PAPUADAILY –Personnel of the Pamrahwan Task Force Battalion RK 751/VJS Pos Kotis led by the Task Force Commander (Dansatgas) Lt. Col. Inf. Dedy Dwi Cahyadi held the Eid al-Adha prayer 1442 H/2021 AD with the Muslim community at the Al-Aqsho Mosque, Papua’s Central Mountains, Tuesday (20/7/2021) ). Dansatgas conveyed the presence of the TNI Task Force here to help and serve the community.

Acting as Iman and Khatib is Ustaz Adnan. In his speecs, Adnan conveyed that the sacrifice during Eid al-Adha has a long history.

The suggestion for sacrifice began when Prophet Ibrahim A.S received an order from Allah SWT to sacrifice his son, Prophet Ismail A.S. With the grace of Allah SWT, the slaughter of Prophet Ismail was then replaced with a goat. Since then Muslims are encouraged to sacrifice.

After performing the Eid prayer, personnel of the Kotis Satgas Pamrahwan Yonif RK 751/VJS assisted the Walesi District community in carrying out the slaughter of 5 cows in the courtyard of the Al-Aqsho Mosque. It was seen that the Walesi Tribe Community Leader H. Abu Hanifa Asso was present.

“Thank you very much for the enthusiasm of the TNI Task Force personnel who worked hand in hand with the Walesi community in attending and making the series of Eid al-Adha 1442 activities successful,” said H. Abu Hanifa Asso. ***
