Disgraceful to the world..

How do we stay safe from perverts,molesters and muggers in Maldives?

A day ago while I was walking this young boy who was about 13 or maybe younger came tried to touch my friend who is a woman way older than him between the legs .Maldives the so called safe,sunny side of life is definitely not a safe country .This happened in the capital male'.Another day some boys tried to snatch her purse.
Every crime on earth thrives on this country.The police doesn't seem to know what to do about these young perverts and juvenile delinquents.Me and my friend have to be here unfortunately for a little while longer.We'd like to know how to stay safe in Maldives a country full of perverts and muggers?

Why go to the maldives to stay in the capital where you do not see the beauty of it in the first place. I go to the maldives every year and this year will be my 4th we are going for three weeks. The islands are so lovely and the staff cant d enough for you and do not do anything like that. If yo wanted to see the city where you are then you will have to withstand it.


holiday there every year

  • stay in your hotel it is not worth the trouble you might not be so lucky next time

  • The Maldives is not FULL of perverts & muggers as you suggest.

    I am horrified that you think it is. However, do not walk along the street with expensive jewellery, flashy watches, necklaces etc., that only attracts trouble. Unfortunately many Asian countries are as you described, I live in Asia and am alone, female and middle aged and manage to take care of myself. Yes you get hassle from youngsters, but give them a firm 'Go away' do not make eye contact or engage in conversation, walk away at a pace not stroll away. At night always stay in lit public places, don't go out on your own.

    Keep valuables locked in a safe within your hotel.

    Just a little common sense will keep you safe.


    Live in Asia.

  • Unfortunately Maldivians find it acceptable to allow sexual assaults on women and children. In fact here you would get more jail time for drinking Alcohol than rape.

    I do not allow my wife and children to walk alone in Male especially at night and I agree with you that some young Maldivian men will grab your womens butt and breasts. I would advise against getting angry at them because as you would know most of these kind of people carry box cutter knives and will not hesitate to use them on you.

Maumoon wants it all! Even your children's blood!

Maumoon is to be referred to as "President" even after he is out of office? I don't understand the logic behind this. Why is it so important to refer him as 'president' still?

Can you imagine the pathetic integrity of the person referred to as Maumoon Abdul Gayyoom?. He wants the indebted nation spend 3 million ruffiyaa per month on this old retard. Forget about the world economic crisis, forget about people queueing at S.T.O tents for cheaper foods, forget about people still suffering due to the tsunami.

Why does the DRP and Kaamineege family think that it is their god given right to be given titles and posts of power? They are no different from other citizens, there is a constitution that that applies to all citizens. But no, they want a separate bill to give Maumoon specific rights because he is the divine human sent by God to rule the citizens of Maldives.

Maumoon demands people respect him, Maumoon demands that he be given a higher status than anyone else, Maumoon demands that he is unique and untouchable. He demands the people of Maldives see him as their savior and demi-god. He demands all this by passing and changing the laws of the constitution to give all his desires to him. Which means all the past generations and the future generations to come is insignificant compared to this old man.

If Maumoon had any compassion or well wishes for the people of Maldives, he will not demand 3 million ruffiyaa per month in different benefits when the people of Maldives cannot even withdraw more than $300 from their debit cards. This is no surprise to me. But I find so many people thinking with the pre-programmed mind of theirs which believe Maumoon is actually someone who had done something good for his country.

Any citizen should ask yourself, are you happy with the society of Maldives now? It has progressed, but change and evolving will eventually happen in time, and people should realize that the nation could have been very different with sensible people running the country. Some Maumoon lovers blame the current MDP government for the economic crisis and everything that's been happening now. If DRP wishes to deceive the people of Maldives with such propaganda, it just says that they regard all citizens as dumb as goldfishes to believe it.

Can 30 years, or 9 months influence the growth and state of anything? Imagine a man who is 30 years old and is evil, corrupt and uncontrollable. Do you think his whole 30 years would have contributed to this state or just the last 9 months of his life? What would make more sense to you?

The best thing that could happen to all of Maldives is the death of this old parasite. There is absolutely no chance of this disease leaving our lives on its own accord. We have to cut off the cancer from the body since it has infected us too deeply.

Interview with Mr. Badhuru: The Induction Ritual

Mr. Karma
: Can you explain us the ritual?

Mr. Badhuru: I was in a place where nobody understood English, only a few could speak some words here and there. And of course I had no access to anyone who could, completely isolated from the main community. I was at the Sick Bay. And I had no reason to be there.

Before the ritual I was blind folded.

Mr. Karma: How are you summoned?

