"So, West Java, led by Kang Emil (West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil) and my deputy, want their people to become world champions and the hereafter, physically and mentally," he added.
According to Uu, there are four criteria for the West Javanese Champion inward. First, the people of West Java have a strong faith and devotion, so that the aqeedah is not swayed by the situation and conditions.
"Secondly, after the aqeedah is strong, the sharia is also strong. Where there are four sharia: ubudiyat, munakahat, muamalat, and jinayat. Great worship, great household, great economy, and obedience to the government is also great," he said.
"Third, the practice is great, that is the practice of Ahlisunnah Waljamaah. Then four, great in the field of harokah, its movements, so that harokah is identical to barokah."
"This can all be successful, if there is togetherness that is assisted by the kiai and scholars, so that West Java Champion Inner can be successful. Therefore, on this occasion I want to be together with the Attaqwa Foundation's extended family," he added.

On this occasion, Uu congratulated the graduates who had become scholars. He also thanked the academics of STAI Attaqwa Bekasi for helping the government in producing West Java educated Human Resources (HR).
"On behalf of the Regional Government of West Java Province, I congratulate the graduates and we also thank the Attaqwa Foundation for helping the government - both in the field of human development as a whole, printing people who have imtaq and science and technology," he said.
"This is the foundation's contribution to the government and the community, so that it will ease us in the full development of the people of West Java," he added.
Uu also advised the scholars to have the responsibility to maintain their aqeedah and religion as Muslims. In addition, he wants graduates and young people currently struggling to apply religious values ??in the life of the nation and state.
"What is meant by fighting for religious values ??in the nation is cultural, moral values, religious values ??that we must fight for, what is meant for fighting for religious values ??in the nation is structural," he said.
"For example, when an alumni of Attaqwa becomes an official, has authority, has an area, then that authority, that area is to fight for religion," he added.
