Jamiyyathul Akhawaathu denies campaigning for MDP

Local religious NGO Jamiyyathul Akhawaathu has today issued a press release denying rumors that it has been campaigning for the ruling Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP).

The NGO said that it would never follow or promote a political party ”especially a party that is anti-religion such as the Maldivian Democratic Party.”

”Some of them are circulating false information regarding the NGO, saying that the NGO is campaigning for the ruling MDP,” said Jamiyyathul Akhawaathu in a press statement. ”Jamiyyathul Akhawaathu is not an NGO that is working under a political party.”

The NGO further called on those circulating “these false allegations” to “stop misleading people and fear God.”

”Rather than spending their valuable time on such things, we call upon them to work for the benefit of life and afterlife.”
