  1. The national heritage, history and identity don't matter to Dhivehistanis because mullahs say they're all part of the jaahiliyyah (the time of Ignorance). To the mullahs the only thing worth preserving is Arab culture and ideology. Today Dhivehistanis are ashamed of their Buddhist past, their South Asian origins, their Grantha script, their matriarchal society, their indigenous dress. Everything from their ancient names to their legal system has been slowly Arabized over the years. Present Dhivehistan is connected to their foggy past by a thin line which will soon be cut and lost into the dark depths of time.

    The simple-minded Wahhabi will not see this. He will ask: what is the use of these budhu and these ancient writings? If they agree with the Koran they're useless and if they contradict the Koran they're dangerous. So they must be destroyed. Let's hope that Ms. Karen Lee can convince at least some Dhivehistanis of the importance of heritage.
