Jakarta Indonesia is built on the values of struggle and sacrifice of all people. Clever scholars, religious leaders, ordinary people to kings, all participated in helping the Indonesian struggle. One of the aristocrats who helped bring about Indonesian independence was Yang Dipertuan Besar Syarif Kasim Abdul Jalil Saifuddin or Sultan Syarif Kasim II. He is the 12th Sultan, the Siak Indrapura Sultanate.
Sultan Syarif Kasim II was known as a king who was pro to the Indonesian struggle. One of the proofs, Sultan Syarif Kasim II stated that the Siak Sultanate was part of the territory of the Republic of Indonesia. He donated his assets in the amount of f 13 million guilders or Rp. 1.3 trillion to the Indonesian government. In addition, Sultan Syarif Kasim II also handed over the crown of the king to donate to the Indonesian government.
"History like this must be disseminated especially to the younger generation. So that they understand that an independent Indonesia is the fruit of struggle and sacrifice of all citizens. The hope is that after they know the history, this will create a sense of love for the country, "said Deputy Chairman of the MPR RI, Dr. HM Hidayat Nur Wahid MA, online to dozens of Riders on Bintan Island and Tanjung Pinang, Riau Islands.
This statement was made by Hidayat Nur Wahid at the National Figure Gathering, which took place at the Bintan Regency Traditional Malay Institute (LAM) Building, Saturday (17/10). The event was a collaboration between the MPR and Bintan Max Owner. Also attending the event were Chairman of Bintan Max Owner Taufik Anugerah Putra, as well as leaders of motorbike communities in Tanjung Pinang and Bintan.
To the Motorcycle Community in Tanjung Pinang and Bintan, the Deputy Speaker of the MPR hopes that after receiving the material on the Four Pillars of the Indonesian People's Consultative Assembly they can apply it in their daily life, especially when they are driving. Hidayat believes, if the Four Pillars of the MPR RI are present on the streets, the traffic situation and conditions will improve. There is no speeding, fights, let alone slander and verbal abuse. And that means the four pillars have been grounded, not only in the building, but also on the streets.
"We are on the road, it is actually one even though the purpose and type of vehicle are different, because we are Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. We are Pancasila, so we must behave well, respect each other and respect each other, "added Hidayat.
On that occasion, HNW also conveyed, "Indonesia is very diverse and rich. Tribes and languages are many and varied. These are all parts of God's gift. Today Indonesia is inherited by all of us. Let's keep Indonesia so that it becomes glorious, great, independent, superpower. Not a colonized, poor, and divided country ". Therefore Hidayat invites bikers to protect Indonesia from being divided.
During the question and answer session, HNW was asked for his opinion regarding the demonstration against the Job Creation Law. Demonstrations, if carried out in an orderly manner, are not anarchic, do not damage public facilities, according to HNW is a consequence of a democratic country. Therefore it should not be littered with intruders pelting police and destroying public facilities.
Hidayat believes that acts of anarchism in the demonstration against the Ciptaker Law, do not originate from workers, students, or the community. Therefore Hidayat hopes that the authorities will face it more calmly, not necessarily repressively.
Regarding the HNW Ciptaker Law, it is of the opinion that the Law contains many problematic provisions, not as simple as expected. This can be proven, among others, by the number of Government Regulations, including legal certainty. Because it is natural that many workers refuse because they are detrimental to them.
