JAKARTA - The attitude of the Mayor of Solo, Gibran Rakabuming Raka, is in the spotlight of netizens when his photo with the Minister of Religion (Menag) Yaqut Cholil Qoumas was posted on Instagram, @gibran_rakabuming, Friday, March 5.

In the photo, the eldest son of President Joko Widodo is bowing and saluting the Minister of Religion, Yaqut Cholil, who is in a black car.

Gibran is seen wearing a brown batik shirt with a white mask. Meanwhile, the Minister of Religion wore a white shirt and a black mask. The Minister of Religion's hands clenched forward.

In the photo caption, Gibran wrote that he received the Minister of Religion's visit in order to coordinate the technical preparations for laying the groundwork for the Surakarta Grand Mosque (The Surakarta Grand Mosque), which is a replica of the Syeikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi.

"Gus Yaqut conveyed, God willing, there will be no obstacles in the construction of mosques and the Islamic Center, the Ministry of Religion will also ensure that the construction process until completion will continue to be monitored and guarded," said Gibran as quoted by VOI, Friday night.

Still from the caption, Gibran wrote that the construction of a replica of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque is very meaningful for the Indonesian nation, especially for the residents of Solo. This could be an effort to strengthen friendship with the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

"Tomorrow is the agenda to lay the groundwork for the construction of The Surakarta Grand Mosque, a mosque with a capacity of 10 thousand worshipers. Meanwhile, the mosque in Abu Dhabi can accommodate 40 thousand worshipers, but there are still 3 main domes like the original mosque. Please pray for your blessing," wrote Gibran.

Gibran's bow and respect received responses from netizens on Instagram. Some say, Gibran is not much different from his father, Jokowi.
