â€śWe are not a pressure group. There is no threat. Our movement [against lies] is merely to improve the nation,â€ť Capuchin Bishop Martinus Dogma Situmorang of Padang said yesterday at the Indonesian Bishopsâ€™ Conference (KWI) office in Jakarta.
â€śWe do not have any political motives. We do not blame the government. We are not acting like a superpower over the government,â€ť the chairman of the KWI said.
Buddhist, Catholic, Hindu, Muslim and Protestant leaders all hope the government will make some substantive efforts for the sake of peopleâ€™s welfare, the prelate added.
He said the complaints center will be used as a tool to make a larger and more fundamental movement.
â€śWe will continue to watch over the government,â€ť he maintained.
Din Syamsuddin from Muhammadiyah, the countryâ€™s second largest Islamic organization, agreed upon maintaining the momentum of their campaign.
We will keep the movement moving because â€śwe see it as the truth,â€ť he said.
Commenting on a statement by religious leaders on government lies issued on Jan. 10, he maintained that the statement was a critique.
â€śThere is no distortion in voicing peopleâ€™s concerns,â€ť he added.
