INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Head of BNPT Comm. General Suhardi Alius gave insight into radicalism in a public lecture to 4,000 new students of Bogor Agricultural University (IPB), Tuesday (08/14/2018)

"The younger siblings of new students must be really vigilant with negative radicalism that can damage the unity of the Indonesian nation. As a young generation, new students become vulnerable targets," the BNPT head was quoted as saying in a press release.

Komjen Suhardi Alius explained vividly about threats and patterns of spreading terrorism, especially those targeting the younger generation.

He appealed to new students not to be afraid to report suspicious activities or activities that lead to radicalism or intolerance to the campus.

"This is important because early prevention can be done if students participate proactively to counter the spread of radicalism and terrorism," he said.

The head of BNPT said that management in higher education must have a special pattern of handling in preventing radicalism so that it is not easy to enter and spread on campus.

IPB Chancellor Dr. Arif Satria realized the dangers of radicalism that threatened the campus environment. According to him, new high-potential students are the target of the spread of radicalism and terrorism.

"Therefore, we invite the Head of BNPT to give lectures to new students, not students who have already wanted to graduate because this is a potential and rather vulnerable student group," Arif said.

The public lecture was a series of activities for the New Student Campus Introductory Period 55 of 2018.
