After 6 months of being urged by officials, all the 25 alleged terrorist group members have finally sworn allegiance to the Indonesian ideology called Pancasila. This means Unity In Differences.

“They swore allegiance to our official ideology at the Denpasar Police Department Office on Saturday (23/4). It was witnessed by officials from the Anti-Terrorism Special Force and the Head of Denpasar Police Department Office,” said the police on Sunday (24/4).

The activity was also attended by officials from Islamic organizations such as Nadhlatul Ulama and Gerakan Pemuda Ansor.

The police explained that several alleged group members of NII are still in Bali, so the authority will keep conducting investigations as part of the terrorism anticipation program.

Which country/organization keeps financing these terror groups? I fail to understand how terror serves anyones religious goals. A ‘ certain religion’ needs a reformation to clarify who gets to wear the big hat on festival days.

Lmao, inviting the Wolves amidst the Sheep. A terrorist will never change, is in their blood.

@Wayan Bo, densus 88 has been the best anti-terror task force in the region. They take this matter seriously and to leave no stone unturned. The terrorists can run but they cannot hide.
