KIBLAT.NET, Jakarta – 212 Mart in Tulungagung is being questioned by the Komisi C Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah (DPRD) Tulungagung. According to Purwadi, a person in charge of 212 Mart Tulungagung, DPRD stated that 212 Mart has violated the national supermarket restrictions.

“On the sudden inspection on Monday conducted by the C Commission/Komisi C DPRD, it was stated that we violate the regulations set by the local regulations/Perda, in which according to them there are certain restrictions for the nationwide supermarkets. As far as we know, during the consultation session with Dinas Perizinan, the restrictions have not been legalized yet”, he told Kiblat.net when contacted on Saturday (10/03/2018).

“Even if there is such local regulation and restrictions, we are not included in the nationwide supermarkets”, he emphasized that 212 Mart is purely an independent business of the community. Thus, it is regretted that DPRD showed a negative attitude towards the small traders by saying that they may lose out to the supermarkets.

“This is ridiculous, it is a cooperative. The small traders are prioritized here. And there is no actual problem here, it seems like they are looking for it”, he said.

He added that the C Commission of/Komisi C DPRD even threatens the closing of 212 Mart. Purwadi then responding to the threat by consulting the Dinas Perizinan.

“The other day, they threaten to close the mart. I was not there during the inspection, and there were only the employees in the mart. The next day, I seek consultation with Dinas Perizinan, they said there is no any problem and we have the permission”, he explained.

Purwadi also emphasized that from the early beginning, 212 Mart was established with the permission of Dinas Perizinan and they gave a positive feedback.

“There were no difficulties during the permission stage, Dinas Perizinan has simplified the process, and help us enthusiastically, as we have followed the procedure accordingly”.

Lastly, he explained that 212 Mart is one of the efforts by Koperasi Serba Umum Muslim Tulungagung Bangkit (KSU MTB). This cooperative, he said, is associated with the cooperative 212 center, and this is an effort to improve the economy of Muslims in Tulungagung.

Interview with Nouman Ali Khan

If you are from the youth that are suffering from fluctuating faith take a good look at what you do in your solitude, who your friends are and what your day amounts to. Where do your eyes wander? What is filling your ears? Spiritually intoxicating intake is destroying your chances at appreciating faith. There will come a time when your heart will be completely incapable of spiritual replenishment and even the mention of Allah, the afterlife or the Prophet SAW will agitate you. Allah changes the hearts but at the very least you need to change your environment.
