And Now A Sinha-Le Cab Service

The ‘Sinha-Le‘ sticker which has been picked up by vehicle owners is now even used as a brand name for cab services around the country.

“The sudden display of ‘Sinha Le’ posters and stickers in public places, private motor vehicles including buses and three wheelers, and on social media, gives the appearance of being part of an organized political campaign that seeks to exploit nationalist emotions” the National Peace Council said yesterday.

All manifestations of hate speech must be banned by law and ‘Sinha Le‘ hate campaign must be dealt with by a new legislation, said the National Peace Council.

      “All manifestations of hate speech must be banned by law and ‘Sinha Le‘ hate campaign must be dealt with by a new legislation, said the National Peace Council.”

      So this is the freedom of expression this NGO kakka is preaching?

      May Allah curse him.

        Allah (God Almighty) does not curse anyone, as He is above all that. Yet it is men who curse and swear when they lose control of the situation.

        It is further obvious you have a thing or two against NGOs, but that said, you also have lost sight of the fine line between end freedom of expression and start of hate speech (ie. when you start hurting the feelings of ‘others’ who are different from your own kind).

        Personally, I consider the idea to have animal (Lion’s) blood running in human species to be quite abominable, but if that’s what it takes to display courage and strength to maintain your hold on top of the food chain, SO BE IT. The rest of us dismiss such antics with contempt and simply laugh it off, whilst enjoying the comedy being dished out.

          The solution is simple:
          BOYCOTT this racist cab service and it will die a natural death. Racism is a BAD idea for BUSINESS.

          As any successful businessman knows, racism automatically alienates and excludes customers and product consumers of ‘other communities’..

          Sri Lanka consumers should show their power and start an anti-racist BOYCOTT MOVEMENT against companies that trade in racism and religious hate speach!

            I am sure this company has been registered under the Companies ordinance by the Registrar of Companies. How was this registration under the name Sinha Le permitted? Is’nt it -possible to cancel this registration?

      The cab service owner should be interviewed and made accoutable for his racial attitudes ..

      The kind of public banners must not be permitted by law of a country, if the state really care of all the folks of this country ( all srilankens)

        Ms Maralathoni,

        things are not easy in this part of the world as it is the case in Rome or anywhere.
        They dont trace, but let it go no matter kenda becomes kanda. As you said, it is easy to collect info about the links if authorities want it.

        Some easy taks, that we feel being on the west, are not practically easy in srilanka – that alone says that much about the nation and their today s stand – so call mid income earning country men cant even get passed due lawful provisions to resolve the problems. Latter has been the greater problem of this island nation.

        If law and order was enforced, if the bodies acted properly, politicans could turn srilanka a better place for all.. for sure.

      If Rulers cant go against the kind of racial statements, they have to the laws and their amendements passed which can gurantee no harm to any folks in this war torn country.
      Guys, just after recent incident reported in colonge, Germany, that north african refugees to have abused the women took part in new years eve on the 31 December, german laws reacted within 24 hours. Now they hve laws against any kind of criminal minded groups – giving them a warning clarly, why cant our rulers do the same or even more rigorous actions against these buggers that are on an effort bring new kind of divisions within the nation … why ? Enough is enough.. these or other kind of racial minded should be warned – if not react accordingly, they should be taken to custody. no other way can learn them a lession. That is a greater step if Rulers could do the job properly. Sure, rabid dog maharaja et al would expect the current good move to be sabotaged so that their culprits can take over the power to ruin the country again, but reglious leaders should go on protest seding a message across the vulnerable folks that there will be no space to devide the nation again.

      Else, ballige putha et al will get back to power and blood suck the nation again.

        Why a homeland for the Tamils? Don’t make me laugh. From your surname, I deduce you belong to the Karawe community, you like many of these “Sinhale” supporters are all purely descended from Tamil indentured labour that was imported into the island by the Portuguese and Dutch colonials and settled along the western and southern littorals. Now all of you the biggest Tamil haters supporters of the Sinhalese Aryan myth and supporters of Sinhalese extremist parties, and sites. May be to hide your recent largely low caste Indian Tamil origin. Oh by the way the word Sinhale has nothing to do with a lion or its blood. But is derived from one of the ancient Tamil names for the island Chingkalam, which means the land of the red soil or copper or copper coloured. The Pali version of this Tamil word is Sinhala.

