Comrades, get some, get some, fire at will

This post is a reply to an earlier post. I am a bit uncomfortable with reading posts with too many replies myself, so I decided to post this as a separate post so that the largest possible audience could read and take joy.
My dear friend Adnan. I value your commitment and contribution. In the present age, the only thing of value is information. It's what makes or breaks you. Most people keep it to themselves because they feel that it is what gives them the edge over others. Few believe that information should flow freely from mind to mind. You fall in the latter category. I've seen you evangelizing at academic venues with great zeal and effectiveness. I'm sure your intentions are very pure. People with such attributes over the entire human history, have faced criticism and opposition, so why should we be an exception? Time will soon tell who was right and who was wrong. But to me what matters is not to be proven right, but that there is an end to the suffering not of my own, but of all the people I live among. Alas, it seems like a far cry. One thing that keeps reviving my faith are my students, like Sohail Sarwar, Salman Mehmood, Faisal Nasim, Sabrina, Sarfaraz, Shoaib, and so many others that I can not name but I can see them on the screen of my mind's theatre. You, my dear students, are my heros. You, my dear students, are my warriors of the truth. Whether we win or lose, I'm glad we're fighting this war battle after battle, shoulder to shoulder, till the last man, till the last bullet. No retreat, no surrender.

I said it before, and I'll say it again, even though Thomas Jefferson was the first who said it.

FM, until we get ammunition (just kidding), the idea is to act as rightly as possible to show others that it is possible to behave in a mob.

We should all try to learn what we can and not repeat the past mistakes. We should stop promoting our political agenda's on Forum's that are not meant for that.

P.S. Thomass Jefferson said that and in his nation a person would have been sued to his last penny over such comments that were given by Mr. Adnan Hashimi. He is no better than those in the west who are promoting hatred against Islam. The only difference between them and him is that he has put the religion aside and is promoting ethnic hatred.

All right folks! "Mr. Anonymous" is here again. So, here I go again.

@Anonymous
I'd would prefer to be a racist, than to be traitor.
I'd prefer to get killed here than to run away to England to let other people get killed for me.
I'd prefer to promote ethinic hatred against a group of people who I believe to be worst traitors and the scum of this country, then to bow down to a traitor, and paint his name all over city walls.

P.S. Islam and Muslims are getting what they deserve. And for me, if it means choosing between being Muslim or being Pakistani, I would choose being Pakistani anyday.
