Peran "Pivotal" Pemuda BM Diah

Peran "Pivotal" Pemuda BM Diah
Dokumen Pribadi

Tepat ketika para awak pers memperingati Hari Pers Nasional (HPN) 2018 di kota Padang, Sumatera Barat, 9 Februari 2018,  maka di Jakarta terbit sebuah buku dari Penerbit Yayasan Pustaka Obor Indonesia, berjudul: "Catatan B.M.Diah: Peran 'Pivotal' Pemuda Seputar Lahirnya Proklamasi 17-8-'45."

Sebagai penyunting buku, saya sangat gembira, karena buku ini diterbitkan oleh penerbit yang dimiliki mantan wartawan senior almarhum Mochtar Lubis. Sebagaimana kita ketahui Mochtar Lubis adalah sahabat dekat B.M.Diah. Ia pernah bekerja di harian "Merdeka," milik B.M.Diah. Selanjutnya Mochtar Lubis mendirikan harian "Indonesia Raya."

Pada HPN di Padang baru lalu, saya mendengar Presiden RI Joko Widodo (Jokowi) menyebut nama seorang tokoh pers yang lain, yaitu Rosihan Anwar. Ia juga adalah tokoh pers Indonesia yang juga dulunya bergabung dengan harian "Merdeka " pimpinan B.M.Diah. Rosihan Anwar kemudian mendirikan harian "Pedoman."

Memang sedikit kecewa ketika di HPN kota Padang itu, di mana saya hadir, nama B.M.Diah dan Mochtar Lubis tidak disebut. Sebenarnya ketiga tokoh pers inilah yang berperan besar dalam melahirkan tokoh pers muda, termasuk mantan Menteri Penerangan Harmoko. Pun muncul pertanyaan saya, kenapa nama Mochtar Lubis tidak disebut bersama-sama Rosihan Anwar? Dari marganya memang Lubis, tetapi ia dilahirkan di Padang.

Tentang Harmoko, di dalam penuturannya di buku "Aku Wartawan  Merdeka" (Jakarta: PT.Spirit Komonika, 2009) di halaman 175, Harmoko setelah selesai menamatkan SMA nya langsung melamar menjadi wartawan "Merdeka," pimpinan B.M.Diah.

Betapa pentingnya peran harian "Merdeka," ini, saya ketika di S2 Fakultas Ilmu Pengetahuan Budaya, Jurusan Ilmu Sejarah Universitas Indonesia tahun 2007 menulis tesis berjudul: "Harian Merdeka Sebuah Personal Journalism B.M. Diah." 

Sekali lagi saya mengatakan, sangat menyesal di hari bersejarah Pers Nasional 2018 itu, nama B.M.Diah dan Mochtar Lubis tidak disebut. Boleh jadi Rosihan Anwar berasal dari Minangkabau, tetapi bukankah Mochtar Lubis lahir di Padang. Sebagai pengantar Hari Pers yang bersifat nasional, sebaiknya nama Mochtar Lubis disebut. Juga B.M.Diah. Karena yang diperingati Hari Pers Nasional, bersifat nasional.

Buku yang saya paparkan di atas, dengan tebal 392 lebih, menceritakan tentang peranan pemuda B.M.Diah dalam gerakan pemuda "Angkatan Baru '45." Pemuda-pemuda inilah yang kemudian mendesak Bung Karno-Hatta (tokoh tua) membacakan Proklamasi Kemerdekaan pada 17 Agustus 1945.
