INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Senior researcher from the Center for Political Research of Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) Professor Siti Zuhro considered social media in the country not yet reflect the personality and noble values ​​of the nation.

Claiming seriously watching social media homeland since 2013, Siti Zuhro said in Jakarta, Friday (19/1/2018) social media filled with blasphemy, with languages ​​that are not obscene and rude, no respect to others.

"This word is the expression of our personality about what is in our heart," she said.

According to her, this is a serious issue that requires the attention of all parties because it concerns the dignity of the nation.

"The dimension of the second principle of Pancasila is not attached to us, and the values ​​that exist in this second principle are not at all attached to our society," she said.

Social media is getting far from enlightening as widespread fake news or hoax and mutual destructive actions.

According to her, there are several things that need to be done to nourish social media. The first is to educate the intelligent and polite people in their activities in social media.

"There is a sense of shame if the words are exaggerated," said holders of doctoral degrees in political science from Curtin University Australia as reported by Antara.

Furthermore, Siti Zuhro said, there needs to be clear and strict legal rules and law enforcement must be done consistently indiscriminately.

According to her, the community does actions that are less praiseworthy in social media, such as blasphemy or spreading hoax, because law enforcement is still perceived as weak, the law is judged to be pointed down bluntly upwards.

"They are becoming increasingly insulting because they assume the law in this country is relaxed because the rules are less assertive, so they feel there is no legal certainty, our society does not feel any legal attachment," she said.

No less important, according to Siti Zuhro, people need exemplary. According to her, it is difficult to expect people to practice the noble value of the nation if at the same time the figures are expected to give exemplary just behave and behave otherwise.

"I have repeatedly said that we need a role model, whether it is our leader in the bureaucracy, in politics, in the business world, of the characterized figures, it does not appear," she said.
