Statement on the Bombing of Jolo Cathedral on Sunday, January 27, 2019
The Wasatiyah Centre for Peace strongly condemns the attack at the Jolo Cathedral which has taken the lives of churchgoers, military personnel and members of the police force.
Such a brutal and unjustifiable act of terrorism is not only a human tragedy but also an affront against the basic right of one’s religion.
We strongly condemn such brutal and unjustifiable act of terrorism that seeks to sow religious discord and has taken place only a few days after the Bangsamoro plebiscite.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims’ families, the Government and the people of the Republic of Philippines at large.
