Some time ago, a rift arose between Sunnis and Shiites in Sampang, Madura.
Then, banners spread across Yogyakarta stating that the Shia were heretical. On
the internet, many websites sprang up claiming that anyone that justifies Shia is
heretical. These were a form of propaganda, campaigning, or “proselytizing”
that another group is deviant and infidel. This research tried to analyze the
propaganda process in the media by radical groups against Shiite groups in
Yogyakarta and to find out the techniques and tools used in it so that all parties
could anticipate and map the potential conflicts. The research was conducted in
Yogyakarta with a qualitative research type. Data collection was carried out by
document review. The results showed that, first, propaganda provided a stimulus
to the public to seek knowledge and information about the Shi’a group –and
mainly conveyed a negative view of the Shi’a group. Second, this research found
that the mechanism carried out was by providing information to the public by
placing the media in strategic places. Third, the research identified that the
propaganda theory used is Name-Calling, Glittering Generality, and Transfer,
while the media used were billboards, banners, leaflets, and brochures.
