    Male/New Delhi: The Maldives halted Pakistan's attempt to target India on Islamophobia at a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Countries (OIC) on Friday.

    Ambassador Thilmeeza Hussain, the Permanent Representative of the Maldives in New York at the OIC meet said, singling out India, which the largest democracy in the world and multicultural society and home to over 200 million Muslims, alleging Islamophobia would be factually incorrect.

    "Maldives cannot support any action within the OIC, that singles-out or targets New Delhi," Ambassador Hussain said at the virtual meet of the 57-member grouping.

    “The Maldives stands firmly against such actions anywhere in the world, including Islamophobia, xenophobia or any form of violence to promote political or any other agenda. However, targeting a specific country will be like sidestepping the real issue. In this light, let me state that singling out India, the largest democracy in the world and multicultural society and home to over 200 million Muslims, alleging Islamophobia would be factually incorrect”.


    “ It would be detrimental to the religious harmony in the South Asian region. Islam has existed in India for centuries and it is the second-largest religion in India, with 14.2% of the country's population” she added.

    The Maldives also stood with India over the removal of article 370.

    CONGRATULATIONS India - you've got Maldives in your corner.

    How are things coming along with your actual (other) neighbor - Nepal?

    Thank you all brothers and sisters from Maldives. Being a Muslim country, Maldives is on our side, while a so called 'Hindu country' Nepal is not.

    LoL great job you have Maldives on your side. I mean country has a less than 300k population and relies entirely on India for its tourism and trade. It has a GDP of 6 billion so lets clap over your achievement. Not mention they are about to go bankrupt and need india to bail them out. Job well done India great achievement indeed.

    Maldives is not even important for Pakistan but it is for china because of its strategic location. The last govt was supportive of china and even our COAS visited. This govt now is an indian puppet. So its policies changed.

    No. SL is still India friendly after that Rajapakse was thrown out.
    Also BD is within India's fold.


    CHina builds infra in an country, for it's benefit only. It is not doing any charity. Pakistan will realise this hard way. This is the new economic colonisation

    It's the same as Iceland supporting USA in the "Grand coalition" of nations for attacking Iraq , back in the days.
    These small nations are insignificant and have to side with a large country on which their economy relies and they cannot disobey that regional bully .

    Cant expect Nepal to be on indias side because of religion. They have their reasons, Maldives have theirs.
    If only the government can focus on economy and education a lot of countries will be on indias side. But this government has some weird priorities

    Looks more to me like sour grapes. Time will tell if our decision was right so please keep your inner hindutva jyotishi to yourself.
