This comment attached herewith underlines the kind of prejudice that we face throughout the world. In order to survive and exist “this new crusade”, I believe, it is upon us to do our maximum to let people know what we are, and to make quick steps to train the minds of our young toward peaceful coexistence. And to solve our differences amicably instead of resorting to violence and terror tactics.
The fact of the matter is that this kind of prejudice, whether right or wrong, is causing us great harm. In the west they have the advantage of being in a position to bully and ridicule other people’s and their faith in whatever way they wish.
Islam does not propagate terrorism. Maldivians have a tradition of welcoming foreign visitors with humble hospitality to our shores. We have to build on both.
