Kampung Naga was burned down by the DI/TII group in 1956 because it did not support its desire to become part of an Islamic state. This resulted in the burning of the historical archives of Kampung Naga at that time led by Kartosoewiryo. At that time, DI/TII wanted the creation of an Islamic state in Indonesia. The people of Kampung Naga were more supportive of President Soekarno and were not sympathetic to the intentions of the DI/TII Organization. Therefore, the DI/TII organization, which did not get the sympathy of the residents of Kampung Naga, burned down the Kampung Naga village.
