ISIS taking sex slaves and raping them is an act sunnah taught by Muhammed himself. These people are merely just following the teachings of Islam, from Hadith, Sunnah and Quran. It's the hallmark of a ”good” jihadi!

Here is a well known hadith that deals directly with the topic of female slaves used for sexual purposes according to Sahih Bukhari.
The hadith is quite cold hearted as it doesn't address the emotional state of these captive women, shows no mercy for their feelings right after their men-folk captured or killed and then taken off to a foreign land in which they were inevitably traumatized, scared, and raped!

Islamic religion and Muslims who adhere to closely to the theology is full of hypocrisy. They like picking on other people's choice of clothing by fail to see that Muhammed himself cross-dressed, wearing Aisha’s clothing often.

Ministry of Islamic Affairs should be abolished! It's unnecessary to to waste taxpayer money to service a religion at the highest level of the state.
In it's place we should have a Ministry of Secular Affairs. It's task would be ensure religion or any of it's iterations doesn't encroach on to the state, and it remains in the private domain.
And the activities that was run by the Islamic ministry can all come under a private Institute such as a ”Islamic Council of Maldives” (or whatever) and will be equally subjected to the laws of the land.

I would like to do an experiment as see how it plays out.

I will pay anyone who translates these reports into Dhivehi language a mutually agreed some of money per word rate for the finished documents.

Reach out to me if anyone is interested.
I want to make an ”audiobook” file the dhivehi language translations once finished.

Should be interesting repurposing these reports as useful political activism material.

I understand that you are feeling a lot of pressure right now as a Muslim who wants to advocate for change and then having to fend off accusations of you being an atheist as well, in an environment where atheists are increasingly vocal.
And I am genuinely sympathetic to you for the position you find yourself in.

I would like to ask you, why you think we are acting like a religion? What makes you call us a cult?
What consistency are we lacking when you say ”Dhivehi atheists need consistency”?

Being Dhivehi is who we are. Being an atheist is the lack of belief in a religions. And is the same for everyone regardless of where someone is from.

There will be others. History has proven that Islam’s believers will continue to push for the realization of the prophetic narrative of a global caliphate. The solution is addressing the problems within Islamic doctrine through social engineering efforts. I
Islam’s set of beliefs easily collapses when subjected to rigorous scrutiny. Islam is no match for science, logic and reason in a confrontational dialogue at a safe distance.
This approach forces believers of Islamic ideology to reflect introspectively on their beliefs. Most people are victims of the ideology by being born into it and indoctrinated into it.

The Islamic "Scholars" in #Maldives and their cronies are trying to twist religious fervor and nationalism together so they can weave a narrative where they are under some sort of attack from enemies in their midst.
They are whipping up the masses into a frenzy.
When really all that is happening, and this is quite apparent for anyone who bothers to look,
Is that a marginalized and threatened population are asking for their right to live in the sun without fear of persecution and bodily harm.
The reactionary characters, falling out of the woodwork are trying to bury activists in a mountain of thinly veiled, sometimes open threats and propaganda in an effort to stem the tide of opposition.

Religion can reduce humans into uncivilized hunter-gatherers as you can see here. Hindu's, Muslims, Buddhists and all those other stupid religions out there is a manifestation of human ignorance! Leave your religion behind and grow up! #NormalizingDissent #atheist
Take a look at this video from Mel Gibson's Apocalypto from 2006. The movie depicts medieval Mayan civilization around 1500s.

Religion’s like Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, Christianity and all it's manifestations - ISIS, Hindutva groups, bodu bala sena to name a few - are all born from ignorance, existing on a spectrum of civilizing process.

@hamavaahaka @dhiyanasaid Oh it’s very obvious at this point, it is about power and about their belief in a prophetic narrative of how the end of days would come, and that narrative ends with Muslims in triumph after defeating the kuffar and establishing the caliphate.
@hamavaahaka @dhiyanasaid This is why we need to address the problems of Islam that teaches this nonsense and keeps proliferating. And that’s why we need to face Islam head on delegitimize it’s claims through scientific facts and removing reverence of it from the people.
@hamavaahaka @dhiyanasaid Once this seemingly impossible task is done, we can then discard islam into the trash of history for the garbage that it is. The collapse of Islam would the single most important event bigger than the future collapse of the Chinese communist party.

This is an important day in Maldives history. This will be the first of many such discussions about minorities in the Maldives. We hav a long way to go. We need to continue to keep pushing for many such discussions before change happens. #SecularMaldives…
This conversation should be made as frequently as it is realistically possible. There are so many hot button topics that is getting touched here. Everyone of these people calling each other laadheenee forces everyone to look at us introspectively.
I think this forced introspection by the people as we watch these proceedings over and over is what will eventually win us our rights as citizens. This is the social engineering that we need to enable by engaging on social media.

The emancipation of non-Muslim Maldivians will not be handed over on a platter. We will have to work hard for it, and in that process, people will get hurt and some will lose their lives. It's not acceptable that some of us will pay the ultimate price for that freedom.
But the Islamist deepstate in the Maldives treats our rights and freedoms as something they own, and attempting to leave will continue to be framed as an attack on Islam and Muslims. This is done intentionally to rile up the masses against the minority groups.
And as long as they keep doing it, this will be the hardest fight we would have to endure in our lives. But it is a fight we must take on! We have to take it on for the sake of our families and children’s today and the future.

