Peace panel member: MILF, Muslims could not have done bombings

DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/16 Oct) — Gov. Pax Mangudadatu of Sultan
Kudarat, the only Moro member of the government peace panel
negotiating peace with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, said he is
certain the series of bombings in Mindanao last week were not the
handiwork of Muslims nor by the MILF.

“Even those who are not known to be very faithful, they will never do
such violent acts during the Ramadan,” he said.

Mangudadatu, in an interview with reporters Monday, noted that the
bombing incidents occurred during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

“Whoever is doing these (bombings), he is not a Muslim,” he said.

Mangudadatu also said neither could the MILF have done it because they
are “very religious”.

He pointed out that the month of Ramadan is very holy for the Muslims
and it is important for them to observe the teachings of Allah.

But Mangudadatu said had the bombing incidents did not happen during
the Ramadan, he is inclined to believe that people outside the MILF
who are not happy with the deadlock in the peace negotiations could be
behind the bombings. (To be updated)
