    • How about...#Namethatpolitician or #NameThatGangmember ????
    • Umar Naseer is afraid of darkness, because he is dark within! Yes! Gangs do not seem to fear be it light or dark! They are blessedly capable of striking anytime!
    • My nomination for squad leader "Nagoo Balhu"
    • The one and only UN should be more responsive but the flaw is only state parties can have access to UN bodies.
    • I believe India and the rest was too hasty for what ever reason in acknowledging 2012 coup unfortunately. And President Nasheed was too hasty in resigning for what ever the reason was and while making all the way to office which did not giving the room for the International community and the UN to intervene ? But my question is will they or do they have the capacity to intervene, even intervene now which is questionable and I doubt ! This proves that the Maldivians had to go through this scenario and keep going through it unfortunately. We need another UN!
    • Rule of Law is not a spontaneous occurring. It does not JUST happen when democracy is installed. Politician in a 3rd world country like Maldives should not be expected to have more than a 3rd world mentality. They are is opportunists who will not leaven anything unmanipulated to further their own personal objectives. The 're establishment of rule of law' the UK calls for, can only be put with force, not with democracy. Democracy is not a self healing, self correcting thing. In a Muslim society, democracy has to be forced. But how democratic is that….. ask yourself..
    • What the new generation of government-funded toadies fail to understand is. "What order do we have now? We're a so-called 100% muslim country with a porn star for a judge who lets drug barons go, and jails people who have served Maldivians."
    • Scary, isn't it? People suddenly willing to throw away their own lives to ensure a better future for all Maldivians. For those that have grown fat by skimming off the wealth of Maldives, these democratic activists will be a true boogeyman/rannamari/terrorist.
