“This activity reminded me of the story of Kartini. He is a figure who has concern about the Koran, where when people study it, they really need to understand its meaning,” said Ipuk.

Kartini's anxiety, continued Ipuk, written in a letter to one of his friends, Stella EH Zeehandelaar dated 6 November 1899.

Kartini was worried because people were taught to read the Koran, but not fully taught its meaning. This is because at that time there were still minimal efforts to translate the Al-Quran into local languages.
