He claimed that the book was against religion as an Islam itself. A similar of the same happened in India, the country Salman Rushdie was born in, the book’s sale and possession was banned as a small minority of Muslims claimed that it hurt their sentiments, and that the government not taking any action against it was going against it Secular policy, thus a religion influenced the operation of a government and its laws, this is precisely why a global charter should be made, in order segregate the two and prevent one disruption the efficient operation of the other.

Political and Economic Factors Leibenow (1969) traced the historical development of Liberia and the method of governance as factors in the national conflict in the Liberian society. Similarly, Sawyer (1996) observed that even the motto inscribed on Liberia’s official coat of arms, The Love of Liberty Brought Us Here, excluded the Africans who were living on the land before the settlers arrived. Such exclusions of the Africans from government employment and taxation without representation greatly contributed to the military coup and the level of violence in Liberia. Feeling excluded from their government, the Africans began to identify themselves with individual ethnic groups instead of looking at themselves as Liberians. This separation from the African majority became a factor in the Liberian national conflict.
The church and the state are two separate beings, hence, their political power must be divided in order to prevent abuses from both sides. In the Philippines, issues such as extrajudicial killings, death penalty, as well as reproductive health law and the human rights are being debated by the church and the government. “You shall commit murder” is the fifth of The Ten Commandments which are the laws of life given by GOD to Moses on Mount Sinai to give to the people of Israel. This commandment is why the church is firmly against extrajudicial killings. According to church, we are mere humans and we have no right to claim life that is not ours, only GOD
As a result of the Spanish American war, the United States gained control of the Philippines. The US felt that the Philippines were too uncivilized to govern themselves so the US decided to keep them under their control. Although the filipinos were unhappy that they were being given to another country for imperialist rule Before America took over the Philippines there were 87 different languages. Some of the languages that they spoke were Tagalog, Pampungo, ETC. There were 7.5 million people in the Philippines before the imperialism.
Soon after the dominant ruling of the Spaniards, the Filipinos become resistant. The citizens of the country start to form organizations seeking independence and equal rights which value education. Later on, these organizations are condemned illegal by the Spanish government (Moshman, n.d.). 1701-1900 But as the Spanish colonization ends, the United States government decriminalized these CSOs. Church and state-based civic organizations, according to Hilhorst (2003) lead the Philippine government to revolutions and political movements.
The existence of the conflict of interest came from the movement for freedom of the Moros (Quevedo, n.d.). This movement for freedom by the Moros led to the rebellion of the current times and this threatened the peace in the country. So, to quell this rebellion, the government proposed the BBL.

That’s why many of our people, especially on the church and department of human rights, opposed him and his ideals for exterminating drugs in the Philippines. At some point they are right, there are many ways to eliminate drugs in our country. But on our newly elect President’s point of view imprisoning people who are involved in drugs and after some time release them because they have paid bail is so wrong because for him the only way in eliminating drugs in the Philippines is to exterminate its very roots and that is the drug lords and
The character of armed Muslim rebellion in the Philippines is rooted in their struggle for sovereignty, first against the colonialism of the Spanish and then the Americans, and later against colonization by the newly independent Philippine government itself (Rasul, 2017) this agony continued through the dictatorship of Ferdinand Marcos, whose soldiers massacred thousands of Moro under martial law (Hincks, 2017). In 1935, as the American government prepared to give independence to the Philippines, Muslim chieftains petitioned the US president not to include them in the new republic because they recognized that they would become second-class citizens of a Catholic-dominated country but their petition was ignored and the Catholic majority gained their independence and control over the Muslim territories (Rasul, 2017). The Southern Philippines experienced a regional separatist insurgency since the early 1970’s led by the Moro National Liberation Front who negotiated peace to gain political power for Muslim Mindanao (Scott, 2012). Since 1972, Muslim community has fought for their independence from the central government (Hincks, 2017) and as minorities in a predominantly Christian nation, the Muslims feel the need to defend their identities and their lands (Rasul,

It implies that the identity crisis is the feeling of an individual’s association with a particular political system. In the process of political change, an identity crises occurs "when a community guides that it had once unquestionably accepted as physical and psychological definitions of its collective self are no longer acceptable under new territorial conditions" (Samuel, 1971).
