    I feel the Cardinal is going a little to far.Please do not get involved in political and the security affairs. What you did to calm down the different communities, are well appreciated. Thank you Sir.

    No human is responsible for the problem. Only liquor shop is the reason to start a problem. That is human nature, putting the blame on others head.
