Gov Hataman: Enrile’s revision of history will hinder peace in Mindanao

Sep 26, 2018 @ 13:52

Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) Governor Mujiv Hataman said the attempt of former Senate president Juan Ponce Enrile to “revise history” will hinder peace in Mindanao.

The Cagayan politiko, in his interview with former senator Bongbong Marcos, falsely claimed that no massacres were committed during the Marcos regime.

Hataman said Enrile’s lies will only make the struggle for peace in Mindanao more difficult.

“We Moros have been struggling to recognize our history as a people with a right to determine our own path, and revising our history will only make this struggle more difficult,” he said.

“Hiding the truth in sanitized versions of our history will not help us build peace. At this crucial stage where we will begin implementing the Bangsamoro Organic Law, we need the truth, unvarnished and honest, as our guide. We cannot build peace on lies,” Hataman added.
