Police, Muslim residents in Quezon City unite vs terrorism

Quezon City (12 October) -- POLICE and representatives of Muslim communities in Quezon City vowed never to allow terrorists to enter the city.

Chief Superintendent Nicasio Radovan, Quezon City Police District director, said fighting terrorism would require cooperation from the Muslim residents in the area.

Radovan called for the dialogue following a series of blasts in Mindanao, which were allegedly perpetrated by the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) and the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), a Southeast Asian terror network, whose members have allegedly trained with the ASG.

“Even if we are not affected by the bombings, I am calling on you to help us and to ask you to report and not to accept suspected terrorists among your ranks,” Radovan said in Filipino to the Muslim representatives.

Jameel Jay Malin, spokesman for at least 23 Muslim communities in Quezon City, agreed to Radovan's request.

He also suggested a Muslim identification card system to ensure that "terrorists would not penetrate" their ranks.

The identification system would hopefully discourage criminality and terrorism, said Jay Malin. (PIA) [top]
