The Chairman of Muhammadiyah Haedar Nashir responded to the many cases of hate speech and hoax news that recently rampant. Latest, the police arrested a lecturer who spread the news hoax about the murder of people who are considered muazzin in Majalengka. 

"If the educated people will make the hoax, [if make hoax] yes means wrong educated," Haedar said after attending a Philanthropy talk show for the Empowerment of People at UGM, Yogyakarta, Thursday (1/3/2018). 

TAW or Tara Arsih Wijayani were arrested after the Indonesian Police Headquarters and Majalengka Police Department investigated the murder case of a person considered a muazzin. 

According to Majalengka Police Chief, AKBP Noviana Tursanurohmad, Tara claimed never check and deepen the truth of the news, thus making it spread the false news through Facebook. 

When arrested, Facebook's suspect's Facebook status has been shared more than 7,000 times and commented on 1,700 comments. 

"It has been a long time for Muhammadiyah to see that social media and the digital world are a new relation in the life of society, and some of our citizens are not ready and immature in using new social relations, or new social media," Haedar said. 

Therefore, in the perspective of Jurisprudence of information possessed by Muhammadiyah, hate speech by anyone, through any media, then for any motive is something that does not show morality karimah. 

"Muhammadiyah certainly criticized, did not approve of various forms of criminal behavior through social media, and the case would be the duty of the police to investigate thoroughly, and no less important, so prevention tool for this does not happen," added Haedar. 

To prevent the spread and making of news hoax, Haedar suggested the Ministry of Communications and Informatics (Kominfo) create an increasingly sophisticated digital security system. 

"Secondly, education, in my opinion, there is no learning process that is very sporting and important in addition to education, Muhammadiyah will remain its attitude is to educate people not to produce, reproduce let alone mobilize hate speech," said Haedar.
