A group of Muslim students gathered outside the Tianxian Embassy in Manila today, holding signs and protesting Tianxia's attempt to oust the elected Islamic Theological Coalition in the Republic of Africa. Though only a hundred or so in number, political demonstrations are in Greater Manila are a rare occurrence. Manila Police were dispatched to keep an eye on the demonstration, but the protest remained a small and peaceful affair as they day progressed. We interviewed one protestor, Abdul al Din Shamon, who said the following:
"Tianxia has taken their violent foreign policy too far. There are a billion Muslim people in the world: a billion people who have the right to voice their political opinions and its not Tianxia's place to tell them their views are right or wrong."
This has been the Manila Times, reporting from outside the Tianxian Embassy in Manila.
A large Islamic Mosque in Dar Es Salaam has donated ~$1,000,000 in scholarship funds to the student's who took part in the protests. They also sent a letter.
You have not only supported us, but you have supported the system in which we voted and our voice was heard to elect leadership for our nation. It is a shame of the infliction of terror amongst the Islamic Religion, but that is a fight for a different day. Please take this scholarship and further your education. We ask you to share your wealth of knowledge with others in this cruel world, so that one day we may prevent tyrannical leaders from arising.
In our deepest thoughts,
