I am very happy to introduce a brand new comic series from the Maldives, titled ”Demahom and His Imaginary Friends” by Maldivian artist @Ibbe4787. This is the first strip in the series. Check it out, follow and retweet if you like it. #NormalizingDissent #SecularMaldives
The series comes in both English @demahomenglish and Dhivehi @demahomdhivehi targeting both a local Maldivian audience and a global audience. Like, follow and retweet if you like what you see and wanna see more. #NormalizingDissent #SecularMaldives

Saw this photo of @dr_iyaz with Shaheem in Saudi shaking hands, showing camaraderie I guess πŸ€”
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.

Religious people claim God as creator and reason for us to being here. This is a fundamental truth as far as believers are concerned. Evolution elegantly debunks the claim by explaining with evidence how we got to be here and who we are.
@Dr_Adhsar @RitualizeAzazil @Dewey8Dewey @0x526978 @david_verbrugge @JAkmedd @ZamZamFarish @DhivehiOne @KevinAtheist @yaattey @blackpa84447806 @MurtadMilli @allah6988 @MixaanFaqih @iruvayani @xoroseii @Ravans1 @AreyougoneMAD1 @EraserSecular @AchmedKafir @faro0485 @bodualee @ufadollz @blu3Greenalgae @mardoohkalaange @noseculars @sirumeenaa @SerinaWilliam19 And once the story of creation is gone from your narrative, then everything else is debunked as a default. If ”god” did not create us, then any stories about what this imagination wants us to do is nothing more than a story deeply socialized.
@Dr_Adhsar @RitualizeAzazil @Dewey8Dewey @0x526978 @david_verbrugge @JAkmedd @ZamZamFarish @DhivehiOne @KevinAtheist @yaattey @blackpa84447806 @MurtadMilli @allah6988 @MixaanFaqih @iruvayani @xoroseii @Ravans1 @AreyougoneMAD1 @EraserSecular @AchmedKafir @faro0485 @bodualee @ufadollz @blu3Greenalgae @mardoohkalaange @noseculars @sirumeenaa @SerinaWilliam19 And therefore to believe in a God is then just ignorance. Ignorance is something you can get rid of with education. I would hope this is the type of thinking that #ExMuslim #atheist who is also a #SecularMaldives activist would/should have.

This is an important conversation that nobody seems to be having. @MohamedNasheed’s sovereign nation fund needs to be back on the agenda, I think. If the unthinkable happens, which the scientists studying climate change think it will, then Maldivians are in a lot of trouble.
How does the entire population of a country who have been made into climate refugees get back to any sort of normal life after the events? Most ppl's income sources are deeply tied to the geography of Maldives - tourism/resorts and landlords/real estate. All of it will be gone.
A lot of people lack the necessary skills, education to thrive in a modern world in the event of forced migration or relocation in the worst case scenario. In such an event, families would get broken up due to circumstances out of control of the people being impacted.

I don't see why that is a problem. In mature democracies opposing ideas air out their views on how they think the best approach should be. I think Islam should have no place in the government and will be voicing out accordingly. Nuroa dhariyakah kireh nulibeyne.
Those of us interested in pushing for dialogue should engage in that dialogue that advances their interests and how they see the country they love advance in to the future as free people. Change begins with dialogue and discussion. And for that you have to be willing to express.

I appreciate the tag man to let me know. Congratulations on coming to a mental place that allowed you to make an anon and wanting speak up. The more the better. I hope to see your public engagement in #MvTwitter networks on issues that r important to building a #SecularMaldives
Some areas to focus would be on issues with islam. You can start thinking about #NormalizingDissent as a vital aspect to breaking the barriers that islam has built around personal freedom. Right now as many conversations around islam can be helpful in the long run as criticism...
...of islam become commonplace. Maldives small population and high connectivity of the people on social media would allow for quick proliferation of ideas with deep penetration in to the psyche of younger people. We won't see results immediately but over time we will.

@noseculars Did you seriously think I am here for the likes? Really, that's what you think this is about?

Here. Let me show you what's in the hood.

Oh, before you look at the images, ask yourself what's the population of Maldives.
@noseculars How does this trend look over a the months? I glad you didn't ask. But no issues. I will show you. It does fluctuate.
@noseculars Do you want more? I bet you got the point by now.

Can I ask you a question? Do you know that data and computer scientists have successfully run experiments of social engineering on social media platforms over large sample groups with impressive results?

That is a really good picture. President @ibusolih has such a great vibe about him, you can't help but like him. I have high hopes for his #Agenda19 reforms. #SecularMaldives will aim to build on top of it.
This is the perfect game theoretperfect optimum opportunity for the #SecularMaldives movement. President @ibusolih, @MohamedNasheed’s defining leadership as the speaker oof the parliament and #Agenda19 carries deep and meaningful political aspirations of the Dhivehi people.
The reforms outlined in #Agenda19 would be foundational to a more free and fair society. It can begin to happen now or later, but a #SecularMaldives can't exist without those reforms. The coinciding of the timing of the current wave of secular activism and the current MDP...

