KK from Male :

The fails to understand or at least overlooked the fact that, though Maldivians are Sunni's majority hardly follow Islamic principles. Most of us love our religion and easily would get annoyed by bad comments towards Islam but hardly we are practicing Muslims. It's like we are supporters of Islam not practicing Muslims.

As for authors claims that radicalism is growing is nothing but Hawks. But, the fact is number of Maldivian joining to ISIS is increasing compared to 2 years ago. However, the numbers remain low. But, our so called democratic president Mr.Nasheed who in his interview exergerated the figure but later he admitted his mistake.

Please gathere correct information about your articles. This is totally bogus and discussing. There are no terrorists nor Maldives sents any terrorists to the battles. Few gang stars went to war in the past but that's past. This article is false and is only written to distract tourists from going to Maldives. I warn benarnews that we will take necessary action against this kinds of misleading community articles.

Ahmed from Male City :

the government is not denying that Maldivians are going abroad specially Syria to fight But not to that exaggerated number. I am wondering how Ms Azra Naseem became a Counter Terror Expert, she is a mouth piece for the opposition MDP and it's a fact. Maldives govt is working with international community in addressing the issues related and has been engaged with EU, US and neighboring India n Srilanka on stopping these youngsters leaving the country to Syria.

You are making a mountain out of a molehill. A few radicalised Maldivians financed by the Maldivian Democratic Party to make news headlines in the western media has successfully attained their objectives.
ISIS and those radicalised “Islamists” is a creation of the west. Presidential candidate Trump made it public.
