What goes round comes around. Millions were killed by muslims in last 1300 years in this sub-continent alone. Chakmas (buddhist) were persecuted and killed in east pakistan (now bangladesh) during the 50's and 60's on a regular basis. God's wheel of justice works in strange ways.

india and pakistan has some kind of sibling rivalry.... they are against each other but always together. both of them are inseparable.

its time both nation should reunite just like east germany and west germany. though it seems a fantasy,the results wld b nourishing.

and about rohingyas, the UN should definitely give it a look. and when we say UN,its the whole world that should work together.

WE ARE HUMAN FIRST,THEN WE HAVE NATIONALITIES.... God must be angry seeing his creation going wild !!
