Dr Haedar Nashir

Chairman of Muhammadiyah

We are pleased to invite you to a Distinguished Public Lecture hosted by the Monash Asia Institute (MAI) in collaboration with the Monash Office of Global Engagement, with Dr. Haedar Nashir as the speaker on the topic of Muhammadiyah and Progressive Islam in Indonesia.
Dr. Nashir is the current chairman of Muhammadiyah, which is the second largest Islamic 
organization in Indonesia. 9277 schools, 171 universities, 500 hospitals and nursing homes sit 
under Muhammadiyah. A member since 1983, Dr. Nashir was elected as a member of the central leadership board (2005-2015) and then Chairman in 2015. During his visit to Monash, he will be accompanied by 37 university representatives associated with Muhammadiyah.
Dr. Nashir will introduce the concept of Islam with progress (Islam berkemajuan) which was launched in the 47th national congress in Makassar, Indonesia. Dr. Nashir will explore the ways in which Muhammadiyah institutions counter the growing narrative of Islamic conservatism and socio-economic problems in Indonesia.
