WE SALUTE YOU ABDUL HAJI - Kenyan Somali Moslem Man Who Saved Many in the Westgate Mall Attacks




Every now and then i like to post unrelated movie stories here - and I thought this story was so beautiful. 
.
Well as you all know the recent tragedy that befell our brothers and sisters in Kenya, as those coward squirrels called Al Shabbab Terrorist attacked their Westgate mall and killed innocent civilians and held many hostage for days. When the story broke, one particular image which i saw and that broke my heart because as you all know i love kids immensely. I love love love kids especially babies and toddlers and so you can imagine when i saw this image above, I just lost it. Thats a brave lil girl right there and ofcourse her Guardian Angel Abdul waiting to help save her from those monsters.

Former Defense Minister Yusuf Haji’s son Abdul Haji was photographed rescuing many victims of the Westgate attack. He told NTV‘s Mark Masai and Smriti Vidyarthi about how he got to the Mall and helped rescue many civilians.
.
Abdul Haji said in his interview:
.
“I am angry at what I saw, what those people did, and the claim that they did it in the name of Islam,” he said yesterday, insisting on being interviewed in a public place in what he said was a sign of defiance to terror. “I am a Kenyan-Somali and I am Muslim; Islam does not advocate violence. They are doing the opposite of what Islam teaches,” he said. He, however, is a reluctant hero. “I don’t feel like a hero at all. That girl who ran towards me is brave. That’s bravery. I don’t think I was that brave at her age but if I could save lives, I could do it again.”

Watch his interview below for details:

Abdul Haji, 38, (A Married Man and father of 4 daughters) was in a meeting at Yaya Centre when he received an SMS from his elder brother. “Stuck in Westgate. I think it’s a terrorist attack. Pray for me,” it read. It was a moment he had been dreading for two weeks after a local television station exposed his brother, an undercover counter-terrorism officer, in an investigative programme. Since then, the family of Senator Yusuf Haji has been receiving threats and warnings from people believed to represent the Somali-based Al-Shabaab Islamist group. 
.
Mr Haji quickly excused himself from the meeting and dashed to Westgate. It was almost 1pm on Saturday, September 21. A licensed gun holder and gun enthusiast, Mr Haji was introduced to guns by his father, the Garissa senator who is also a former defence minister and long-serving provincial administrator.

Elliott Prior - Our Mini Hero who saved mom, sister and self.

Another story that also touched by heart is of this lil boy who told one of the terrorist man "You are very bad man" as that evil man was about to kill him and his mom and sister, Those words by the 4yr old boy stopped evil right in his tracks, he gave the lil boy chocolates and said to him " I am very sorry" yet went on his way to do what he came to do. I swear kids are Angels on this planet, see why i love em.?

A four-year-old British boy survived the bloody Kenyan shopping mall attack after standing up to a terrorist gunman and telling him: “You’re a very bad man.” Elliott Prior, from Windsor in southeast England, showed great courage when men with AK47s stormed the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi on Saturday, the Sun reports. He was protecting his mother Amber, who had been shot in the leg. As a gunman approached him, his mother and his six-year-old sister Amelie, he shouted: “You’re a bad man, let us leave.” Surprisingly, the gunman appeared to take pity on the family. After going so far as to give Elliott and Amelie candy bars, he allowed them to escape with their mother, saying, according to the Sun: “Please forgive me, we are not monsters.”
