JAKARTA, KOMPAS.TV – The Chief of Army Staff (KSAD) General TNI Dudung Abdurachman responded to the radicalism movement that emerged in Indonesia.
In an effort to prevent radicalism, General Dudung will order all Indonesian Army soldiers to intervene.
The former Pangdam Jaya will ask the TNI AD soldiers to the lowest level or Babinsa to be sensitive to the development of the situation.
“I will order all soldiers to be sensitive to the development of the situation regarding the extreme left and right,” said General Dudung in an interview with Kompas.id quoted on Monday (22/11/2021).
Especially, Dudung continued, to groups that try to carry out acts of radicalism.
Dudung added that he would not hesitate to implement a system like the era of President Soeharto. However, he did not explain it in detail.
“I said, if there is information, I will apply it as in the days of Pak Soeharto. The babinsa must know, even if the needle falls, he must know,” said Dudung.
