100 Days of Jokowi

There are at least three ministers who have caused public controversy. Their words or policies are considered to lead to polemics.

One example is the Minister of Law and Human Rights (Menkum HAM) Yasonna Laoly. The statement made by the PDIP politician was even protested by a number of people.

Following are the statements of Jokowi’s ministers who are considered to have caused public controversy:

Minister of Religion Fachrul Razi sparked a polemic at the beginning of his office. At that time, he alluded to the issue of radicalism and trousers.

Fachrul alluded to the use of civil servant shorts. He also told me there was a BUMN official who did not sing the Indonesia Raya song.

“Not even singing, so back and forth like that. I asked, I say his name, ‘Alfan are you sick?’ ‘Ready, no sir.’ “You are sick! If you are not sick, surely you respect Indonesia Raya because you are a civil servant and you are a servant of the state. If you are disrespectful, leave you,” said Fachrul.

He said this when presenting a working vision at the Coordinating Meeting of the Coordinating Ministry for Human Development and Culture (Kemenko PMK), Thursday, October 31, 2019.

Fachrul later also said that the Cingkrang pants did not comply with uniformed rules in the government environment. He added, it would be better for civil servants to wear shorts out of government agencies if they did not follow the rules.

“Then the problem of the trousers can not be banned from the aspect of religion because religion does not forbid. But from the rules of the employee, for example reprimanded. ‘How come pants are so high? You don’t see the rules of the state?’ If you can’t follow it, come out, “Fachrul said in a high tone. poker deposit pulsa

Before this issue, Fachrul also had a time to discuss banning the veil and niqab users within the government. The statements also reaped great polemic in the country.

Fachrul is considered counterproductive. He is considered more focused on the issue of radicalism rather than his position as Minister of Religion.

But lately, he straightened out the statement and claimed to be accustomed to the pants. Fachrul stressed that he never banned the use of veils and trousers.

“I have never banned people from wearing the veil. Neither do hanging or fringed pants,” Fachrul said, November 18, 2019.

According to Fachrul, wearing a veil and trousers is not a measure of one’s piety. However, as a civil servant whose job is to serve the community, you should not wear a veil.

“Of course for civil servants whose job is to serve the community with kindness, with a friendly smile, plus in the interest of security, PNS or ASN discipline provisions, then it is better not to wear a veil. But if at home or everywhere go ahead,” he said.

The Minister of Communication and Information (Menkominfo) Johnny G Plate joined the list of Jokowi’s men who caused controversy because of his statement. Johnny wants Pornhub to be inaccessible using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). This makes Johnny pouted by various parties.

Johnny admitted, even though the Ministry of Communication and Informatics has blocked porn sites including Pornhub, internet users in Indonesia can still access with VPN.

“We have blocked, still those who use VPN can. Those who use VPN have to be taken down from there. We have coordinated via email to Pornhub to take down. They have to take it down and are now in the process,” Johnny said at Bogor Palace , Friday, December 27, 2019

Because of this statement, Johnny is considered to not understand how VPN works. Johnny was bullied by citizens because of these words.

Cyber ‚Äč‚Äčexpert, Pratama Persdha rate, it is not possible Pornhub will block the access of citizens of Indonesia who use VPN.

“Technically, pornhub will not agree to the request. Due to the way VPN works is a form of private internet network through a public network (internet), which changes the Indonesian IP server into another country IP server, according to the VPN user’s wishes,” explained Pratama via a short message to the Tekutan Liputan6.com team, Friday, December 27, 2019.

According to Pratama, whatever IP server the user chooses, the internet connection will immediately be diverted through an internet service provider (ISP). Then, the user’s ISP address is replaced with a new address, so the server will follow that address.

Therefore, he said, the Pornhub site might not block all the IPs in the VPN service involving IP servers in countries around the world.

“The request of the Ministry of Communication and Information is impossible to be granted by Pornhub, because technically it must block the IPs of many countries other than Indonesia,” he said.

Not long ago, Minister of Law and Human Rights (Menkum HAM) Yasonna Laoly was protested by a number of people. The reason Yasonna said, criminals were born because of poverty. An example area called Yasonna is Tanjung Priok.

The polemic began when Yasonna attended the 2020 Correctional Resolution at the Directorate General of Corrections in Cipinang Class IIA Narcotics Prison, East Jakarta on Thursday, January 16, 2020.

Yasonna connects crime with economic conditions. For example in Tanjung Priok which then reap protests.

“That is why more crime occurs in poor areas. Slum areas. Not in Menteng. Menteng children do not. But try going to Tanjung Priok where there are criminals. Born from poverty,” said Yasonna.

Polemic rolled. Tanjung Priok residents staged a demonstration in front of the office of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, Jakarta. Yasonna finally apologized. He felt that his statement which was now questioned was not intended to offend the citizens of Tanjung Priok.

100 Days of Jokowi – Yasonna hopes that the apology can resolve the debate which he thinks is causing confusion. He promised to find time to make friends with the residents of Tanjung Priok.

“Then it turned out that different interpretations were developing in the mass media and the wider public so that my brothers in Tanjung Priok were offended, so I made an apology,” said Yasonna, January 22, 2020.
