Gayoom calls for Muslim World League assistance to protect national peace, order and faith

Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom has called for assistance from Islamic Arab countries in developing education and other services in the Maldives, as well to protect the country’s faith by “groups” he alleged are trying to weaken it.

Speaking at the Constituent Council of the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, Gayoom said that cooperation from Islamic Arab countries would be vital to fight political and economic challenges currently facing the country, according to the Sun Online news service.

The former president reportedly claimed that the present economic downturn, a loss of peace and order in the country and efforts “by groups of people to weaken people’s Islamic faith”, were among the most pressing challenges presently facing the Maldives.

The Muslim World League is an Islamic NGO said to consist of sixty members representing 30 different nations.

  1. the same Maumoon, then calling for "religious freedom in Maldives", then becoming a citizen of US under the worst ever enemy of Muslims Bush, torturing and murdering his own 'brothers', now licking the Muslim world and begging for money - to be pocketed again by himself, his family and dictator friends

  2. I wholeheartedly agree with Dr Gayoom. We need to become more Muslim and more Arab.

    Dear friends. Maldives needs another 30 years of Gayoom rule.

    You probably have no choice but to stay. I will not come back. That is it.
