Cinta Karya Village, Social Interaction, NU and Muhammadiyah


NU and Muhammadiyah are the two largest Islamic organizations in Indonesia. These two large organizations have differences in their religious understanding. These differences certainly invite communal conflict between fellow Islamic communities and have an impact on hampering the process of social interaction at all levels of society, especially in the Cinta Karya Village community. This writing aims to analyze the social interactions that occur between the NU and Muhammadiyah communities in Cinta Karya Village. This writing uses a qualitative approach method with an ethnographic type. The findings obtained in this research were that there was no violence or discrimination from each community group in Cinta Karya Village. However, in the context of worship, sometimes they don’t get along at certain times. This is the source of conflict between fellow Muslim communities in this village. Despite this, their social interactions can still be said to be well established. It is recommended that reconciliation be carried out in an effort to build peace from this cold war. Positive peace can only be achieved if we communicate well with each other. Through this dialogue, it is hoped that the parties in conflict can have an open view towards each other to avoid violence.
