TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA – Vice President Jusuf Kalla on Saturday (11.10.2018) at the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education (Kemenristekdikti RI) at the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education, Senayan, Jakarta.
During the speech, Jusuf Kalla, also known as the Chair of the Indonesian Mosque Council (DMI), touched the state of the mosque in Malaysia and Indonesia.
He said the mosques in Malaysia were mostly built by the state, so all activities included uniform sermons.
"Therefore, the opening of the Sermon in Malaysia always prays for the king. In Indonesia (where we pray for president), they always criticize the president, and now it is a danger," Kalla said.
While in Indonesia, all the mosques except the Istiqlal Mosque are independently managed by the community.

"So, in countries like Malaysia, the Middle East, all employees in the mosque, Marbot mosques are civil servants. We are different, all people," Kalla said.
By running the community, JK said, Indonesia is known as a generous country that helps build a mosque.
"That's why the community belongs to her, because one of them is being questioned yesterday, in this world, Indonesia is the most noble country, we always go to the mosque to make money for charitable purposes." There is a love box outside where we have a charity box , we have a charity box, so generous, not generous, must be generous, and if not, who will take care of the mosque, "explained Jusuf Kalla.
