This guy MAY NOT be a traitor. What is the definition of a traitor: Blindly follow the MILITARY RULERS, BOW DOWN AND SAY YES, FOLLOW THE TRADITIONS OF THE BRITISH AND AMERICAN MASTERS. He may have stood against the MILITARY PHARAOHS of our time! The price he is paying is the price all such brave people have paid in the past. Nothing new. To change this DEAD nation, we NEED SCORES MORE like him.

No convicted yet. There no such thing as "guilty until proven innocent" but it is "innocent until proven guilty"

With this jail sentence, he loses his rank and as such he is no more a brigadier. There is no question for giving him A Class in the prison,

No matter how great the cause is, there is nothing that can justify supporting People who blow up innocent people and chop of peoples heads and kill children in mosques. Which Islam teaches that?.
