BIAF 109th Base Command holds Bangsamoro Symposium

MANGUDADATU, MAGUINDANAO- Abas Bukol, Base Commander of 109th Base Command of the Bangsamoro Islamic Armed Forces (BIAF) told members of his command, and participants to the symposium in Mangudatu town on February 19 that MILF is strictly obliging all its line agencies, and BIAF members to ‘enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong’ in the Bangsamoro communities.

“The BIAF is tasked to promote peace, and order in the communities”, Bukol said.

Bukol added: “Enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong can be a channel in seeking lasting peace in Mindanao.”

“Let us work together towards inclusive peace in Mindanao”, emphasized Bukol.

Guest speaker Professor Esmael Abdula, President of Kalilintad Peacebuilding Institute and BLMI Training Officer, said “MILF Political Struggle is a Bangsamoro people’s struggle towards establishing Bangsamoro political entity.”

“Addressing the Moro Historical Injustices is the ultimate solution to the Bangsamoro Problem”, Abdula emphasized.

“The Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) is a political document that will resolve decades of Mindanao conflict. It is the government unilateral responsibility to enact the Bangsamoro Law that is compliant to the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsaamoro (CAB),” Abdula added.

The symposium was attended by members of the BIAF National Guard Front, MILF Damakling Provincial Committee, local political leaders, religious sector, and women sector.
