammadiyah's areas of movement. And the basic needs of students. If now we have full confidence that the commissariat is the lowest institution in the bond leadership level, is the basis of activity, then by shifting this principle it means that the position of the commissariat and or group is seen as important and decisive. A program like this is actually the result of the formulation of the IMM IV Conference. And with this, there was indeed an effort to expand IMM through its recommendation to PP Muhammadiyah.
On the basis of recommendations from Muktamar IV IMM to Muhammadiyah regarding the development of the IMM, Muhammadiyah in this case the Council for Teaching and Culture Education (now this assembly is split into two; the Diktilitbang Council and the Education and Culture Council) has issued instructions regarding the development of Muhammadiyah tertiary students. which is also a recommendation from the results of the workshop, namely by letter number: E.1/234/1978 dated 31 October 1978 number: E.1/001/79 dated 2 January 1979 and number E.3/014/1979 dated 6 January 1979.
In addition, the DPP IMM for the Zulkabir period, which actually had to end in 1978 or the end of 1979 (at the latest), apparently still felt that there was not enough time to carry out the mandate of the results of the IMM III and IV Conferences. In 1979, instead of the IMM V Conference being held, but precisely regarding Tanwir V which was held in Jakarta, one of the decisions of which would be convened in October 1979. And this Tanwir V was actually an insistence from the DPD IMM DKI Jakarta which at that time was the General Chairperson Drs . M. Yunan Yusuf. And even in the IMM V Tanwir in Jakarta in 1979 there was a recommendation for Muhammadiyah and for the DPP itself to immediately carry out the IMM V Conference.
Until a few years later the DPP IMM for the 1975-1978 period was unable to hold a follow-up (5th) Conference. The IMM DPP personnel this period were scattered, some were in Yogya, Solo, Bandung and Jakarta, and others resulted in communication between DPP members becoming tenuous and even cutting off. Which in turn created an IMM vacuum at the national level. DPD IMM DKI Jakarta on 14-15 March 1981 held Musyda V and it was in this Musyda that it was voiced and even urged that DPP IMM for the 1975-1978 period immediately carry out the Muktamar's mandate.
It seemed that the DPP IMM did not really hear the voice of the IMM DKI Jaya Musyda, so on June 3, 1982 the alumni of IMM DKI Jaya, Drs. H. Rustan SA, M. Rusaini Rusin, SH, Drs. E. Kusnadi, Sudirman Arif, Drs. Husni Thoyar, Drs. Hadjid Dharnawidagda, MP, Drs. Yudi Ruspandi, Drs. A.Beli, Drs. Abdul Muis, ZA, Drs. HM Yusuf Muchtar, Drs. Salman Harun (now Doctor), Drs. Sadimin, Drs. M. Yunan Yusuf, Drs. Muh. Isa Anwari Bah, and Firdaus Jamain, have signed a letter of appeal to PP. Muhammadiyah to intervene and immediately carry out the IMM V Congress, and this letter is copied to all PWM throughout Indonesia, but also… the Conference has still not been held. In 1984 the DPD IMM DKI Jakarta took the initiative to form the character of the IMM DPP, whose goal was to lead IMM to immediately carry out the Mukatamar,
Returning to the problem that, in an objective assessment, actually the IMM DPP since the 1975-1978/1979 period there was a vacancy, or since then IMM did not have its IMM DPP. IMM, during the period of Drs. HM. Djasman and Drs. HA. Rosyad Soleh, who has convincing national potential, was almost drowned due to the absence of the IMM DPP since 1979. However, the vacancy of the IMM DPP actually did not affect IMM's activities in every region and branch, even though the IMM DPP did not exist. But IMM members don't care. IMM's identity turned out to be so attached to IMM, in the regions and branches, IMM was still growing and even more fertile. IMM at this time is like a large, shady tree which is then attacked by a long drought which sheds its leaves but its roots are increasingly breaking into the bowels of the earth.
The condition of the IMM DPP, which harbored a lot of true stories, gradually became heard by PP Muhammadiyah, one thing that was very profitable for IMM, namely that there were many former members of the Central Executive at that time, such as Drs. Muh. Djasman, Drs. Sutrisno Muhdam, Drs. A. Rosyad Saleh, Drs. Abu Sri Dimyati, etc. Meanwhile, Mr HS. At that time, Prodjokusumo himself, as the Chairman of PP Muhammadiyah Mapendapu, felt compelled, so his enthusiasm finally came out to write about IMM, which almost screamed with the title “IMM, My Son, Rise Up”! which later this article was published in addition to the Muhammadiyah vote number. 12th year of June 63 1983 also promulgated by BKP-AMM in book form published in 1983. Thus,
