IHH’s role in the peace process

With the agreement signed in 2014 under the supervision of IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation that gives extensive rights to the Muslims in the region, the civil war that continued for more than 40 years officially ended. The monitoring committee closely supervised the ongoing negotiation process between the Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and made great efforts to materialize the agreement, and as a result the agreement came into force on approval of both the Philippine Government and Parliament.

The monitoring committee consisting of five members included the former EU Ambassador Alistair MacDonald, IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation Executive Board Member Huseyin Oruç, Steven Rood from the Asian Foundation, Karen Tanyada from Gaston Z Ortigas and Priest Kuthdo from UNYPAD.   

With the approval of the autonomy law known as the Bangasamoro Organic Law by President of the Philippine Government Rodrigo Duterte on 26 July 2018, the dispute that expanded over half a century and led to the deaths of 120 thousand people, ended.

Ebrahim thanked IHH

In August 2018, following the signing of the Bangasamoro Organic Law Moro Islamic Liberation Front Leader Al-Hajj Murad Ebrahim sent a letter of thanks to IHH that contributed to the peace process. In the letter thanking IHH President Bulent Yıldırım, Executive Board Member Huseyin Oruç and IHH personnel for the efforts they made for the Moro Muslims, Ebrahim also said he was extremely grateful to the Turkish government and the Turkish Muslims for their support.

    On 10 December, commemorated as the Human Rights Day, a march was organized from Fatih Mosque to Saraçhane Park to demand the immediate release of the thousands of young, old, women and men detained in Egyptian prisons. Thousands of people are currently imprisoned under appalling conditions and suffering from torture. People from various occupation groups including scientists, lawyers, doctors, politicians, musicians and engineers are imprisoned and losing their lives; sometimes by execution following the death sentences issued in the so-called court hearings, and sometimes because of the appalling conditions. Occasionally these prisoners who are not even allowed to see their families or lawyers try to make the world hear their voices by going on hunger strikes.
