Political Dynasties in the Philippines: In My Opinion

I was born and raised in the Mindanao Island. My paternal grandparents are originally from Iloilo while my maternal grandfather is from La Union. I came from the lineage of the so-called “migrant-settlers” during the migration of the people from Luzon and Visayas in the early 1900s.

Mindanao had been my cradle for more than two decades. I grew up in a predominantly Christian town of Tupi, in South Cotabato, where I rubbed elbows with Muslims and Lumads. I was lucky to be born in a place where cultures co-exist despite diversity.
But as I grew older, I came to realize that this part of the archipelago has a lot of issues. I realized that in some part of island, political and religious tensions are rife. When I stepped into college at the Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology, it was then that I came to know more about the so-called “conflict” in the South on a deeper level.

You see, my Mindanao is one of the richest in terms of natural resources. Aside from securing almost the country's iron reserve, it also produces over half of the country's total pineapple, corn, coffee, copra, cocoa and abaca products. In fact, my home province of South Cotabato is home to a various fruit plantations and mining ventures. But despite these godsends, some parts of Mindanao remain poor. The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) is where the highest poverty rates are, the lowest literacy rates, and the least access to health and education.

The reason for the “Mindanao conflict” in the South is deeply intertwined with various factors such as the colonial legacies and a scrawny central government. After the colonization by the foreign powers, much of our Muslim brethren were displaced and dirt poor. Add to that the proclivity of some ‘Christian’ Filipinos to discriminate Muslims (and Lumads) which gave them the idea that they’re being left out. This fueled the separatist movements, led by radical leader Nur Misuari, which started in the 1960s.

The Filipino media’s attention on the island was not of help, either.  For the longest time, Mindanao has landed in the news for all the negative reasons: kidnappings, terrorist bombings, and violence.

That is why I always cry foul when the Manila-centric media does not care to specify the town affected - and lazily labels the scoop as “Mindanao”. This irresponsible style of reporting gives the impression that the whole island, in all of its 26 provinces and 6 administrative regions, is erupting in violence.
It only seemingly becomes a concern when there is a threat in national security. And this is actually one of the reasons why I blog, why most of my Mindanaoan netizens blog: we try to provide positive alternative news that is rarely published in the dailies. We believe that bringing out positive and truthful news in the open is one of the best ways of letting other people know that change is happening and that there is still hope.

Living here in Mindanao, I see events unfold with my very eyes which all the more made me realize how important this issue is. Over the years, insurrections and skirmishes taint our mountains. And these wars did nothing but watered the land with crimson blood and took the lives of the rebels, the soldiers, and the civilians.

In 2008, I volunteered to go to war-ravaged towns in Lanao del Norte days only after the towns were attacked by rebels. It was a horrible sight: houses were burned, and townspeople were displaced to the evacuation centers. This same feeling of grief gripped also me last year when I visited Barangay Rio Hondo, in the infamous “Zamboanga City Siege”. It has been estimated that the conflict for the past four decades has already resulted to about 150,000 casualties. Filipinos are fighting their fellowmen – this has to stop.

In college when I was a youth volunteer for the distribution of relief goods in war-ravaged towns in 2008.

Since the advent of the separatist movements, several programs of the government were devised but to no avail. This country witnessed botched attempts and half-baked agreements to secure peace. From the 1976 Tripoli Agreement, 1996 Peace Agreement and the 2008 MOA-AD, it did almost nothing regarding the plight of Muslim Filipinos. It seemed that “genuine” peace remains as elusive now as it did then.

But come to think of it, peace has always been something that both the Christian migrant-settlers and Muslims wanted. I remember what Associate Solicitor General Karl Miranda told me last year. He narrated to me that during the months before the infamous “all-out-war” of the Estrada Administration in 2001, he and some government statesmen, went to Camp Abu-Bakr in Maguindanao.

The front part of Sta. Barbara Elementary School in central Zamboanga City is tattered by bullets from the siege.

And what struck him was that when they went there, top MILF officials hugged them and welcomed them in peace. A question lingered in his mind: why is there conflict if both of the parties’ ultimate goal is peace? But if we all wanted peace, why has it become so elusive in Mindanao?

That is why the signing of the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB), last Wednesday, is such a historic moment. Accordingly, the structure is different from the ‘debased’ ARMM. The new agreement provides for a bigger assembly lead by a Chief Minister not popularly voted but by the Assembly. Other changes are also regarding the wealth-sharing and Bangsamoro having its own police force. A more devolved tax system will also be given shape. But of all these features, I believe that the most important result of this is that it promotes lasting peace.