          No matter minor fractions would have all kind of nationalistic agendas, this country belong to all. All srilankens regardelss of race, religion or other parameters that the minor racials groups are making to contrast.

          I believe, be it srilanka or any other part of uncivlized world, it is not easy to make the gullible, gawky, stupid majorities clear the need of eqality and the rights should be common to all. Specially the men like Buruwanse, Gonthadipila and the like are active in this society. They are like deadly viruses being transmitted to killl the entire folks. Their thoughts are comparable to virulent blood being transfused to sick people. Consequence is not the healing but turnign to even more sick after listening to them. This game is very easy in targetting high vunerable villagers, sometimes not restrict to villagers when looking at the last election results – even dwellers living within colombo and surburbs voterd for these NFF and former JHU men. I really dont know what goes through the cow dung filled heads of the people. EIther they are born sick or it is their nature not to think twice.

      Lanken issues of the kind are very devious.

      Today, having listend to a SLFP MP on the Hiru TV, he forces current regime to focus on the issue- SINHALE and investigate the accused. But in the same time, MR and Gotabaya are convincingly beleived to be the ones behind that.

      They the devious men, now are infiltrated in ruling coalition, opposition, and joint opposiion, so that an effect can be made in order to topple the govt. But always saying the other way around.

      These men would not even burn on the 180d egrees. So resistent to everything.

        Good idea.

        Must belong to the same blood group.

        It is the blood group, that determines compatibility, based on the genetic history.

        So, the Para-Sinhala-Le need to be matched with the other Para-Le.

        http://www.redcrossblood.org/learn-about-blood/blood-types

        The ABO Blood Group System

        There are four major blood groups determined by the presence or absence of two antigens – A and B – on the surface of red blood cells:

        Group A – has only the A antigen on red cells (and B antibody in the plasma)
        Group B – has only the B antigen on red cells (and A antibody in the plasma)
        Group AB – has both A and B antigens on red cells (but neither A nor B antibody in the plasma)
        Group O – has neither A nor B antigens on red cells (but both A and B antibody are in the plasma)
        There are very specific ways in which blood types must be matched for a safe transfusion

    Why is the government silent on this ? are they following the same process as former MARA regime’s inaction on BBS campaign. Though this is just a poster campaign now allsuch things do start small.

    I saw a video where a Muslim women ha s been beaten up by Sinhalese persons don’t know if that was a recent video or not. Then we have the painting the words in Muslims houses in Nugegoda.

    Whatever the government plan to do it not clear and too slow.

    To me it seems sudden rise of police brutality past few months also is due to a plan. Attack on the Party house by Police must be a 1st of a kind in Sri Lanka. Happy event ended by death. I strongly object to government for their slow response.

    It is not difficult to find few pro MARA fanatics to discredit the whole country as they don’t give a shit about the country all they care is survival of their own self.

We want American iPhones, we want other cell phones (all phones are western inventions)and Japanese bikes or cars and Indian three-wheelers, and the sudda’s kalisam (preferably American jeans), baseball caps, Russian vodka, Indian parippu, Hindi movies….the whole gamut.

      However do you see “Camel Le” tattooed on their forehead?

      In fact, those who believe in Sinha Le must wear Sinha mask when they go out threatening people.

      Here is something that I learned from Lion King:

      “Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.”

      —Mufasa to Simba –

      Mufasa is the king of the Pride Lands at the onset of The Lion King. He is the father of Simba.

          Until now I never thought Burqa has an important role to play in your life. Keep it in a safe place next time around you may need two of it to cover your bigotry and wipe your smug from your face.

            I said I could produce a counter-argument. For example, Sinha le is a racial matter but the burqa is a religious, and therefore private matter. To compare the two is ridiculous.

              paul

              Burqa is a cultural matter and not a religious one, which originated in the middle east where it protected women from equally bad summer and winter. Remember in the desert environment there in not enough water to wash nor protection from sandstorm. Somehow this protective clothing has become entangled with religious practices. There are evidences to suggest the practice of wearing burqa or covering face with mask was in fashion long before the advent of Mohamed and his Islam.

              If Sinha le is a racial matter it is the very reason we should disown it. By the way what has lion blood got to do with people?

              In order to carry on with an argument, one must have at least a contention and reason. Reasoning is based on asking questions such as why, what, when, how, where, who, why now, … and so on.

