This diversity can be a tremendous force, but it can also be a deadly threat to humanity and the way of being a state in Indonesia.

People who understand their religion’s fundamental rigidly can rise a harmful radicalism, likewise if religion is freely and uncontrollably understood till they become a secular man.
