Paki Muslim Dress Code

Since the conversion to Islam, there has been an incessant effort to eradicate everything to do with Maldivian past and culture. There is a reluctance, and even downright opposition to the study of early history. Islam seems to demand that - what they see as - the contemptible past before Islamic faith is forgotten. All artefacts preceding Islamic time have been systematically destroyed up to the present.
Now a large number of Maldivians have discarded Maldivian and western attire and moved on to the Pakistani Muslim dress code. And their numbers are growing everyday. Everywhere you can see people who dress like Kashmiri jihadis and Afghan Taliban.
No men except the mullahs on Friday are wearing the Arab dress but the move to Pakistani Muslim dress is maybe a way of getting closer to Arabia. Many women are already bundled up like Saudis. Soon we will have Maldivian men in full Arab regalia?
The quote below from one of the best books written about Maldives is worth reading and contemplating.

"Is the fate of gradually becoming an Arab nation the Maldive Islanders' only option? This is the Maldivian dilemma since they made the decision to accept the Arabs as their undisputed cultural masters and began to sever their links with their own past. Nowadays Maldivians are culturally restless people who can never be at ease. The intense indoctrination of the 1980s and 90s, when Islamization was imposed on the islands at a much higher gear than at any time in the nation's history, has made Maldivians feel uncozy in their own country. The changes brought about have been of such magnitude and in such a short time, that there is now a whole young generation of Divehi people who, having not known how things were previously, take for granted that their home nation has always been so orthodox and impersonal."

  1. what's wrong with u ppl???

    why does it hurt u christians n jews n other ppl when muslim women cover their bodies?

    when muslims do as they are told in their religion, these ppl are so jealous. cos their ppl are naked when they go out on roads. they have no dignity. no integrity. so they want to make muslims also naked....

    Ismail rasheed n gang... how ever u try, u know its a fact. More and more maldivians are covering their bodies with long clothes n wearing veils.... u can't stop that....

    These people are afflicted by colonialism. They are going to defacate on their proud heritage and adopt the culture of the colonial masters. Maldives was already civilised when Mohamed rode his first camel. Our Buddhist civilisation was advanced when Islam was enforced. From then on everything went downhill. We are still in that pit of the Dark Ages and it is becoming worse.

    Most of what the authors of this blog write are assertions and allegations without any evidence. This article ('http://arabiguitar.blogspot.com/2006/09/kill-and-be-killed.html') about a relatively recent crisis shows how naive and inaccurate their writings are. The article contains the sort of information the Western media often spreads. You know the sort of distorted news like recent capture of an Israeli soldier by Palestinians, which the Western media (and of course Bush & Blair (the liars)) told was the root cause of the recent crisis, while in fact it was the kidnapping of two Gaza citizens which prompted this capture.

    Gaza has citizens? The Palestinian beasts in Gaza are occupiers of Israeli land. They should get out of there. The Independent and civilized Israel state.

    anonymous: your servility to arabs is astounding. i'm ashamed that you might be a maldivian. maldives is a Buddhist state occupied by Arab slaves such as yourself. You can form your Dhivehistan some place else. get off our land to practice your violence and sexual perversions else where. Maldives belongs to buddhists and buddhism is peaceful and tolerant.

    Use your buddhi if you have any left. Probably all that was lost reciting that sexual and violent arabic incantations over and over.

    Hehe, if we go and practice our religion somewhere else you will be all alone in maldives playing buddhism, look around you and you will see that islam is not dead here inshallah it will become even better than that. Women wearing veil is an example of it and there are lot of people who encourage it now.

    Sorry buddhism is out and islam is here to stay.

    If the people of Palestine are beasts, you and the Zionists are worse beasts because the are occupying Arab lands in violation of International Law. They cannot be civilized if they do not respect International Law.

    You are a beast because you are endorsing their criminal violation of International Law.

    When people realize what Islam is about, then they will turn away from that vile cult of oppression.
