    The only thing Islam wants from Muslims is Justice and bear witness to justice. If emotions, vested-interests and biases try to divert a person from justice in some worldly or religious matter, his faith requires of him not only to adhere to justice but also if his witness is required in these matters, he should do so even if it puts his life in danger. He should uphold the truth by saying what is the truth and surrendering before it. He should adhere to justice and bear witness to it, and stick to it in his beliefs and deeds. This is called qiyam bi al-qist (adhering to justice) and mentioned in Quran 4:135 and Quran 5:8.

    Rest are man-made concepts like patriotism and there’s nothing wrong with them as long as they do not bring into question any ethical issue or stand against the value of Justice.