              Your assumptions are void of contention and reason. Therefore, you are in a dire strait unable or unwilling to develop your critical thinking. There is no argument when on lacks critical thinking.

              Please relax.

              Burqa, at its current status, is a religious devotion. The women wearing that believe they obey the god’s order. It is a subject for a different debate. Muslim women intention is not to differentiate them from others. In fact, many women who are wearing it are willingly getting along with other men and women.
              SinhaLe is created to show the hate. It means the SinhaLe is the symbol of Buddhist extremism. If the Islam religion turns out to extremism, then only Burqa will be considered as extremist symbol and comparable to SingaLE.
              Sinhale and SinhaLE have become two different connotations. On one of that, the SinhaLE is the blood of the lion. The original mythical story of a woman was indulged in bestiality was conceived with the intention of producing unrest between the races. The assumption of wild beast mighty was conceived only to create havoc. I doubt the learned pundit like Mahanama, who is Telugu priest, lived in Tamilnadu, Kanchi until the Bhathi marka revolution broke out and he was chased out, had travelled minimum three countries and had learned Sanskrit, Pali, Telugu, Tamil and the Sri Lankan Vernacular existed at time, might have lacked the knowledge of that a woman cannot sleep with lion. If he had happened to believe, he had lot of chance to estimate what would the leoman population the time he was living. It would not have been a country, may be village, that is it!. He did not try that, because that would defeat his extremism he way trying to saw. The current Sinhala Population, mainly the carrying SinhaLE stickers are couple generation ago migrated from Tamil Nadu to work as toddy tappers and cinnamon peelers. There is no SinhaLE blood in these Tamil men’s body, just the defective DNA that is too submissive for the masters and dance for their tune. When the masters are telling them to carry the sticker they are doing it.
              The other one is the Sinhale. This is the area not ruled by Europeans until the very end. These are the people felt down being not ruled by whites and to relieve that pain they captured and handed King Vickerma Rajasimhan over to whites. Now, these are the people left out of the land not sold to China. Now, they have spent too long time not underneath a ruling tree for the shade. What the meaning of this sticker campaign for this group is to bring the China in side, who are waiting impatiently in the water, Port City.

                It is not true that they believe in god’s order, for generations the women have been forced to believe in god’s order by men.

                There are millions of enlightened Muslim women do not believe in this part of god’s order. In Saudi women are banned driving. Who controls the law and order in that kingdom? Men. Who propagate and believe themselves to b guardians of Islam? Men.

                It should inform you Muslim women do not have a say in their life and death or their reproductive organs.

      @k. Soyza. Make Hay or Haste? Get to the point , It appears you will whole heartedly let the thieves to swindle the country rather than solve the cancerous problem.
      With modern medical advancements even cancer can be cured or delayed from taking hold of with appropriate approach.
      Do you have any idea how any political parties can solve this mammoth task. There’s always an opposition always point scoring and rejecting any cures for this man made problem in Srilanka.
      Not you nor anyone else is ready to think positively in favour of a peaceful and prosperous solution for this cursed nation.
      All are selfish in their own ways.

      If the Srilankans need to see the end of this curse may be caused by the cross breed happened as per the myths between the Human and the Animal or they call it the curse of Princess Kuveni this country needs external help to solve. There’s no blood in the majority to solve the Srilankan curse ever.
      It will forever remain a failed state supported by failed statesmen.

        “Make haste slowly” is a term to implement what the My3/RW has agreed to do at a pace that would not stir-up the emotions of roughly half the country that voted for MR. It is a difficult and a very sensitive issue and I am all for the implementation of the Accord/s (whatever that would be) to give this bleeding nation to get back on its feet after these four or five decades of agonizing turmoil in the economy and the civil rights of her people. We all know very well that Solheim and his people had the authority and the punch to push VP to conclude a workable solution during the Peace Accord. He did not, as Norway had its own agenda. Likewise, the Brits should have taken a stronger position as long ago as 1980 and put JRJ and the TULF on the right path, instead of leaving Indira and Rajiv to dictate terms to us which now has led to India taking almost full control of the military. With Solheim and Swire and the American ladies coming in and out don’t you think we are letting the Southern Extremists have a reason for taking-up issues? If this “sinha-le” thing gets out of hand, who is going to do what? That is diplomacy, not to show favour to one side or other.

