On October 12, 2022, the National Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF)-North Luzon Regional Office headed by Regional Director Atty. Bai Raihanah Sarah T. Macarimpas-Pacasum assisted in the reclassification of a land donated for the establishment of a public Muslim cemetery.

The NCMF-North Luzon attended a meeting for the reclassification through its Pampanga Field Office in San Fernando, Pampanga under the leadership of Provincial Director Atty. Abbas Macadatar.

It was held at the Sangguniang Bayan Conference Room of the local government unit (LGU) of the Municipality of Norzagaray, Bulacan. The LGU’s Committee on Land Use convened the meeting.

This meeting tackled the Muslim landowners/donors’ request for the reclassification of their donated land located in Sitio Tadyang, Barangay Minuyan, Norzagaray, from agricultural to institutional, which will be utilized for the establishment of a public Muslim cemetery.

Councilor and Committee on Land Use Chairperson Zosimo SM. Cruz, Jr. and Vice Mayor Patricio I. Gener presided over the meeting.

During the meeting, Ms. Elvira Marohombsar, the landowners/donors’ representative, submitted the documentary requirements for the application for reclassification. As it was found out upon review that the Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) was lacking, the NCMF-Pampanga gave its commitment to assist in securing the same.

The next public hearing will be scheduled for the final approval of the application for reclassification of the subject land.

In attendance were NCMF staff, Palawan Pacasum, Sitti Divina Mohammadshaid-Roxas, Norsad Simbanatao and Ustadhz Nasser Mimbala, as well as Jimmy Sanggila of ERA, Barangay Minuyan Secretary Ruth Omorog, and other Sangguniang Bayan personnel.

The entire NCMF expressed its to the landowners/donors for their generosity, and the Municipal Government of Norzagaray, Bulacan for the assistance extended. (/)
