Davao City is home to a variety of ethnic groups, but one thing that is unique is that the city’s population is comprised mostly of Chinese.
This is a stark contrast to the surrounding region of Mindanao, where many of the same ethnic groups live.
In fact, according to a survey conducted by the Center for the Study of Ethnic Conflict (CSIC) and the Philippine Institute of Oriental Research (PIORR), the city of Davao has the highest proportion of non-Chinese residents of any of the six provinces.
It’s also one of the few cities in the country that is also home to the country’s largest Muslim population, who make up around 25% of the city.
While some Muslims are attracted to Davao because of its vibrant nightlife, the region also attracts some of the region’s largest ethnic Chinese, who live there as well.
The Davao Muslim community has been struggling to assimilate in the city, and some have even been accused of criminal activities like drug trafficking.
But according to local authorities, the issue is far from over.
The city’s local Muslim leaders have made an effort to address the issue through the creation of an Islamic Center, which was launched last year.
The center is also responsible for hosting an annual Muslim festival, known as Ramadan.
The organization has also hosted workshops and seminars for Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
In addition to the Islamic center, the Islamic Community Council (CIC) also organizes a number of events, like a “dance” called the “Hakkah” (the Arabic term for prayer), as well as events to teach Islamic culture and history to local children.
This year’s event, known to locals as “Hajjat al-Islam” or “Islamic Dance Night,” will be held on March 8.
The festivities will take place from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., which will also include an event called “Riyadh’s Daughters” featuring a performance of the popular song “Hindjazz.”
The dance will be led by a young dancer from the Davao city government, who is also known as a “cultural ambassador.”
Although the event is being organized by the CIC, the Muslim community in Davao is now concerned that the Muslim organization is trying to establish a presence in the region to further the city government’s agenda.
“We don’t want any association between the CICO and the Islamic Center because we want the Islamic community to be part of Davaao,” a local Muslim activist, who asked not to be identified, told News24.
“They are doing this to promote Islam in Davaoxos culture and to promote the Islamic values of diversity.”
In the past, the CICA has even tried to organize a meeting between the Islamic group and the Muslim leaders of the area.
But the event was quickly cancelled due to fears that the Davayan Islamic community would not agree to the group’s demands.
However, the organizers of the dance say they are still hopeful that the meeting will happen.
“I’m still optimistic, I’m just waiting to see how things go,” said an Islamic activist who asked News24 not to use his real name.
“It’s a cultural event and I want to see the dance, but there are some things that we can’t discuss, like the dress code.
I’m afraid the Muslim will reject that.
We just want them to be more respectful of their culture and their religion.”
The Muslim community, however, remains wary of the Davayans efforts to gain acceptance in the Muslim world.
“This is not the first time that they tried to change the culture of Davaya.
They even tried this in 2015 when the Muslim World League (MWL) met with the Davaysi Muslim community,” the local Muslim leader, who requested his real identity be withheld, told news24.
The MWL, an umbrella organization of Muslims, is also against the idea of establishing a center of Islamic study in Davay.
“The Davayas Muslim community wants to change their culture, but the Islamic leaders want to impose their own ideas,” he said.
“In our opinion, it’s just a political agenda.
They don’t have a good understanding of our culture.
We don’t need the center, we need the Islamic leadership.
We are against the concept of Islam in our culture, and we are not accepting any religious practices from Davayan Muslims.”
Despite these tensions, the Davaya Muslim community believes that the Islamic initiative is a positive move.
“Islam is very important in our daily life and it is the first thing that we want to do, but we don’t know if this will lead to the change of our community,” said a local mosque member who requested to remain anonymous.
“Because we are so small, we cannot really organize any events, so we have to work through the mosque and other organizations.
We’re hoping that the center will help the Muslims
