The Surakarta City Government held a Semanggi Bersholawat, led directly by Habib Syech bin Abdul Qodir Assegaf in commemoration of the 74th Independence Day of the Republic of Indonesia. The event which was held at Losari Field, Semanggi, was attended by thousands of worshipers who came from Solo and outside Solo, Monday (8/26/2019). The Mayor’s Expert Staff for Social Affairs and Human Resources, Tamso who attended the Semanggi Bersholawat said Semanggi Bersholawat for the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia (NKRI) will be branding Solo as a sholawat city. The city of Sholawat is not merely an expression, but also a prayer and hope that the city of Solo will get the blessing of grace and guidance from God. “Hopefully the Solo people starting from RT, RW, village to sub-district can civilize their homes. So that the City of Solo will be secure, peaceful, safe and comfortable in a cultured life to create a 3WMP (Waras, Wasis, Wareg, Mapan dan Papan) community,” Tamso said.
