United Youth of the Philippines-Women converged with hundreds of individuals yesterday, October 10, at Tantawan Park in Cotabato City to pray to Allah and show support to the signing of the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro between the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

The prayer rally which was organized by Kutawato Regional Management Committee (KRMC) and Consortium of Bangsamoro Civil Society (CBCS) was attended by numerous civil society organizations which include Kadtuntaya Foundation, Inc. (KFI), Bangsamoro Center for Just Peace (BCJP), Mindanao Human Rights Action Center (MinHRAC), United Youth for Peace and Development (UNYPAD), Mindanao Alliance for Peace (MAP),  Mindanao Action for Peace and Development (MAPAD), Moro Women Development and Cultural Center (MWDECC), and forum ZFD; students from Bangsamoro Holy Qur-an Memorization Center and Shariff Kabunsuan College; representatives from the GPH Peace Panel, MILF Peace Panel, and Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM); and personalities from the Kutawato Multimedia Network (KuMuNet).

This strong number of Bangsamoro People demanded the fast-tracking of the peace process while, at the same time, calling for vigilance against spoilers that might impede the establishment of a new autonomous political entity in Mindanao.

Muslim leaders called for everyone to get involved in the essential manifestation of Bangsamoro right to self-determination while beseeching the guidance of Allah in every step of the peace process.
