We all know that in many media they will talk bad things about Islam and Muslims but the main side of Islam is peace, brotherhood, equality, justice, and to love each other. something like ISIS has nothing to do with Islam and what prophet Muhammad teaches us. ISIS is an ideology that will come from Yazid and his dynasty, sadly we can see those harmful thoughts in all history and in every religion and every turn of history. we should fight with those ISIS-like thoughts with proper attractive media like animations and games, and that's why we make "Farewell".

Mahatma Gandhi: ”I learned from Hussain how to achieve victory while being oppressed. My faith is that the progress of Islam does not depend on the use of sword by its believers, but the result of the supreme sacrifice of Hussain.”
