HII holds Educational Peace Advocacy

The Hikmatul Ijtimaaey Institute (HII) held Educational Peace Advocacy inside its own compound last August 3, 2017.

Muslimin Abdul, School Principal and one of the founding members of HII said, “This activity is the first advocacy conducted by HII attended by unexpected great number of participants.”

“We thank you very much for your presence,” added Abdul.

“This advocacy is an initiative of HII with the aim in view of strengthening the awareness, understanding and support of teachers, parents, concerned communities and all participants in promoting quality education through preparing the Bangsamoro children and equip them with appropriate knowledge, skills and good attitude as they grow older,” explain Abdul.

“Also, this activity aims at winning over the strongest support of the entire barangay of Muti, Guindulungan, Maguindanao and all its neighboring localities to maintain and sustain peace and protect the HII from all forms of extremism, radicalism and terrorism from any individual, group or organization to ensure the provision of quality education to our pupils,” Abdul further explained.   

“Let us make the HII not just center of quality education but center of sustainable peace,” Saiden Antok, MPAIM, HII President said.

“It is because education and peace are inseparable as there can be no quality education if we cannot sustain peace and sustainable peace is unreachable if we fail to educate correctly our children,” hinted Antok.                     

“The activity was attended by important personalities from both the Government of the Philippines and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front,” said Engr. Rasul Piang, HII Chairman.

“We indeed thank them for their positive response to our invitation because their attendance with their commitment of supports strengthen our advocacy to sustain peace in our community while protecting the HII against anybody, group or organization from all kinds of extremism, radicalism and terrorism,” added Piang.
