Abstract

ISIS became global attention with its purpose on bring back the caliphate era. But when Raqqa and Mosul as their ‘Caliphate’ was fallen, ISIS still a serious threat. Aman Abdurrahman, who since 2008 actively giving speeches about Tauhid also supporting and pledging allegiance to ISIS. Several terrorist attacks such as Sarinah bombing, Samarinda Church bombing, Kampung Melayu bombing, attack on North Sumatra Regional Police, and shooting police officers in Bima shows that he has succeeded in influencing pupils. Mako Brimob Riot and family of suicide bombers in May 2018 shows that Aman Abdurrahman’s influence and ISIS propaganda was still spreading in Indonesia even after ISIS’ lost. To understand this, we will be using social construction theory which become the basis of this qualitative research. In addition, in-depth interviews with former radical activists were conducted to see the internalization process. The urgency of this studies is to comprehend the basis thoughts about Jihad and analyze how his thoughts externalizes, and objectifies his pupils. Major findings of this studies, first, the shifting on Aman Abdurrahman’s thought of takfiri berantai. Second, there are several factors that become a benchmark in forecasting pro-ISIS network in Indonesia.
