Otto Iskandardinata and the Dutch Spy
Something is fascinating about being a member of the City Council in Pekalongan. Oto Iskandar di Nata (Si Starling Harupat) is famous as a person who dares to defend the truth. Therefore, he and two of his friends from BU, Darmosoegito and Kartosoebroto, along with Fadhol from the Indonesian Islamic Union Party, were among those blocked by the Dutch East Indies Government. That is, if one day something happens in Pekalongan, then they must be held accountable. The four people were considered dangerous, so whenever they held a meeting, they were constantly spied on by the PID (Politieke Inlichtingen Dienst) or the Dutch East Indies Secret Police at that time.
Once upon a time, Oto Iskandar di Nata and his three friends had a meeting supervised by a PID member. Then all the PID members were invited to participate. As it turned out, he had just realized that the meeting held by Oto Iskandar in Nata and his friends was discussing the interests of the community, not personal interests, let alone inciting the people as is usually alleged. And since then, the PID member quit his job and joined BU.
