SuaraBandungBarat.id – The Indonesian Communist Party (PKI) left a deep wound for the journey of the Indonesian nation. The September 1965 incident is considered a black spot that has been carried out by the party bearing the hammer and sickle symbol.
However, until now the PKI is still a banned party in Indonesia. This is based on TAP MPRS XXV/MPRS/1966.
TAP MPRS XXV/MPRS/1966 emerged after the gray events of the G30S which were allegedly masterminded by the PKI. The Old Order (Orla) fell and was replaced by Suharto in the New Order (Orba), the PKI was officially a banned party.
Since the New Order era until now, discussing the PKI has become a taboo subject. Even the descendants of the PKI did not dare to come to the surface because there was a stigma attached to them.

Some time ago there was a discourse from the Commander of the TNI, General Andika Perkasa, that descendants of the PKI could register as members of the TNI. This discourse also reaps the pros and cons.
However, some descendants of the PKI have so far dared to appear in public and reveal their identities. Who are they? Here’s the review.
Dr. Rebekah Tjiptaning
The figure of a female politician who is often loud during DPR sessions and is known as a person who is firm when talking about the interests of the people, based on her admission, is a descendant of the PKI management.
The woman whose full name is Ribka Tjiptaning Proletariyati is the third child of Raden Mas Soeripto Tjondro Saputro who is a member of the PKI Special Bureau.

PDI-P politician Ribka Tjiptaning is one of the descendants of the PKI who had quite a successful career in politics.
Rebekah was born in Surakarta, Central Java and is currently a member of the Indonesian House of Representatives on Commission IX. In 2002, Rebekah had written a book entitled ‘I am proud to be a child of the PKI’.
I stay Fachriza
Furthermore, a public figure who claimed to be a descendant of the PKI was Fico Fachriza. Fico is a comedian who had tripped over a narcotics case.
Fico is the younger brother of Ananta Rispo who is both involved in the Indonesian stand-up world. Both of them are often wara-wiri on television and Youtube channels.
Fico revealed that his grandfather was Murad Aidit, the younger brother of the PKI leader, DN Aidit.
“DN Aidit (the leader of the PKI) has a younger brother named Murad Aidit, now he is my grandfather from my mother,” said Fico, quoted from Youtube adjisdoaibu.
Still on the same Youtube channel, Fico tells his experience as a child because he has a PKI line.
“But my school friends, back in elementary school there was a congregational midday prayer and the priest was rolling (alternately) so when it was my turn to be a priest I couldn’t say ‘PKI PKI don’t be a priest’, but his name is an elementary school kid, right?” he said.
Last but not least is Fico’s older brother, Ananta Rispo. Ananta Rispo in the Somasi program on the Youtube channel Deddy Corbuzier admitted that he is the grandson of the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI).
“I love Indonesia and I am the grandson of the PKI,” said Rispo at the start of his stand up at the Somasi event.
“If you know DN Aidit, DN Aidit has a younger brother, Murad Aidit and that’s my grandfather,” added Rispo.
“It means that in terms of the PKI, I’m very close. Directly to the PKI. This is the blood of the PKI,” said Rispo, who was immediately greeted with laughter by Boris Bokir.
Rispo then recounted his past when he was still in school with the stamp of PKI lineage. It was told by Rispo that he had learned a lesson about the atrocities of the PKI.
Rispo hilariously then insinuated the case of Brigadier J’s murder with the suspect, former Head of the Propam Division, Inspector General of Police, Ferdy Sambo.
“I studied history. What I learned, God, the PKI was so evil, killing generals, even though now generals are killing people,” said Rispo.
