Maaf, ketika ini aku sedang 'membedah siasat' karya hebat ini. Tunggu ulasan aku nanti ye!
“How do you value truth, Akeed?”
“It’s part of virtues which I value more than everything else.”
“Including your own life?”
I sat mute.
“We are now running against the clock. We’ve got to move fast, got to get everything cleared out.”
I was confused.
“Don’t be easily distracted. The truth is not simply visible to the naked eyes, not anymore. When people believe so much in media reports, history itself may conceal the truth. Only the chosen ones can see.”
Akeed Yahya is a PhD student at the Ohio University, United States of America. His objective in life is to discover the authentic essence of virtues through his involvement in watchdog journalism. Having faced great ordeals during this journey, like being shot in the city of Fallujah in the Iraqi al-Anbar province, there are two traits he cannot simply brush aside - tender solicitude and persistent inquisitive nature. These traits have driven him to travel to the Middle East to contend with some hard-truths about Egypt’s conflict and the aftermath of the Iraq War.
Akeed’s dauntless journey explores every aspect of journalism, philosophy and religion. The book is an interesting read for those who yearn for something with a different twist.
