When the very basic principles of belief are crossed over by a wrongdoing, there is the initial reaction, shock and build up of emotions, resulting in an outburst, rage, and hibernation, to name a few.

At the same time, another rally was taking place on the other side of the beach which saw thousands of woman march the streets of Male’, calling for  Waheed to leave […]

    Culture of Police Brutality

    There is a history of police brutality in the Maldives. Police brutality and violation of human rights are deeply entrenched within the culture of the Maldivian security forces. The security forces refused to reform itself with the democratic change that was brought to this country.
