Asgar Ali is the second of the three sons born to Ali Zan in Uttar Pradesh. Asgar was sent to a madrassa like any other Muslim children for education. Asgar completed his tenth standard and began to work in a factory. At this time Asgar had peace-less and sleepless nights. Asgar became weary of the restlessness. There he began a journey to the source of true peace with many thorny and bumpy roads. Asgar, now a Christian apologist on Islam, shares his life transforming story with Jerry Thomas of Sakshi Times.
Moved by the Holy Spirit, the man instantly composed a song which became famous down the years. He sang: I have decided to follow Jesus. (3 times) No turning back, no turning back. Enraged at the refusal of the man, the chief ordered his archers to arrow down the two children. As both boys lay twitching on the floor, the chief asked, “Will you deny your faith? You have lost both your children. You will lose your wife too.” But the man sang these words in reply: Though None Go With Me, Still I Will Follow (3Times) No Turning Back, No Turning Back . . . . . The World Behind Me, The Cross Before Me (3 times) No Turning Back, No Turning Back. He was shot dead like the rest of his family. But with their deaths, a miracle took place.

When My Heart Is Overwhelmed - Hear My Cry, Give Heed To My Prayer - And My Eyes Are Dim With Tears - O Father, Make Them Clear - Lead Me To The Rock - The Rock That's Higher - Lead Me To The Rock That's Higher Than I - Lead Me To The Rock - The Rock That's Higher - Higher Than I
Everyday They Pass Me By, I Can See It In Their Eyes. Empty People Filled With Care, Headed Who Knows Where? On They Go Through Private Pain, Living Fear To Fear. Laughter Hides Their Silent Cries, Only Jesus Hears. People Need The Lord, People Need The Lord. At The End Of Broken Dreams, He's The Open Door. People Need The Lord, People Need The Lord.
