It's seem that #atheist and #exmuslim discussions have achieved sustained and none stop dialogue & discussion on #Maldives Twitter-sphere. We hav come a long way from where we were even an year ago. Now to scale it out further in terms of engagement. #recalibrate #expandoutward
How would we go about expanding the conversation into the mainstream? Here is my proposition. We need to work our way into pretty much every topical issue-based conversation that happens in the country. We can do this on social media given the high Internet and smartphone...
...adoption in the country. (ref: and most if them are on social media. Anyone who has any level of interest in Maldives politics has a twitter account. What people say on Twitter are quoted in news media through post embeds, which then has led to those..
...readers in turn getting Twitter accounts as well. Twitter is quite healthy in the Maldives. So this has to be the platform we make our stand. This also allow us to show up in numbers. Those with circumstances favourable to be ”outed” should use their real identities, while... use anonymous accounts just like now.

The mindset to which we must arrive at the challenge of being part of every conversation in the country is that of commenting on newspaper articles comments sections. Basically just join the conversation, follow though...
...with providing exmuslim, atheist and scientific perspective into everyday issues that impact everyday people. Buy doing so; we would hope to trigger a few responses from the people we are engaging with. Outrage would be the most noticeable reaction, which we would have to...
...calm and rationality and look to pushing the envelope inch by inch. But more importantly I am betting on a small group who would approach with curiosity. Educate and help these curious folks, by pointing them towards resources that they would find useful to make the change...
...leap they need to make. But once they change our numbers multiply, and then we repeat the process over and over again. We are going to have to win in a market place of ideas with better ideas delivered and engaged in a sustainable way.

Again, keep in mind the change...
...we are looking for won't happen overnight. But blowing it out into the open would mean we would arrive at new doors that we can further explore navigation once they present itself. Change has to happen via legislation, which are backed by the will of the people. For this to... happen we need to change the people to be favourable towards the idea of secularising the country, thus giving us the political backing needed to take the final steps from there on to #SecularMaldives.

So this is my proposal on how we move forward. I invite others who...
...may have different ideas on approaching to solve this problem to present them and talk about them. If you think this proposal has any merit, lets work on this together. I don't know what the definitive outcome of all of this would be, we can only do it and find out.
Not doing anything would mean prolonging the state of suffering for minorities in the country. So what will it be? Are we going to give it an attempt?