          What a pathetic defence ? just because number of foreign delegates keep visiting our country and extending their good will , group of crazy lunatic, racist, scum bags get agitated ? why , what for ? is that because they believe that they are the chosen lot and the original owners of this land ? then what about me ? i’m also a sinhala Buddhist , but i don’t want that crazy lot to represent me ;furthermore, there are millions of decent sinhalase Buddhists who don’t want to subscribe to this utter stupid ” Sinha le” bullshit myth , what are we supposed to do now ? actually i have got a little plan up my sleeve , we the true sinhala buddists of this country should start displaying ” Monkey le” sticker on our auto mobiles as a counter attack for the racist lot . “Monkey Le” makes more sense than “sinha Le” as monkeys resemble far more closer qualities to humans than lions . i always wonder why these narrow minded racist “hora ganayas” claim to be the original custodians of Buddhism ? Galagodaatthe , Nalaka , Itthapane , Muruththuwe et al must be sent to jail for life , period ! Gota the goon is the source of all these unwanted/unwarranted racial segregations , unless this evil man is dealt appropriately , SL will face another 1983.

    If Islam is offended by free speech, gay marriage, women’s rights, democracy, bacon, and genuine human rights, it is not time for us to change. It is time for Islam to leave.

    • 3

      Muslims the world over, profess the religion of Islam, and are not against free speech, but against hate speech, as it arouses hatred, suspicion and animosity, ill-feeling, which are the root causes of failure in administration, breakdown in law and order and general strife. We Muslims want to live in SL in peace.

      Being gay is unnatural and our Creator did not create us so that we commit unnatural acts of sex between same sexes, but rather enjoy sex between male and females in most natural ways, and that too under the means of lawful marriage contract. Thus we Muslims by and large, still adhere to these principle rulings, although isolated exceptions (few and far between) may still exist in our own community.

      Women’s rights in Islam were asserted many years before during the times of the Prophet. The Prophet himself worked for a woman who owned her own business, whom he later married. He was 26 and first marriage, whilst she was 40 years. Women in Islam have every right befitting women, whilst men have to provide for them, feed them, clothe them and provide shelter. What the western media and the world promotes as Women rights is a sham, that is why there are such commonly and loosely termed conditions as ‘living together’, children born outside of wedlock, absence of parental care, respect and values, flirting, one night stands, wife swaps, the list can go on and on. Do you consider all of these immoral acts measure up to be Women’s rights?

      Just as Democracy is for the West, the same is true for Sharia, which governs the lives of all Muslims the world over. In its most simplistic form, it is two distinct forms of governance. If you care to know more about it, there will be many similarities and well as some differences between the two. The main difference being one is a set of man made laws, and the other is purely God’s laws which cannot be amended, improved upon nor diluted, and completely infallible. No country on earth has Sharia compliance laws fully applied in its purest and complete form, except it is applied in bits and pieces sometimes in twisted (by wrong interpretation and misrepresentation) form in some Middle Eastern Arab countries.

      Islam and Muslims are set to flourish throughout the entire world in future times, despite their many setbacks including terrorist threats in their name, false and hate propaganda against them, fear mongering, insults and promotion of Islamophobia. Yet, the call of Islam has become too irresistible to many, and the yearning to come into the fold and become better Muslims than Muslims themselves, is what is most striking. As Muslims, we think all, everyone who tastes death must enter paradise and no one must be left out, and it is towards this goal that we Muslims strive for, each in our own small way and god given talent, intelligence and strength. Not to displace others, evict or uproot them from their own lands, forcefully change their religions. No, no that is a mad man’s thinking, who knows nothing – but hatred.

      To the rest of the Muslims who write in these forums defending Islam. Never be ashamed to fearlessly express your views on the finer qualities of Islam so people understand and realize we mean no harm to them, but pray for their understanding and hidayath. If we do our part and it is accepted, then Allah may decide to grant them hidayath. If just one person gets that acceptance, it would be of immense benefit for us to enter paradise.

        Surely you must be more delusional than that illiterate merchant warlord in the desert to whom the non existent angel gabriel apparantly spoke in arabic, and which the merchant was able to apparantly take down from memory?

        Free speech in Islam? May I have a few examples? No religion has ever stood against free speech harder than Islam, and don’t you deny it. I need not quote the countless examples from recent history.

