Nahdlatul Ulama

Gus Dur believed that Islam practiced in Nusantara is a true and authentic manifestation of Islam. Islam in Nusantara even shows the cosmopolitanism of Islamic culture.

On 7 February 2023, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) commemorated the centenary of its establishment. The calculation was based on the Hijri calendar. NU was born in 16 Rajab 1344; 7 February was 16 Rajab 1444. As for the Gregorian calendar, NU was established on 31 January 1926. Thus, the centenary of NU as based on the Gregorian calendar will be celebrated again in the next three years.

The NU centenary activities and commemoration were not only implemented by the NU Executive Board (PBNU) and various institutions related to NU, but also by other organizations. Among these are the National Mandate Party (PAN), which in East Java is sometimes referred to as "the party of its son Nahdliyyin" or "Party Akan [for] NU". PAN, which in its history is synonymous with Muhammadiyah, held a "NU 1 Century Symposium" at Sheraton Hotel, Surabaya, East Java, 18 February 2023, attended by PBNU chairperson Yahya Cholil Staquf and a number of kiai (ulemas) from East Java, such as KH Fuad Nurhasan Sidogiri.
