Abu Bakar Bashir attempts to meet the president, and advise him.
Mujahidin Council (MMI) leader Abu Bakar Ba'asyir, with a number of other clerics in tow, arrived unannounced at the State Palace on the 22nd to hand over a letter of advice to President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. The letter contained an appeal to the president that all government policy should be based on Islamic shariah law.
Just turned up.
Ba'asyir and friends waited for 45 minutes at the palace gates until they received permission from presidential guards to enter. Upon entering they were received by presidential spokesman Andi Mallarangeng, who said his boss was too busy to meet Bashir, and that people had to make appointments if they wanted to meet the leader. kompas
Since the time of Soekarno Islamic law has been ignored, to the point where the people are suffering. The disasters which have happened are because we do not respect the law of God.
(Sejak zaman Soekarno hingga saat ini, syariat Islam ditinggalkan, sehingga akhirnya yang menderita seluruh rakyat. Bencana yang terjadi karena kita melecehkan hukum Allah.)
Later the band of travellers from the Ngruki Islamic boarding school in Central Java, who included Salim Badjri, Habib Rizieq Shihab, Abdul Rosyid, Ohan Sujana, and Muzakir, met with DPR vice chairman Zaenal Maarif. tempo
