Robin Padilla receives go-signal to build Muslim cemetery 1MANILA, Philippines - The government of Norzagaray, Bulacan has granted the request of action star Robin Padilla to build a Muslim cemetery in the area.

After 5 years of negotiations, Padilla said he finally got a clearance to build the cemetery. The action star even bared that he and his men already started the construction of the memorial park.

"Kaya pagkakuha namin ng papeles ay inayos namin lahat. Inayos namin ang kalsada at puwede na po kaming maglibing," said Padilla.

Padilla, whose Muslim name is Abdul Aziz, meaning “Servant of the Almighty," said the cemetery is meant to help his Muslim brothers.

"Alam ninyo problema po 'yan talaga ng kapatiran ditto. Isipin ninyo kapag may namatay ie-eruplano pa pabalik ng Mindanao. Sa hirap ng buhay, malaking pera ang kailangan mo," he said.

Reports said Padilla has already raised P1 million for the building of the cemetery.
