An Imam recites MAGUINDANAO - Mindanao’s Moro communities on Saturday celebrated the Eid’l Adha where clerics called on worshipers to spread Islamic teachings against violence and terrorism as means of seeking political and religious redress.

Members of the Jurisconsult in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, composed of Imams in Maguindanao, Lanao del Sur, Basilan, Sulu and Tawi-Tawi, emphasized in their sermons that non-Muslims have become stereotypes, with strong prejudice against Islam, owing to the un-Islamic practices of Jihadist groups.

ARMM’s political leaders had also urged the local folks to help push forward Malacañang’s peace overtures with Muslim communities, partly aimed at propagating interfaith solidarity among local Moro, Christian and lumad sectors.

Esmael Mangudadatu (right) discuss security issues during a brief break in Tuesday's peace and order conference in Buluan town, while provincial administrator Engineer Abdulwahab Tunga looks on. MAGUINDANAO, Philippines - Officials on Tuesday refuted insinuations about an ongoing recruitment of prospective Moro jihadists by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), now a declared enemy of allied nations led by the United States of America.

Senior members of the provincial peace and order council (PPOC), among them Gov. Esmael Mangudadatu, Brig. Gen. Edmundo Pangilinan of the 6th Infantry Division, and Senior Supt. Rudelio Jocson announced during Tuesday’s PPOC meeting in Buluan town that the local Islamic communities remain in control and that there are no indication of any ISIS recruitment activities in any of Maguindanao’s 36 towns.

Jocson, Maguindanao’s provincial police director, said they are, in fact, more concerned with the amicable settlement of clan wars involving big Maguindanaon families in support of the efforts of the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to restore normalcy in areas devastated by conflicts in years past.
