MAYOR Aditya Mufti Ariffin welcomed the Haul pilgrims in Banjarbaru for the 18th Grand Haul of Syekh Muhammad Zaini Abdul Ghani or Guru Sekumpul in Banjar Regency, Thursday (26/1). It is planned that the event will be attended by Vice President KH Ma’ruf Amin.

The South Kalimantan Police and the Banjar Police deployed 1,200 joint personnel to secure this Guru Sekumpul Grand Haul. This year’s haul is predicted to attract more pilgrims as it will be held for the first time after two years of being canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In order to provide food for the pilgrims, thirty public kitchens have been opened in three districts in the Regency. The kitchens are staffed by 5,442 volunteers who will be cooking 63 cows to provide tens of thousands of rice packages to the pilgrims.
