  1. State-sponsored thugs going around attacking anyone they think is a threat to the regime's continued, illegal occupation.

  2. Violence will increase as long as Nasheed and his thugs want. They are the people who are behind these violence and they think that these kind of activities will bring down the Gov. and then Nasheed can become the President.

    Nasheed is a man of violence