Muslim Filipinos in Manila celebrating the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro last Thursday.
Sure, there are people quite skeptic about the entire idea. In an interview with former Senator Nene Pimentel, he told me that the problem is that the agreement is “non-inclusive” as other insurgents were left out. There’s also the possibility of more ‘breakaway’ groups. Others academicians believe that it would just be the same as the ARMM.

But actually, the signing of such comprehensive agreement may yet be the easy part. The true challenge is to provide Filipino Muslims the fruits of good governance. If the new entity remains to be a mere writing where the same dynasts rule, I fear that it would not lead to a lasting peace.

Leadership, particularly getting better leaders, is part of the solution. So will capacity-building and institution-building. I believe that a new breed of Muslim leaders, visionaries, and intellectuals will be the catalyst for change. And ultimately, as long as the conditions at the grassroots remain the same, real peace will never be achieved.

We need to recreate the “culture of peace”. We need to wipe out our baseless prejudices and instead have a tolerant mindset towards people of other ethnicities. We can focus on what is important, try to understand each other, and find our common ground – instead of looking on where we differ. If we strive to treat other people like a brother, treating each other justly and fairly, there would be no conflict and the rest follows.

Our country, like a human person, is an integrated whole. When one part of the human body is sick, the rest suffer. On a similar note, if Mindanao remains mired in conflict, then any aspirations for the Philippines’ long-term economic and social development well remain as castles in the air. Without a sense of Filipino nationhood; we would not succeed.

While it is true that the future remains to be uncertain, I believe that the only choice for us is peace. That is why I am supportive of this current progress on the Bangsamoro. That is why I am still hopeful for a peaceful Mindanao. And that is why I would like to see things unfold for the betterment of my fellow Filipinos in this lifetime.

It was during the Marcos regime when the Code of Muslim of Personal Laws (P.D. 1083) and the Special Rules of Procedure governing the Shariah Courts in the Philippines were decreed.
Shariah, or the Islamic Law, comprises ten units in the curriculum is only a primer to the purview and to the deep learning of the Islamic Law practiced in Saudi Arabia and other Middle East countries. The inclusion of the subject in the prospectus is implicitly part of the mission-vision-philosophy of Mindanao State University to promote a culturally diverse understanding among the Tri-People (The Bangsamoro, Migrants and Indigenous People) in Mindanao.

I am already on my sixth semester in the law school. And one of the common things that I observed in my colleagues is that they not taking the Shariah subjects seriously. Though I haven’t made a survey or a datum or statistics to present, this opinion is based on my strong observation and the views shared by my classmates and other students whom I have corresponded with. According to them the whole scope of Shariah is not part of the Bar Exam therefore it is not practical to include it in our curriculum and a mere waste of time. Instead, we should have been focusing to the other subjects. Some were clamoring for the revision of the curriculum, precisely the deletion of the Shariah units in the syllabus. To make it worse, students who do not know how to defraud on the other subjects have the courage to open their notes during the midterm and final exams in their Shariah classes which apparently leads me to the impression that they do not think Islamic Law is worthy enough to be taken as part of our everyday learning. 

In reply to these, I wore a mask of grin and pretended not to be affected every time my colleagues and professors dropped their comments even in the social networking site Facebook regarding their views in studying Shariah. However, to me the thought of making sweeping negative statements on the Islamic Law is indecent and judgmental. What is more disappointing is that we are given access to information, almost spoon-fed, that all we have to do is to exert an effort to read and understand things. Yet, we intentionally refuse to know and deliberately choose to be ignorant and judgmental. It is very frustrating and to some extent, oppressing.  

Yes, this may not be in the ambit of the regular Bar exam but still it is part of the law of the land which is promulgated as special law that worth to be studied and be given a balanced time like the other subjects. On the other hand, this will serve as an avenue to know the real definition of Islam and an opportunity to learn beyond how most of the irresponsible media defined it: religion of the world famous terrorists and extremists but rather like all other religions which also outcry for peace and justice.

As quoted in Paulo Coelho’s Like the Flowing River, “If you were to look (the Islam) with more love, you would mainly see what we (Christian) have in common, then half of the world’s problem would be solved.”
* Mohammad Rayyan Moxcir Domado or "Bibbo" as he is known in the MSU College of Law – IIT Extension, is a junior law student from the same school. He is a Shariah Counselor and placed 2nd in the Shariah Bar Examinations in 2012.
