Protesters calling for religious tolerance attacked with stones, threatened with death
By JJ Robinson | December 10th, 2011

Police are investigating a violent attack on a silent protest calling for religious tolerance, held at the Artificial Beach to mark Human Rights Day.

Witnesses said a group of men threw rocks at the 15-30 demonstrators, calling out threats and vowing to kill them.

One witness who took photos of the attacked said he was threatened with death if these pictures were leaked. He said we should never been seen in the streets or we will be sorry.

Among those injured in the attack was Ismail Khilath Rasheed, a controverisal blogger whose website was recently blocked by the Communications Authority of the Maldives (CAM) on the order of the Ministry of Islamic Affairs

Irony is alive and well in the Maldives.

4. I truly hope you lose your password in the next few hours.
The anti-drivel software in DU3 is inadequate to deal with you.

This will help you tell the difference between the Maldives and Qatar.

3. Such is life when one group gets too much power
Silent Solidarity will be protesting against discrimination of all races, gender, sexual preferences and religious beliefs and supporting freedom of thought and expression. In our silence, we speak volumes, the groups statement said.

Sounds like breeding ground for the complete destruction of Traditional Values. No wonder TPTB are digging in their heels.
