What if your relative was a communist? Call him comrade!

Mustafa Hamido


What your action if you discovered once a day that your relative was a communist. In our unconscious feeling, communist means unbelievable in God. This meaning is widely rejected from the people in your community who are deeply believing in God and fighting using words and actions against communists. I was shocked when I discovered that one of my relatives was communist and was organizing marches against the government. I asked myself a lot, was he fasting in Ramadan as we used since our childhood and was he believing in God? They are tough questions still unable to answer it. I am not going to condemn his past. It is his freedom in choosing his former doctrine. I know that he is paring now and fasting. He is a believer now.
