About Us

BACKGROUND
“WORLD INFORMATION” is now dominated by contents which are unfair and unbalanced, especially in the news reporting concerning Islam and Muslims.

“INFORMATION ON ISLAMIC VALUES” that Islam is rahmatan lil ‘alamin(blessings for the whole universe and its contents) has not been evenly spreaded by the international media.

“INFORMATION ABOUT THE PALESTINANS STRUGGLE FOR INDEPENDENCE” and conditions of Muslim countries have not been reported objectively and fairly in the western media. The international media that is dominated by western media tends to make biased news report that cause Islamophobia in the western world.

“International Conference for the Liberation of Palestine and Al-Aqsa” in Bandung on 4-5 July 2012 instructs Imaamul Muslimin Hizbullah Muhyiddin Hamidy to lead the acceleration of the liberation of Al-Aqsa Mosque and Palestine and the defense of the interests of Muslims in the world.

DEFINITION
Mi’raj Islamic News Agency (MINA) is the first Islamic News Agency and the only one in Indonesia that is based on Islamic principles. MINA is expected to enrich the global media that is Islamic and increase international support for Palestinian independence.

The presence of MINA is a real follow-up of the results of the International Conference and Liberation of Al Aqsa Mosque in the Palestinian Liberation Bandung in July 2012. MINA is an alternative medium in order to compensate for global domination by Zionist influenced opinion. In disseminating information, MINA clearly brings to light the truth, justice, security, peace and honesty and the trust in accordance with the teachings of Islam.

Muslims hope that the Islamic news agency MINA could provide benefit for the people in the world and could become a reference for true and honest news.

MINA General Manager, Muhyiddin Hamidy, who previously sat for more than 30 years in the top level management of ANTARA, the national news agency of Indonesia. In the MINA Management, he is also accompanied by some senior journalists from ANTARA who sit in the editorial management and as a consultant as well as editors.

MINA (Mi’raj Islamic News Agency) was officially launched by the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Republic of Indonesia, Marzuki Alie in Jakarta, December 18, 2012. Marzuki Alie expected MINA can serve to accelerate the recognition of an independent Palestine and as a permanent member of the UN General Assembly.

He said MINA presence is also expected to be a reference to get the correct message and news reports on Islam and Muslim ummah and must have a complete, objective and fair news reporting in the context of trade, economy, and politics as well as the other matters.

Zionists control the flow of information for a long time, ranging from news on Western countries to news about developing countries. But with the development of the online era, the Palestinian press or journalists from other countries sympathetic to the Palestinian freedom struggle also began to influence world opinion.

Thus, the assumption, “If you want to control the world, you must control oil” is no longer relevant today. The relevant assumption now is “If you want to rule the world, you must master the world mass media.”

Thus, diplomatic maneuvers for Palestinian independence will achieve success if it is supported by an effective mass media. In this regard lies the importance of the presence of Islamic news agency like MINA.
