... The matter about which I am speaking with my mouth, write it; it is as if it is done by my hand; it is not a long matter, it is about barasa (rum), barasa, barasa, barasa,—it has ruined my country, it has ruined my own people very much, it has made our people become mad!  I have given a law that no one dares buy or sell it, and any one who is found selling it, his house is to be eaten up (plundered); any one found drunk will be killed...
