Abstract

In July 2010, thousands of people gathered from across Lombok and across Indonesia to celebrate the 75th anniversary of an Islamic boarding school. The event featured seven musical performances, a cabinet minister, a charming young governor, award-winning Qur’an reciters and, of course, West Nusa Tenggara province’s leading Islamic scholars. However, the real superstars of the day were two elderly sisters who never even took the microphone. Applause broke out every time their names were mentioned. The Lombok Post covered their attendance on the front page on both 25 July – the day of the anniversary – and the following day. The reason these women received such attention is because their cooperation represents a new hope for an old organisation to return to its old self.
The organisation is Nahdlatul Wathan, a huge and powerful network of religious boarding schools and social operations. Although its name is Arabic for ‘Revival of the Nation’, Nahdlatul Wathan is famous for its activity specifically in eastern Indonesia. It is almost certainly the largest non-governmental entity based east of Bali. Its hundreds of thousands of students, alumni and loyal followers have also led the organisation into fields other than religion, particularly politics, which has in turn led Nahdlatul Wathan into trouble.
