PDFPrintE-mail

The Golden Crescent Peace Center, now Golden Crescent Peace Council (GCPC) affiliated with the Interreligious solidarity Movement for Peace (IRSMP) had developed a new research Group named as Golden Crescent Consortium of Peace Builders and Affiliates (GCCPBA).

According to Prof. Ali T. Yacub, Al-Hj, Founder and Chairman of the Consortium, “the misconception and distortion of Islam as being portrait to a terrorist religion and the silent majority (the Muslims) have not done anything on this”. The consortium battles the said misconception through a well-founded research on many issues affecting Muslims and the populace. He added that “the consortium inspires to establish a strong solidarity with the Christians and other religious leaders”.

In a recent meeting with some members of the consortium, the group identified committees that will enforce the research group as well defined its functions and responsibilities. It is but timely to strengthen the involvement of Muslim leaders especially heads of offices and institutions to be active in the promotion of peace in the city and the country.

The consortium identified plans for 2011 to include the finalization of the following committees namely Committee on Islamic Laws and Governance, Committee on International Relations and Diplomacy, Committee on Legal Affairs, Committee on Funds and Endowments, Committee on Special Membership, Committee on Interfaith Relations, Committee on Research and Scientific Advancement, Committee on Linkages and Networking, Committee on History, Cultural Communities and Tribal Affairs, Committee on Children, Women and Social Welfare, Committee on Membership, Committee on Awards and Recognitions, Committee on Infrastructure and Technology, Committee on Youth Welfare and Development, Committee in Education and University Relations, Committee on Information and Media Relations, Committee on Customs and Traditional Affairs, Committee on Islamic Studies, Committee on Culture and the Arts, Committee on Economic Affairs, Committee on Peace and Development, Committee on Multi-media and Committee on Preservation, Protection and Promotion of Islamic Heritage. Moreover, meetings includes special cluster meetings and bi-monthly meetings. Previous engagements included a talk from City health Officer Dr. Rodelin Agbulos on matters of Islam and Health as well as Sr. Emma I. Delgado on the Mindanao Week of Peace celebration.

Members of the consortium includes the following: Prof. Ali T. Yacub, Al-Hj (Chairman), Prof. Eddie Ladja (Vice-Chairman-Internal Affairs), Hja. Sitti Rahma S. Mohammad (Vice-Chairman-External Affairs), Habib Alkhaulan Hashim (Secretary-General), Mr. Aldrin Abdurahim (Asst. Secretary General), dr. Lea U. Laput, Ph.D. (Treasurer), Engr. Yashier Ibba (Auditor); Board of Directors includes Mr. Farsi Jake Abdil, Atty. Laisa Alamia, Dr. Bashiruddin Ajihil, Ed.D., Ustd. Abdul Mujib H. Arip, Mr. Aljamar Damahan, Hon. Al-Jihan R. Edding, P/Supt. Hado Edding, PNP, Mr. Moh. Abdul Raouf Ekong, Mr. Hader Glang, RD Nasher A. Hajim, Lt. Col. Gamal S. Hayudini, PAF, Dr. Aydani Janjawi, D.R. Dev., Ustz. Bukhari Putal, Engr. Rashdi C. Sakaluran, Prof. Ghazali Taupan, Hja. Sitti Almina J. Tingkanan and Dr. Kibtiya Uddin, M.D.
