Please Take Action Against Violence

The Minister of Education Muhammad Nuh said in Jogyakarta today that the government is considering plans to include tolerance class as an effort to avoid conflicts among people of different religion, race, tradition in Indonesia.

The Jakarta Globe quoted the Minister as saying that schools were in the “front lines” in the battle against intolerance, which he said was a serious threat to national unity.  He cited deadly attacks against Ahmadiyah, a minority Muslim sect, as well as riots against Christian communities perpetrated by hard-liners.

Frankly speaking, I believe that Indonesian school students have already been fully fed with indoctrination. 

We already have the Pendidikan Moral Pancasila (Pancasila Moral Education) which teaches about the Pancasila as our five national principles i.e. Believe in God, Humanity, Unity, Democracy and Social Justice. But considering the various intolerance that often exists,  I often heard people ask what's the use of having such lesson.

In my opinion what is urgent right now is to start taking actions against anyone or organization that adopted violence. President SBY should be consistent with his promise to take action against such organizations. He must not tolerate Cabinet minister who speak and act differently, like the Minister of Interior Gumawan Fauzi who met and talked friendly with the leader of violent organization FPI soon after SBY threatened to ban violent organizations. This sign of weakness has made FPI reacted by threatening to overthrow the government, which is simply a nonsense.

By taking serious legal actions against anyone or organization that adopt violence it would make others hesitate before using violence. It would therefore make the society feel secured.

I strongly agree with this plan. Hopefully it also be a curriculum in boarding schools.

Hi Tikno,
Considering the exclusivity of religious boarding schools, muslims and non muslims, I also think that they are the ones who need the lesson.

Do I agree with you? Bet I do!

I guess there is no lack of moral knowledge among students. What's needed now is maintenance of the law.

Individuals preaching hatred or calling for violence, should be prosecuted.

Organizations doing the same should be disbanded.

People acting violently towards people with dissenting beliefs and convictions, should be put in jail.

Ministers who don't agree with the administration's official policy should be sacked.

The secular state shouldn't be a paper tiger.

Hi Colson,

I agree that the government should not be like a paper tiger, but it should act like a government of country with 240 million people.

Laws must be upheld and enforced against anyone/organizations that broke the laws.

mata pelajaran etika dan bersopan santun serta bertoleransi juga perlu bagi pelajar
agar ga tawuran melulu

TUKANG CoLoNG said...

kalo bener diadakan sekolah kayak gitu, mata pelajaran yang paling jadi fokus misalnya agama. disana siswa dibangun ketuhanannya..

Multibrand said...

@Attayaya-Mading,
Yang paling penting bagaimana pelaksanaannya. Kalau pelajar tawuran pasti ada sebabnya. Orang tua punya peranan penting sekali.
Jadi bukan hanya sekolah.
Selain itu penerapan hukum juga harus benar. Para politisi yang sering ribut2 dan baku hantam di DPR jangan memberi contoh kepada pelajar.

@TUKANG CoLoNG,
Yang paling penting pendidikan dirumah oleh orang tua, tidak hanya disekolah saja.

Say no to violence, Its need a real action from Government, The violence make the other peoples have a nightmare

Ferdinand said...

Seharusnya sebagai negara yg mengacu pada Bhineka Tunggal Ika kita emank gak harusnya bisa dipecah hanya karena masalah perbedaan sekalipun itu menyangkut keimanan seseorang... :D

yg aku heran sampe saat ini adalah kenapa pelajaran PKN dan AGAMA yg menurutku penting cuma diajarkan seminggu sekali dengan waktu 2 jam doank di semua sekolah? dan sampe dibangku kuliah pun hanya dijatah 2 sks? apa segitu kurang pentinya?

Semangat n Sukses slalu Sob..

ronie said...

nice info

Multibrand said...

@Smp3Lembang,
I agree, what we need is real action against anyone doing violence.

@Ferdinand,
Betapapun hebatnya teori, tetapi kalau pelaksanaannya tidak sesuai yang diajarkan maka akan menimbulkan masalah dalam masyarakat.

@Ronie,
Thank you.
