    Filipino Muslims laud peace pact

     
    MEMBERS of the Ilagan Muslim Association (IMA) in Ilagan City, Isabela Province, on Thursday expressed their support to the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB) between the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the government of the Philippines.
    The Muslim group expressed optimism that the signing of the peace deal in Malacang will put an end to the decades-long conflict in Southern Philippines.
    IMA president Hadji Abdul Pandag said the effort of government leaders and MILF will usher peace and development in the once troubled region.
    Pandag said he has monitored the willingness of the government under the present leadership of President Benigno Aquino III and the MILF to attain peace in Mindanao, making the Muslim brothers and sisters in this city optimistic that lasting peace in Southern Philippines will be achieved.
    Majority of Muslim brothers and sisters in this city migrated from Mindanao and are engaged in small businesses.
    Pandag said the Muslim community in Ilagan fully supports the Bangsamoro peace deal and optimistic that with this agreement, the whole of Southern Philippines will soon be a safe place to live in and will become progressive.
    At 4 p.m. today, the historic peace deal will be signed in Malacanang Palace.
