MILF Peace Implementing Panel Chair Iqbal Pays Courtesy Call To Upi Mayor Piang Paid courtesy call to the office of Mayor Ramon A. Piang Sr. of Upi , Maguindanao

UPI, MAGUINDANAO. MILF Peace Implementing Panel Chair Mohagher Iqbal paid courtesy call to the office of Mayor Ramon A. Piang Sr. last Monday after the LGU flag ceremony and was accompanied by Commissioner Timuay Melanio Ulama of the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) and Federation of Bangsamoro Civil Society Organization ( FBCSO ) President and former Vice Mayor Abdullah P. Salik Jr.


Both leaders acknowledged the uncertainties of Bangsamoro Peace Process considering that the new BBL drafted by the BTC is still pending in congress awaiting her fate and the same is not included as one of the priority bills agreed upon by the Legislative - Executive Development Advisory Council ( LEDAC ).     

Mayor Piang assured Chairman Iqbal his unconditional support to the Bangsamoro Peace Process by helping the latter in advocating the new BBL to his constituents. Mayor Piang once served as a member of the GPH Peace Negotiating Panel representing the IP's counterpart of Late Antonio Kinoc of MILF Peace Negotiating Panel during the administration of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.      

The two leaders also discussed the emerging problem of violent religious extremism and the menace of illegal drugs. Mayor Piang shared that his administration is supporting the Madrasa Education by subsidizing 14 Madrasas and 79 Asatidz (plu. of ustadz) as part of Moro Community Peace Program. " I am now preparing an Executive Order for re - organization of our Madrasa Council, a multi - sectoral Moro group task to monitor and recommend initiatives for sustaining our peace effort especially that violent religious extremism is now a phenomenon. " Mayor Piang added.
Chair Iqbal commended the administration of the mayor for his effort in supporting the Madrasa Education in his Municipality. 

However he lamented that one of the push factor of violent religious extremism is ignorance. It is only right and proper that our youth should be accorded with correct values and aqeedah.
