"The Maldive republican authorities impose names on children of Maldive nationals. Parents have to apply to a government committee to have the proposed names for their children approved. This system was introduced in the 1990s ...."
Allah is pleased if you describe your child as a slave of Allah ( as in Abdul Majeed Abdul Baaree..Abdullah Yaameen Abdul Gayoom..Khadeejaa Abdul Kareem). You will get sawaab points towards your 72 fathafolhi for giving your child an arabic name.
Approval of Divehi (Maldive language) names is left to the vagaries of the discretion of the "Name Nazis". In a system where rules are made by mullahs trained at the el-Azher Islamic seminary in Egypt, the Jamia Salafiyyah Islamiyya in Pakistan and others such as the Nadwatul Ulema Deobandi in India, this all makes sense. The mullahs are bent on obliterating the ancestral heritage of Maldivians and replacing it with that of their Arab colonialist masters.
Where ever Islam goes there is a cultural jihad of replacing the indigenous culture with the arab culture of 7th century Arabia..now they are clamping down on the Berbers for trying to revive their own culture...
"Human rights associations and Berber organisations in Morocco have condemned as a racist act the decision by the Rabat government to ban Berber names. The head of the administrative service of the Ministry for the Interior, Idriss Bajdi, confirmed that in January all registry offices apart from embassies and consulates received a list of banned Berber names because they violate law 99-37. In 13 cases the State offices refused to register newborns given a Berber name (such as Tilil, Sifoa, and Llelli), which invoked the anger of the people and human rights associations. 'Certain names have been banned because they go against the Moroccan identity'', said Bajdi, adding that 'the decision was also taken to put an end to the spread of meaningless names''. Law 99-37 states that an Arabic-Moroccan name must be chosen for newborns, it must not be a surname or composed of more than two names, it must not be the name of a city, village or tribé.
