Adhaalath Party “curses” Nasheed, accuses MDP of increasing support through black magic

Religious conservative Adhaalath Party leader Sheikh Imran Abdulla has accused Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) presidential candidate and former President Mohamed Nasheed of using black magic to garner support for the party.

“As a result of bringing in people from India, Sri Lanka, and various parts of the Maldives to perform black magic for [Nasheed], and then casting spells on food and feeding them to the masses, Nasheed has caused large numbers of people to become blind towards all his wrongdoings, and to imagine characteristics of being democratic and pro-development in him, and to be deluded into thinking they are in absolute support of him while in reality they are in a crazed state of enchantment and therefore run behind him,” Imran said, addressing the Jumhoree Coalition’s first major rally in the capital.

“Nasheed’s followers are anti-Islamic people like him and huge criminals. The rest are people under the influence of his black magic. Most people are bewitched and under black magic spells. This is the state of this country,” he said.

“Nasheed is doubtless an agent – one who has been rather well trained – sent in by enemies of Islam and our nationalism,” Imran continued. “A vote cast for Nasheed is an act which will facilitate the eradication of Islam from this country and will hurl us into a state of slavery.”

He furthermore alleged that during Nasheed’s time as President, he had “forced alcohol down the throats of Maldivians”, erased Islam, sold national assets and gave the profits to his “cronies”, and had himself “hidden away in his pockets US$16 million by giving away the airport to GMR”.

Moving away from his religion-based rhetoric, Sheikh Imran then spoke of Chinese superstitions as his justification of why people should not vote for Nasheed.

“In matters involving luck, the Chinese would never opt for number four,” he stated.

“If Nasheed approaches the 1 billion people of China as Candidate Number Four and asks for their vote, he will not be able to get a single vote,” he said.

Imran also spoke of how Nasheed is “spending billions on his campaign while he does not own any major assets or businesses in the country”. Imran then accused Nasheed of accepting funding for his campaigns from “foreign churches aiming to spread anti-Islam propaganda”.

Towards the end of his speech, Imran admitted that he “tends to levy a lot of criticism against Nasheed”, and said that this was not due to any personal grudges against the candidate.

“I have to speak against Nasheed because of the things he has done in these past several years; because of his anti-Islamic policies and anti-Islamic activities. Because I do not wish for a man like to him to become the head of state,” he continued to explain.

“Unlike other candidates, I must speak of Nasheed more openly as even the Quran instructs us to enlighten those who are ignorant and do not know any better.”

The religious conservative party’s leader also criticised the other two candidates contesting against Jumhooree Coalition candidate and businessman Gasim Ibrahim in the upcoming September 7 elections.

Referring to Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM) presidential candidate Abdulla Yameen, Imran said that Yameen had failed in engaging with the public or garnering any support for himself. He alleged that as a result, Yameen had ended up having to bring out his half-brother and former President Maumoon Abdul Gayyoom to campaign for him and PPM instead.

Imran then spoke of President Mohamed Waheed Hassan, alleging he had been unable to maintain the initial “wide coalition” that he had formed as a result of “having chosen the wrong running mate at the wrong time”.

“Although Waheed was leading the race with the largest support base when talk of presidential elections first began, he no longer has the guarantee that he can even manage to get a simple five percent of the votes this election,” Imran said.

In the same week, Adhaalath Party member and current Islamic Affairs Minister Sheikh Shaheem Ali Saeed said that he had repeatedly performed prayers from the time Nasheed was elected President wishing for an end to his time in government, asking “Allah to curse Nasheed by setting dogs on him”.

“Every time I kneeled down in prayer, I repeatedly prayed a ‘dua’ performed by Prophet Mohamed (pbuh) against a man who had spit in his face,” Shaheem said, at a Jumhooree Coalition rally held on Mahibadhoo, stating that this was the first time he had prayed for the toppling of a government.

“The Prophet made this prayer against a man who spat on his face. What happened as a result is, the man was away somewhere on a trip. Then while he was asleep, a man-eating dog came and sniffed at people. Once the dog found this particular man, it attacked him and completely ripped him apart,” Shaheem stated.

Adhaalath Party had previously entered a coalition with Waheed’s Gaumee Ihthihaadh Party (GIP), which has appointed Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) leader Thasmeen Ali as Waheed’s running mate.

They later left the coalition and defected to Jumhooree Gulhun, backing resort tycoon Gasim Ibrahim and his running mate, Dhivehi Qaumee Party (DQP) leader Dr. Hassan Saeed.

The Jumhooree Coalition now consists of the Jumhooree Party, the Dhivehi Qaumee Party, Adhaalath Party and PPM’s former interim Deputy Leader Umar Naseer and his supporters.

