“10 years is enough. In fact, it is in excess of the time I wanted to govern”. He was the second President of the Republic of Maldives, governing from 1968 to 1978. Sumuvvul Ameer Ibrahim Nasir Rannabandeyrikilegefaanu (Born 1926 and Passed away on 22-11-2008).
Today I had the honour to pay my last respects to a man who I had never seen, the first President of the Second Republic. As the nation mourns the demise of this great figure, it would be right for us to acknowledge the great things he did for the betterment of this nation and for the profit of the people of the Republic of Maldives. What he did wrong, is for you to judge and not to say at the time of his death with his body still not buried.
Ibrahim Nasir was an enigmatic figure who governed Maldives for the benefit of the people and not for the benefit of himself. Just, fair, courageous, and with a keen sense of politics, Ibrahim Nasir felt that whatever developments that was needed for the Maldivian, should be in its most complete form.
To acknowledge all that he has achieved for this nation would be too long a list, but, not mentioning the development of the, judicial system, education system (the current G.C.E Education system, the telecommunications system (the T.V.M, Radio Maldives), the fisheries industry, the tourism industry (first resort being Vihamanaafushi, now Kurumba Village, Bandos Island Resort), the health system, the Airport and the good governance of all the atolls would be a folly on my part (and I rarely make follies)!.
When the time came for the Maldives to be independent from the British Protectorate, it was Ibrahim Nasir who made this crucial decision for the people. When Ibrahim Nasir felt that he had governed Maldives for too long a time (10 years in time), he peacefully resigned from his post as the President of the Maldives. This is the child of true democracy, unlike Our Foreverness Golhaabo For Life, who felt that even 30 years of biting the Presidency is not enough, and crying for more!! ( hard as it may be, let the readers know that I am in no mood for foul language today)!
Woe onto the Maldivians when Our Foreverness Golhaabo For Life was chosen as the next President of the Maldives! When Ibrahim Nasir handed this scum-bag of Our Foreverness Golhaabo as the next President, we all found out what he did right?! Talk of biting the hand that feeds you!! Hehehehehe…
His Foreverness Golhaabo’s cronies, Abbas, Illyas and others who created a nuisance for the whole family of Ibrahim Nasir and other members of Velaanaage became the next cabinet Ministers.
Making foul songs and poems, blaring them from the speakers along the streets of Male’ and in the areas where Nasir’s relatives lived, rioting on the streets, forcing young school children to come out and participate in the demonstrations against the Velaanaage Family and the ministers chosen by Nasir were the dish of those days. And Hammittey, who cried like a little girl, in Parliament when Nasir decided to resign, was more than happy to become a member of the Cabinet of his brother, so that he may make his disgusting advances on the young men of the nation.
Just ask any old person above the age of 50 who is alive on the streets of Male’ today and you shall have the truthful answer. Or you may even ask a brave soul such as Moomina Haleem who was the first female Minister and the likes who were forced into self-exile due to the nuisance created by His Foreverness For Life and his cronies! Or even have a look at the T.V for crying out loud!!!!
AND His Foreverness Golhaabo HAD THE BLOODY NERVE TO COME ON T.V TODAY AND SAY HE WAS NOT AWARE OF IT ALL THIS TIME???? Bloody……..!!!!!!!?? THIS IS WHY WE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN RIDDEN OF THE OLD His Foreverness Golhaabo SOONER!! How else could we survive with such a DEMENTED old fart who does not know whether he has crapped in his nappy or not???
This is indeed a strange day for all of us!! Even in here!! We have seen the REAL who is who in Maldives..!! Speaking of that, this morning, The All Knowing Sakeebu was on T.V trumpeting about the great doings of Nasir. When Ismail Nasir got off Sri Lankan Airlines with his fathers body, The All Knowing Sakeebu was so saddened by the fact that he could not get to know Ismail Nasir. And whose fault was that? None other than His Foreverness Golhaabo, who made sure that Maldivians would only remember Golhaa as the father of democracy and who brought Maldives into the current future, thereby taking credit for all that is done for Maldives by Ibrahim Nasir. Hehehehe… Even Helldom is better off than Maldives when His Foreverness was through with it!
Today, the Devil was flabbergasted to be quite close when the Pyromaniac Abbas and Illyas scrambled into Theemuge after the coffin of Ibrahim Nasir, to pay their “last respects”. Even I would be ashamed to do that after all that they had done! Adding to this dishonour was the fact that His Foreverness and his brood went to pay their last respects when Ibrahim Nasir’s family did not clearly wish then to do so (whispered in my septic ears by a clever little demon)?
What we all witnessed today is the fact that it was Ibrahim Nasir who developed this nation. Not His Foreverness Golhaabo For Life Our God! Listen to the T.V. Listen to the people whose mouths have been gagged for 30 years by the threats of His Foreverness. Today, the gag has come off! Today, the truth has come out. For 30 years, the truth has been hidden from the Maldivians, trashed away in a corner, the truth lay, now to be revealed! It was not His Foreverness who did all this for Maldives, it was Ibrahim Nasir and our forefathers. Even those days, people where more aware of democracy than today!!!!! That is why Ibrahim Nasir resigned from Presidency, and that is why today, Ibrahim Nasir is being visited by more people of Maldives than His Foreverness Golhaabo For Life could ever have wished for!!!
And the T.V.M, who, for 30 years was arse-kissing His Foreverness Golhaabo was heaping the long over-due praise upon praise for Ibrahim Nasir!! Hehehehehe…. Talk about hiding the truth for 30 years.
The fact is, if His Foreverness For Life, won the elections instead of Not For Life Anni, then the demise of Ibrahim Nasir, in Mount Elizabeth Hospital of Singapore, would just be mentioned in the post script of the 8.00pm news on T.V.M. And neither would we see this sad but GREAT DAY, when a true President would return to his own country to rest amongst its people and that too in great honour, with dignity and with a great outpouring of grief!!!
May God have mercy on Sumuvvul Ameer Ibrahim Nasir Rannabandeyrikilegefaanu’s soul, grant him Peace in Heaven and grant courage and strength to his family in this hard time. Amen!
P.S. Even when I was paying my last respects I was bloody shocked to notice that in the side-room that we were in, that there were plenty of hooks on the wall of Theemuge? wonder where the paintings or pictures on those hooks!
