Ali Fauzi Manzi explains that terrorism is like a complicated disease.

REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Former terrorist prisoner, Ali Fauzi Manzi, who is dealing with deradicalization, said that terrorism is not an instant product born of a single decision. He explained it is the result of a long process.

"Not instantly. It takes a long process that slowly encourages one to commit violence in the name of God," Ali stated, while speaking at a public discussion on deradicalization, here, on Thursday.

He likened terrorism to a complicated disease, adding that terrorism is not single but interrelated. Therefore, the handling of terrorism case cannot be done through a single method, but it must involve many aspects, perspectives, and methodologies, he noted.

"Like a complicated disease, specialist doctors and prevention campaigns are needed by those who suffer from the disease. I am one of them," Ali, one of the Bali bombers, remarked.

He also explained that terror acts that occurred recently, such as those in Surabaya (East Java) and Riau Province, are not engineering acts but rather committed by people who were claimed as Mujahidin to carry out jihad (holy war).

Ali was one of the speakers of the discussion entitled "Breaking the Chain of Terrorism Movement, Is it Possible?: Failure and Success of Deradicalization," which was held by the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI).

A series of bomb attacks hit three churches, a city police station in Surabaya, and a flat in Sidoarjo, East Java, on Sunday and Monday, killing at least 18 people and injuring dozens.

Apart from that, in Riau Province, the police confirmed that they had shot dead four terrorists attempting to attack the Riau Police Headquarters in the provincial capital of Pekanbaru on Wednesday.
