wow.! tomb burst

On Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 22:30 and then, reported in some newspapers that there was an explosion at the shrine which contains one of the characters Sumenep king, one of the descendants of the 13th king of Paku Nata Patrician. It is still not known for sure the cause of the explosion that resulted in the tomb was destroyed. This tomb is in the cemetery Kings Sumenep, in the Hall of Asta Tinggi (Cuba west), Kebonagung Village, District Sumenep, Madura.

Time of the incident, according to witnesses who wrote in the news quite a loud explosion sound mind and sound until the next village which is about one kilometer. When you hear the explosion, local people immediately find the source of the sound. Apparently when searched source explosion, no smoke or anything suspicious in the area of the tomb. But citizens and the caretaker saw a tomb made of ceramic marble tombstone was shattered.

tomb explode

One caretaker Asta Tinggi, Sumenep are also descendants of the palace then conclude that it belongs to the category of supernatural explosion. Seeing the bodies who are in the tombs, many people may also assume because something has happened mystical persona deceased who was tutor, derivative kings and leading nobles in that area. Furthermore it can be expected that many people will come to see and visit to the tomb after the explosion to see. The location next tomb flooded with people who want to see the condition of the tomb. In addition to ordinary citizens, many of them employees of Sumenep regency thronged the grave site that could make a scene the day after the incident. They want to know the certainty of the location of the grave that exploded and has never happened so far. Many people who then link the incident with the other things that are expected to occur in the future. In fact, according to a visitor often if there is a strange thing that happened in the location of Asta Tinggi usually always be associated with the leadership of the country as well as regents. 

Tomb of the burst
Of the police themselves after visiting and conducting investigations, it concluded there was no element of sabotage or explosion bersumberkan of explosives / explosive and just an ordinary natural events. Analysis of the city police station Sumenep mention that it is purely natural events so there is no problem to be studied further. This is also because there is uncertainty information of the number of witnesses who were in High Asta complex is being asked by the police. Several witnesses who were asked including gatekeeper and traders who used to be at the location also can not explain the events that happened in detail. Of the fact that there is a form of debris from the explosion in the form of ceramic cupola uncovered tomb. No trace explosives spills or other combustible materials around the tomb. 

I was actually not a forensic expert and also have never been to the scene, but seeing the news was moved to provide analysis. I agree that this is a common natural occurrence. So I write pure analysis is only based on the news and the photos alone. True or not, wallahu knows best. Can be discussed further.

Tomb made of ceramic material or marble rocks possibility prepared grout (the joints between the tiles with cement) meeting. Furthermore, because the heat of the scorching sun outside for some time, there will be expansion of air in the soil beneath the ceramic. This heat can indeed reach the tomb with quite strong because it is in the open, especially in the tomb was made a kind of a tin roof to shade the tomb. It is added in January of this difference in temperature during the day and night is quite large. In the daytime, I can estimate the temperature in the region is relatively high as possible up to more than 35 degrees Celsius. Of symptoms expansion of air in the cupola of this tomb and could not get out, then certainly the will accumulate. Having reached a certain critical amount, at night when the cold air outside into physical symptoms will occur where the air space expands it pushes out. When the ceramic composition that there be not hold anymore it will be broken ceramics and because the effect was short then of course what happens is going to process such material exploded. Of the effects of the explosion is known tombs broke, broken tile floor and soil debris scattered.

Construction tomb exploded

This phenomenon is actually common in new home tile floor. When new people build houses and then install tile or ceramic tile. At the bottom is usually given a taste of sand base. Often the sand is added less dense and contains a lot of air. Then tile or ceramic mounted and often bricklayer installing tiles with grout to cover the space in between the tiles with cement dough tightly and strong. In this condition is good water from the top of the ceramic will not go down through these ceramics interrupted, but also there is the effect that the air which may expand under the ceramic can not get out. After experiencing relatively hot air condition for some time, it is possible the accumulation of air under the tile. Situation that may occur is when the connection between the ceramic grout strong but on the other hand glued ceramic sand to become loose. Such conditions lead to the floor becoming bloated up. When trampled or can also occur in the event of a high enough temperature difference under the floor and on the floor then there are symptoms such as blast process. Perhaps for this situation can be said to be a small explosion process, but often this process will surprise people.

For the explosion in the tomb that according to witnesses said to produce a fairly loud noise and sounds from afar. I study it from another aspect. To note that the tomb is located on a hill and the relative has a height slightly above the other regions in the surrounding areas. In January it was in the region where daytime temperatures are very high and it should be at night is relatively low. When this natural weather causes the expansion of hot air under the tomb that seemed recently renovated, then the ongoing accumulation of air and gas. At night it is very possible expansion unbearable by the ability of the ceramic in the cupola, the result would be breaking the ceramic and ongoing expenses of air. Effects ceramic tableware and hot air mixing with the outside air so may produce explosive sound. Moreover, it is held at night where possible activity around it's not so much of course will produce a sound that feels hard and can reach more distant regions. When the explosion occurred during the day may have not felt hard and it does not sound to much.

So hopefully this description is able to provide answers to the tomb explosion phenomena that occur in Sumenep Madura. The hope of course is that we can always strive to keep our thoughts and beliefs of the things that might be classified as idolatrous.
