Philippine House Bill #88

feeling-punchy.gifWe had this activity on our CLE (Christian Learning Education) class to research about just and unjust house bills of the Philippines. One house bill struck me and I am totally happy that such house bill was implemented. House Bill No. 88 discusses about an act prohibiting the use of the word “Muslim” or “Islam” in print, radio, television and other forms of broadcast media to refer to any person convicted any crime or any unlawful act. A good example might be a bombing incident that usually happens here in Mindanao. Muslims have been labeled as “terrorists”, that isn’t really fair. I’ve been busy reading some articles about discrimination, from Adolf Hitler’s time until now. I guess it all started with the 9/11 incident. Muslims had been labeled as the total “war freaks”, labeled as “greedy with power”, but i totally don’t agree with such accusations. I really get sad when I hear people talk about Muslims in a very bad light. Most people use the word “Muslim” when something bad happens such as the famous destruction here in mindanao which is bombing. I often hear them say, “I bet the Muslims are the ones responsible for this bombing shit“. How could they be so sure? Why so easy for them to accuse them just like that. I don’t like it when people start to generalize things. When people start to generalize things and start to categorize things wrongly, the word DISCRIMINATION comes to life. People could have just waited for the media to spill out the names of the persons responsible for the destruction.
