A cunning man

A cunning man

by Rishad, Galle

A man sees a Muslim boy hitting a Sinhalese boy on the road. He says “I should go tell this to my master and chase Muslims away from this country.” He runs towards the village shouting, “Our religion is going to be destroyed. Is there no one who will challenge this?” The villagers believe him and rush with knives to the Muslim boy’s house. Another man, who had witnessed what happened, explains that the Muslim boy is not at fault. The villagers apologise for being hasty and the troublemaker leaves in shame.
