The tyrant dies and his rule ends, the martyr dies and his rule begins." - Soren Kierkegard

The battle of good versus the evil is an age old phenomenon. Every religion has some story or  other to show us the 'right' path from the 'wrong' one. Hinduism celebrates the victory of Lord Krishna over the demon Narakasura as Diwali. Christians remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as a supreme sacrifice in the way of God, and so do Muslims commemorate the martyrdom  of Imam Husain, the grandson of the Prophet.

There is of course the physical suffering in martyrdom, and all sorrow and suffering claim our sympathy, the purest, most outflowing sympathy that we can give.

But there is a greater suffering than physical suffering. That is when a valiant soul seems to stand against the world; when the noblest motives are reviled and mocked; when truth seems to suffer an eclipse. It may even seem that the martyr has but to say a word of compliance, do a little deed of non-resistance; and much sorrow and suffering would be saved; and the insidious whisper comes: "Truth after all should never die."

The thing is to find a truth which is true for me, to find the idea for which I can live and die." Soren Kierkegard
