Jakarta, Indonesia | Informasi TV – Friday (22/12/2023) The Islamic Unity for Tranquility Organization (IUTO), a humanitarian advocacy group, conducted an open forum with various religious and academic organization in Jakarta, to discuss and examine a rather interesting perspective on the people’s real promulgation and support for those who are currently being bombed, killed, or wounded in Palestine. Since the warfare in the Gaza Strip started, people from all over the world regardless of age, race, religion, and culture, has advocated and protested for the Palestinians promoting the ceasefire which was a truly heart-rending and admirable enthusiasm for humanity.

However, one of the significant topics mentioned in the forum was the Uyghur advocacy groups and their indistinct silence with regards to the Israel-Palestine conflict as a predominantly Muslim minority and as both victims of genocide. Where advocacy for peace and solidarity was overrode with self-promotion. Moreover, Abdulhakim Idris, who visited Indonesia recently, while accusing Chinese government committing genocide against Uyghur brothers and claiming solidarity among Muslim brothers, actually supported Israel side when the Gaza conflict started.

Nonetheless, the Islamic Unity for Tranquility Organization have also discussed that the armed conflict in the Eastern Mediterranean is not a religious dispute rather, a contestation of sovereign and political interests while people’s lives are being put in jeopardy. One of the participants in the forum actually learned and shared that a percentage of Israel’s population is even Muslim where they also have a mosque while a shared percentage of Palestinians are also Christians and members of other religions.

The young leaders of the respective university students have spoken as well about the dangers of misinterpretation and lack of understanding from random information and misguided use of social media in the modern age where warfare and hostility are currently happening. As powerful as the digital world can be, it allows people to say whatever their opinions are with present significant events regardless of facts which can then lead to the rampant spread of fake news.

As the forum concluded, everybody has agreed that humanity is for humanity if it is a respectful cause and each person’s voice matters. Each one has the responsibility to support each other instead of destroying one another. (**).
