La Croix-Rouge indonésienne  ne changera pas son logo, malgré la  demande exprimée par les politiciens du Parti islamique basée sur la justice prospère (PKS). Le chef de la Croix-Rouge MUA Muhammad a du expliquer que le logo actuellement utilisé par la Croix Rouge du pays a été internationalement reconnu et  est stipulé dans la Convention de Genève de 1945. “L’Indonésie a ratifié la Convention, acceptant ainsi de se conformer aux règles et règlements établis par elle, y compris l’utilisation du logo, “a dit Mr MUA.

The Indonesian Red Cross says it will not change its logo as to meet a demand voiced by politicians from the Islamic-based Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), one of its top executive confirmed on Saturday.

Head of the Red Cross Muhammad Muas said the logo currently used by the country’s Red Cross (PMI) was internationally recognized and stipulated in the 1945 Geneva Convention. “Indonesia ratified the Convention, thus agreeing to abide the rules and regulations set in it, including the use of its logo,” Muas said.

Recently PKS politicians said the Red Cross logo did not fit the country’s identity as the world’s largest-populated Muslim country. The politicians said the logo of red cross was similar to the Christian symbol of a cross and demanded a change.

Muas called the demand “baseless” because PMI was a humanitarian organization and did not affiliate with certain faith or group. “It’s a neutral logo and was picked for certain reasons but definitely doesn’t associate with a certain faith or religion,” he said.

“Besides, Indonesia is not a faith-based country and not a secular one. We uphold Pancasila [the Five Principles] as our ideology that supports our plurality,” he said.
