Hosting the Islamic Games in Serang is Banten Governor Ratu Atut Chosiyah's new obsession.

The Governor of Banten province, Ratu Atut Chosiyah, fresh from playing host to a national Quranic recital contest, the 22nd Musabaqah Tilawatil Quran Nasional (MTQN) in Serang, has a new, she says

obsession

to make Banten the host of the Islamic version of the Olympic Games, for the 53 countries in the world that are regarded as Muslim.

The Islamic Solidarity Games is staged every four years, first time in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in 2005, next year in the Islamic Republic of Iran, and Indonesia seems to have won the rights for 2013, although some reports suggest Syria has, which if true would put a dampener on Ratu's grand plans.

Ratu has already contacted the Sports minister, Adiyaksa Dault, to seek his support for Banten's effort to host the Games for Indonesia in 2013.

On the MTQ National Ratu said winning wasn't important, nor was the prestige of holding the event, the main thing was that the people of Banten were encouraged to live according to Quranic precepts, both in behaviour and attitude.

No doubt she has a similar attitude to the Muslim Olympics, and added that Banten people were well known for being very religious, and this was a big advantage for the province in its efforts to host the Games. antara
