Against Extremism in the Maldives

Our little island-nation is going through a lot of changes. Our rapid and remarkable development since the 70's has opened our geographically reclusive country to new outlooks and ideologies. We have realized the value of democracy, and the right to have an opinion and to speak one's mind.
However, our country has never looked more divided that it does today. Extremism, both religious and political, has hijacked our nation. Our country is at an economic crisis, and the "I'm right, you're wrong" mindset has stalled our progress in getting through it. We have to get rid of this mindset, and learn how to work together and value differing opinions to not only get out of the crisis, but to mature as a country.
