VOInews, Samarinda : The Nusantara Capital Authority (OIKN) handed over a 900-kilogram sacrificial cow provided by President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) to Darussalam Mosque, located within the development site of the new capital city Nusantara.

"This Limousine cow was earlier handed over by the Presidential Palace to the OIKN on Saturday (June 15) before being delivered to Darussalam Mosque," OIKN Director of Basic Services, Suwito, noted in the authority's statement as cited in Samarinda, East Kalimantan, on Monday.

He said that the meat of President Jokowi's Qurbani cow will then be distributed to the residents of Tengin Baru Village in Sepaku Sub-district, North Penajam Paser District, where the Darussalam Mosque is located.

The official remarked that the president donated the cow in an effort to support religious activities in Nusantara and to foster a sense of togetherness on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.

"In addition to serving religious purposes, this activity can be seen as a momentum to solidify bonds between the government and people. Hopefully, this sense of togetherness will last and become our foundation in developing Nusantara," he said.

According to Suwito, the central government will provide a higher number of Qurbani animals to those residing in Nusantara in years to come.

"God willing, the residents of Nusantara will receive more cattle from the Indonesian president in the following years. A higher number of Qurbani cattle provided will increase the number of people receiving meat," he said.

Meanwhile, Chairperson of Darussalam Mosque's Eid al-Adha Celebration Committee, Imron, praised President Jokowi for donating a sacrificial cow to the region.

He expressed hope that the government would provide more Qurbani animals and continue to support religious activities in Nusantara to foster harmonious relations with locals and encourage a broader population to donate animals during Eid al-Adha//Antara - VOI
