Bangsamoro Basic Law supported by Jesuit universities

MANILA (UCAN) : The presidents of the five Jesuit universities in The Philippines are calling for the Bangsamoro Basic Law that will recognise the identity and aspirations of the Moro people in the southern Philippines to be passed in congress.

In a statement released on October 5, the five Jesuit presidents said the proposed law, which will pave the way for the creation of an autonomous Muslim region in Mindanao, should be integrated into the country’s socio-political institutions.
