Last week, two young men sacrificed their lives when they stopped an ISIS suicide bomber from entering a mosque in Saudi Arabia. The suicide bomber blew himself up right then and the men lost their lives.

The friends were Mohammed Hassan Ali bin Isa and Abdul-Jalil al-Arbash, are now being hailed as heroes for turning the attacker away from the Imam Hussein mosque in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.

Eyewitnesses claim the man was disguised as a woman and tried to enter through a closed female entrance before going to the main gate, where the pair were manning a civilian checkpoint.

“Both friends chased the bomber away when he tried to enter the women’s section of the mosque in the south entrance and died when he detonated the explosives in the mosque car park. They saved a lot of lives by stopping the bomber from getting inside the mosque, They are both heroes.†said Mohammed Idris, an eyewitness.

Abdul-Jalil was reportedly 25 and had recently returned from studying at university in the US, getting married just days ago.

The Logical Indian salutes these bravehearts for saving so many lives and proving that those who save are bigger than those who kill.
