Petition: Bring Tigrinya (Ge’ez) language back to Google maps of Eritrea!

The language Tigrinya does not appear on Google maps of Eritrea. Why not? Tigrinya and Tigre are the two main languages of Eritrea spoken by over 90% of Eritrean population Tigrinya being the primary national language

The language Tigrinya does not appear on Google maps of Eritrea. Why not? Tigrinya and Tigre are the two main languages of Eritrea spoken by over 90% of Eritrean population Tigrinya being the primary national language of Eritrea while English and Arabic languages are both considered the two main foreign working languages. In the old classic Google maps Tigrinya and English languages were rightfully used to denote all the name of places including cities, towns, roads, etc. But right now Tigrinya language has been made to disappear not only from the Google maps of Eritrea but also from the 70 plus languages that Google Inc supports.

    Those commentators with tigrinya (habesha) names wants to extinct their own language just because they hate tigray people , Why do you still keep your tigrinya (habesha) name just chage your name to Quaranic arabic name? I you are all muslims hiding behind tigriya name? No body hates his own name, culture, custom, language unless you are imposters? For the real person Ahmed Salih are you saying tigrinya people are tigray hence they get out of eritrea? that is what you implying? we are saying tigrinya is our eritrean language and should be respected internationally as an eritrean langusge so what has got to do with tigray or ethiopia unless you want to deny our existence just like jebha(elf) and osman sabe who were telling the arab countries that entire eritreans are muslims arabic speaking people.Let me tell you undeniable facts when lebanese, palestinians,Syrians were comming to eritrea vist and train elf soldeirs , Jebha were hiding christian girls who have crosses on their forehead so the arabs do not find out about their lies. It did happen. I did not want to mix the issue of politix here but if you wont to ply politics eritrean muslims have been sucking our blood since the inception of shifta awate. As Eritrean kebesa or christians we are one clan wirth tigray , our problem is with Weyane and Hegdef. The more you deny our existence as eritrean tigray the more we get closer with our next of kin tigray people, come on tel us also we should hate our own bible because we share the same bible with tigray. We fall for it once for awate muslims we are not going to fall again. Shame on you you trick me once and shame on me if you trick me twice.

      What does Sovereignty got to do with whether or not one finds next of kin in a neighbor country? Eritrea has nine ethnic groups and every single group finds itself next of kin in all bordering countries. This phenomenon is not peculiar to Eritrea, it is rather very common around the globe. I don’t understand what the fuss is about Tigray and Tigrigna??? We have our country and they have theirs!

      • Koubrom November 14, 2016

        Well it’s intend to divid the opinion of the people of Eritrea and weaken it’s unity .
        some even say we are agazian something ridiculous and we are more close with Tigray than our own brother who shade their blood for our country . Smart Meles Zenawi created the tools necessary for that

      Mr. NEFAHITO
      I try to ignore you but you remind me of our friend Rahwa that had been absent for long time in this forum . Luckily as usual our CHAMELEON found available space to be used for color
      change ( make-up ) from massawa looks to rahwa . Anyway I decide not to subject for unnecessary personal attacks and sinful reaction because you are worthless & disrespectful participant that needs to get ignored .

    Dear Habtu

    The disgraced blogger known mostly as Teclay (50+ nicknames) is a Tigrean who appears to have either lived or born in Eritrea. He has so much hatred for anything Eritrean. Throughout the years here at Assenna forum, he has contributed nothing but insults to Arabs and Eritrean Muslims.
    The worst part is that he thinks Eritreans will fight each other if he manages to create a hate atmosphere among us by posing as a Tigrigna speaker from Highlands and insults Eritrean Muslims.
    His cheap tactic is to first post a comment, and using another nickname posts supporting comments.
    He is exploiting the fact that Assenna has not been able to properly authenticate its visitors. The day that happens you will not see him here. He is a shifta.

    • Habtu October 15, 2016

      Dear Wedi Hagher,
      Thank you for the input. He is disturbed disgraced loser. He won’t get any comment from me any more!

    ህዝቢ ይኹን ሃገረ ኤርትራ ብናይ ገዛእ ርእሱ መበቆላዊ ቋንቋታት መንነቱ ክብሩ ውራሻኡ ክገልጽ: ማንም ሰብ ይኹን ባዕዳዊ ኣካል ክኽልክሎ ወይ ክምንዝዖ ኣይክእልን እዩ። ገለገለ ዉሑዳት ሰባት ወይ ቁንጩ ቁንጮ ማሕበራት: ንመንነቶም ቋንቋንታቶም ወይ ስርዓቶም እንተፈንፈንዎ ወይ እንተነዓቝዎ: ካልእ ኩሉ እቲ ዝበዝሔ ኤርትራዊ ከምኡ ይገብር እዩ ማለት ኣይኮነን።

      Eritreans are proud people with rich culture and identity . Haters had been saying all the
      nonsense accusations for many years based from their self contained inferior complexions.
      And we know the source of such kind biased attitude to blackmail Eritreans identity . As a
      matter of fact we don’t give them any consideration because their mentality has been stuck at old mentality of FEUDALISM (zemen mesafnti) .
      Our society experienced with forced foreign languages ( Italian and Amharic ) which made
      them open minded to tolerate others , This unique influence might irritate some jealous people .

  • Habtu October 18, 2016

    Appears that there is some confusion on some people as to what Eritrea and politicians are about. Anyone who cannot differentiate between the two is doomed to fail.
    Eritrea is a country with defined borders. This was achieved with somber sacrifices including martyrdom and determination from the entire population including outstanding students from comfortable and the best educational places such as Harvard, Wisconsin (Madison), MIt, California, Oklahoma, Texas, Moscow State (Russia), Kiev (Ukraine), Germany, Italy, etc etc…. If Eritrean sovereignty is in danger, no question that the current generation will follow suit in even bigger numbers! As far as the current government is concerned, got not so much of enthusiasm for it.

    In my book we have a fight to establishing a lawful government. Awradja, Haimanot and jiniefrit are henkakie! Try to see the bigger picture and place a law abiding government for all!!!!!!!
