Today is a historic day for Maldives. A friend just told me that fighting has broken out between rival factions in the Special Majlis or the Upper House of Parliament. Haveeru also reported that the meeting was adjourned as it was not possible to proceed with the meeting.
This is the Parliament that was hurt and upset over remarks made by the then Foreign Minister Dr. Shaheed about them. They believe they are divine and are not capable of any wrongdoing.
It is a day of celebration. We have matured and bloomed into a full democracy. Long Live the Divine People’s Majlis of the Republic of Maldives.

We are not only tribal; we are driven by our animal instincts beyond civilized human behaviors. And our society somehow applauds it. We are in on country that we can be proud of.
