“The speakers will be from government elements, the business world, all the general chairmen of parties whose representatives are in the DPR RI, community organization leaders, intellectuals, and others,” said the man who was familiarly called Buya Anwar.

Bangka Belitung Governor, Erzaldi Rosman as the host of KUII, had previously committed to prepare the Muslim congress event as well as possible.

According to him, the KUII activities will also be enlivened with seminars and actors associated with halal and religious education in Indonesia.

“So, in addition to the meeting of the ulemas, the event will also be enlivened with halal seminars and exhibitions and religious education exhibitions,” Erzaldi said.

Some time ago, Erzaldi had also visited the MUI Office in Jakarta in order to prepare for the KUII event. Erzaldi said he and the people of Babel wanted to make Babel a territory that was familiar with ulema. (T/RE1)