        Just tell me, if it is so free then when are we going to see a synagogue in saudi arabia? A buddhist temple? A church? One would be flayed alive for so much as wearing a talisman of another religion in that country, yet you expect to force your lifestyle on every country you visit and have some special right to be aggrieved when one condemns it, but can’t handle any criticism in response?

          Bagehot, why would you want to go to Saudi Arabia in the first place? Knowing well you cannot practice any religion other than Islam.

          Saudi Arabia is not proclaiming themselves to be a MULTI CULTURAL , MULTI ETHNIC nation as most other nations claim. So why bother asking the question of setting up a synagogue or a buddhist temple or a temple or a church there?

          If you hate their policy, do not enter that land and you are safe and happy.

          You keep living in your Land of the Free and be thankful to the Lord for having granted you “FREEDOM”.

            If you are possessed with the ability, I suggest you read the constitution of Sri Lanka, which proclaims Sri Lanka a Buddhist nation with it being given the foremost place. There is no mention of any other religion or the multi-culturalism you so speak of. The rampant Islamic encroachment on our lifestyles, setting up of mosques everywhere through illegally acquired land, together with calls to implement the idiotic Sharia, is a violation of our constitutional rights to propogate the fairytale of islam. And I say this as an atheist of non-buddhist background.

            Saudi Arabias luck will run out soon, along with those petro dollars. The only reason they need to rely on immigrants is the illiteracy and laziness of its
            population. With an average IQ of 84, which is borderline mental retardation and at the bottom of the pyramid, it is not surprising they have to rely on anyone other than themselves.

          Bagehot seems to be a damn fool.

          The citizens of Saudi Arabia is 100% Muslims. The expatriate workers (employees) who go there from other countries/religions are on temporary work visa, their jobs can be terminated at any time. These temporary expatriates should be thankful to for getting a chance to earn some petro-dollars.

          Why should a country with 100% Muslim citizens need a synagogue or a Buddhist temple or a church?

          Sri Lanka is multi-religious and only 69% Buddhist. Hindus, Muslims and Christians are also citizens of Sri Lanka.

        Marwan, you say,

        “Being gay is unnatural and our Creator did not create us so that we commit unnatural acts of sex between same sexes etc” Well it is the creator who created the man with homosexual tendencies in the first place. So the creator is unnatural or is defective in the creation department.

        Women’s right and Islam. Really. Hmm, I wonder if Muslim men do walk around in the blazing sun dressed in a black robe from head to toe. Or if women can marry many men?

        With regards to Sharia law being god’s law and unchangeable. Very strange that god’s law is so unforgiving, brutal, violent, utterly devoid of compassion. A god who gives you the uncontrollable urge to fornicate then suddenly jumping up and saying stone them to death mind you ‘stone them to death’. Very strange god indeed.

    This campaign is started to rouse the general public,who are now fed up
    with communal brain washing and the Govt.to take stern measures to halt
    this campaign and be called anti Sinhala Govt. Before bringing in laws to ban such campaigns, the police intelligence should go deep and find out the culprits and put them behind bars at the earliest, with enough publicity. This campaign is started by some powerful communal elements and they should be exposed at the earliest. Taxi drivers in Colpetty, Bambalapitiya & Wellawatte areas would not have put such posters on their taxis as their livelihood depends on Tamils & Muslims using this
    service, unless there is some powerful organization behind this move
    with a threat to side line those taxi drivers. This is not a people’s
    movement and govt. need not hurry but get to the bottom to find the
    organization or individuals, who started this campaign with an ulterior motive to disrupt the current peaceful atmosphere prevailing
    in the country from South to North.

    I found something interesting. I was talking to my neighbour – Jamis Maama of the bakery who produces excellent “roast pang”, about this “SinhaLe” “Business”. He said: “During my school days (in the 6 or 7th Grade) there was a monthly (as he remembered) paper by the name “SINHALE” published by the Communist Party of Sri Lanka. He said that paper was very popular and bought one and circulated among the students. He also said that there were NO protests or demand for its prohibition, but people loved to read it. How things changed over, perhaps sixty five or more years. Can someone affiliated to the Communist Party still living from those days confirm the publication of this paper “SINHALE”. One thing I forgot. He also told me that word “SINHALE” was also a show of protest over the name “CEYLON” that was used by the British Government to identify the island.

