At the beginning of the activities, there are new children who follow the activities in the dream house. He is named Nadia who is now in seventh grade in one of Yogyakarta’s high schools. He came deliberately to talk to him about his problems at school with his friend. I just enjoy it for daring to say this with me personally. At that time, I chose not to take care of other things or to accompany other children, so Nadia can tell a comfortable story without having to be covered or feared. Because her aunt had already told me about this and asked for advice so that Nadia would not want to leave school.
Nadia is a student who embraces Islam but she chooses not to veil because she thinks she will wear it after feeling internally and mentally. She does not want to wear the hijab but is still out of order and behaves badly. Nadia thinks that she is still learning to understand religion, so she can not be forced to wear a headscarf despite being Muslim. He also said that despite not wearing the hijab, he still fulfills obligations as followers of Islam such as prayer, al-qur’an reading, fasting and so on. He does not want to be hostile to anyone either. He wants to be friends with anyone, regardless of the religion of others. Yes, this is how Nadia was born of an Islamic family and was given the freedom of her family to wear the hijab or not, that’s her right.
Introduction to Nadia I started with her and her religion because it was about what was going on between her and her friends. It has public or public schools with the option that there is no compulsion for Muslim students to wear the hijab. But unfortunately, he receives gossip from his classmates or his closest group. And now, he does not feel comfortable at school, even some teachers who isolate him so indirectly.
At the beginning of Nadia high school he has a small group of 7 people. All his friends are women and are Muslim. They wear the hijab and Nadia becomes the only child who does not wear the hijab. Nadia never questioned her or felt inferior. However, the day has grown the day his closest friends started commenting on him as “Nad, you are Islam does not wear the hijab”, “Nad, you should wear the headscarf do not be aurat”. He always replied, “I do not want to wear the headscarf, but the outside is still often detached, later, if I’m ready, I’ll use the hijab.” Her friends did not arrive there, when Nadia remained adamant not to wear the hijab, he started to stay away even in the urge of all his personal life.
The number of students in her strange class now makes her sit on her own bench without a friend. He used to have a companion, but since the incident at the top of his friend who is not in the group who was not in the nearest group was told to move with another friend . From that moment she was very upset, Nadia thought if her friend was away because she was not wearing a veil? He himself was confused to answer it. In the classroom, he felt very uncomfortable. In fact, he’s always alone wherever he goes, like sports, in the cafeteria, or just chatting with his friends.
One day he was sitting in front of his own classroom, he was reprimanded by a male class brother who was also a member of OSIS. Apparently, Nadia became her sighting because he was often alone. Finally Nadia tells the story to her class sister and gives her a global advice in Nadia’s class. Unfortunately, this makes her more hateful by her friends earlier. The unpleasant words more often, he received as “Nadia, you sukannya ngadu ya”, “from where veiled dong”, “you are diingetin should be seneng”. This is further aggravated with one of his teachers who also publicly rebuked him why he was veiling like his friend.
Nadia is tired of things that happen at school and that should be a comfortable place to learn anything. In fact, he never posted a picture of his family on Instagram and that too is a problem for his friend. His friend immediately commented on Instagram “Nad went out in your family wearing the hijab just your brother yes”. Do not stop in social media only, tomorrow will also continue in the real world. Nadia began to get upset, why not enough at school alone, why until her family is involved in the course. Finally, he fought himself, in other words “force” to wear the hijab at school. One day, two days finally his friend does not comment. She was relieved. But soon after, one of his friends saw Nadia play outside not wearing the hijab. It became a new problem, Nadia finally confused. He tried to tell the story with his family, but he did not get a complete answer.
Nadia even wanted to leave school, but she was banned by her family. Finally, her aunt tells her to come to the activity in the dream house, so she does not feel that she has no friends. Honestly, myself, at that moment, I retain the confusion to make my comments comprehensible. Considering that I had myself lived and while Nadia told me that I had to endure the rage of my memory when I was a kid. As a volunteer, I have to be able to act more wisely to make children think and behave better.
From Nadia’s story, tolerance, courtesy, mutual respect must be taught from childhood. This is not a trivial matter, but it will have a major impact on our country. If from childhood children are good to generalize like that, it will be this country. Indonesia The country Bhinekka Tunggal Ika does not belong to any particular religion, tribe, race or culture. Everything belongs to Indonesia in which various cultures, races, tribes, religions we must learn to keep. If you have to choose from different varieties, choose without having to degrade what is in other people.
It’s time for parents to introduce various religions, cultures, tribes, races since childhood and not a burden for school alone. If this is left to many children who feel uncomfortable and choose to leave school and are no longer eager to realize his dream ..
