    The President of the Philippines, Rody Duterte issued a proclamation putting the entire Mindanao to military rule due to the terrorism instituted by the Maute group. As per record, it was on May 23 when this group took control of Marawi City which had been devastated so much due to bombings and many innocent residents were killed and soldiers as well ass.

    With that horrible condition of the city of Marawi, President Duterte wanted to extend Martial Law even until the end of December 2017. People in Mindanao vehemently opposed that action of the President not only the opposition political party. The Congress is pushing it through and the highest court of the land, the Supreme Court supported it.

    Is it right? Is the only way to suppress if not controlled the terrorism, killings in Marawi City?
