Government Alarmed Over Formation of Two New MILF Breakaway Groups

MANILA, Philippines — After signing a framework agreement with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), the government is alarmed over the formation of two more breakaway groups who opposes the peace deal.

Led by Commander Nabhan Kishwar, the newly formed Bangsamoro Democratic Separatist Movement (BDSM) as well as  Commander Aasif Rabar’s Muslims for Territorial Occupancy of Mindanao (MTOM) joins Nur Misuari’s Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and Ameril Umbra Kato’s Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) in opposing the peace agreement.

Former President Joseph “Erap” Estrada has expressed apprehension over the recently signed framework agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) on the creation of the Bangsamoro.

“Dapat sinama na lahat in this agreement, pero hindi eh. That’s what I am afraid of. Baka magkaroon na naman ng breakaway group diyan, like Nur Misuari and this BIFF,” he told dzMM’s “Pasada Sais Trenta”.

“Our loyalty and love has always been with the MILF, but the current developments of our leaders has pushed us aside to embrace MTOM,” said a former member of the MILF.

“They even maneuvered behind our back!” added another.

According to Commander Rabar, their members, all former MILF fighters, decided to form the new group because Kato’s BIFF did not bring “anything new to the table” and the comradeship became stale.

Sawa na kami sa MILF, oras na ng pagbabago. Oras na para tanggapin na kami ay maka-MTOM  (We have grew tired of the MILF. It’s time we accept that we are for MTOM).”

BDSM rebels on the other hand, doesn’t share the same sentiments as their MTOM brothers.

Hindi kami nagsawa sa MILF, andyan pa din yung pagnanasa namin dito, (We never grew tired of MILF, the desire is still there)” said Commander Kishwar. “Ngunit, dumating kami sa punto na naramdaman namin na kailangan namin ng panibagong pagnananasa. Nabuo ang BDSM dahil sa pagnanasang hindi kayang busugin ng MILF (But we reached a point where we felt that we need to desire something new.  BDSM was formed due to the desires that the MILF cannot satiate). ”

Malacañang has appointed Atty. Joemari Navales as the new Presidential Emissary on Negotiations for Islamic Sovereignty to try and work with the breakaway groups and help make them understand the benefits of the framework agreement for Muslims in the Philippines as a whole.

The Commission on Human Independence of the City of Kidapawan for Islamic Nationality (CHICKIN) shall be specifically created by the Palace for the talks between Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and the government.
