Racism continues to plague the world and fighting it is a duty upon every single sane human being.
A racial comment was made in the Turkish circle by a person against Turkish football side Galatasary’s player Bafetimbi Gomis.
The loyal Galatasary’s fans, mostly Muslims if not all, championed a big banner with the legendary statement of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The Prophet (peace be upon him) had categorically more than 1,400 years made a firm stand against racism when he famously said at his last sermon:
“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over black nor does a black have any superiority over a white except by piety and good action.”
The inspiring stance of the fans was much applauded by people worldwide.
