TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Muhadjir Effendy, Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs, has invited the people, including the younger generation, to interpret and practice the values contained in the nation's ideology, Pancasila.

Pancasila has faced tests many times, but it has continued to succeed in maintaining its existence and national integrity, he explained while leading a Pancasila Sanctity Day ceremony at SMA Negeri 2 Mengwi public high school on Saturday.

"That is why the Indonesian nation is obliged to commemorate the Pancasila Sanctity Day in order to understand, interpret, and implement the values of Pancasila as well as possible," he said.

In his speech, he explained that the commemoration of Pancasila Sanctity Day every October 1 holds a very deep meaning in the Industrial Revolution 4.0 era.

"We are entering a new era that never happened before, but more importantly, I ask the students to uphold and live the meaning of Pancasila," he remarked.

According to Effendy, there are six dimensions of the Pancasila that need to be applied to unite Indonesia: faith in God, unity in diversity in the global environment, independence, cooperation, critical thinking, and creative reasoning.

"The students (are expected to) understand, live, and translate the noble guides in daily life," he said.

Literacy in the current dynamic era is crucial, he emphasized and advised the students to read more books and develop the ability to comprehend reality in real life.

Saturday’s ceremony involved hundreds of students and ceremony officers wearing traditional Balinese clothes. After the ceremony, Minister Effendy planted durian trees on the school’s grounds as part of the movement to plant 10 million trees across Indonesia.

Meanwhile, on a separate occasion, Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal, and Security Affairs, Mahfud MD, said that Pancasila has always been the agreed state ideology of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI).

"Pancasila is often tested and opposed, but it always wins. That is the meaning of the mighty Pancasila," he remarked.
