The government is seeking to dissolve Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia because its ideology runs counter to Pancasila. Police have evidence that this hardline group plans to use the military to establish an Islamic state in 2018.
Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia is targeting university students. Even some high schoolers have joined this hardline Islamic organization.
A CCTV camera at the home of Novel Baswedan on Jalan Deposito T, Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, recorded the movements of a heavy-set man who knocked on his door on the afternoon of April 5.
