  1. Condolences to the Bakr family. He showed he had the inner fortitude to stand up to the government. His 86 band of jihadist warrior would go on to unleash a kidnapping spree on Indian businessmen with other gangs following, such as never seen before in TnT. His kidnap list even made the headlines with Manning assuring the population that it is a targeted list.

    Good or bad history will be the judge.
