There are Dhivehi people of different faiths and religions. For Maldivians of the Christian faith and Christians around the world the Pentecost is a special day. In 2008, Pentecost will be celebrated on May 11 in Western Christian countries and on June 15 in Eastern Christian countries.
On this occasion, The Dhivehistan Report urges and encourages all Maldivians to open their hearts and embrace their fellow Maldivians of the Christian faith. Stand up and say that they do not have to practice their religion in secret and live in fear because of their religious beliefs.
Stand up for your fellow Maldivians and their human rights.
"Christians believe Pentecost to be a powerful feast of salvation, because it speaks about the giving of the Law on Mount Sinai, about the founding of the Church, and about the Final Judgement. Pentecost is a parallel to Shavout, as Easter is to Passover. According to the Bible, on Passover, the Jews were delivered from slavery in Egypt; on Easter, mankind was delivered from slavery to sin; on Shavout, the Children of Israel received the "Law"; on Pentecost, the Church received the fullness of the Holy Spirit." - From Wikipedia
