Did you watch the Majlis today? Every time I see the vice president chairing the parliament I see a lady. Am I right? Or is there anything wrong in my eyes? Have a look and tell me. Here is the present vice president of the Maldivian Parliament.
As far as I know she is a lady. And she is the vice president of the Parliament. And when in absence of the Parliament president, she chairs the Parliament as the vice president and not the president.
However, I always see the IZZAHTHERI MEMBERS of majlis keeps on addressing her as "izzahtheri Raees". Are they insane???
She is a lady.
If they assume that she'd be acitng as president, then it must be Raeesaa not Raees
If they assume her as the vice president it should be Naaibaa Raees. (Naaibu Raeesa is wrong dhivehi as it'd change the president to a lady)
You know I felt like not to say this. But to tell you the truth I really don't know if these members are crazy to go on addressing a lady as a gentleman when she is right in front of them. If these Izzahtheri members are unable to differentiate between a lady and a gent, can they represent us and our rights? I doubt.

Aneesa Ahmed....a lady or a gentle man???
I am Rafiu Jameel from Addu City, Maldives. I use Alif Laam Gaaf as my pen name which stands for 'pen that loves fairness' ( Insaafah Loabikuraa Galan) Tell you the truth, I am not a so called IT person. However, if I never use internet , I'd stay a stranger of this wide network of information, which I am sure does not sound very good for a teacher in the 21st century. I am not someone who is so good in English either. Yet I am not someone who wish to make it a barrier for me to express what I think and what I believe. Thank you for visiting my blog. I welcome any comments or criticism that fits to the limits of Islam and constitution of Maldives. Indeed, I'd love to get your comments. :) Please, kindly refrain from using any foul words. Hope you'd enjoy my blog posts.
