REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, TASIKMALAYA -- Prospective Vice President number 01 Ma'ruf Amin emphasized that students are always taken into account by the state. Therefore, they must play a role in the life of the nation and state.

"Santri (students of Islamic boarding schools) must realize they have a role, as they are valued and taken into account by the state," Ma'ruf remarked after attending the National Santri Day ceremony in Tasikmalaya, West Java, on Monday.

Ma'ruf stressed that the commemoration of National Santri Day offers a spirit of enthusiasm to the students to defend the Republic of Indonesia. "We want to provide a kind of stimulus to the spirit of the students. This means that the santri must have the spirit to serve the nation and country," he explained.

"Santri must have enthusiasm in addition to the required ability and competence," Amin emphasized.
