Government Optimizes to Prevent Radicalism Ahead of Election

19
The issue of radicalism has become a major highlight in the world of politics and society, especially ahead of important events such as general elections (Pemilu). 
The 2024 election in Indonesia is a crucial moment that will determine the direction and future of the country. 
However, the use of the issue of radicalism as a tool in a political context needs to receive sharp criticism.
The issue of radicalism before elections is sometimes politicized and used for certain political interests. 
In an atmosphere full of competition for power, the issue of radicalism can easily be raised to divert attention or create fear in society. 
Politicization of this issue can damage serious efforts to overcome radicalism comprehensively and objectively.
Improper understanding of the issue of radicalism can lead to stereotyping and stigmatization of certain groups. 
It is also feared that simplifying the complexity of radicalism will lead to discrimination against certain individuals or communities.
The issue of radicalism often arises from complex social and economic backgrounds. 
Ignoring these factors and focusing only on religious or ideological aspects can oversimplify the root of the problem and result in a less effective approach. 
Criticism of the issue of radicalism suggests the need for a holistic approach, which also considers social, economic and educational aspects in prevention efforts.
Excessive reporting, understanding and handling of the issue of radicalism can exacerbate fear and create a tense atmosphere in society. 
Social tensions and inaccurate perceptions of the level of threat of radicalism can disrupt national stability and security. 
So this kind of approach needs to emphasize the importance of conveying information accurately and proportionally, as well as maintaining a balance between security and freedom.
The issue of radicalism if used inappropriately can hinder people’s democratic participation in elections. 
Fear of the threat of radicalism can influence voter participation, leading to low levels of participation in elections and a negative impact on the legitimacy of the democratic process. 
This criticism highlights the dangers of using the issue of radicalism to disrupt citizens’ active involvement in political decisions.
Understanding the issue of radicalism is not only about overcoming short-term threats, but also about creating long-term peace and reconciliation in society. 
An approach that is simply repressive or hostile can prolong cycles of conflict and instability.
Understanding the issue of radicalism ahead of the 2024 Election is a call for critical thinking, balance and integrity in facing complex challenges in politics and society. 
Using the issue of radicalism as a political tool or in an inappropriate way can damage democracy, create unnecessary fear, and exacerbate social tensions.
Therefore, an evidence-based, inclusive and prevention-focused approach is the key to effectively addressing the issue of radicalism and maintaining stability and peace in society. 
In dealing with sensitive issues such as radicalism, the responsibility of political and community leaders is to uphold the values ​​of democracy, human rights and unity within a framework that is in line with common interests.
Chairman of the State Civil Apparatus Commission (KASN), Prof. 
Agus Pramusinto said that one of the challenges facing Pancasila is division due to differences in political choices, plus the spread of cases of radicalism. 
On the other hand, in the process of administering government, KASN maintains the implementation of the principles of the merit system and supervises the implementation of basic values, codes of ethics and codes of behavior for ASN.
This is also to ensure that the Pancasila ideology and national insight, as well as the function of ASN as a uniting unit of the Republic of Indonesia, are still carried out by all ASN in Indonesia. 
Agus said that he always reminds ASN to review their main duties and competencies as state servants, and avoid negative things, especially related to radical or intolerant beliefs.
An observer of national and global strategic issues, Prof Imron Cotan, is of the opinion that Pancasila has been tested by various ideological clashes, such as extreme left and extreme right, even the ideology of liberalism. 
Youth must be astute in receiving information and not swallow information or persuasion that leads to radicalism. 
A tabayyun attitude is important to ensure the correctness of the information obtained, you can ask the relevant parties who have authority or are experts.
Imron quoted Vice President KH Ma’ruf Amin’s statement urging all parties to abandon the politics of division. 
If all presidential and vice presidential candidates and other election contestants have good insight and understanding regarding this matter, then the value contained in Pancasila to reduce five-year political dynamics will remain maintained. 
This is a warning to certain groups not to try to test Pancasila’s ability to moderate differences that come from all corners.
We need to identify potential threats, deepen our knowledge and understanding and be able to develop appropriate prevention strategies. 
Therefore, it is important for the government and society to synergize with each other and focus on real threats to democracy and state security, in order to maintain a safe and peaceful 2024 election.
