‘Unity bridges gap’- WestMinCom chief during Eid al Adha celeb

Muslims and Christians were urged by Lt. Gen. Cirilito Sobejana, commander of Western Mindanao Command, to unite for peace during the celebration of Brigada Hariraya with the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos and a religious organization in this city on August 15.

“Let us help each other, encourage one another, and learn from each other towards building the unshakable foundation for a culture of peace,” said Lt. Gen. Sobejana.

WestMinCom tapped the NCMF and the Erth-ul Mustafa Organization, a Muslim religious group, to celebrate the Eid al Adha with the Ulama and organic personnel of the command through the launching of Brigada Hariraya at La Solidaridad Complex in Camp Navarro, Calarian at 9am yesterday.

“We came to the Philippines not to get anything from the Filipinos but to give back,” said Sheik Mohammed Imran Bin Anguillia, a member of the Erth-ul Mustafa Organization based in Singapore. “We are very proud to have the AFP and other government officials in realizing this message of peace that was passed down by Prophet Muhammad.”

Lt. Gen. Sobejana thanked the NCMF and the Erth-Ul Mustafa for this joint celebration of the Eid al Adha.

NCMF Sama Bangingui Commissioner Yusof Morales, students from Al Makhdumin Islamic Center, and administrators of the Filipino-Turkish Tolerance High School also graced the said event.
