May 31, 2017 By

Mayor Inday Sara Duterte said she prays for the peaceful observance of Ramadan in Davao City as she encouraged all Dabwenyos to be one with “our Muslim brothers and sisters.”

Mayor Inday pointed out that never in the history of Davao City that Dabawenyos had been divided by religion, color, or race.

“Never in the history of Davao City has there been Muslim hatred or Christian hatred,” she said. “Our life as Dabawenyos always transcends religion, always transcends color, always transcends race.”

Discrimination against and hatred towards each should not be allowed in Davao City, she stressed.

“We hope that all Dabawenyos will reject these kinds of sentiments and ideology,” she said.

Mayor Inday also encouraged all Dabawenyos to immediately report incidents that may trigger or promote hatred against Muslims and Christians.

She said that the city government will respond to these reports immediately. CIO
