In an interview before he died, Salah Farah said this:
“They told us if you are a Muslim, we are safe. There were some people who were not Muslim. They hid their heads,” he said.
However, he recalled to Kenya’s The Daily Nation that people were told to separate but they refused.
“We asked them to kill all of us or leave us alone.”
Explaining his actions, he told Voice of America earlier this month that “people should live peacefully together”.
“We are brothers.
“It’s only the religion that is the difference, so I ask my brother Muslims to take care of the Christians so that the Christians also take care of us… and let us help one another and let us live together peacefully.”
In the same attack, Muslim women gave their hijabs to men, to protect them. I don’t know, brothers and sisters. Sometimes the humanity just swallows your heart.
