I asked the questions of the esteemed Minister-Blogger in his comments box a few days back. I tried today again to get a response out of him by writing another comment. But this was the answer - Too many comments have been submitted from you in a short period of time. Please try again in a short while.
Maybe I have been relegated to the one-stupid-question-a-week category. I will not be surprised if I am banned altogether-
Soon after I visted Nasheed, a Subhaanahoo Watha Aala Team (SWAT) was there from the Maldives Islamic Blog Police (or Men In Buruga People as I call them). Their agent, a Mr. Sameeu promptly classified me as a Christian missionary and accused me of supporting Israel and Western Imperialism among other things. He is wrong on everything except my support for Israel.
I asked serious questions regarding Maldivian culture, history and the dissemination of information.
Has the traditional "rumaa falhi" been officially replaced by the black burugaa in the womens national costume?
Do you think that wearing the Arabic black burugaa instead of the "rumaa falhi" is an accurate depiction of Maldivian traditional costume and culture?
Mr. Nasheed is too busy blabbering about the Golhaabo nickname to answer me. He is also conveniently forgetting all the slander, libel and dehumanizing of Jews that Maldivians are practising. It is almost impossible to go through a day without hearing that the Jews are this or that or they are to blame for all the troubles of this world.
I am still hoping that the esteemed Minister-Blogger will find the time and inclination to respond to my query and not cave into the intimidation of the MIBP.
