Working in the dairy industry is hard work. It requires a huge amount of dedication to work before dawn every day in often harsh and difficult conditions.

Sehabudin stands in his former home that was destroyed by an anti-Ahmadiyah mob. Syahidin has been attacked for his faith so many times that he keeps a record in a tattered notebook that lists each instance of hate, each time an angry mob rampaged through his village, and each time he watched helpless as his home went up in flames. Syahidin is a member of the Ahmadiyah Muslim faith, a sect of Islam that believes that Indian religious leader Mirza Ghulam Ahmad—not Prophet Muhammad—was Islam's f
