DAVAO CITY (MindaNews/04 February) — The Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) urged Egyptian leaders to listen to the demands of their people in the light of the massive street protests demanding the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, the MILF’s official website luwaran.com reported.

“Please listen to the people’s outcries and extremely humanistic demands,” the website relayed a text message from a senior MILF officer, who refused to be identified because of the MILF’s policy of “non-interference” in issues involving foreign Muslim states.

Luwaran said the MILF senior officer urged Egyptian leaders, including Mubarak to listen to their people’s demands, amidst the continuing mass protests in Egypt that have claimed scores of lives, paralyzed transport facilities, and disrupted power and communications.

Hundreds of thousands of Egyptians have turned up in the streets demanding the resignation of Mubarak, who has ruled Egypt with an iron hand for 30 years.

“The mass protests, attended by millions of people, are taking place in various cities throughout Egypt especially in capital Cairo and the scenic Alexandria,” Luwaran said.

Luwaran said the MILF would keep its hands off issues involving foreign Muslim states except when these issues are extremely important, such as massive violation of human rights, the right to self-determination, equality of peoples, and other people’s basic freedoms.

“Many of the senior leaders of the MILF were educated in Eqypt including the late (MILF chair) Salamat Hashim and the current MILF vice chairman, Aleem Abdulaziz Mimbantas,” said the website.

“In fact, it was in Cairo where Salamat and his colleagues conceived the liberation movement in Mindanao in 1962 when they were still students at the Al-Azhar University, Egypt’s oldest university.”

“Some of the (MILF leaders) took military training in one of military schools in Egypt, where close to 350 Moro study in various Egyptian universities now,” said Luwaran.  (Germelina Lacorte/MindaNews)
