Muslim Soldiers who fought in World War 1: Let us be proud

In the wake of the London Woolwich attack, many British politicians and Muslims have been openly expressing that they are proud that (colonial) Muslim soldiers fought in World War 1 ‘for their country’.

I would also like to express my pride at real Muslim soldiers who fought in World War 1, with a picture below of the ones I am proud of. These brave soldiers fought to defend their land against an Imperialistic global power trying to invade. Indeed, let us all be proud.

  1. And the Ottoman empire was not imperialistic? Of course it was, and used during a large part of its existence slave soldiers (as elite troops).
