Pancasila belongs to the whole people of Indonesia, not belonging to certain groups. This was affirmed by Chairman of Committee III of the Regional Representative Council of the Republic of Indonesia, Fahira Idris during the Socialization of Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, Unitary State of Republic of Indonesia -NKRI, and Unity in Diversity (Bhineka Tunggal Ika) in Cipayung, East Jakarta on last Sunday (10/6). Fahira Idris also reminded there should be no attitude or actions of a group of people let alone supported by certain powers considered themselves the most ‘Pancasilaist’ and entitled to be interpreters of Pancasila values. He views that such an attitude will pose some distraction and threaten the unity of the Indonesian nation. Fahira Idris also explained that arrogance that considers herself or himself most Pancasilaist will be a source of commotion and seeds of disunity and this should not be allowed to happen.
Fahira Idris reminded that the debate about Pancasila has been completed one day after the Republic of Indonesia proclaimed its independence on August 18, 1945.That day was the birthday of Indonesian Constitution - the 1945 Constitution whose opening is Pancasila. He also perceived that now, Indonesian people should enjoy the strength of the five principles of Pancasila, especially ‘the social justice’ for all Indonesian people.
Meanwhile, Vice Chairman of the People's Consultative Assembly, Mahyudin, during the socialization of 4 Pillars in East Kalimantan on last Tuesday (5/6) as quoted by Antara News Agency said that it’s important to implement the fifth principle of Pancasila, the Social Justice for All Indonesian People. Mahyudin also remarked that in principle, the State should be able to create prosperity for its people. After 73-year independence, Indonesia is still facing a lot of poor people with malnutrition, not enjoying electricity, health and so on. So, he said the government should be able to solve the social problems.
Mahyudin reminds that Pancasila is the foundation of the State of Indonesia. So, without Pancasila, Indonesia can disband. Therefore, the values of Pancasila should be implemented in daily life by Indonesian people, especially its leaders and elite people. Mahyudin also explained that the socialization of the four pillars is intensively conducted so that the public better understand the ideology of the State.