@iamabdullaahsan There is no ”natural state” in an evolving animal other than to evolve. Lived experiences of the collective human species have taught us that violence by one over the other, be it individual or organized in groups does not promote social cohesion, harmony or good.
@iamabdullaahsan And that it is in fact detrimental to the wellbeing of both individuals and groups alike. Humans are different from lions (to respond to your specific example) in one fundamentally unique way. That humans are able to learn from our collective experience and then pass down that..
@iamabdullaahsan ...knowledge to the next generation, accumulating knowledge and wisdom along the way. Lions can't do this and only influence their immediate offspring and does not continue on and that cycle repeats. This is why humans have build civilizations and gone beyond our planet...

Maldives Mullah Hassan Moosa Fikury declares Face App haram. This thread isn't about the details of that, but rather a thread of Face App outputs of Fikury & some of his Mullah buddies in the #Maldives. Check it out.

Overexposure is the key πŸ”‘ to desensitizing people to ideas that they have been shielded from all their lives.

When people are desensitized to ideas and materials that they found offensive, it is conducive to allow for an environment to advocate for #SecularMaldives.
This is why #NormalizingDissent is such an important aspect of a strategy towards the secularization of #Maldives.

It also plays similar kind of role as politics cartoons and memes does in the proliferation of ideas fast.
It also allows for people to question things that they would have otherwise normally wouldn't.

Religious beliefs of people that cause harm to others don't deserve respect or silence from us.

Here is a suggestion. You all would really like to know who the people behind the anons are. So why don't you pray for Allah to look through the front cameras of our devices and then expose us all. After all you claim him to be all powerful.
This should be pretty easy I imagine for someone with all the power you all attribute to this imagined God of yours.

I mean anonymous members are said to have done this already. Why can't your God? #IsHeEvenRealBro?
In case Allah exposes your privacy!!!

My advocacy 4 #SecularMaldives is born & shaped out of my own lived experiences. There is no way anyone can bribe me or convince to cease my activities. That is because you can't erase my past. My revenge is taking Islam out of the Maldives equation. We will #NormalizeDissent.
And I extend my sense of empathy to everyone else who also similar experiences and grievances. Our shared past unites us in our common endeavor. We will persevere against the odds till we win. Any other outcome will be unacceptable. #FikuryInqilab
As you may have realized at this point, all of this is very personal for me. I have no shame in admitting how personal all of this is. None of us can escape how we are shaped by our own experiences and environment.

Realizing a hive mind could be leveraged for activism against Islamic hegemony in the #Maldives and promoting political change is a game changer for #SecularMaldives.

#NormalizingDissent #FikuryInqilab #Anonymous
A lot of us have unique and specialized skills. And these skills needed to be combined through collaboration and support of each other on issues and values we find ourselves aligned on. Such issues are UDHR implementation, democracy, health care, education, quality of life etc.
The individual skills of planning, organizing, debating, content creation, coordination, fact-checking, scanning for opportunities and relevancy and much more needed for effective activism don't exist for a single individual to master.

Who responds is irrelevant when the movement is an internet hivemind. What matters is the response. A lot of us do many other things, hence the need for large numbers of activists - that way the conversation is kept going in rotation 27/7 now for many days. And can be kept going.
What matters is the, questions, answers and responses to them, and how many people get to read them, contemplate over them and make different decisions based on new information.

As you can this has been a rather effective and efficient strategy so far.
This approach was explicitly explained a while back. And I keep insisting you all should pay attention if you need to understand the fast changing dynamics at play as we continue to calibrate and tweak approach on a need to basis as things evolve and change in the environment.

Muhammad the self proclaimed prophet was a disgusting man who made people drink his urine and made stories to justify the practice.

This is a #thread about this disgusting behavior of Islam’s founding conman.

A #BunyeyBunyey story!
Here he pisses in an obvious drinking bowl because he is too lazy to get out of bed or something. Then makes a story when his woman accidentally drinks it.
Another #BunyeyBunyey version of the story.

As soon as you say anything about Islam, they cry its an attack. And precisely for this reason we need to normalize dissenting and through that process desensitise as many people along the way to criticism of Islam.

@Alif_mv We will #NormalizeDissent whether you like it or not. And like a pathogen spreading in a contagion situation will make Islam a casualty. We keep spelling out the strategy and you people can't comprehend what is going on. Your focus is two narrow.

Imagine it like this.
@Alif_mv We are taking a bet that there are a lot more laadheenee's, exmuslims, atheists in the Maldives than people are comfortable to admit. We will take this hypothesis and test it's limits. That process starts with making it normal to criticize oppressive ideas in Islam.
@Alif_mv We’ve labelled that phase of #SecularMaldives activism as #NormalizingDissent. Once criticism becomes the new normal, we hope to tap into the democratic and reethi dhiriulhun aspirations of the Maldives people. And enable comparison of the oppressive and destructive nature...

PSA: The #exmuslim #atheist #anons of #Maldives loosely organized around the idea of #SecularMalives is now the new normal. This has been long time coming. Religionist shud work on changin their mindset around stopping us to learning to co-exist. This is 2019. #NormalizingDissent
Allow me to spell it out for you. The year is 2019. And you are helpless to stop this phenomena. #FukuryInqilab
