Philippine Military Says MILF are Terrorists

Due to the series of atrocities perpetrated by the rogue members of the MILF under Commanders Bravo and Kato in Central Minadanao and other parts of the country, the MILF became terrorist group just like the Abu Sayaff, Jemaah Islamiyah, Al-Qaeda Network, and other radicals.

Major Gamal S Hayudini PAF, Group Commander of the 4th Civil Relations Service, Civil Relations Service, AFP said that the series of atrocities perpetrated by the lawless elements of the MILF were attempts to mutilate the Republic of the Philippines. “Their actions were meant to set back the gains of the government in bringing progress and development to Mindanao,” he said.

He added that these acts of rouge MILF members especially under the headship of the two commanders are indications that they no longer respect human life since their actions no longer consider that it’s the civilian that gets affected and become victims of their assaults.

“The MILF’s secessionist cause is anti-development since their violent actions have resulted to deter foreign and local investments to pour into their “base” areas of which their families and their future generations are the beneficiaries,” Hayudini said.

Moreover, rogue MILF members continuously escalates violence as they conduct bombings in the different areas of Lanao Provinces and even implicated in the recent kidnapping of members of Non-Government Organization (NGO) in Tipo-Tipo, Basilan, Province.
