CHAIRMAN Muhammadiyah General Chairman, Prof. Din Syamsuddin, said the reason for not attending the hearing confirmation Muhammadiyah in Kemenag RI, because of differences in beliefs between Muhammadiyah and the government, in this case the Ministry of Religious Affairs.
"Muhammadiyah feel no need to attend a meeting confirmation, for the reason that this belief should not be intervened by the government. For the years to come, Muhammadiyah also should not intervene and declare the hearing did not take it (confirmation), "said Din Syamsuddin, in Jakarta, Thursday (19/7).
