Previously, Chairman of the Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU) Executive Board, Said Aqil Siradj, once shared his experience of performing Friday prayers in a number of mosques, one of which was a state-owned company. Said Aqil found that there were still mosques where the contents of the lecture contained swear words.

Said Aqil asked the National Police Chief General Listyo Sigit Prabowo to follow up. For Said Aqil, if this condition is allowed to worry, there will be the spread of radicalism.

"Oh yes sir, in this mosque, this mosque is mainly in state-owned enterprises, oh my, if the sermon is Friday, not he said, I have heard it myself, sir, have heard it myself. Gus Dur is stupid, Said Aqil, Jokowi is stupid, that's Masyaallah. What is a Friday sermon like that, "said Said Aqil, quoted from the Youtube account 164 Channel - Nahdatul Ulama, Friday, January 29.

In a meeting with the National Police Chief, Said Aqil also detailed several mosques that had been the location for the insulting lecture.

"(The lecture) was at the BUMN (mosque) in Telkomsel, at Telkom, at PLN, at Pertamina, not at Pertamina central (but) at Pertamina Patra. At Pegadaian here also next door. So why is it allowed. Like that," he said

"Not to mention the flow of funds from Baznas, where did they go? Have a look. Now, Mr. Noor Achmad (Chairman of Baznas) is doing clean-up. Maybe someone will go to ISIS too later," he said.
