MNLF: We won't resort to violence
MANILA - Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) secretary-general Ustadz Murshi Ibrahim said the group will not use violence in its bid for independence.
This, after the MNLF said it no longer wants to be a part of the Philippines and declared a "Bangsamoro Republic" Monday.
Ibrahim added the current peace talk between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front is not the main reason for the declaration.
The MNLF wants Palawan, Sulu, Davao and even Sabah to be part of an independent Mindanao with MNLF founder Nur Misuari as its leader.
"We will continue to struggle through the end but by legal and peaceful means. Rest assured, the MNLF will never result to violence. The MNLF will not result to war. Just to you know as an instrument their strategic political mission," Ibrahim said.
