Compensation not a Solution

The issue of compensation is becoming popular. Such practice is not healthy to a struggling country from the ethnic tension. By now compensation is demanded for what Britain had done so many years ago. The issue of compensation is becoming too popular, and for government to respond to it, then I think they should just establish a Ministry of Compensation.

This is to show that the government is ready to meet such demand, so that all who face similar circumstances can be compensated as well. There are many incident like this that has occurred in many countries but they do not ask for compensation, they just use it as a time of remembrance. Such event should be marked as an anniversary, where people can come together to remember the event with more meaningful understanding of the incident. It will be a heartedly approach than peace in the heart motivated by money.
