Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The government will disband any anti-Pancasila mass organization, President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo said on Wednesday.

"It will be carried out step by step," Jokowi said.

The Law and Human Rights Ministry disbanded Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia (HTI) this morning. The ministry accused the Islamic group of violating Pancasila values.

"HTI's activities are in conflict with Pancasila's values," the Law and Human Rights Ministry general law administration director general Freddy Harris said.

The Government Regulation in Lieu of Law (Perppu) Number 2/2017 on Mass Organizations was issued last week. The Perppu was aimed to prevent anti-Pancasila mass organizations.
