I believe that children who do not have parents a.k.a Orphans, are very unfortunate people therefore their well being should be protected.
That's why I was sad when I read on The Jakarta Globe that the Police and Prosecutor in Tasikmalaya, West Java, have locked up some orphans inside an Ahmadiyah Orphan Home since 18 December 2010.
The Mayor of Tasikmalaya was quoted as saying the the lock-up was requested by the public, and if they were not locked-up, they are afraid that the so called Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) might take action.
The worst thing was that only the National Commission for Protection of Children (Komnas Anak) cared about this sad matter.
I wonder where is the Minister of Social who is supposed to take care of matters related to Orphans. Is he too busy accompanying the President watching our national team's matches in the recent AFF-Suzuki Cup football tournament ?
