BerichtOnderwerp: G30S/PKI film is the correct version of history: Tommy Soeharto   ma 25 sep 2017 - 0:28





The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Sun, September 24, 2017

The son of former president Soeharto, Hutomo "Tommy" Mandala Putra, defended the Indonesian Military's (TNI) move to screen the propaganda film Pengkhianatan G30S/PKI (Betrayal of the Communists).

Tommy, the youngest son of former president Soeharto, said on Sunday that more people should go and see the film, as it contains the accurate details of what really transpired on Sept. 30, 1965.( or so says he?sik.)

"We can't turn our backs from history. What's in the film is the true version of history and nobody could change that," Tommy said as quoted by tribunnews,com.

Tommy, however, said that it should not be made mandatory for people to see the film. "There should be no compulsion," he said.

Pengkhianatan G30SPKI, which is directed by acclaimed director Arifin C. Noer, tells the story of Soeharto in quashing a coup blamed on the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). In the big-budget and award-winning film, communists are depicted as godless savages who mutilated military officers in a frenzy.

Under the New Order regime, the movie was made mandatory viewing and was broadcast on public television annually on the night of Sept. 30. The government stopped the annual broadcast in 1998, soon after Soeharto was ousted from power.

Gatot order on PKI film could create division: PDI-P

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Sun, September 24, 2017

Secretary-general of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) Hasto Kristiyanto said that Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Gen. Gatot Nurmantyo could stir up fresh controversy with his order on the screening of the propaganda film Pengkhianatan G30S/PKI (Betrayal of the Communists).

Hasto said that although the TNI commander had the authority to order the screening, the program could in fact create more problems in the society.

"What the PDI-P wants is that we should look to the future by learning from what happened in the past," Hasto said as quoted by tempo.co, adding that a leader should make efforts to unite the country and not create division.

Gatot has ordered TNI personnel to hold screening of Pengkhinatan G30S/PKI in an effort to teach the young generation about the danger of communism.

President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo has not commented on Gatot's plan.

Pengkhianatan G30SPKI, which is directed by acclaimed director Arifin C. Noer, tells the story of Gen. Soeharto in quashing a coup blamed on the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). In the big-budget film, communists are depicted as godless savages who mutilated military officers in a frenzy.

Last week, while visiting the tomb of Soeharto in Surakarta, Gatot praised the former leader, saying that he should be a role model for all TNI personnel.

Army to hold screenings of PKI movie

The Jakarta Post, Jakarta, Sun, September 17, 2017

The Army has instructed its personnel to hold screenings of the propaganda film Pengkhianatan G30S/PKI (Betrayal of the Communists) on Sept. 30.

An internal message carrying the instruction has recently been circulating on social media, prompting the Army to confirm it.
Army spokesperson Brig. Gen. Wuryanto said that such a mandatory screening would be crucial to get across the "correct" version of history.

"Thirty September is an important date for our country. These days, we deal with so many efforts to twist facts about the historical events of Sept. 30, 1965," he said as quoted by tempo.co.

He said the film could provide key information regarding what happened on the fateful date, especially for the young generation, who was not given enough education on civic matters and Pancasila since the start of the Reform Era.The movy tells the story of Gen. Soeharto quashing a coup blamed on the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI). In the big-budget film, communists are depicted as godless savages who mutilated military officers in a frenzy.

Under the New Order regime, the movie was made mandatory viewing and was broadcast on public television annually on the night of Sept. 30.


(such a 'screaming' shame that in an enlightened day and age like today there would be a need for misinformation to cloak what really happened on that fateful day way back in 1965 and onwards, the adults from about that time are just about all gone so now there is a need to brainwash the youth? " Oh yee deceivers know that Truth will always prevail!) siK.s comments
