Slain Blogger’s Dad Wants India to Check Intolerance in Maldives

Yameen Rasheed, 29, was stabbed to death outside his apartment in Male, the capital city of Maldives last month. A popular blogger and a democratic rights activist, Yameen had been receiving threats for quite some time.
In his critical commentaries of the Maldivian government, the ‘disobedient writer’ made starkly clear his scepticism towards their every move. His blogs ran on common themes of religion, incompetence of Maldivian police, and thorough scrutiny of the ruling leaders whose international dealings are bringing corruption into the country.
