Assalamu’alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Ta’ala Wa Barakatuhu.
I vehemently condemn the violent bombing incident that took place this morning at the
MSU Dimaporo Gymnasium during an ongoing mass of the Catholic community in
MSU. This act of violence is an affront to peace, unity, and the sanctity of life.
My deepest condolences and sympathies go out to the families who have lost their loved ones in this tragic incident. I stand in solidarity with you during this difficult time.
No words can adequately express the sorrow and pain we feel for your unimaginable loss.
I call upon law enforcers to swiftly and diligently investigate this heinous act of violence. Those responsible for this abhorrent act must be apprehended and brought to justice. I urge the cooperation of the local leaders and the community stakeholders to work hand in hand with the law enforcement agencies to ensure a thorough and impartial investigation.
In the wake of this tragedy, it is essential that we come together as a community and unite against such acts of violence. Let us stand shoulder to shoulder, irrespective of our differences, to safeguard our community and protect the lives of our people.
At this time of mourning, I call upon all citizens to remain calm, vigilant, and cooperative with the authorities. Our collective strength and resilience will help us overcome this dark chapter and pave the way for a safer future.
May the souls of the victims find eternal peace, and may their families find solace in the love and support of their fellow community members. Let us remember them and honor their memory by working together to build a society that is free from violence and fear.
