A solidarity act of a million candles in several cities in Indonesia initially triggered by a two year prison sentence for Jakarta Capital City Governor Basuki Tjahaya Purnama alias Ahok that was peaceful, now the theme is expanded to maintain the diversity and peace of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia based on Pancasila and the Constitution 1945.
In some areas including Jakarta, Denpasar, Medan, Balikpapan, Surabaya, Nusa Tenggara East, North Sulawesi and other places almost all of them are filled with candle lights, singing national songs and prayers from interfaith leaders for the peaceful NKRI.
This action also indicates a sense of worry, anxiety about the actions of radical groups and intolerants who want to change the state base. The government and most of the nation's people want no division in this beloved archipelago due to differences in tribes, religions, races and the like.
The diversity that is the gift of God Almighty should be kept and cared for to cultivate unity and unity. Commitment to preserve diversity should be the learning of all parties, especially the elites who are carrying out the mandate to realize the ideals of freedom in the form of a just society, prosperous and prosperous. Because after all this noisy, big or small has something to do with the celebration or political activity. One of the goals of politics is to gain or seize power. But to seize power in unconstitutional ways will only cause a commotion, even to scatter this nation.
there will be simultaneous elections in 17 provinces as well as 154 districts
and cities. And in 2019 there will be simultaneous elections to elect the
president and vice president and DPR, DPD and Provincial, Regency and City
DPRD. It is not impossible that this political celebration will increase
political escalation at various levels.
Even today's noise has already been linked to the 2019 presidential election. Maneuvers, political acrobats have already begun to be drafted and even played to fulfill the ambitions of power. We want to remind, action commitment to keep NKRI that now appears in various regions is an indicator of society that can not be fooled again by various maneuvers in the name of the people, even in the name of religion. People are fed up with soap opera politics, political and political slogans without ethics presented by the elite who seemed thirsty and greedy for power. It is hard to find a statesman who really thinks for the future of his nation.
Everything is pragmatic and transactional. Not ashamed of corruption and not shy to protect and defend the wrong. Admittedly this nation's problems are complex and can only be decomposed and addressed in calm and peaceful situations. If every time rowdy and noisy, certainly will not solve the problem, it adds trouble.
For that, we hope the commitment to maintain and nurse the NKRI emerging from the citizens of this nation into energy to rise and focus solve existing problems. Make the forgetful to be elute, the grumpy become patient. Thinking new talk, not talking new thinking. NKRI price die, do not bother anymore!
Pancasila and Republic of Indonesia
Thousands of wreaths sent by various elements of society for the TNI and Polri recently are a form of support to the institution in maintaining Pancasila, The 1945 Constitution, the Bhineka Tunggal Ika and the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). Until today this phenomenon continues to flow up to the area.
This can be read as an indicator of unrest as well as concerns of many parties to the current state of this beloved country. Likewise, the movement or movement to install the DP (display Picture) Garuda bird symbol on the mobile phone screen can be interpreted as a step reminiscent of this nation to maintain the integrity and diversity.
Concern is not excessive and it must be addressed firmly. Given the latter in the name of freedom of association and expression of opinion, there are groups of people who want to impose their will by using the power of the masses. They feel the most righteous that whatever their desires must be obeyed.
Demonstrations are not prohibited, issuing opinions is guaranteed by law. But all there are limits, there are rules, there etiknya. So when it is beyond the limit of propriety and breaking the rules, the authorities must behave and take decisive action. Never hesitate. TNI and Polri will not be allowed to walk alone against the violators of the law that threatens the Unitary Republic of Indonesia (NKRI). Support through the wreath became his proof.
Woe to a nation that forgets history. In fact, our first president Ir. Soekarno once addressed the title "Jasmerah" - never forget history. The history of this nation is clear. With thousands of islands stretching from Sabang to Meraoke and from Miangas to Rote, with various ethnicities, tribes, religions and customs, have agreed to bind themselves in NKRI in diversity based on Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution. NKRI does not recognize the majority and minority. Thus there should be no ripples that threaten the integrity of NKRI and will replace Pancasila. Ripples should be removed before they develop into waves, even storms. If it can be persuasive, if not can, what can be done must be done with firm action.
Learn from other countries such as Syria, Iraq and some other countries devastated by the turmoil between citizens fighting for power. The endless civil war that makes all suffer, all tormented and no time to build. Say with flowers. We lift the hat by way of citizens of the nation addressing the present condition of this nation that is so worrisome. Threatening the integrity of NKRI, denying diversity.
Not by violence, not by shouting in the street, but with interest. Give it to institutions that are responsible for state security. Flowers scatter fragrance. The flower symbol of beauty and also cause coolness and peace. Citizen support with interest to TNI and Polri should be a moral boost for both institutions to safeguard four pillars of nationality namely Pancadila, UUD 1945, Bhineka Tunggal Ika and NKRI, which can not be contested. Can not be tampered with. In fact, it is a dead price!
