The Philippines will work together with Indonesia to improve Islamic instruction in the nation as a major aspect of endeavors to counter religious fanaticism in the fallout of the control of Marawi City by Muslim radicals a year ago.

The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) said Indonesia had offered to share its accepted procedures in Islamic instruction inside the setting of local endeavors to keep the spread of radicalism.

Remote Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano called Indonesia “one of the models” of Islamic instruction that the Philippines and other Southeast Asian countries could consider.

While the Philippines and Indonesia have a current concurrence on instruction, the two countries are talking about another type of participation on Islamic training, as indicated by the DFA.

“Our Indonesian companions would prefer not to see another Marawi happening and are putting forth to enable us to counter radicalization through instruction,” Cayetano said.
