I was shocked to see the interview of President on CNN, where he very openly declared that Maldivians are fighting with the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan. That too according to him are in hundreds, at least few hundreds if not thousands.
This will certainly change how the world looks at our country. I do believe that every action possible should be taken to stop this yet, I do not believe, president should advertise it. Excuse me, if you say democracy, well, then shall we see him announce tomorrow that we are next to Mexico in drugs? Best in Asia in gang fights? It is true that there are few who Maldivians who fight and are involved with Taliban. Yet they are very few. Whether we like it or not, there are people in this country who do not believe in Islam. Will we tomorrow announce our nation as a multi-religious country.
It is better to take solid actions rather than talk and talk. How about a temporary halt to higher education chances in Pakistan if it is so out of control as president described? Moreover, yesterday in the news conference only president was talking about authentic questions. If then why don't president come up with an authentic source of his figures.
Come on. President. Mind your language. If not just shut up.

Mr President. Mind your Language, if not Shut up
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.