    The problem is people never realize that any form of fascism is self destructive. The Nazi fascists committed horrendous crimes before they all died by the sword.

    The Sri Lankan Sinhala people are so easy to manipulate. It is not only the village idiot who are taken up with this new hate campaign but the city slickers also.

    Buddhism and fascism that have always gone hand in hand surreptitiously in Sri Lanka have in recent times come out of the woodworks into the open.

    Hamlet: Thank you. If you read my comment from the beginning to the end you will see the “distinction” I made. Thus “SinhaLe” and “Sinhale”. Also I have said “SinhaLe”- “business” and “Sinhale” a “publication” of the Communist party. So you will see, I have noted the difference from the beginning to the end.

    If the Sri Lankan government is allowing the Sinhala Racists/extremists to display “Sinha-Le” posters and stickers in public places, in motor vehicles including private buses and three wheelers,allow people to wear “Sinha-Le” T-shirts, and do business with “Sinha-Le” label (such as cab service) then they should also allow the Tamil people of North and East to display “Tiger” posters and stickers in public places, in motor vehicles including private buses and three wheelers,allow people to wear “Tiger” T-shirts, and do business with “Tiger” labels. If the Sinhalese are allowed then why not the Tamils?

    “Sinha-Le”… Wired thinking people look at this word in blinker.

    Sinha-Le Cab Service…..
    WHOEVER ESTABLISHED IT……… , “WHAT A BRILLIANT IDEA”
    ITS ALREADY HOUSEHOLD BRAND NAME. ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE.

    WISH IT COULD OFFER A VERY COMPETITIVE FARE SO THAT THE COMMON MASSES TOO COULD BENEFIT.IF IT OFFERS A GOOD AND A RELIABLE SERVICE IT COULD BRING A HEALTHY COMPETITION TO FARES AND UPGRADE THE TAXI TRADE.

    On a business aspect, hope THE Sinha-Le CABS can introduce a reliable & affordable service to the people.
    WISH THEM A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS VENTURE.

    Quote : “Oh by the way the word Sinhale has nothing to do with a lion or its blood. But is derived from one of the ancient Tamil names for the island Chingkalam, which means the land of the red soil or copper or copper coloured. The Pali version of this Tamil word is Sinhala.”

    King Richard of England in the middle ages was called Lion Heart not because he had a heart transplanted from a lion but for his bravery.In Sri Lanka, playing on the ignorance of the people the Rajapakasas try to give the impression that the the Sinhalese people are the descendants of a king who perhaps had been tranfused with the blood of a lion. What a shame. Bensen

    As usual The Muslims have gone back to bed , .. all forgotten.. and all is well , until they are in deep well.

    If Muslims believe Maginda rasa have forgiven and forgotten, they are sadly mistaken .

    Today sadly we saw a President sound already defeated and no energy to move on, he was very clear he is not going to take any action against the Rajahs ,I do not blame the man , how can you challenge a supper rich family , one of the richest in the world today and very smart too ,there is no way you can prove that they have even touch a cent in the Country ,or else do you think the whole family will be here? Why did Basila come back ? because he knows well he can not be touched .

    Already huge funding is done to each household (of the Majority) ,if another election is held he will win with 100% Sinhala vote ,not just Buddhist but The Sinhala Catholic too and the rest are bonus from the upcountry Tamils. to whom you need not give anything just give thoda whatever he wants and that is it.

    The President is full aware he can not hold onto the position any longer, look at the super confidence of Gota from how he looked at the beginning.

    The Blue brigade is in full swing , they are working 24 -7 , well paid and remember petrol is cheaper than ever today ,, .. you know whom am talking of.

    The new Sinha le,is the Sri Lankan version of 969 of Myanmar. Today Myanmar does not have a single Muslim MP in the Cabinet and that is exactly what is been prepared to be done with the future Cabinet . there will be only Sinhalese ,and Estate Tamils.

    They are waiting till Ranil clears all the issues with the international communities and then take the whole Country on a grand platter.

    And sadly Muslims may have to get used to the idea of future Rohingya style life , what to do, when they have decided their own fate, , even God can not help, after all they have decided to follow their brethren in arabia , They are so fragmented in their religion , they can be easily eliminated . Well pat your beards men and repeat- God bless the House of Inbu Saud.
