On Eidul Adha: Ebrahim asks Bangsamoro people to obey authorities


Bangsamoro government Chief Minister Ahod “Al Haj Murad” Ebrahim has urged the Bangsamoro people to remain obedient to the authorities as the region observes Eidul Adha or Feast of Sacrifice Friday, July 31.

In his message, Ebrahim prayed that the celebration of Eidul Adha would bring the families and communities together despite the coronavirus disease pandemic.

“If there is one thing that we learned all throughout the ongoing global pandemic, it is the fact that we are bound to stick together even if we are physically distant with one another,” he said.

“Just like those who were here before us, we have to remain faithful in Allah’s plan and trust in His will while continuously praying that better days await us,” Ebrahim said.

“In similar vein, I ask our people to remain faithful and obedient to the Bangsamoro government, to the leadership of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and to all those reposed with authorities, especially in the commandment of good (ma’ruf) and prohibition of evil (munkar),” he stressed.

He also underscored the importance of patience, the same virtue that the Bangsamoro elders were able to wait for decades before they were able to establish the Bangsamoro government.

After decades of fighting, the MILF led by Murad forged a peace agreement with the government, leading to the creation of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
