Bangsamoro Juridical Entity and Mindanao

I am really saddened on what is happening in Mindanao right now. Various attacks, destruction of property and lost of lives. Due to the cancellation of the signing of the controversial MOA between the GRP Peace Panel and the MILF, the later is now and continuously doing what we may consider “criminal acts.”

If I would base my opinion on this issue on those several discussions I heard over the radio and seen on TV, I am thankful that the signing of agreement was cancelled. In that case, a thorough review on the content of the said agreement can be made and that the voices of people that might be affected under this agreement can be heard.

Philippines is Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, and not partly Mindanao. There are still better ways to resolve peace in Mindanao rather than to make a state out of it. I wonder how they will govern their constituents included in the ancestral domain they are fighting for with all the bad things they did and planning to do. According to the 31 MILF members who surrendered to the military, they were given several instructions to kill innocent people during their attacks. Is that humane???

Definitely, this kind of agreement will do no good but worsen the situation in Mindanao and the Philippines as a whole. The MILF must bear in mind that the agreement was cancelled and they are held liable for those criminal acts they did to give justice to their innocent victims.
