MILF mourns the death of MILF PIP Member Mahmour Estino

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) is mourning the death of Hajji Mahmour Estino, a member of MILF Peace Implementing Panel on October 25 while being treated at Sulu Hospital after he collapsed while on board a boat bound for Zamboanga. 

Hajji Mahmour devoted his life for the liberation of the Bangsamoro People from injustices and oppression. Until his death, he held the positions of Vice Presidency for Western Mindanao in the United Bangsamoro Justice Party (UBJP), the political party organized by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) as a result of the peace negotiation. 

Hajji Mahmour attended the 10th GPH-MILF Panel Meeting on October 20, 2017 in Davao City, and was his last. 

The MILF is asking the Bangsamoro people to include him in their prayers that Hajji Mahmour will be admitted to Jannatul Firdaus among the Shuhadaa. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) once said: "Whoever sincerely asks Allah for martyrdom, Allah will cause him to attain the status of martyrs, even if he dies in his bed."
