Fear and Submission in the Maldives Democratic Party?

It comes as no surprise that the head of the Islamic council of MDP "B. A" Naseem has asked Anni to reconsider choosing a woman as his running mate.

Sura (2:228) - "and the men are a degree above them [women]"

Bukhari (6:301) - "[Muhammad] said, 'Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?' They replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her intelligence.'"

Bukhari (6:301) - continued - "[Muhammad said] 'Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?' The women replied in the affirmative. He said, 'This is the deficiency in her religion.'" Allah has made women deficient in the practice of their religion as well, by giving them menstrual cycles.

This mullah has previously opposed the law making 18 years the minimum age for marriage.

The Democratic party candidate appears to be caving into the demands of the mullahs - the fear of offending Allah by elevating a woman to a position equal to a man now has taken hold of most Maldivians.

From Minivan News : Anni, who as has the final decision as presidential candidate, has said he did not want to do anything against Islam and would again meet again with BA Naseem.

It is unclear whether or not Anni will now change his nomination in line with these views, but he appeared open to changing his decision, saying “the party has a number of very capable options.”

    This is clear proof that the Maldivian Democratic Party (or for that matter any of the other political groupings) has absolutely no regard for the rule of law. Only days have passed since the ratification of the new (albeit highly deficient) constitution and now political leaders are caving in to the demands of mullahs who follow the dictates of a pathetic, 7th century, Arab paedophile called Mohamed. The constitution expressly permits women to hold the positions of president and vice president. So what authority does Anni have to give in to the veto of a paedophile-loving mullah against the candidacy of a woman? Think about it my fellow Maldivians! This constitution is a farce from the outset. As far as these Muslims are concerned, there is only one law in the Maldives and that is “La ilaaha illa-Allah; Muhammad-paedophilan rasool-Allah.

    well look what we have here..Random Reverend Coconut himself; AMDC-isphagula's very own representative on the maldivian bogosphere

    Hardly surprising that MDP is now officially a target as well- esp given that daddy has bought Republican Party (Not withstanding the fact that HE is one of the epitome of orthodox islam in the country).

    I wait for the day when this bisexual bipolar broad has the cunt to put up a picture of her own daddy- our very own gabu garoonu gasim, "drilling" his 4 wives, esp his latest 18yr old brand new beuatiful wife!!
