During the conduct of Islamic Symposium organized by Madrasah Usama Ulalo held on February 1, at Mamasapano, Maguindanao, Prominent Islamic Scholar Nhorul-am Abdullah, also Peace Program Officer II of Bangsamoro Transition Commission, said “Islam is a religion of peace not a terrorist.”

“Muslims must teach peace in the community. Lasting peace is our aspiration that can only be achieved through building inclusive governance”, he added.

“Being a believer of Islam is a level that Allah told that this is the level of victory of our aspiration”, Abdullah emphasized.  

Abusama Guiamel, one of the organizers said ’’Let us help one another to do good deeds and forbid bad deeds in our community to help peace prevail in Mindanao.”  

 Prof. Esmael A. Abdula, President of Kalilintad Peacebuilding Institute (KPI) and BLMI Training Officer, said “The MILF is negotiating peace with the Philippine Government to solve the Bangsamoro Problem in Mindanao.”

“Addressing Moro Historical Injustices through passing the BTC-drafted BBL into enabling law is the best way to end decades of armed conflict in Mindanao”, Abdula added.

Abdula emphasized that the peace gains must be preserved, and sustained to achieve long lasting peace in Mindanao.

“The BBL is the legal document that could address the injustices committed against the Bangsamoro People once the Bangsamoro Political Entity is established”, Abdula further said.

MILF Political Committee, BIAF senior, and field commanders, women sector, KPI staff members Abdul aziz Talib, and Khairudin Anwar, religious sector and representative from Local Government of Mamasapano, Maguindanao attended the symposium.
