Leaders of various Muslim communities in Negros and Panay expressed their full support for the anti-terrorism programs of the Philippine National Police yesterday, regional police spokesman Supt. Joem Malong said.
Members of the United Muslim Federation in Western Visayas led by Hadji Muamar Faisal Arumpac met with the PNP at Camp Martin Delgado in Iloilo City, following the twin bombings at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cathedral in Jolo, Sulu, that claimed the lives of 22 persons and caused injuries to more than100.
Arumpac said they strongly condemn the bombing in Sulu.
The UMFWV headed by Arumpac is an association of peace-loving Muslim communities in Region 6, which have been cooperative in the efforts of the PNP in addressing issues on security by monitoring their members’ activities, Malong said.
Malong added that the 27 leaders of Muslim communities also supported the implementation of ID system in their respective areas, and profiling of new comers in their communities, as a sign of their commitment to prevent any possible terroristic activities in the region.
The dialog was organized by the PRO6 Police Community Relations Division headed by Supt. Victorino Romanillos and Senior Supt. Harold Tuzon, regional chief if the Directorial Staff.
Malong said that PRO6 has established the ties with UMFWV since 2012, with some of their members form part of the PRO6 Inter-Faith Organization where they actively serve as life coaches in support of the Moral Enhancement Program for Police Officers.*
