The apartheid government made Ahmed a hero for the people

AMINA DESAI

Ahmed was a very congenial man. He was always good with the neighbours. He was not born an extraordinary figure. He was a diffident man. Ahmed displayed his heroism in the qualities of a very ordinary man. The freedom that we have today did not just come about. Ahmed had showed that an ordinary man could accomplish heroic measures to foster his beliefs. He was always kind and a nice young man. The apartheid government made Ahmed a hero for the people. They created him. Ahmed gave his life for his people. The statement made by Ahmed during his detention indicates that he was a caring man who was prepared to sacrifice his life. TIMOL – A QUEST FOR JUSTICE (p.186)
