The colonisation always makes suffering to the shadow-lands. The Indonesian nation ever felt it for long time. So, each country has a right to get its freedom. Now, look at Palestine and the other countries that they are still fighting shoulder to shoulder to get their independence. May Allah The Helper, help them to get it. As Indonesia got its independence. ألله اكبر, only Allah The Helper, and do the struggling only for Him.
