Maldives – hell on earth

Well, in the Maldives, if you’re a citizen then you have to be a Sunni Muslim. If you’re not a Sunni Muslim then you’ve got a problem. And in the case of Ismail Mohamed Didi this problem became a tragedy. What a hell are these islands? A sad example of religion being the cancer of knowledge, the cancer of freedom, the cancer of rationality.

There are a lot of things that are wrong with the United Nations; this is one of them:

Despite the rigidity of its religious laws, the Maldives was recently elected to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

So the next time one of you visit these islands, remember, you’re a visitor and don’t have to live there. Yup, this place goes down as a prison of the mind, a prison for the free thinking. A hell on earth.

"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but emigrated from Tanzania to the United Kingdom at the tender age of two where I now live. I work in the fields of telecoms, data networks, and cyber security. I have a keen passion in travel photography, pedalling furiously on my bicycles, and travelling off the beaten path to far flung places. “Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints” has been a guide in my travels. But I do take more than pictures, and I leave with more than footprints; memories, emotions, and friendship.
