Filipino Freethinkers Condemns Davao Terrorist Attack

Filipino Freethinkers Condemns Davao Terrorist Attack

The Filipino Freethinkers condemn the attack in Davao. This attack was recently claimed by Islamist terrorists allied with the Abu Sayyaf, calling themselves Daulat Ul Islamiya. They have made demands of installing Islamic hadiths as laws for the Philippine nation and its people.

We strongly denounce the use of violence as a coercive tool for political agendas over peaceful solutions respecting human rights. We strongly denounce the demand to impose sectarian beliefs of any stripe on our ostensibly secular nation.

We express our condolences for the victims of this attack and share with them our grief in the loss of innocent lives.
