// This to me embodies Shi'a resistance. And honestly, I know I talk about it a lot but it is so important. It is so important for Shi'as to rise up and stand proud. We chose honour and death and the pain of life when we said Ya Ali. It was never meant to be easy. And it wont be easy because there are people who think that being Shi'a is something punishable by death, and others who act upon it. It saddens me when I see Shi'as who are ashamed to admit that they are Shi'a, because it's the doing of extremists who are sectarian towards Shi'as. And to my fellow Shi'as, don't look down upon those who don't admit that they're Shi'a. It doesn't make them any less Shi'a than anybody else, because in this world being Shi'a is something so very difficult. Sectarianism is something so widespread amongst muslims that many do not even realise they are sectarian. You don't have to go and kill a Shi'a to be considered sectarianism. Sectarianism is shown when you grimace when somebody says they are Shi'a. In statements like 'May Allah guide them towarda the right path/ the Sunnah.'. All we have ever asked is for you to leave us the hell alone. And 1400 years later, we are still being oppressed. So we will resist. We will fight and we will not sit idle. We learnt bravery from Haidar al-Karar and patience from Sayedda Zainab. With role models like this, we will be victorious.