Politicians use ‘religion’ as a tool to play with hearts: Nasheed

“As Islam is deeply embedded in the hearts of Maldivians, some politicians are bringing out religion as a political tool to try and tamper with our hearts,” Nasheed said, speaking at the MDP’s rally held in Sri Lanka on Saturday.

Nasheed stated that at different times during the political changes of the past years, various politicians, as well as people who present themselves as religious scholars, have used religion for the purpose of furthering political gain.

Nasheed stated that some political figures who present themselves as “religious scholars” are people who do no more than “slaughter camels or bind leather books”.

“The people of Maldives are now aware of all this. We have seen how the coup regime and the long 30 year regime before that is and has been maintained. The people have rolled up their sleeves and begun work to take the Maldives to a far better place,” Nasheed said.

Adhaalath has displayed nothing but hypocrisy for the past years: PPM MP Nihan

“Imran is obviously wrong about our presidential candidate and his campaign strategies,” PPM MP Ahmed Nihan, said in response to Imran’s criticisms of the party’s presidential candidate Abdulla Yameen.

“There are two political ideologies in Maldives: that of former President Nasheed, and of former President Maumoon. They are the champions of Maldivian democracy and reform,” Nihan said.

“Our party is open about the differences in opinion between PPM and MDP about the levels of contribution these two presidents have made to the democracy movement, but that doesn’t undermine the commendable work done by either of them. Who is Imran to talk about this? The Adhaalath party made no contribution whatsoever to either the reform movement or the efforts to establish democratic governance here,” Nihan retorted.

“In the past seven years, the Adhaalath Party has displayed nothing but record levels of hypocrisy. They are responsible for destroying the healthy competitive political spirit in the country by behaving like a commodity on sale, selling themselves to whichever party offers them a higher price. The PPM has never entered an alliance with them,” he continued.

“Leave aside Imran’s criticisms of Yameen – who is he to call Nasheed an anti-Islamic person? His party’s coalition, Jumhuri Gulhun, has set up a campaign station in my constituency Villimale’ on a plot of government land which has long since been walled away for the purpose of building a mosque. They have set up speakers and are playing campaign songs on a holy plot of land reserved to make a mosque, and still have the nerve to call others ‘laadheenee’ (irreligious)?” Nihan stated.

GIP Spokesperson Abbas Adil Riza stated that Imran was making up excuses while he very well knew the truth of the matter.

“Sheikh Imran knows better than anyone else that the Adhaalath Party did not leave the GIP coalition due to any issues with Dr Waheed’s choice of running mate. They left because we were unable to give them as much money as they asked for their campaign activities,” Riza said.

  1. What's up with the pretty red ribbon his wearing around his head? Gasims little sweethearts brigade. Live by the sword die by the sword, Sheikh. These death wishes against Anni are not the way to heal Maldives.

  2. @ human being
    @ shimy

    Islam schedules prayers, fast, and so on, based on the rotation of the sun and moon. This was the idea of ancient people that reflects in many religions and cultures. In Islam, praying and fasting time is timed when the sun and moon move their courses. However, it is unknown to people how they in the northern part of the world would perform prayers and observe fasting. Over there, the length of day and night is six months long each, and many countries have very longer daylight and darkness. In this case, performing prayers and observing fast are really confusing. Islam does not provide this information and Muslims solely need to use their intelligence to figure out, which implies they are smarter than Islam. Wonder what happened to the Omnipotent, Omniscience "Supreme Being" when He imposed those prescriptions on the human kind. Was it an inadvertent error that He forgot about the Muslim Eskimos that live in the polar regions?

    Salman the Persian (former Zoroastrian monk from Persia)who helped device the Muslim prayers in line with the Zoroastrian practices (BTW, Zoroastrians were followers of a monotheistic God, hundreds of years before the advent of Islam and they pray 5 times and fast every year, while Arab bedouins were devouring desert lizards and burying their female off-springs alive!)was never aware of the existence of Eskimos in the polar regions!

    And one more thing. Apparently, the initial prescription was not 5, but 50 prayers for a day! Hence, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had to resort to high-powered bargaining with God to relieve the burden of prayers on the people. Did someone think that he was dealing with "Raiy thagallaa or Fariva Hussain?? C'mon buddy, give us a break!!

  3. Shimy, your masters, the Saudi government has polluted this world, and butchered innocents worldwide. Enough is enough.

    We are going carbon-neutral and going self-sufficient with clean power generation. And no amount of fearmongering and terrorism your superstitious and backward gang tries can stop us.

