DREAMING TO BUILD A SUSTAINABLE PEACE IN MINDANAO
4th week | April 24, 2015
This is the last stage of a long journey of the peace agreement in Mindanao known as the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). Silsilah Dialogue Movement, on many occasions, has affirmed that the Movement has the mission to be a “voice of conscience” and to link people willing to build together a sincere and sustainable dialogue and peace in society, promoting a spiritual approach of living and promoting the Culture of Dialogue, Path to Peace.
The recent statement of the Inter Faith Council of leaders (IFCL) of Zambaonga, a group of Muslim and Christian leaders affiliated with Silsilah, affirmed the importance to review the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) on points that need to be modified, to find ways to harmonize the aspirations of different Moro groups, to listen to the comments and suggestions of the parts and after to implement it. My reflection at this point goes beyond the approval of BBL and share a more alarming issue that it is related to the “FEAR” projected by many, those who are not in favor and those who are in favor of the approval of the BBL.
Both sides are using the card of “fear”. This is emerging clearer, more and more now after the recent issues related to the siege in Zamboanga, the Mamasapano incident, the growth of new revolutionary groups with more radical approaches and other international incidents committed by radical and violent groups who operate in other countries, but have connections in the Philippines. In addition, the gap between the different cultural Muslim groups, the Moro National Liberation Front ( MNLF) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front ( MILF) and other new revolutionary groups linked with international “terrorist” groups add more fear and present a more alarming scenario.
Since 1977 I have been in Mindanao to promote dialogue and peace. I have contributed in many ways to promote dialogue in the country , but I have also been misunderstood especially by Christians who believe that I am too close to the Muslims in this “difficult dialogue” . This is part of the mission…. I have always been consistent to say that there is hope to build a peaceful society in the plurality of cultures and religions promoting the Culture of Dialogue, Path to peace based on respect and moving together for the common good. My enemies are those who do not like and do not believe in this dialogue.
