Git refusing to merge unrelated histories on rebase

During git rebase origin/development, Git had displayed this ERROR message:-
 

fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories 
Error redoing merge 1234deadbeef1234deadbeef

I am using the Git version 2.9.0 which has always worked out great in the previous version. My question is how could I continue this rebase which allows unrelated histories with the forced flag which was introduced in the new release?

In order to clarify your doubt, this default behavior has been updated since the Git 2.9 version. The merging git option used to allow the merging of two branches that do not have a base common which is again, by default. This amplifies a brand new history of an existing project which has been created and following which, got pulled by an unsuspecting maintainer, which has allowed an unnecessary parallel history which is merged with the existing project. This is not to allow this by default with an escape hatch but rather, why the command has been taught to us. The --allow-unrelated-histories line could be used in an unusual event that merges the past of the two given projects where they had started their lives independently.