Mr. Badhuru: We are just called and made to sit on the "Red" stool. Ex-communicato or something. Which meant nobody could talk to me. I was given a blank paper with only a heading that said "Drop Guilt".

Mr. Karma: What does this paper signify? Where you blinded folded then?

Mr. Badhuru: No, this was before they blind folded me. The purpose of the paper, like the headind said was to 'drop your guilt'. In other words we jot down everything that we had done in the past that is remorseful, confess everything onto the paper. Cleanse your self of all the dark deeds buried in the past.

Mr. Karma: Okay, please go on.

Mr. Badhuru: Then after that I was blind folded and four people came and told me to 'trust them'. I had to follow their guidance and navigate myself blindfolded to where they were taking me. I followed their directions, down some steps, climbing, turning with only their voices as an indication.

I was eventually told to stop and made me enter a room which was dead quiet. I was told to sit. The moment I sat on a chair they provided, a voice in front of me loudly shouted "What the fuck are you doing here?". There were a few people in the room, this much I knew. Blind folded I had to answer questions coming from left right and center.

Mr. Karma: What questions were you asked?

Mr. Badhuru: Many questions regarding my past. At one point I was asked whether I want to go in life like the way I was, blind. When I said no and that I don't want to be blind, they took my my blind folds off. In the center was a senior person while on both sides there were two on each of his sides sitting. It was a small room, and I was seated in front of these five strangers. They kept asking many questions, they were referring to the 'Drop Guilt' paper I had given earlier. They drilled me and made me tell every dark thing about my life.

Mr. Karma: Okay. Go on.

Mr. Badhuru: Then I was again blindfolded and taken out the same way, I had to again follow the voices to make my way to where they took me. I understood that this was to build blind trust, part of the ritual.

I was taken to somewhere it was dead quiet, strangely in was in the open. Then suddenly another voice started speaking very loudly. The voice said "You have been living your life like a blind person, not seeing how destructive your actions have been."

"You are here because your life has reached a dead end and you are nothing".

He told me that my blindfold will be removed but not to open my eyes yet. I was told to extend my hand. The voice was saying "Extent your hand palm upwards". My blind fold was removed and put into my extended hand. I was told that all the guilt I had been carrying is in my hand now, the voice told me to imagine all the bad deeds and pain, and told me to channel all those thoughts into the blindfolds now squashed in my hand.

Mr Karma: How did you feel then?

Mr. Badhuru: The the voice asked me "Do you want to let go of all that pain?". I said "Yes". Because I really could imagine all the pain and regret are the squashed piece of cloth in my hand. He told me to throw the blindfold in my hand to the count of three, i was told to throw all the darkness as hard I can. I had not opened my eyes yet during all this. Then suddenly when I thought I was alone with only this voice, there came a roar of people counting "3, 2, 1, Throw it!!".

I threw what was in my hand imagining it was all the pain I have been through and all the pain I have caused. And opened my eyes.

To my surprise there were about 100 people forming a ring around me and smiling warmly. Then I saw the senior person who had been giving me all these instructions also there. Now in front of me there was a table with a candle lit. The ominous feel had gone.

I was asked "What do you see when you look at the candle?". I knew this was another symbolic question. So I looked at the burning candle. And I could only see one thing, the candle was like my life, slowly burning out and I knew I had to stop that.

I said "This candle is like my life". Then the questioner asked me, "Do you want to let your life burn away like that, slowly fading to nothing?". I said "No". He said "Then blow it out". So simply I just blew the candle out and the whole crowd making a ring around the ritual erupted with shouting and applauding. The ritual was done.

Mr. Karma: Did you feel any difference?

Mr. Badhuru: I actually felt replenished, reborn and definitely lighter because I got the opportunity to throw away my guilt that's been buried very deep in the past. During the whole ritual I felt alone, scared, angry at times been addressed like an outcast but once I took the blindfold away and see the ring of people waiting for me to finish the ritual, to welcome me into their family as a new person, with new meaning, it felt really good.

Mr. Karma: Then what happened?

Mr. Badhuru: They all sang the song "You ain't heavy, you're my brother" and one person took me to every single person around me and introduced me. Each one hugged me and said "Welcome to the family".

How to fight Islamic Extremism?

The Burqa Syndrome

Wearing the Burqa has been banned in some colleges in Mangalore, Karnataka, India. The colleges banned wearing for reasons of their own and had been met with students protesting. It was reported in Times of India newspaper on 21st of August.

Below the article there is another headline that said "Burqa not part of Islam".

According to the article a renowned Islamic scholar - Maulana Wahiduddin Khan said

"Burqa is not part of Islam. It is a part of culture, the culture that the people of the subcontinent have been for following for ages. Nobody can enforce a dress code in the name of Islam. It is categorically un-islamic."

