Adhaalathu will not “wait and see” when Islam is mocked
Sheikh Ilyas Hussain has said that Adhaalathu Party will not “wait and see” when some sections of the Maldives population deliberately mock Islam.
Sheikh Ilyas, who is also the deputy leader of Adhaalathu and deputy leader of Adhaalathu’s Scholar’s Council, also that Adhaalathu does not receive the cooperation needed to protect and promote Islam in the country and certain groups within the Maldives had begun challenging Adhaalathu’s efforts to promote Islam in the country. He also warned that such trends are bringing Adhaalathu’s patience to an end, and it is forced to take some action on the issue.
“In Islam, religion and politics is interconnected. Secularism is un-Islamic” Sheikh noted.
Sheikh Ilyas also said that Adhaalathu Party has played a key role in the democratic transition of the country and presence of Adhaalathu in the coalition is one reason why people accepted the new government. He also said that people has confidence in Adhaalathu to move ahead with the current government’s religious agenda.
Sheikh Ilyas said that the leaders of the government have forgotten about Adhaalathu’s sacrifices and the confidence and legitimacy it brings to the government.
“We prefer to solve these issues through dialogue. If that fails, we would not hesitate to fight against this government like we did against the last one” Sheikh warned during a series of meetings held in the islands.
