Muhammadiyah’s Anniversary

This organization knows no blue-blood system. Although the family and descendants of KH Ahmad Dahlan as the founder of Muhammadiyah are certainly honored, there is no privilege in terms of organization and leadership.

TANGKAPAN LAYAR/DIAN DEWI PURNAMASARI

President Joko Widodo delivers remarks at Muhammadiyah's 109th Milad online from the presidential palace, Thursday (11/18/2021).

Although November is better known nationally as heroes’ month with the 10 Nov. 1945 event in Surabaya as its anchor, for Muhammadiyah, November is also its anniversary month. Muhammadiyah, one of the largest and oldest Islamic organizations in the country, was born on 18 Nov. 1912.

Discussions on the national role of Muhammadiyah, its contribution to democracy, education, economics and health have frequently been held, including how this organization has dedicated itself to the handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. However, there is something occasionally overlooked, which is its cultural role.
