I call him Bapa Mohagher out of respect for his works and contribution to sustain Islam as a religion and to fight for the rights of the Bangsamoro Muslims.
The same way I shall address the MILF Chairman Murad Ebrahim.
Bapa Mohagher and Bapa Murad have always been true to the cause of the Bangsamoro Muslims.
I was informed that they were offered government positions in the past but unlike the rest, they remain steadfast to the cause of the Bangsamoro Muslims in Mindanao.
It makes me feel sad seeing their photos online edited to shame them. Bapa Murad and Bapa Mohagher do not deserve to be maligned in public. But people with low-grade mentality have no recourse but to demonstrate their bias and prejudice against Muslims in Mindanao, and these two leaders of the MILF suffer all the brunt of such negativity.
