INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Principal Secretary of the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) Marsda TNI Asep Adang Supriyadi invited students to actively participate in preventing widespread radicalism in the campus environment.

The way is by not engaging in radical groups while also being aware of, identifying, and reporting if they find indications of the spread of radical understanding in the campus environment.

"If there are symptoms of radicalism on campus, please do not be afraid to report to lecturers, chancellors or other campus parties," said Asep Adang, before 450 new students of Dirgantara University Marshal Suryadarma (Elementary), in Jakarta, Thursday (6/0 / 2018)

He appealed to the campus to report to the BNPT if it received a report or found indications of radicalism on its campus, so the BNPT could take preventive measures so as not to develop further.

The former commander of Halim Perdanakusuma Air Base explained the stages of radicalism that started from intolerance to the individual or group being a jihadist.

 He also explained about the grouping of terrorism consisting of core groups, militants, sympathizers and supporters. In order to make it easier for students to understand, in the general lecture, Asep Adang also played several videos that depicted the process of radical understanding of terrorism into the community, even to children.

Chancellor of the Element of the TNI Marshal (Ret.) Potler Gultom said that his party invited BNPT as an effort to prevent it, so that radical terrorism did not spread in its campus environment.

"So, from the beginning, students already know what they have to do and what they should avoid," said the former commander of the Indonesian Air Force Sesko.
