Let me share my thoughts about this issue.
Yes, napunit ang flag. And there’s two assumptions that can be made.
1. It was accidentally ripped. Why? Kasi everyone wanted to take part in passing the flag around. There’s an upper and lower part. So, from there, we can rationalize that they all wanted to touch and pass the flag. Thus, napunit siya.
2. It was intentionally ripped. Why? The word intentionally explains it already.
BUT, WE ARE NOT NU STUDENTS. We don’t know kung ano talaga rason nila. If the pride flag as accidentally or intentionally ripped. Ang akin lang, LET US STOP MAKING AN ISSUE AND ASSUMING THINGS. Kaya nagkakaroon ng sigalot between universities instead magka-isa for the betterment of our country. Hintayin natin kung ano ang response ng NU about the “issue.”
Personally, tho, I think accidental lang siya. :)
