There are no place for laziness and various negative behaviors,” she said.
Islam and Indonesian Muslim community in the future, she continue, bear the responsibility in maintaining the implementation of moderate Islamic values in the midst of the lives of its people.
Various Muslim-majority countries, she explained, experiencing difficulties in building a harmonious citizenship life. Conflict and violence continue to decorate the daily lives of its citizens.
