Maldives has become a jihadi terrorist hub

New Indian Express has the story:

Societies provide oxygen for Islamists to grow in their midst. The liberal atmosphere of Britain, notably in institutions like the London School of Economics, over past decades offered sanctuaries for Islamists, considering their arguments as legitimate politics against imperialism. Saudi Arabia is bankrolling Wahhabism across the world. Pakistani society has been transformed into a 24×7 seminary for nurturing arguments favourable to jihadists and fatal to Muslim reformists. Under Saudi-Pakistani influence, now the Maldivian society is being transformed on a jihadist path.

Jihadists are armed Islamists; their methods differ but goals are the same: establishing sharia rule. In May, Maldivian national Abu Turab was among militants who carried out a suicide bombing in Syria. In tributes, jihadists noted that Turab was a loving husband and a grandfather. Another Maldivian was killed in Syria a few days later. They were not the first Maldivian suicide bombers. The first was Ali Jaleel who attacked a Pakistani intelligence office in Lahore in 2009. Last October, two Syria-bound Maldivian nationals were arrested from Malé as they were to board a plane. Currently, 20 Maldivians are fighting in Syria. The Maldives is at a turning point which favours jihadists.

Also, the latest developments connect India’s southern shore to jihadist threats emerging via Sri Lanka and the Maldives. In January 2010, Air India planes were alerted that hijacking could be attempted from airports at Colombo, Dhaka or Yangon. The recent arrest of Sri Lankan national Shakir aka Zakir Hussain in Chennai revealed that he made 20 reconnaissance trips to India to facilitate terrorists from the Maldives to attack Israeli and US consulates in Bangalore and Chennai. His arrest revealed terror cells in Malaysia, Sri Lanka, the Maldives and India operated by Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). That the threats are real became clear when bombs exploded on a train in Chennai in May. Sri Lanka has stopped its visa-on-arrival facility for Pakistanis, fearing it is becoming a transit point for terrorists.

A vital point: terror attacks in India—those in Kashmir or by the Indian Mujahideen elsewhere—have so far been connected to Pakistan, but in the near future threats will emerge from terrorists who are ideologically committed by jihad, and are not necessarily controlled by the ISI. For example, Muslim youth from Tamil Nadu working in Singapore were recruited into jihad and went to Syria. There are also reports that one Indian went to Iraq to fight as part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, now called the Islamic State. There are also Indian Muslims training as part of Al-Qaeda in Pakistan-Afghanistan. From Syria to the Maldives there’s a Pakistan connection but the Singaporean link points to the rise of ideological jihadists in India.

In February, tourists were furious when hotels in the Maldives abruptly cancelled their bookings. The cancellations were triggered by Saudi Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud who booked three entire islands. The Saudis are exerting religious influence on Maldivian society. Journalist Charles Haviland reported: Prince Salman promised to build 10 world-class mosques in the Maldives; Saudi scholars gave $100,000 for Islamic education and announced scholarships for Maldivians to study in Saudi Arabia; a five-year soft loan of $300 million was given last year. Maldivians are visiting the Middle East and Pakistan in large numbers to study, and return.In April, Pakistan’s Roznama Ummat reported that Saudis are “thinking of building a base consisting of three islands” as well as mosques and madrassas with Pakistani manpower.

@ neel,

What an erudite refutation of our news story.

@ sluma,

Your problems are NOT caused by Israel.

Your problems are caused by Islam itself.

@ handy,

What is happening in Gaza is that pitifully deluded Muslims are attacking Jews because they believe their false prophet demands it.

@ N,

I suggest that non-Muslim Indians and everyone else stay entirely away from the Maldives.

@ imran,

I’m a Christian and I do not believe that anything in Islam can save a person from the torment of hell.

@ Abaathura,

Yeah, right … blame all your problems on Israel, India, and America. Islam itself is the cause of your suffering and failures.

@ Shiyaz,

The Maldives has no connection with Israel whatsoever.

when people commit genocide and kill thousands of muslims around the world nobody says anything and its not a terrorist act but when muslims retaliate every media in the world labels it terrorism and calls muslums terrorist. i think americans and other countries should stop invading muslim countries just for oil.

Oh but the Indians who come to work and as tourists are NOT ONLY Muslims.

What about the money they earn here? Is the Indian government ready to fund all the thousands of Indian Citizens and their families who would go jobless had Maldives been a terrorist hub?

Again, I call upon you to get your facts straight. You have no idea the implications and consequences of such stupidity and irresponsibility.

Maldives and India has long since been close friends who come to each others aid whenever necessary. And it will remain that way, even if some few stupid people keep babbling about made up s***.

@Islamic trolls (all of you). We obviously struck a nerve here. Keep it up. The fact that we have managed to upset you folks is proof enough that we are on the right track.

Is there such a thing as a “peaceful Islamic state”? There has been but not recently. Ever since colonialism has gone out of fashion those peaceful places with large Muslim populations have seemed to vanish too. Seems like, for the most part, large populations of Muslims can only behave when someone non-Muslim people rule them.

Like our Christian friend who was raised in the Islamic faith said, “Allah is Satan.” Not saying that; just quoting the guy. However, based on your comments it sure sounds like Satan IS the guy you all follow.
