MUHAMMADIYAH.ID, YOGYAKARTA – President of Muhammadiyah Haedar Nashir wished Muslims to have a blessed Ramadan. He also strongly suggested that they don’t get back to their hometown as a part of moral responsibility and self-piety.
“For one reason, the condition isn’t possible, and the government issues a policy of prohibition ‘mudik‘ (an exodus) this year. The activity may lead to risks of the COVID-19 transmission if we aren’t disciplined,” stated Haedar on Monday (12/4).
He conveyed that not going back to our hometown is an attitude of social responsibility, moral responsibility and self-righteousness in understanding religion.
“We have to empathized with health workers and volunteers confronting the COVID-19. We also should emphasize and sympathize with people whose family members passed away during this pandemic. What we do is our kindness towards other lives,” expressed Haedar.
“Thus, we have to refrain ourselves from getting back to our hometown which may lead to the increasing of the COVID-19 transmission. This is our effort to tackle this pandemic and to raise our awareness as citizens. We have to always pray so that this pandemic can end and do responsible collective efforts,” he asserted.
