"Every child is not asking to be born in a certain family and how he will be taken care. So, as the parents who is meant to be the first educator for children, we should aware with our duties," Netty said in front of students' parents in Moslem Integrated Schools Network (JSIT) in West Java Expo 2017 at OSO Sport Center Hall Bekasi regency, Thursday (19.1.17).
That's why, Netty said, schools became a second home for children. They gave comfortable and safety feeling when getting abused in home, so they would feel helped. Because his parents who married in the earlier age did not have vission.
Therefore, in Netty's opinion with the existance of Islam Integrated School (SIT) became an anwer for parents in developing their children's characters. So there would be a generation who have Mecca's hear with Germany's mind. With the existance of SIT, it did not meant to make Islam exclusine in the society.
Netty responded to intolerant phenomenon that happened nowadays especially in West Java. West Java had faced many problems in democration life including political celebration, harmony, and tolerance that developed well. So that, the indication of intolerent towards something was not significant and had to be avoided.
"Next, tolerance and harmony in many religions congregations including races and ethnics exist when there is cordination between the autorities and others are going well. Between government, laws enforcement, religion actors, citizen figures, and citizen organization," he revealed.
Netty believed that in the future West Java could be a prototype of province in Indonesia that had peace and tolerance situation from past until now that would not be affected with the issue that spread in social media.
