Abstract

This study discusses the reaction of Pesantren Al-Mukmin Ngruki to radicalism and terrorism. Shortly after the Bali bombings in 2002, the world's attention turned to Islamic institution namely Pesantren (Islamic boarding school) for the suspected radical perpetrators graduated from Pesantren, such as Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, Imam Samudra, Amrozi, and Mukhlas. Among Pesantrens considered promoting radicalism and terrorism is Pesantren Al-Mukmin Ngruki Solo. The purpose of the research is to find out the reaction and steps taken by Pesantren al Mukmin to dismiss the negative stigma of it’s allegedly involvement in radicalism and terrorism. Methodologically, the research is based on a qualitative research with a multi-case and cross-sectional research design and in-depth interview. The results of this research show that Pesantren al-Mukmin is like other Pesantren in Indonesia with national curriculum. Therefore, as an institution it cannot be said that it supports radicalism and terrorism. The serious efforts of the Pesantren al Mukmin have been made to dismiss the negative stigma by moderate education, actively open to outsiders having better relation with government.
