Forkopimda Inhil elements welcomed the plan to implement the istighotsah. Forkopimda elements agreed to suggest that istighotsah be carried out in all existing mosques and surau, by adjusting their capacity (not adding tents or carpets outside).
According to Forkopimda elements, the istighotsah should be led by the local Imam of the mosque. It is not allowed to invite speakers from outside the city so as not to become a magnet for community associations.
In addition, the Forkopimda element argues that there is no need to prepare logistics, if preparing for logistics efforts are made to use boxes/packs. It is strictly forbidden to provide a buffet, let alone use a tray.
