TEMPO.CO, Palembang - Muslim speaker, Ustad (cleric) Abdul Somad was in Palembang City throughout the day to give spiritual speeches to employees of Pupuk Sriwidjaya (Pusri) Palembang and the local residents in the vicinity of the company office.
His recent activity in Palembang is a contrast to what happened several days earlier where he was denied entry by Hongkong immigration officials. It caused quite a stir and various responses from members of the Muslim community throughout the social media realm.
His mini-tour throughout Palembang started at the Al-Aqobah 1 mosque in the Pusri area. He gave motivational speeches for the employees there. Ustad Abdul Somad plans to continue his tour to the Aqobah 7 Mata Merah mosque and the Benteng Kuto Besak.
