Forgotten Founding Father

      HE was the first important figure who conceived of and wrote about the Republic of Indonesia. Muhammad Yamin called him, “Father of the Republic of Indonesia.” Following the declaration of independence he mobilized the youth for a mass rally at the Ikada Square on September 19, 1945. Tan Malaka could be called Indonesia’s most mysterious independence figure. He lived on the run in 11 countries. He had 23 false identities. He was relentlessly hunted by the Dutch, Japanese, British, and American secret police. Tan’s life as a fugitive and his death, killed by the Indonesian Armed Forces, remind us of the legendary Che Guevara in Latin America.
