Islamists Chuck Bricks at Demonstrators Holding Silent Protest for Tolerance
Islamists chucked bricks at demostrators holding a silent protest calling for religious tolerance in The Maldives.
Minivan News reported:
Police are investigating a violent attack on a âsilent protestâ 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 âthreatened with death if these pictures were leaked. He said we should never been seen in the streets or we will be sorry.â
Among those injured in the attack was Ismail âKhilathâ 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.
Rasheed suffered a head injury and was rushed to Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital (IGMH).
âThey started hitting us with bricks. They were aiming at our heads â we could tell they were serious and wanted to kill us,â Rasheed told Minivan News from hospital. âI was taken on a motorcycle to IGMH, but I could see them behind me still hitting my friends.â
Police Sub-Inspector Ahmed Shiyam said police attended the scene after the attackers had departed, and were currently investigating the cause of the violence. No arrests had yet been made, he added.
The protesters, calling themselves âSilent Solidarityâ, had earlier issued a press release stating that their intention was to âmake the Maldives and the international community aware of the rising religious intolerance in the Maldives, and to condemn the Constitutionally endorsed suppression of religious freedom. We also denounce the increasing use being made of Islam as a tool of political power.â
