Please note that this hero was a Hindu, not Muslim. Shah is a Hindu surname. This man was a Gujurati by descent.
The stories coming out about this make the event more and more tragic.
Actually, to be sure, both Hindus and Muslims have the surname Shah. This is one of those cases where it is difficult to tell simply by his name what religion he is. In any event, this is one of those cases where I don’t think his religion or ethnicity truly matters, unless someone is a special interest “activist” group that wants to exploit his heroics for his or her own ulterior motives.
