Money that Burns Through All
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The call to fight corruption is sounded everyday. The President has even declared himself commander in the war against corruption.
At a recent breaking of the fast with the public, Chair of the Constitutional Court (MK) Mahfud MD spoke about combating corruption.
In his sermon, he emphasized the importance of seeking prosperity, honestly and legally. "Fortune that is halal is important, because stolen money is hot to the touch. It will make life uneasy and difficult to live," said Mahfud at MK Building, Wednesday, August 8, 2012.
People leading a corrupt life cannot sleep well at night. "People who live from the proceeds of corruption, will have an uncomfortable life," he said. For example, when there is a knock on the door in the night, they will think it is KPK. "But actually, itís just the neighbor," he said.
Therefore, he requested MK staff to earn a living honestly and legally. Children who are brought up with honest money will be great children. On that occasion he awarded scholarships to elementary, junior high and senior high school children of MK employees who excelled in school. Children of both permanent and outsourced employees who were achievers, were given a scholarship. The amount was not announced. "Obviously the money is legal, from MK employee cooperative," he said.
