Muslim Community Furious Over FPJ's Batang Quiapo Episode?

9:36:00 PM

The new TV series, FPJ's Batang Quiapo, received a warm reception from fans and viewers after its first episode aired. The show features talented actress Miles Ocampo and is produced by popular actor Coco Martin. However, the show recently faced criticism from the Muslim community due to an episode that portrayed the community in a negative light.

Fernando Poe Jr., or FPJ, is a beloved figure in the Muslim community, not just for his films, but also for the respect and recognition he gave to the community in his work. It was disappointing that the Batang Quiapo series offended the Muslim community, even though the episode in question was fictional. The scene depicted a Muslim character tolerating theft, which many viewers found offensive and inaccurate.

Many people expressed their disappointment with the episode and criticized the Batang Quiapo team for stereotyping Muslims. In response to the criticism, Coco Martin personally went to the office of Senator Robin Padilla, a prominent Muslim figure in government, to apologize for any offense caused by the episode. He admitted that he didn't know much about Muslim culture and assured the senator that he and the team would work to learn and understand more about it.

Here's some part of the public statement made by Senator Robin Padilla.

"...Nais kong ipaalam na personal po na pumunta sa aking tanggapan si Ginoong Director Coco Martin upang ibigay po ang kanyang paliwanag sa kontrobersyal na bahagi ng kanyang teleserye. Personal ko pong narinig at nakita at naramdaman ang sinserong paghingi ng paumanhin ng aking kapwa actor at director sa lahat po ng mga nasaktan sa nasabing paglalarawan. Mga mahal kong kapatid, ako na po ang naggagarantiya sa mabuting kalooban ni Ginoong Coco Martin at sigurado po akong wala siyang masamang intensiyon kanino man. Inaamin po nya na kulang ang kanyang kaalaman sa Islam, kung kaya't sa halip po na ating kutyain ang kanyang pagkukulang, ako na po ang nananawagan po sa inyo upang atin itong sama-samang bunuan.

Sampu po ng mga bumubuo ng Batang Quiapo, sila naman po ay nangangako na mas magiging maingat at sensitibo sa pagsasalarawan ng mga sektor lalo't higit po kung nakasalalay dito ang imahe ng kultura, tradisyon, at maging relihiyon.

Tunay na mayaman po at makulay ang komunidad ng Muslim sa ka-Maynilaan, partikular po sa Quiapo na tumatagos sda libu-libong pahina ng ating kasaysayan..."

[(translation) "I want to inform everyone that Director Coco Martin personally came to my office to explain the controversial part of his teleserye. I personally heard, saw, and felt the sincere apology of my fellow actor and director to all those who were hurt by the said portrayal. My dear brothers and sisters, I guarantee the good intentions of Mr. Coco Martin and I am sure that he has no ill intentions towards anyone. He admits that he lacks knowledge of Islam, so instead of criticizing his shortcomings, I appeal to you to help us build a better understanding together.

The members of Batang Quiapo, in cooperation, promise to be more careful and sensitive in depicting sectors, especially when the image of culture, tradition, and religion is at stake.

The Muslim community in Ka-Maynilaan (Manila), particularly in Quiapo, is truly rich and colorful, which runs through thousands of pages of our history."]

This incident is an opportunity to learn more about the Muslim culture and stop judging people based on appearances or stereotypes. Coco Martin and the Batang Quiapo team have committed to doing better in the future and promoting more accurate and respectful representations of the Muslim community.

“FPJ’s Batang Quiapo,” which is inspired by the original story of Regal Films, on weeknights at 8 PM on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, iWantTFC, and Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. The show is also available to viewers in and out of the Philippines on iWantTFC, while viewers outside of the Philippines can watch on The Filipino Channel (TFC) on cable and IPTV.

Shocking COVID-19 Revelation During the Bagong Umaga Finale Mediacon

7:46:00 PM


Shocked! Surprised! And probably in awe of the revelation made by one of the casts of Bagong Umaga during the finale media conference. A revelation that is probably shouldn't be revealed, especially to the media people and bloggers present at the online conference, but it was maybe unintentionally mentioned. (Watch the video below)

Though there was news that some of the members of the casts of Bagong Umaga were affected by the COVID-19, it was a revelation that most of the cast were tested positive. Heaven Peralejo, Sunshine Dizon, and Nikki Valdez are some of the actors that were on news and who openly shared their experiences of being afflicted by the virus. Thankfully, the ABS CBN Management and their set of protocols made the experiences of these affected actors bearable and assuring that they will get through. 

