Ulama to rebels: Silence your guns

By Rose Palacio

Davao City (30 December) -- ULAMA League of the Philippines regional chair Mahmoud Adilao reiterated his call to rebel groups to set aside their guns this New Year.

This, as the communist rebels were reported to have rejected the government offer of a Yuletide truce.

Interviewed over DXOW Tingog sa Masa radio program anchored by Boy Bilaan, Adilao said the Communist Party of the Philippines New People*s Army (CPP-NPAs) 37th celebration last Dec 26 was silent meaning walang malaking kaguluhang ang naganap (no major incidents happened) and we are thankful for that.

The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the New People's Army (NPAs) should give peace a chance. We should respect the effort of the government to end this conflict and end the war against rebel groups," he said.

"The rebel groups are also trying to strengthen the efforts of their peace panels in building confidence with the government," he said.

The 2006 New Year, he said, is fast approaching and everyone should have that desire to change and reform their lives for the better. Each one must try something and reform one's community, Adilao added. (PIA) [top]
