The government of Indonesia has developed anti-terrorism regulations, particularly since the Bali bombing in 2002. The regulation is prepared to counter radical ideologies, and for this reason, the government cooperates with many stakeholders, particularly religious institutions. The participation of religious organisations plays a vital role in maintaining religious harmony in society, particularly political stability. Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) is one of Indonesia’s leading Islamic organisations, which means the NU has actively contributed to social welfare and nation-building. Within the concept of Islam Nusantara (Archipelagic Islamic), NU has captured the attention of scholars, both local and overseas, and it is massively used to counter radicalism. Islam Nusantara is the typology of Muslim Indonesia. This paper employs descriptive analysis to critically examines the SAS’s speeches on the Islamic discourse and the political role of the NU at the anniversary of Fatayat NU 73 in 2019.
