Tentang anak-anak pondok pesantren yang dilarang membaca koran/majalah dan
menonton TV, dulu saya pernah dengar. Di ponpes yang agak modern, hanya pada
waktu-waktu tertentu mereka boleh membaca media dan menonton tv.
Yang dipertanyakan: apakah larangan itu perlu? Bukankah membaca media juga
termasuk aktivitas yang positif?
