JAKARTA – A video has gone viral on social media, which depicts a group of people removing the church’s label on aid to the victims of the Cianjur Earthquake. This was regretted by many parties because it was considered an act of intolerance.
Here are 5 facts from the incident.
1. Ridwan Kamil Murka
West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil regretted the action to revoke the identity label of the tent aid provider for the Cianjur, West Java earthquake victims. The action was carried out by unscrupulous residents in the evacuation tents.
“This disaster did not come selectively and certainly affected everyone, all parties and all groups in our beloved Cianjur,” Ridwan Kamil said via his Instagram account, @ridwankamil as quoted by Okezone
2. Disasters don’t come picky
According to Kang Emil, his nickname, those who help with disasters are not picky. They come from all sides, from all classes, groups, whatever their beliefs or religions.
“The erection of flags, banners, billboards, stickers from aid providers is a natural thing, because perhaps it is part of accountability reporting to donors who entrust aid to them,” he stressed.
3. Ask the Police to Follow Up
Ridwan Kamil emphasized that the 2nd Precept of Pancasila, Just and Civilized Humanity must be upheld properly and practiced wisely. Humanitarian aid must not be tainted in the slightest by elements of group hatred.
“I have asked the police, especially the West Java Regional Police Chief, to follow up on this so that it does not happen again in the future. Hatur Nuhun,” he said.
4. Unfortunate Many Parties
Mustasyar Central Board of Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU) KH Said Aqil Siroj also regretted the incident. According to him, disaster does not look at a person’s identity.
“It is deeply regretted. Disasters don’t look at a person’s religious identity,” said Said.
In his upload, Kang Emil also included a video of the revocation of the church’s identity label as a provider of tent assistance by unscrupulous residents. So that it reaps various comments from netizens.
“Agreed, Mr. Governor… it’s very unfortunate… I hope we can be wiser and more open minded… thank you, Mr. Governor,” wrote the account @hanan_attaki.
“As a result there is no clear punishment for intolerant perpetrators. The donation is willing, but the name of the giver is removed because it is from nonis. That name is hypocrisy !!,” wrote @ krisna69.mukti.