The author of Discovering Islam From Its Original Sources said

"Man or women, anyone can wear anything they feel is decent. What matters is your truthfulness and honesty in character".

A Nation of Insecure Men

Among the reasons stated in Islamic scripts regarding the wear of burqa and covering a woman's decency, how much does it really got to with being beneficial to the woman her self? To cover a woman's decency yes, but its mostly to do with the insecurity of men and their belief that the Islam man has a very dirty mind.

The women are also sent on a guilt trip by convincing them that the husbands with suffer hell if their wives did not wear a burqa. Or they are given a lot of fear talk implying that there will be fewer women in heaven, and those are the one's who do not wear a burqa or not be a submissive wife.

God is really in the image of a male chauvinist pig. Could women be something more than objects sent to men to bear their children? To suffer at the whim of idiots due to their short-comings and fear of losing their wives to someone else?

A Failed Concept

The Burqa is already a failure. Wearing the Burqa does not stop men from staring at a women and inhibiting dirty thoughts. The Burqa has become a fashion accessory - girls wear Burqa with tight tops and tight jeans, showing how ineffective the real purpose of wearing it has become.

The Burqa is mostly worn because of peer pressure rather than due to a persons religious belief. I've seen islands with 100% burqa, even small little kids wear them while playing out in the sun and sand. How would one or few women feel when everyone wears burqa and you are the odd one out by not wearing it?, they have no choice but fall under the pressure.

Burqa has become notorious in the hands of thieves and terrorists. They use it to shoplift or carry out terrorist activities while been able to hide their identity. How convenient for "jihad".

Cut Off The Supply

Islam extremism is on the verge of taking over all Maldivians way of life. The demand for it is getting high, and the only way to fight the demand for religious extremism would be to cut off the supply. About 10 - 15 years ago in Maldives people were not looking for extreme religiousness as way of escaping the realities of life, because there was no supply then. Once a few people got an opportunity through scholarships to go to Pakistan or middle east to study, most of them came back indoctrinated with extremism and started supplying it to the public. Now today we see how high the demand for it has risen.

Maldives not only faces a drug epidemic, it also faces extremism which is equally destructive. A parallel story had been developing all along with the spread of drugs, almost having the same principles. Drugs started to spread when the supply of it started to get flooded in Maldives, same as Islamic extremism. Both of these demons target the youth and destroys their lives by making them addicted to it. Both of these things oppresses & controls the person and rigidly tunes them to the way of life suited only to them. And in the process it makes them hurt other people in the name of their beliefs.

A way of life. There is always a choice.

Intellectual Masturbation

What will happen if you give some monkeys a bucket of paint and brushes, and ask them to paint a magnificent work of art?

Nonetheless that no one thought to ask whether these monkeys can actually paint. It's just a common way for people to let the world know they are stupid.

It's like giving a flute to a fish and telling them to blow it. It's like expecting a dog to moo. It's like telling an extremist that his trouser is too short and his beard too long.

It's also same as giving a lot of money to a backward self-dubbed intellect to buy certificates, and told to blog as a form of propaganda which that person defines as "activist" work. Many questions would arise. How did such a person's parents get enslaved by a dwarf posing as a giant? Debt and lunacy perhaps? In turn they have indoctrinated a daughter who has to shave her mustache every other day.

I have seen. 'Keyboard gangsters' and those who are experts in 'intellectual masturbation'. It helps fight moments filled with utter boredom.

Disintegration of the Ego

Reality as we know it is a fabricated bunch of laws that try to ground the human being, to make man be controlled, to contain them in an environment that suits some religion, belief or a government.

Some where back in time the human unconscious felt the urge to pursue materialism. With the dissent of spirituality and mysticism, man's ego sprang up like flower, blooming into the spirit of man and corrupting it to the core. Now only one dimension existed, that is the one in which we have to pay our bills, work our asses off and live like a responsible human tuned to a strict routine. Ego has not only flawed us within, it has created many defects that alter our personalities to hate, to succumb, to be enslaved, to be blind, and it has sourly made us lose a bit of love, a bit of understanding and a bit of acceptance.

The disintegration of the ego is something different. It's knowing that we are all part of a connected organism that has been evolving for eternity. A single life is worth just an atomic fragment of the grand scheme of things; in the infinite cosmic dance we are just an insignificant peck.

Man's ego will disintegrate when you walk out the door, as Huxley said, you will not be quite the same person when you return through it. Through the door, or down the rabbit hole - the journey is in the hands of the traveler. A great lord of dance might speak to you while in his trance, as in that state normal humans cannot reach him. or it could be your worst nightmare. And it's you choice to accept and get wise from the experience.

