Maldives: Allahu akbar Shouting Police Use Pickaxes to Destroy Artwork Deemed Un-Islamic
Acting on a court order, police used pickaxes to smash the statues on Friday. Muslim politicians, including the outgoing Maldivian president, had deemed the artwork un-Islamic because it depicted human figures.
Recall, Keith Ellison and a DC-based Muslim group gave Maldives their Democrat of the Year Award just a few years ago. A country whose constitution bans non-Muslims from becoming citizens. Reminiscent of the Taliban.
