{November 17, 2008}   Jose Rizal-Philippine National Hero

Dr. Jose Rizal

José Rizal (1861-96), Filipino physician, novelist, and nationalist martyr. The son of a wealthy Filipino planter, Rizal was born in Calamba, in Laguna Province. He studied medicine in Madrid and Paris and later in Germany, where he published his novel The Lost Eden (1886; trans. 1961), attacking the evils of Spanish rule in the Philippines. This and a second novel, The Subversive (1891; trans. 1962), won him wide recognition and helped spark a reform movement in the Philippines. Rizal was critical of the power exercised by Roman Catholic religious orders in his country and demanded political rights and equality for Filipinos, but he stopped short of advocating independence. After practicing medicine for a time in Hong Kong, he returned to Manila in 1892. The authorities there exiled him to the island of Mindanao. When a Filipino revolt broke out in 1896, Rizal was accused of having inspired it. Convicted of sedition by a military court, he was executed in Manila. He is honored as a national hero in the Philippines.


it seems na masyado mong hinahangaan si rizal. ganon din naman ako pero my pagdududa ako kung mas karapatdapat sya as national hero kesa kay bonifacio.nabasa mo na ba ang veneration without understanding ni renato constantino?it contains some info n prang mas karapat dapat si bonifacio as national hero…base sa pagkakatanda ko, ilan ito sa mga yun.. kaya daw hindi tinanggap ni rizal ang alok ni bonifacio to lead the katipunan ay dahil ayaw nyang isapalaran and status nya as ilustrado…hindi nya naiintindihan ang mga mahihirap na tulad ni bonifacio dahil hindi naman sya mahirap..another reason is hindi nya gustong magkaroon ng indipendence ang pilipinas. in fact, gusto nyang maging province ng spain ang philippines.ibig sabihin gusto nyang maging maS malapit ang pinas at spain.kontra yun sa hangad ni bonifacio na paglaya ng pilipinas.. anong masasabi mo? any violent reaction? sir, i don’t want to hurt your feelings. i just like to share some information..i’ll wait for your message…
