- Pancasila, Ideology, Islamic Shariah, Signify and Signified, and Indonesia
Pancasila is believed to have an important history in establishing Indonesia as a nation. It is also believed to have successfully unitedethnics, languages, and religions in Indonesia. Although there are different ways in implementing Pancasila from Soekarno era to Joko Widodo era, they agree that Pancasila is a philosophy, a view of life, and an ideology of Indonesia. Along the way, Pancasila has also been faced with communist ideology and political Islamic groups who want to replace Pancasila as the state ideology. The question posed in this paper is whether Pancasila has a future in the midst of the surveys of more than 50 percent Indonesians agree on the Islamic Shariah (Islamic law). To illustrate this, this study uses Signifier and Signiefied concept of a linguistic Ferdinand de Saussure. Signifier is a conception of an object in which Pancasila as a symbol. Then, Signiefied is a conception of the function of the object or the function of Pancasila that is understood by people. Pancasila is interpreted as a guide for the life of the entire nation of Indonesia which later interpreted by other political Islam as an un-Islamic thing that is not based on Al-Quran and Hadith. While the other meanings show that Pancasila is compatible with Islamic teachings. Although double meanings are unavoidable in an object, the meaning of Pancasila as a philosophy, a view of life, and an ideology of the nation becomes a challenge among other meanings exist.
