Member of Commission X DPR RI from the Gerindra faction Ali Zamroni regretted the negligence that was repeatedly made by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
Starting from the education roadmap, the loss of Pancasila and Indonesian subjects, to the disappearance of the name of the founder of Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), KH. Hasyim Asy’ari and the name of economic scientist Soemitro Djojohadikoesoemo in the History Dictionary of the Republic of Indonesia volume I. Berita Terkini
According to him, apologies alone are not enough to pay for this fatal mistake.
“They (Kemendikbud, red) only apologized as if it was just something trivial? I lightly apologized! I see this is quite fatal,” said Ali, Thursday, April 22.
The Banten legislator was also surprised by the policy discourses that were often blundered by the Ministry of Education and Culture under the leadership of Nadiem Makarim. There are many fatal but trivial mistakes about it. Berita Hari ini
“I think this, how come if you are careless many times, what’s the matter?” he said.
Most regrettably, said Ali, not only did it eliminate influential figures in Indonesia’s development, the History Dictionary actually gave rise to the name of the Indonesian communist party (PKI) figure. Berita Politik
“This is contradictory. Already wrong then contradictory too. What shouldn’t be included. This is, never mind. I think Nadiem is enough!” Concluded the Gerindra politician.
Previously, the Minister of Education and Culture (Mendikbud), had clarified the issue of not including the name of the founder of Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) Hasyim Asy’ari in the Indonesian History Dictionary Volume I.
Nadiem admitted that he never intended to erase any traces of history by not including Hasyim Asy’ari’s entry. According to him, the Indonesian History Dictionary Volume I was compiled in 2017, before he became a minister.
“To the people of Indonesia, I want to ensure that there is no intention of eliminating historical traces at all,” said Nadiem through a video broadcast on his personal Instagram account, Wednesday, April 21. Finance Solutions
Nadiem emphasized that he had ordered his staff at the Ministry of Education and Culture to perfect the preparation of the dictionary.
