Suara.com – Deputy Chairman of Commission III DPR RI from the Nasdem Party Faction, Ahmad Sahroni, said that the series of attacks by both terrorists and suspected terrorists that occurred in succession recently was a declaration of open war for Indonesia.
Sahroni said the terrorists were clearly challenging the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) through acts of terror, especially at the Police Headquarters, Wednesday (31/3) afternoon.
“Looking at today’s events, and several incidents in the past, it is clear that this is a symbol of the challenge and open war by terrorists for the Republic of Indonesia. We cannot underestimate it anymore. Because clearly, these terrorists did not play games in their actions that attacked directly at the police center , namely the Police Headquarters, “said Sahroni to reporters, Wednesday (31/3/2021).
With regard to a series of acts of terror in less than a week, Sahroni urged the National Police and the National Counterterrorism Agency (BNPT) to immediately uncover, trace and destroy terrorist networks in Indonesia.

Previously, the Chairman of Commission III of the DPR Herman Hery urged the National Police to thoroughly investigate the terrorism network in Indonesia, following the acts of terror that took place at the Police Headquarters, Jakarta.
Herman said the two recent acts of terror had become an emergency signal for the National Police, BNPT and BIN.
“The arrests carried out by suspected terrorists in recent times have not been effective in investigating potential acts of terror,” Herman told reporters, Wednesday (31/3/2021).
Herman asked that the intelligence function be strengthened in overcoming the problem of terrorism.