Working during this pandemic is a risk and everyone knows it very well but knowing that everyone is a Kapamilya, the casts of Bagong Umaga gave their assuring words that they will not hesitate to work again to bring a teleserye that brings new light and new hope. 

The Bagong Umaga will still have three more days to air and more exciting scenes to catch.

'Walang Hanggang Paalam' Finale, When is the right time to say goodbye?

11:41:00 PM


During the ECQ in 2020, 'Walang Hanggang Paalam' is the first teleserye to do the off-studio shoot with their different scenes. Also, the first team to test the process set by ABS CBN when it comes to the health and safety of their personnel, crew, and artists following the stand implemented by the Inter-Agency Task Force or IATF. Despite the different challenges faced, the Walang Hanggang Paalam team didn't falter in moving forward with the project. Professionally, they made an extraordinary teleserye for the Kapamilya viewers to keep them entertained during the quarantine period.

According to Director Manny Palo, even faced with the problems of Covid-19 and shutting down of the network, they continue their work even though they are uncertain if their project will still be shown on TV or not.

Now, 'Walang Hanggang Paalam' has finally shown its last episode, a teleserye that people and its artist will remember for the rest of their lives. It is a project that gave a different outlook on life and the entertainment industry.

As they wave their goodbyes in the ending scene of the series, we were able to grasp a moment to ask the actors, "When is the right time to say goodbye?" Fortunately, the cast shared their thoughts about saying goodbyes.

Angelica Panganiban candidly replied, "Kapag uwian naaa!!!" (When it is time to go home.) But of course, she also did gave her personal view about the right time to say goodbye. "Pinakaperfect talaga pag cut-off mo na.... ako naman siguro di ako naniniwala na... at some point kelangan mong mag-goodbye eh. Kapag hindi na siya tama. Kapag hindi na maganda yong kinakalabasan ng mga bagay. So, may mga bagay na kailangan mo talagang i-delete sa buhay mo, hindi lang naman to yong parang sa mga jowa mo diba.... yong nagkakasakitan kayo ng loob am pwede mo yong tapusin eh diba. Pwede kang mag-goodbye sa mga ganung klaseng tao. May taong nag-gogrow apart. Mga taong nag-iiba talaga and magpasalamat ka nalang sa experience nyo then goodbye pagka nararamdaman mong hindi na ikaw yong taong yon at hindi na rin sya yong taong yon. And goodbye... bye! "

Arci Muñoz gave her point of view about saying goodbye from a perspective about love. "Well, it depends on the circumstances. Am, is this about love life? If it's love and you think that you already poured your whole heart and your whole soul, your everything, and wala pa rin. Then maybe, it's about time you give yourself the respect and the love that you're supposed to give to another person. Maybe it's a calling. It's a lesson. Maybe it's time for you to love yourself first. That's the time you say bye to. If it's that circumstance, it really depends."

Zanjoe Marudo strongly expressed his thought that 'do we really need to say goodbye?' "Ewan ko depende sa sitwasyon eh. Magpapaalam ba talaga tayo sa mga tao na nakasalubong natin, nakilala natin sa buhay natin? Parang kahit naman na nagkahiwalay o siguro magpapaalam lang tayo pag sumakabilang buhay na tayo, sa tingin ko."

For Paulo Avelino, he never liked goodbyes. "Ah, I never like goodbyes ever. Kahit nung bata pa ko ayoko ng mga goodbyes, so parang... siguro para sa akin more than the goodbyes let's see you on another day or see you tomorrow. Ganun na lang siguro whether it's love or anything."

Ms. Cherry Pie Picache also shared her dislikes of goodbyes. "Ayoko rin ng goodbyes eh maybe good night. Hindi ayoko rin ng goodbyes... see you soon. Tama na, sakto na, ganun."

JC Santos also gave his point about love and when love becomes a game. "Ah, kapag naging love is a game na at naging competitive na ang love then it's time to say goodbye. I think."

So, beautifully they all have their different views about the right time to say goodbye. As for the teleserye "Walang Hanggang Paalam," it's not yet goodbye for them but see you on a different platform because you can still watch them on the different Kapamilya platforms.
