Presidential candidate pair Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno held their largest open rally at Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Stadium, Central Jakarta on Sunday, which was met with criticism from senior politician Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, who called it "too exclusive" as it was dominated by Islamic activities.
The political stage at the stadium became a site for mass prayers. Tens of thousands of people shouted Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest) repeatedly during the event that presented a number of Muslim figures. The event started very early at 3 a.m., followed by a mass dawn prayer, zikir (chanting), munajat (whispered prayer) and Quranic tilawah (recital).
