Ang nais natin ay pagbabago sa abscbn hindi ang pagsasara nito. Nasa panahon tayo ng humahagupit pa ang mata ng covid 19 sa labas ng mga bahay natin at nagbabanta na makapasok at manalanta hindi po mainam na magtagal ang pagsasaayos ng franchise ng aming network ito ang oras para harapin ito dahil kailangan ng information ng mga pilipino sa buong mundo at lalong kailangan ng trabaho ng nasa industria ng telebisyon at pelikula. Umpisahan na kagyat ang pagdinig dito at unahin harapin ang mga dapat baguhin. Mga kababayan nasa peligro ang bawat buhay ng Pilipino at ang economia ng bansa naniniwala ako na ang lahat ngayon ay bukas sa pagbabago at handang sumunod sa kung ano ang dapat maitawid lang nating lahat sa pagsubok at makaahon ang Inangbayan Pilipinas. “But there is something else. We must always remain on guard from the mischief of the whisperer who comes quietly and blows an air of suspicion into the hearts of people and withdraws (114: 4-5). The Qur’an – the final, the eternal, the complete, and the unchangeable Book of Allah – ends with these verses. That must tell us how important it is to be on guard from such whisperers. That would enable us to harness the creative energy that flows within us for the higher good. Only then would we be able to make the best use of the synergy that comes into play when we work together in a spirit of cooperation based on mutual respect and trust. If that happens there is no way a community, a people, or a nation cannot but prosper materially and spiritually.” -https://www.islamicity.org/12964/working-together-some-thoughts-and-reflections/

In a lengthy Instagram post, the 50-year-old actor defended the importance of acting on the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise, citing the importance of disseminating information about one of the biggest enemies of the nation right now — the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“Ang nais natin ay pagbabago sa ABS-CBN, hindi ang pagsasara nito. Nasa panahon tayo ng humahagupit pa ang mata ng COVID-19 sa labas ng mga bahay natin at nagbabanta na makapasok at manalanta,” he wrote. 

He went on: “Hindi po mainam na magtagal ang pagsasaayos ng franchise ng aming network. Ito ang oras para harapin ito dahil kailangan ng information ng mga Pilipino sa buong mundo at lalong kailangan ng trabaho ng nasa industriya ng telebisyon at pelikula.” 

Padilla then urged the government to start acting on the renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise, highlighting the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the country’s economic issues are more important right now.

Umpisahan na kagyat ang pagdinig dito at unahin harapin ang mga dapat baguhin.

Mga kababayan nasa peligro ang bawat buhay ng Pilipino at ang economiya ng bansa naniniwala ako na ang lahat ngayon ay bukas sa pagbabago at handang sumunod sa kung ano ang dapat maitawid lang nating lahat sa pagsubok at makaahon ang Inangbayan Pilipinas,” he stated. 

Towards the end of his post, Padilla shared a verse about mutual respect and trust from the Quran — the sacred text of the Muslim religion
