“Illegal to be non-Muslim in Maldives”- Correction
Posted on April 13th, 2013

Asada M Erpini

A homosexual blogger from Maldives, who now lives in exile in Sri Lanka, is implied to have said that ………

Dear Editor,

My name is Hilath Rasheed and I am the subject of an article on your website written about me by Asada M Erpini titled ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Illegal to be non-Muslim in Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.

It seems that Mr. Erpini has misinterpreted my comments to The Independent newspaper. As the first commentator to your article pointed out, I was referring to Maldives, not Sri Lanka. I was saying that it is illegal to be non-Muslim in Maldives. Maldives’ Constitution demands all Maldivian citizens to be Muslims. Sri Lanka is a multi-religious and multi-cultural society.

Therefore, I would greatly appreciate if you correct the article.

Thanking you in advance for yourƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  kind cooperation.

Yours sincerely

Hilath Rasheed

    Dear Asada Erpini
    The article says’
    “Following a miraculous recovery – doctors told him there was less than a 1 per cent chance of surviving such an attack – Hilath, 35, now lives in exile in Sri Lanka. He misses home, but a country where it is illegal to be non-Muslim and violent forms of religious fundamentalism are on the rise is no place for a homosexual secularist, he says.”
    He is referring to Maldives, not Sri Lanka

    I told you he was likely deliberately misquoted by the terrorist diaspora for propoganda purposes.