    No, you will only steel our defenses, inspire bitter hatred in our hearts - and foster an undying will for independence and freedom from arab imperialism.

  4. Ali Ahmed,

    Now when was i speaking for the Saudi govt who has a kingdom in place, hires prostitutes from Russia, engage in homosexuality,the king- considered to be one of the richest people of the World while my religion preaches not to engage in such acts and never to build up money in your back yard to profit yourself.The King is rich but look at the people there, you really think Saudi Royals are good Muslims, Then think again??

    My religion preaches to consider the next persons needs before considering yours and i do not understand why you are trying to delude people into mixing Saudi politics with what i have said??

    That's why i have included the articles. If i wanted to protect the Saudi Kingdom with all it's royals i wouldn't have included it , would i?

    The hypocrisy of America is adamant everywhere (now never have i mentioned Christians in this because i am not against the religion but the govt).
    And never have you put out a word of protest against the western extremists who do the bad deeds, they never become terrorists even when they use chemical weapons on innocent civilians. They have Impunity.

  5. Atom smasher,

    Goodness gracious, now i am not a scientist or a theorist or a historian but lets just simply say

    1)Why have god implanted us with a big bulging brain and ordered us to think and understand! Muslims have used their brains to find out the way to act on prayers, fasting in the situation you have presented and i know Islam came after Judaism and Christianity!

    2)Why is our brain different from other animals? why have we free choice while all the other animals, trees, the cosmos move along a certain rule doing their daily business, without complaining??

    Why is the earth in a certain position and a permanent tilt can cause destruction and the end of the human race?

    Why is the earth fancied with everything a human needs while all other planets are as they are?

    Surely everything cannot be an accident??? It's too much to count!

  6. Ali Ahmed,

    I do not give a damn about what religion you belong, i am just commenting on the hypocrisy of this World

    Now this is the hypocrisy

    Jew, Christian kills an innocent person – mentally insane
    Muslim kills an innocent person- terrorist, Islamist and never clinically insane.

    And when did i support rape, i thought my religion has a penalty of death to it and how dare you accuse me of supporting it? Shows how mentally retarded you are?? Get a grip will ya!

    Good that your freedom preachers who takes depression pills are going out of the Middle east so that they no longer have to entertain companies like Halliburton who creates a fake WMD scenario!

    And Saudi is the biggest polluter?? Arab imperialism????ehahhahha, i thought your sane countries have toppled and buried them underground? you crack me up!

    So your self sufficient people are going to clean power???Ha-ha hi-hi
    Have you heard of fracking??

    Fracking Water Killed Trees, Study Finds

    David Cameron: 'Back fracking or miss opportunities'

    Now whose for clean air???

  7. Just goes on to say you're the real hypocrite here, Shimy.

    Since the only 'alternate energy' source you see is 'fracking'.

    And yes, the United States attacked Iraq on the orders of your Saudi Arabia.

    And last, but not least - you'd give a damn about my religion; you're the one shoving your half-baked, made up religion down our throats.

    But remember; no matter how much you claim that your religion is Islam, you are'nt fooling anyone.

  8. The coalition led by these so called sheikhs have brought down President Nasheed's government in order to 'save' Islam. Yet all we see are things getting worse. In Nasheed's three years he has built 47 mosques. I am not an Islamic Scholar. But I know whats right and whats wrong.

  9. @Ali Ahmed,

    Ehehheeee, Now when did the American govt become a puppet under the Saudi regime. I thought they had nuclear weapons to annihilate anyone on earth like the way they did to the Native Indians who were the real inhabitants of the land!! You sure know how to change the scenario.

    L. Frank Baum Advocated Extermination Of Native Americans

    The North American Indian Holocaust

    You think people are dumb to believe in your super western democracy bulls***!

    Alas,your dumb brain will never know this if you just watch the mass manipulative media advocated on TV, will you?

    "Since the only ‘alternate energy’ source you see is ‘fracking’"

    Well, i am not the one ordering my people to back 'fracking' when there are other alternatives but your freaking James Cameron is! And since you back these advanced countries who are angels,

  10. And since they do not have other alternatives but fracking, then should we still say that they are the environment protectors??Gawd! i just don't know what to believe in then???

    And since all the other alternatives like wind, light is controlled by some other force, aren't you saying to submit ourselves to an unknown force for clean power???You really are one nut who isn't aware of what you are blurting out???

    Last but not the least -when did i give a damn about what beliefs you have??You can believe in whatever sh**t you believe in! God judges people for their own deeds, not the others!

    I presented to you the hypocrisy of western colonial thugs who looted countries, created chaos for their own advantage later to come out as the champions of democracy??

    Thus i am no fool to believe in everything they say!
