It is important in exploring on how the students, as intellectual and middle class, infected by NII doctrines. The fact shows, in Banyumas region itself, there are 43 students being the victims of NII in 2011 alone. Furthermore, it is important in analyzing on how higher education institutions give response to the intrusion fundamentalist movement like NII. The preliminary result shows that the ideological dimension is the main reasons of the urban students joining NII. The NII recruiters convince the student victims by migrating from the infidel Indonesian nation-state, known as NKRI, to Islamic state as a way in achieving the true heaven. In doing so, the new followers must sacrifice something, even by stealing from their parents and relatives, for migrating to the Islamic State. However, the three higher educational institutions are response reluctantly for this issue. At the same time, they are all claiming that they are committed to the NKRI. These higher educational institutions are symbolically concern but there are only limited awareness among the stakeholders, includes the policy makers in these higher educational institutions. Therefore, the NII underground movement is still spreading through out the campus and remains dangerous.
