In de paradijselijke omgeving van de Maladiven gingen de bobo's van de South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) vergaderen. Na afloop kregen de gastheren een monument van Pakistan met een buste van Jinnah (de architect van het Grootste Religie Gekkenhuis ter Wereld) en van Sri Lanka eentje met een leeuw (hun staatssymbool).
On the eve of the unveiling of the Pakistan monument, a mob reportedly led by the opposition Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM), the party of former president Maumoon Abdul Gayoom, toppled the bust of Jinnah. A day later, the monument was set ablaze and the bust stolen. The Sri Lankan monument was found doused in oil with the face of the lion cut off.
Staan deze reli-gekkies alleen? Welnee, ze zijn daar collectief reli-gek aan het worden. Er is heel veel Wahabi invloed.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Islamic Affairs has ordered the government to remove the monuments as they "breach the nation's law and religion". Islamic Affairs Minister Abdul Majeed Abdul Bari told the local media that the Pakistan monument was "illegal" as it "represented objects of worship of other religions".
Niet iedereen is ervan overtuigd dat meer islam beter is. En die wagen het te protesteren. Dat is heel ongezond.
Protesters calling for religious tolerance attacked with stones, threatened with death
The protesters, calling themselves ‘Silent Solidarity’, had earlier issued a press release stating that their intention was to “make the Maldives and the international community aware of the rising religious intolerance in the Maldives, and to condemn the Constitutionally endorsed suppression of religious freedom. We also denounce the increasing use being made of Islam as a tool of political power.”
“Silent Solidarity will be protesting against discrimination of all races, gender, sexual preferences and religious beliefs and supporting freedom of thought and expression. In our silence, we speak volumes,” the group’s statement said.
En hoe voorspelbaar verliep het?

Witnesses said a group of men threw rocks at the 15-30 demonstrators, calling out threats and vowing to kill them.
One witness who took photos of the attacked said he was “threatened with death if these pictures were leaked. He said we should never been seen in the streets or we will be sorry.”
Among those injured in the attack was Ismail ‘Khilath’ Rasheed, a controverisal blogger whose website was recently blocked by the Communications Authority of the Maldives (CAM) on the order of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs.
Rasheed suffered a head injury and was rushed to Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH).
“They started hitting us with bricks. They were aiming at our heads – we could tell they were serious and wanted to kill us,” Rasheed told Minivan News from hospital. “I was taken on a motorcycle to IGMH, but I could see them behind me still hitting my friends.”
Wie in de Islam zijn hersens gebruikt, zal zijn hoofd moeten missen.
