Fake news headline says Iqbal asked: 'Let my men shoot innocent people'

Fake news headlines are doing some rounds again trying to pollute more the already tainted peace negotiation efforts between the Philippine government and Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

If you happen to see it, a certain Facebook post has been trying to propagate that MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal allegedly said, "Let my men [to] shoot innocent people until BBL has signed by PNoy".

Here is a screenshot of the said social media post:

The post is in image format. It is obviously a quick concoction of a propaganda hoping to delude the public into something hateful.

The person who made the material took a screenshot of an original article from Inquirer containing the same photo of Iqbal, then edited the headline and the excerpts. A diligent primary grade student would spot in a flash that the headline and the excerpts were poorly constructed for a national news line to publish.

Take a look at the following observations:

"Let my men to shoot" ?
"until BBL has signed" ?
"January 25" - The original Inquirer article has "January 25 fighting"

Here is the original article from Inquirer. (Link: http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/674581/milf-refuses-to-surrender-men-involved-in-mamasapano-carnage)

The BBL is a national security concern of the Philippine government. A sincere dreamer of peace would think twice or maybe more before engaging in activities such as sharing maliciously fabricated news information and the like.
