Let me keep this as simple as this. I am a Muslim, and I believe it is very important to remind when something doesn't seem to be going so well.
Reminder is important. Well, especially when you live in a country where your president did not remember to check on the "gifts" he gets..when he was unable to find that his very vice president made the largest ever corruption in nation. And when he says he was not sure if he offered a luxury apartment to the Anti Corruption Commission head. We need to keep reminding that we are a one nation and we by our constitution needs to be dealt equally.
I spend sometime to read and find, if anywhere a "Greater Male' region" is mentioned in our constition. And in the process I found 2 important points in Chapter 2 (Fundamental Rights and Freedoms) of the constitution. Now Here is my reminder to my our presdient.
Mr President. Dear Sir, Your the elected president of this nation and the constitution does not allow any discrimination. I am not a lawyer, no a student of law. Yet the two tarif rates to the so called "greater Male' Region" and the other islands is a discrimination. Will be thankful if peoplewho happens to come accross this article tells me on what you feel. Here is what I have seen.
|A chapter from Constitution|
|The Calculation for electricity bill to the "Greater Male' region (as per Energy Authority)|
|The Calculation for electricity bill to the "Other Islands" (as per Energy Authority)|
|Again from Maldivian constitution|
I hope President Yamin remembers that every Maldivian needs to be given basic rights without discrimination regardless of which island they belong to. I hope he is sound enough to understand that one can not be punished because he was borne in a small island which Mr President seems to hate!
