The alumni reunion was attended by a number of noted figures, including presidential candidate number 02 Prabowo Subianto, Speaker of the People's Consultative Assembly (MPR) Zulkifli Hasan and Deputy Speaker of MPR Hidayat Nur Wahid. The participants not only packed the National Monument area, but also packed thoroughfares that lead from MH Thamrin to Sudirman, Gunung Sahari, Merdeka Selatan, and Agus Salim.

The organizers have estimated that some three million participants took part in the 212 alumni reunion rally. "We estimate that three million are taking part in this morning 212 Alumni Reunion, or the same number as that last year," Novel Bamukmin, the event chief organizer, said on Sunday morning.

He said the rally had no political purpose. It is basically a religious tourism and effort to uphold 'tawheed' (faith in one God).

"There is no political element. We do not allow other flags to fly, besides Merah Putih and the Tawheed flag. We do not allow party flags," said Novel.

The 212 rally alumni was established to gather people who were involved in the rally on Dec 2, 2016 to call for the prosecution of then-Jakarta governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok for blasphemy.
