We, the YouthPinoy, are horrified and deeply disturbed by the news that our fellowmen in Marawi City is experiencing terror due to the Maute group.

We are extending our heartfelt prayers to those families and individuals who are suffering and in fear at this moment because of such situation. We condemn this kind of actions and strongly oppose such practice, we do not support the erroneous way of using the religion of our good Muslim brothers and sisters to instill fear in the hearts of the people and promote bloodshed.

As the youth of today called to be online missionaries, your voices are of utmost importance. We ask you, as followers of God, to continue to pray for peace and unity. Believe in and support the efforts of our government to control the arising tension in Marawi City.

Despite the differences, young people, let us lead our nation to harmony. Fighting and hoping for the common good, let us focus on what is best for all – for each and everyone. So stop the judgment, stop the division, join hands in prayer and love to stop this rage in which we were not made and called to do.
