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:

"A traveller with a camera!" I was born in Tanzania but have lived here in the United Kingdom since the age of two. I've always liked science and engineering so, after graduating, I took up a career in telecommunications and datacoms, with an emphasis in systems engineering and assurance. I have various interests in programming, photography, and pedalling furiously on my mountain bike! I also enjoy travelling off the beaten path, seeing the natural world, and meeting different peoples in their varied cultures.
