    Here's something that I'd never heard of before. The second Hur rebellion against British rule in India during the war.
    "Tribute continue to pour in for the great Soreh Badshah because of the nature of his death. He was hung to death on March 20, 1943, over a military court verdict of the colonial regime. Even today, the spirit of his followers and supporters is alive, and on his death anniversary they remembered how neither lucrative offers nor repressive measures of the colonial power could distract him from his mission. Right before his hanging, artial law was imposed in those areas where the Pir was influential, and where the members of Hur Jamaat were residing. Soreh Badshah launched the freedom movement against the colonial powers at the age of 21, while the colonial rulers made ruthless efforts to crush the Hur uprising and killed hundreds of followers."

    ....must've been dozens and more of uprisings...another good story here--about 'a ''normal''-typical-etc citizen going above and beyond the call
    ....like in many similar conflicts/etc, it's much ''easier''/safer/etc to not ''get involved''' .....they know it could mean death!! = yet, they still do it ....very brave, if you ask me ..especially for those with families -IMO
