In the homeland, Dede warned, residents and government agencies, about the tune in addressing the various issues degrading human dignity and is still prevalent in the society.

For example, Dede said, there are still many people constant in conflict, a handful of political elites who want the seat of political power and government.

“People are fragmented into a number of political choice, vilify other couples. Edges to attack each other among supporters of different political partner,” he said.

Another issue, continued Dede, corrupt behavior is still high in the middle of the community. In Indonesia, he said, this behavior is very striking with the involvement of actors who work in the institutions that are supposed to serve the public in a professional manner and with integrity.

They consist of 1.6 million who are trying to wear, irregular wear of 1.4 million and 943 thousand people are already at the level of drug addicts. This figure makes Indonesia as one of the highest drug users in ASEAN with the level of users between the ages of 10-59 years.

On the other hand, the rate of sexual crimes tend to increase with the increasing number of victims of sexual offenders who cause injury and even death.
