    Will you ask what tradition compels them to practice genocide on the Rohingyas?

    I hope they talked about Rohinyas, aswell as jihadi terrorism in Sri Lanka against Christians. I am suprised with you with a muslim name, not mention the problem of islam terrorism in Sri Lanka aswell. Or do you only care about muslim lives in danger in Myanmar?
