Proud maldivians – the only country in the subcontinent to be not directly ruled by colonial power and also have a history of defeating a colonial power. No other subcontinent country can be proud like Maldivian.


Mumbaikar, the only reason the Maldives atolls were never colonised was because you were populated by subsistence fishermen just a few centuries ago. Unlike India you were considered not worthy of exploition by the Europeans. You did not have great cities, exploitable wealth and a rich and ancient culture. Only tuna, tuna and more tuna.
You were converted to islam in the twelfth century. Ibn Batuta did not even know you existed. You have zero arab ancestry so your preoccupation with radical islam and jihad is quite amusing to us cow worshippers.
Hope the tuna catch is good today.
