Selamat datang "Islam" kembali semula ke Sulu 17 November 2010. Tanpa perang! Tanpa Keganasan! Seperti Futhul Makkah! Musyrikin (kafirin) tidak dapat berbuat apa-apa!!
To all concern people of the world, especially, Media Practitioners, Human Rights Activists, Cultural Activists, Civil Activists, Peace Activists, Social Activist, Art Activists and Legal Activist and of different kinds of activists.
Historically, legally and politically, Sulu Sultanate was never subjugated and conquered by any foreign colonizers, including the current neo-colonial Republic of the Philippines.
Sulu Sultanate was annexed to the Philippine Republic on the 4th of July 1946 by the colonialist through Treaty of Peace signed in Paris on 10 December 1898 with the payment of twenty million dollars.
This was signed between Spain and United States of America that was ever known as “Treaty of Paris”. In accordance with the treaty, Spain surrendered to the United States of America after defeated from the mock war!
Sulu Sultanate had signed the international treaty with United States of America, known as Bates Treaty that was signed in 22 August 1899. The treaty was abrogated in 2 March 1904 with illogical reasons.
It was claimed that the Sulu Sultan had failed to quell Tausug resistance and hindrance to the effective American colonial administration, where in fact these reasons were not part of the provisions of the treaty – Sulu Sultanate indeed UNCONQUERED!
The citizens adhere to the provisions of the UN General Assembly Resolution, Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Article 15, (1) Everyone has the right to a nationality. (2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his nationality nor denied the right to change his nationality.
Those of Sulu people that are having their Filipino citizenship are right now shifting into Tausug or Sulu citizenship. Tausug are not Filipinos and Filipinos are not Tausug. Filipino is an “imagined nation” whereas Tausug is a “real nation” that existed long before the birth of Filipino nation.
Tausug is the name applied geographically to the people of Sulu Archipelago, the territories of the Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam of having different ethnicities. Every ethno-dialectical people here are called Tausug or Bangsa Sug.
The national language is Bahasa Sug or Sulu Language. There are many dialects in Sulu Archipelago. Tausug is citizenship and Bangsa Sug is nationality as part of the Darul Islam (Dar Al-Islam).
So much for that, the United Tau Sug People, the Citizens of the Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam is inviting everyone to witness the historical momentous event that would be held at Buansa City, Jolo Island, Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam.
This would be the significant beginning of the journey for the international peace and security in the Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam territories - land, sea and air – beyond boundaries.
The Sulu citizens declare the Assertion of Independence of the Sulu Sultanate Darul Islam is to regain and execute their long lost-stolen to exercise government of their own.
This greatest historical event will be the Sulu Citizens’ declaration of Assertion of Independence of the Sultanate of Sulu on 17 November 2010.
This event shall stick to the principle of international peace and security by Denouncing War and Renouncing Terrorism!
Invitation letter sent to the Tausug Global Bulletin.
