Muslim Rulers and Rebels

University of California Press

This chapter describes the watershed decade of 1968 to 1979 in Cotabato, a period of sectarian violence and armed rebellion, and one of economic devastations for many Muslims. It discusses the emergence of a Muslim counterelite and explains how the declaration of martial law in 1972 ignited an armed separatist insurgency throughout the South. The chapter also highlights the decision of the established datus of Cotabato to denounce the rebellion and align themselves with the national state that had underwritten their local rule for more than seven decades.

Keywords:   sectarian violence, armed rebellion, Cotabato, Muslim counterelite, armed separatist insurgency, martial law, datus
