The Price of Freedom – Hasan Tiro

Introduction by Teungku Hasan di Tiro

I write this book in preparation for my death, shaheed – a witness to an idea that had earlier been made sacred by the spilled blood of my ancestors and recently by the spilled blood of my loyal followers.

The value of a thing is not determined by what you can do with it, but at what price you are willing to pay for it.

Freedom means that we take full responsibility for ourselves, our people, and our country; freedom means that we maintain the distance that separates us from others; freedom means that we are no longer afraid of hardship, difficulties, privation or death: he who has learned how to die can no longer become a slave or a colonial subject.

He who wants to be free must always be ever ready to go to war and to die for his freedom. “The free man is a warrior”.

To preserve our freedom, our forefathers had suffered all, sacrificed all, dared all, and died. Now is our turn to do no less.