So Islam is allowed to call people who doesn't believe it as dogs, asses, pigs and everything else in between? Muslim’s continue to delegitimize our entire humanity when you say we deserve eternal damnation in a fire! At this point you don't care about our human rights! (1)
People are being hounded, threatened, molested, killed for holding different opinions, little girls married off and raped, and we shouldn't say anything to express our disgust at the ideology of Islam that condemns us? Why are you privileged and protected? (2)
We have no fundamental rights in this country. The law of the country as it exists now, and the Islamic theology that empowers our cruel treatment will be criticized, harshly if necessary, given we have no recourse to the abuse we are subjected to. (3)

As I read the article, it reminded me of fan groups in popular culture (eg: Harry Potter, Star Wars, etc) discussing and disputing their respective canons. I find this no different.

#ExMuslim #NormalizingDissent #AwesomeWithoutAllah #SecularMaldives
After reading the article and comments to it, I have to say, I do appreciate @maumoonagayoom trying to re-frame Aisha’s age to avoid the embarrassing pedophile accusations from critics of Muhammad and Islam.
And more importantly, I would remain supportive of any work that could retrofit Islam to modern values. It may not be Islam as Muhammad practiced it, and became a better Islam, maybe there would be less girls being raped by pedophile lunatics following pedophile sunnah.

Congratulations President @ibusolih on the announcements of how to deal with Jihadists in Syria and elsewhere returning to Maldives, designating 17 groups as terrorist organizations and much more.

#NormalizingDissent #FikuryInqilab #SecularMaldives
Terrorist groups designated and US$220m lost to corruption: Detailed summary of President @ibusolih’s press conference today.…
@ibusolih My position around on jihadists wanting to return home from Syria and elsewhere remain unchanged since the beginning of the year. It's an opportunity for #SecularMaldives efforts to advance leaps & bounds. Heres how!

You remember the level of public outrage when Valezinee claimed to be a prophet? Did u also notice that what she did doesnt seem to be so bad compared to the level of criticism and laadheenee out there now?

#ExMuslim #Atheist #NormalizingDissent #FikuryInqilab #SecularMaldives
And do you also know that this has the capacity to be pushed much further than it is now? And in the process of #NormalizingDissent we would lift the liberal baseline upwards as people desensitize and sets the new normal.
Through social media engagements with discussion, dialogue, offensive triggers, memes, videos, photos, science, reason, logic and much more, we will approach societal change with a #SocialEngineering mindset.

This guy is such an ass. In his attempt to harass me, he keeps tagging my father to torment him. My father is a devout elderly Muslim man, who I understand is broken in devastation because of his belief that he failed in bringing up ”good Muslim children”.
This self styled Islam defender feels that it is acceptable to harass his fellow religionists as long as it's helpful for his nefarious agenda of harassing marginalized minorities in the Maldives.
He is a classic example of how toxic Islam is how corrosive it is on the human mind, stripping him of his ability to have empathy and making him void of the qualities that make humanity such a joy.

I don't know if I should feel honored or terrified as to where this is going. Let's keep pushing forward and see how far this goes!

#ExMuslim #Atheist #NormalizingDissent #AwesomeWithoutAllah #SocialEngineering #FikuryInqilab #SecularMaldives
But just for the record @NoToSecularism_, I have better tools and access to knowledge and a know how to use them, unlike all those enemies of those prophets from that time, so I actually contribute towards a bigger threat to Islam it's ever seen in it's entire history.
Are you comfortable with that?

#SecularMaldives advocates should continue to highlight the barbarity of Islamic sharia through visual means like videos and photos to get the point across with more impact to influence society to move away from Islamic sharia. That would be helpful. #NormalizingDissent
People need to understand that there are consequences to them taking an Islamic sharia position. They need help in establishing that understanding through vivid and horrifying visual means. The people of Maldives won't be able to handle it. #ExMuslim #Atheist #ExMuslimBecause

Saw this photo of @dr_iyaz with Shaheem in Saudi shaking hands, showing camaraderie I guess 🤔
Looking at the photo, you immediately notice how swollen his feet are. I am no doctor or expert, but I don't think it will be comfortable for him to walk, given the condition his feet is.
Especially given the amount of weight that they are supposed to carry. Just look at the size of this man. It's unbelievable. A friend of mine jokingly said he looks like ”he eats enough food to end hunger in a poor African village”.

Every now and then I have shared analytics from my Twitter account so that people who follow the account have a sense of the audience that v are interacting with. The Maldives has a population of just 400,000 people. While impressions remain above 200k, 58% audience is Maldivian.
I want to invite all Maldivian #SecularMaldives activists engaging in #NormalizingDissent in a #FikuryInqilab to also share them with the audience. Your privacy still remains in tact. Just need 2 show 28 days activity header, the months overview data, gender/language and country.
The purpose of this is to show the actual depth and size of the networks we have access to, feeding ideas into the Maldives society. They continue to say we are a few, just 2-3 people. That's a lie, and we can show the size of our reach this way.