It's an obligation to your soul, now forget materialistic goals. Dissolve your ego and witness the cosmic ego, the hidden layers of light and dimensions that shows you the connection of everything into one, a great unification of all spirits.

The Dawn of Youthday

Sunrise in Male'
Originally uploaded by visualunion

Youth-day begins.

The youth of Maldives are rotting away to drugs or gang violence. Otherwise a majority of minors are sexually abused either mostly by a close family member or relative. The education levels are going down rather than up. Many of our youth are still idle 85% of their time. "Idleness is the Devil's workshop" they say.

Many of our youth are lured by the religious extremists to join their cults. Brainwashing them and inaugurating them into their close society where 'jaariya's and goat herding exist. Both of which are sex slaves to the bearded-man.

Youth day dawns. And I pray that our future generations will have a happier childhood and a stimulated youth, which will make them fulfilled, honorable people of their life time.

And be free as the human spirit can be.

The lifeline of a generation

Would it surprise the children, that there never was a tooth fairy? But why should he ask he thought. He had no right to rob the children of their happiness. Besides, Santa is just a magic mushroom. But he will, because that's what he never had.

The big bearded bear-like-man sat behind the microphone. He also sat behind a golden throne, in his head of course. "What is my duty?". He never wonders who he is asking this. Is it his academically gained logic, or his faith? So where does he get his wisdom from?

The answer to this question is very simple. He gets his wisdom from his short comings as growing up human. So he says "My duty is to enslave you".

Here we have some one who had possibly been an outcast as a child. The weird one who always kept frowning. The one who had a strict father who occasionally beat him up. This is someone who really needed love. He carries that void within himself still with longing, yet now his warped view of the world makes him this stupid retard.

What wisdom? The microphone lets his camel breath enter into its diaphragm, that turns the acoustic vibrations into an electrical signal with the help of a magnetic coil. These electrical signal then traveled through wires, into the sound mixer, then into the amplifiers and out to the speaker system. Then it travels out in it's original form of a sound wave to infect other peoples thoughts. It's not only lies, it started with a camel breath.

After his wisdom he sleeps like a bear. And he will not hibernate, as it will violate his principle of terrorizing and moral policing of the free people. After all he is not alone in his crusade to enslave the human spirit. To end the lifeline of a generation. To end freedom.

The Demon, the Butterfly and the Well

Addicted to power. There is a path that is often chosen, along with the desire for materialistic perfection. The soul in return is left to perish of hunger, left to endure a painful longing for a release. The soul will slowly deteriorate without spiritual induction. But do not confuse spirituality with religiousness. One simple way to see it is that "religious" is being devoted to scripture and blinding yourself to all else, and "spiritual" is too vast a word it could most simply be described as just being "good".

That's just one point of view. While the "religious" will say that view is just wrong simply because its not their view. And the "spiritual" will say "Yes - everyone is entitled to their opinion, there is no good or bad, just weak and strong".

I'm not saying that spirituality and being religious are two ends of a pole, to the contrary both support each other and let each other grow, it's symbiotic. However the outcome of these two concepts can be very different.

And now comes a stronger force that tends to overwhelm both the spiritual and the religious; the demon known as materialism. It's in the modern collective unconscious to seek the comforts of the world, the unsaid path to the ultimate, or pre-laid destiny. Or so one is thought to believe from birth. What waste of the soul, what a waste. Our Higher Power, our One will shed tears of sadness. It's like giving a hungry child a banana, and suddenly seeing him peel and throw the fruit and eat the outside instead.

One thing all people of all races, all nations and all time would agree: When you die and your soul leaves the living, you do not take any of your materialistic possessions. In fact you leave this world cold and naked, rotting and decaying into the earth. The only thing that matters would be how your life impacted those around you, because you will only live in their memories after death.

Rootlevel influences

The space cadet never realized how infected he was. The old culture, the old sayings, the old beliefs, the unwritten rules,..

The collective conscious of the toy town and the warped sense of right and wrong. The sword of justice is wielded by the hands of destruction. Now where once it was safe, it is not.

The space cadet realized how infected he was. It's like a rope tied to his feet and anchored in this god forsaken land. A heavy rusted anchor. He thinks, he assumes. What he believes is what is, yet it is not the truth. He thinks about how others would think of him and loses an important element. The infection is so deep it controls his thoughts and sense of right and wrong, high and low, black and white.

We wear a million masks everyday. Yet fail to see the real face of who society was given a chance to corrupt.
