    If loving music, sharing music, and teaching music are a crime. Please take me away too! How long will be these injustices?
    These people are sacrificing what they have and their freedom and more for the principle of their Faith. Glory is thiers’. But let us hope that such Glory can be a thing of the past if the error of religious hatred can be quenched.
