Today we commemorate the martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the independence of this nation and those whose lives were taken in the aftermath that followed. Our nation will remember them on this day every year which is marked as a public holiday (when we can rest) in memory of the harship and the martyrdom of those who toiled and gave up their lives for this nation. The top honors goes to Shaheed Hussain Adam who will be remebered for his bravery and selflessness. May we learn to respect with dignity – Martyr Hussain Adam and those who gave up their lives and whose lives were taken on that November 3rd day twenty years ago.
Long Live the Maldives!
