Prof Nasih insists that every religion should be a medium for achieving goals that prioritise justice. “Religion should be a medium for us to achieve noble goals, the key is how we push for justice. Because everyone has rights,” he said.

According to him, as a people, it is necessary to act fairly to anyone regardless of background or religion. “We have to act fairly with anyone, with our friends, our sisters, our family, whoever it is. Even with people who are different religions to us,” he added.

Head of the R&D and Diklat Agency of the Ministry of Culture of RI Suyitno also gave a statement regarding the campus as an entity that cannot be doctrinated. Instead, the campus is a crucible of religious diversity.

“The campus is an entity that cannot be doctrinated, we must provide a space for discussion regarding the ways of religious moderation,” he said.

Suyitno's continued campus was a major milestone in the process of religious moderation and religious universalism in a humanizing way. Because that's the most real thing.

“In our opinion, the most essential of religious moderation and religious universalism is humanizing people, and the campus is a major milestone,” he said.
