Friday 18 October 2019, Ustadz Abdul Somad (UAS) was refused to deliver a lecture by a group of Indonesian citizens in Berlin, Germany, which was being discussed. Even a number of prominent figures like PKS Politician Tifatul Sembiringspoke about the rejection of lectures experienced by UAS.
Through his Twitter account, the Former Minister of Communications and I nformation (Menkominfo) era of the 6th President of RI Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY), he could not understand that there were parties who refused lectures by Ustaz Abdul Somad (UAS). "Why should the UAS continue to be banned. If not agree, clarificatie and discuss it in a healthy manner. Is this attitude based on islamphobia? And in the history of the Republic of Indonesia, only the PKI (Communist Party of Indonesia) is so strongly opposed and executed the Scholars," twitted by @tifsembiring.
