REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA – Interior Minister Tjahjo Kumolo said, the government had not found any other organization contrary to Pancasila, except Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia. He said the disbanding should be conducted with complete evidence.

"We said from the beginning that we had not find any other organizations that clearly stated they were anti-Pancasila or anti-Indonesia. All should have complete records,” said Tjahjo in the Presidential Palace, Jakarta, on Friday (May 12).

Tjahjo insisted that the government did not find Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) to have trouble with its ideology. However, the other legal cases related to the organization were handled by the police.

"From the existing data, FPI has no problem (with ideology). Related to the other legal cases, there are police businesses," he said.

Tjahjo added that the government took firm action against any community organization contrary to Pancasila and the Constitution.

The registered organizations must believe in Pancasila and follow the regulation. “Pancasila, Indonesian Constitution, and Indonesian Republic were final. There were no any addition; there must not be any community organization’s ideology and figures to change Pancasila,” he said.
