Subversion Towards Indonesian Government In Discourse Of Democracy

Karman Karman

Abstract


Democratization in developing countries gets a challenge from Islamic fundamentalists. ICT provides an important opportunity for the rise of subversion against a democratic government. This article deals with construction of fundamentalists of Islamic groups in Indonesia towards democracy via the Internet. The goal of this study is to know their construction in the discourse of democracy. This research was using the method of discourse analysis with the model introduced by Leeuwen (2008). This research shows that the fundamentalists construct democracy on the basis of theology arguments (i.e.: democracy is a kufr system, idolatry, forbidden, and Islam-based invalid system) and bad effects of democracy. Democracy is a colonization tool of Western countries. It creates accompliceship between the rich and the powerful. Fundamentalists regard democracy as a “religion”. The Indonesian government is represented as “kafir (non-believer)/murtad(apostate)”, “colonialist’s accomplice”, “pharaoh”. Fundamentalist’s internet use becomes a challenge for the government with the subversion discourse emergence.
