Cut Nyak Dhien the Real Super Woman Hero

Tjoet Njak Dien did not die in her own land or amongst her own people. She died as "Ibu Perbu," which means "The Queen", a name given to her by the local people in Sumedang, West Java. The local people never knew that this gracious and religious prisoner, bought to them by Dutch Soldiers on December 11th 1906, was, in fact, the famous Jihad Heroine of Acheh Province. Dien had fought the Dutch from the jungle for 25 years.

We know from other modern studies, such as "The Rope of God" by Siegel (1969), how strong the spirit of Jihad is amongst the Achehnese. However, what that book does not reveal, is how the women are ready to join and lead in Jihad also. These are other heroine’s names that we are familiar with and our apologies for any others who have not been mentioned.
