To Make The Extreme And The Radical Personnel Becoming The Good Citizens (Miscellany)

To  Make The Extreme And The Radical Personnel  Becoming  The Good Citizens (Miscellany)


One terrorist prisoner, Umar Patek al Hisyam bin Alizein  has been appointed to become a member of Paskibra Unit in the Official Ceremony of the Rise of The Red and White flag in commemoration  of the  72 th year of the Independence of the Republic of Indonesia  in Lapas Class I of Surabaya in Sidoarjo, East Jawa  held on August 17, 2017.

Umar Patek  said, he has been four times to be trusted  as the member of Paskibra Unit to arise the Red and White flag since four years ago based on his own request  because he loves  the Country of Indonesia. He thanks his request has been trusted as good intention and to be responded. Umar Patek also had been doing successfully his mission to arise the Red and White flag in the official ceremony to commemorate the National awakening Day in 2015.

BNPT Research.

This special record happened among to be believed  the  diehard  terrorist  prisoners  definitely provoked our mind is this case true and there is really changing in  the heart and mind of Umar Patek.  Accordingly it is likely BNPT should be necessary to make this case as an object of serious research to get the answer on the real reason of this case.  Definitely we hope it may become the historical  fact to be  useful experience to built and to bring back those radical prisoners to become the good citizens. Apparently it is necessary to know what is the impact and  the reaction among the other diehard  prisoners

Definitely the main point is to get the answer what  have  been the main factors  and the real motive of  the changing attitude  of Umar Patek that may be used  to change the radical attitude of the other diehard  prisoners. The Indonesian Government is thoroughly wishing to really implement the principles of the Pancasila Philosophy  in all  the Government decision. Indonesia is not definitely under the authoritarian government.

It is likely the wise idea,   if  the Government plan  to put  the development program of Lapas all around Indonesia (Medan, Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, Jayapura and other places)  to be really implemented. Definitely we should not build  The “Sing-Sing Prison”  in Indonesia but The  House of Making Good Society (Lapas).

The Implementation of the  Government Regulation in Lieu of Law No 2 of 2017.

Definitely this is referring  to  one of the mission of the  Presidential Working Unit  to  Built  the real  Implementation of the  Pancasila State  Ideology in all Government Program  (UKP-PIP) , it is likely  the various legal problems  happened recently to be good for  the Government attention. It is accordingly wise to evaluate the Implementation  of  Government Regulation No 2 of 2017 to replace Law No 17 of 2013  on Mass  Organization.

Accusing the Government Regulation No 2 of 2017 on Mass Organization as the indication of the authoritarian decision  is definitely not true ,  however  this  accusation  should be understood  as  the demand, expecting the Government to dissolute  the radicalism and extremism based on Pancasila spirit.

Recently   Minister of Home Affairs said he has observed the  activities  of FPI  (Islam Protecting Front) for  two years. Minister of Home Affairs did not completely finish his words but definitely he is talking about  the implementation  of  The Government Regulation No 2 of 2017 on Mass Organization. Minister of Home Affairs apparently said before beside of HTI there will be tree or five more radical mass organizations will be dissolved.

In the case of Umar Patek it is likely BNPT will make the serious research to answer the main question, whether the  changing attitude  of Umar Patek   is  true and  if the changing  attitude  of Umar Patek is  true what is the main reason of his  changing attitude.

Since the Program on Preventing the Extremism and Radicalism  is authorized by BNPT it is likely correct if BNPT make also the serious research  what  is the real reason of extremism and radicalism growing among the FPI members. Is FPI against Pancasila Ideology ?  This is also a question that should be answered before the   decision to dissolve FPI is made.

The idea of this course of action suggested to the Government  to be definitedly intended to  purpose  the idea to solve  the  problem of extremism and radicalism using the Pancasila Spirit   and  it is not definitely  purely using the legal action  that is vulnerable to be accused as the implementation of the authoritarian power.

Definitely the Government do not want to be accused as the  authoritarian power and abuse the power to get more bigger and stronger power  (Power tend to corrupt and corrupt power is absolutely corrupt).

The implementation on the character screening to be applied among the members of  radical mass organization is likely necessary. Those personnel (members of FPI)  who are potentially  built  and educated becoming a good Citizens and  trained  them to become the responsible  government apparatus  through the program of  “The  Training of  to Save The Country”  conducted by the Ministry of Defense,  could be likely considered .

President Jokowi has always reminded that our long land border are needed serious attention, watched and secured,  because the land border line is one on the weak areas for various type of infiltration coming  from abroad  entering illegally into Indonesia. Likely it is  also good to be thought that the so many Indonesian Youth of educated, courage and good character to be formed as the “Land Border Guard”  as a part of effort protecting  the Country of Indonesia. This kind of mission definitely could be offered to the educated, brave, courage and good character of FPI members to join.

Umar Patek case should inspire the Government to act pertinently, wisely and philosophically in implementing the Government Regulation No 2 of 2017.

The mission of the Government is to built and to develop the Indonesia people becoming the good Citizens. The mission of te Government is not  just publish the Law and Regulation, to dissolved the considered radical organization and caught those members who are making illegal activity and sent them to jail. The Governmernt dfinitely has the mission to build those young people becoming the good Citizens.

Cabinet Meeting.

It is likely better if all the Ministries  concerns (Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Defense, Ministery of Law and Human Right,  TNI and BNPT) under the coordination of The Coordinating  Ministers for Political, Legal and Security Affairs  to meet and to discuss  it.

The Implementation of the Government Regulation  No2 of 2017 is not not only the responsibility of the Ministry of Home Affairs, but it is the responsibility of the Cabinet. People believe the Indonesian Cabinet is not the authoritarian government but a group of Indonesian Statesmen.
