Once upon a time in a land far far away, in times much much better than these, a man was walking down the street, whence he came upon some children immersed in play. He was Omar Bin Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him). The children scattered nilly willy when they sighted him, save one who it appeared had no plans of budging. Omar Bin Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) approached him:
Omar (May Allah be pleased with him): What is your name, little child?
Answered the young one: My name is Abdullah.
Omar (May Allah be pleased with him): Why did you not flee like your peers?
He answered: Ya Ameer-ul-Momineen! I have committed no sin that I should be afraid and neither is the path too narrow that I should feel the need to widen it for you.
Omar (May Allah be pleased with him) was much pleased with the lad`s courage and the beauty of his reply.
Today: “Jab route lag jata hai”
Because apparently the path isn`t wide enough for both of us
Sigh! Democracy tujhe sallam
