‘Wag magpaloko sa mga impostor’: Titulong “Datu” ni Baron Geisler fake news

“His Majesty wishes to inform the public that the recent issuance of a fake royal title to Philippine actor, Mr. Baron Geisler, is not from the legitimate Sultan of Sulu & North Borneo.”

Ito ang klaripikasyon sa Facebook ng Royal House of Sulu, sa ngalan ni Sultan Muedzul-Lail Tan Kiram, sa paggawad ng titulong “datu” sa aktor na si Baron Geisler.

Setyembre 10 nang gawaran ng nasabing titulo ang aktor nina “King” Raja Mohammad Mamay Hasan Abdurajak at “Queen” Maria Makiling Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdurajak, sinasabing “tagapagmana” ng nabanggit na sultanato, dahil humango umano ang dalawa sa panibagong “spiritual maturity” ni Geisler.

“The “Royal Imperial Lupah Sug Islamic United Kingdom of Sulu and North Borneo” lead (sic) by Mohammad Mamay Abdurajak and Helen Fatima Abdurajak, who are both cmmoners with no royal blood, is not even recognized by the Philippine government as one of the claimants to the Sultanate of Sulu,” ayon sa opisyal na pahayag.

Ayon naman kay Amir Mawallil, miyembro ng Bangsamoro Transition Authority sa ulat ng Philstar.com, hindi niya kilala sina Abdurajak.

“First of all, it is my first time to hear the names of this King and Queen. At least to my knowledge and understanding of the Sulu Sultanate, there is no King Raja Mohammadmamay Hasan Abdujarak and no Queen Maria Makiling Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdujarak,” saad ni Mawallil sa Facebook.

“Secondly, we do not call them kings or queens. We call them “sultans” or “dayang-dayang.” Basic fact-checking would lead to these facts and to who are really the descendants,” paliwanag pa niya.

Parehong inusig nina Sultan Kiram at Mawallil ang midya at ang publiko na maging mas maingat sa mga paniniwalaang pahayag.

“We urge the public not to be mislead by these false pretenders,” saad ng Sulu Royal House.

“I hope the media, and the people, will be more circumspect. The family of King Raja Mohammadmamay Hasan Abdurajak and Queen Maria Makiling Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdurajak do not speak in our name,” ayon kay Mawallil sa hiwalay na post.
