“Never knew he was a navy officer. God please protect him.”
“May Allah save him but he should resign now.... This is 3rd time having issue with them now.”
“I know the military runs on a different set of rules from civilian rules and not to sound or appear insensitive but until we don't know the nature of the infraction that led to his detainment so we should be careful in our comments. A highly regimented organization like the navy would not abuse its member unless there is a reason. He knew what he signed for when he joined them so please let us be guided.”
