Majeediya School Logo Circumcised


Originally there was a squiggly calligraphic brush stroke across the middle of the letter M in the crest. That was part of the Gothic-style font face. The crest had been in use since 1972. In the early 1980s it was suddenly determined that the letter M in the crest was a Western conspiracy and that the offending brush stroke was in fact a concealed crucifix. Orders were promptly issued to remove the brush stroke immediately.

One has to wonder what the fate would be of the letter X and the Thaana (Maldive script) letter Raa , when they are discovered lurking inside the closet.

    that is just one of the stupid arabic things Gayoom, Zahir Husein and Fathulla introduced into Maldives. I find it hard believe that educated (?) maldivians went along with these things. I mean people who studied in western universities.But then again these things happened.
