Infidels Mocked During Maldives Wedding

We almost missed this heartwarming story from the Maldives’ Minivan News:

Foreign couple mocked as “infidels” and “swine” throughout resort’s ‘wedding ceremony’

By Azra Naseem
October 26, 2010

“You are swine” and “the children that you bear from this marriage will all be bastard swine,” a tourist couple renewing their marriage vows in the Maldives were told in a ‘traditional Maldivian’ ceremony conducted in Dhivehi at Vilu Reef Beach and Spa Resort.

“Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage. One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel – and we have reason to believe –an atheist, who does not even believe in an infidel religion,” the ‘celebrant’ tells the couple, who appear completely unaware of the humiliation they are being subjected to.

A 15-minute video of the ceremony was uploaded on YouTube on October 24 2010 by a member of staff. Vilu Reef Manager Mohamed Rasheed told Minivan News that the staff member who uploaded the video did it as “a joke”, without “realising the seriousness of the potential consequences”.

Meaning, he didn’t see anything wrong with it.

Vilu Reef Beach and Spa Resort advertises itself as a place where couples can renew their wedding vows “hand in hand against a golden sunset backdrop” and where their “everlasting love” can be sealed by a “kaleidoscope of romantic hues” that covers the sky during the sunset.

In the video the ‘celebrant’ briefs the couple in English, prior to the ceremony, that it will be conducted according to “not only Maldivian” but also “Arabic and Islamic” norms…

For the record, the Maldives are 100% of the famously tolerant Sunni Muslim persuasion.

“Don’t look at her chest”, a man – possibly the videographer – is heard saying as the woman leans over to take a sip from the coconut. She adjusts her neckline.

Men, about ten or more, surround the area both outside and inside the palm fronds, which appears to be a make-shift wedding venue.

The celebrant twirls his thumbs over a piece of paper that he appears to be studying with deep concentration. A male voice asks him if the document is “something new”. He replies that it is “the seventh Article of the Penal Code”.

The document, of which there is a brief close-up in the video, has absolutely no relation to marriage laws in the Maldives. Words that are legible on the document refer to “staff employment”, suggesting that it is a document relating to employment regulations.

Union regulations, marriage union — it’s an understandable mistake.

Asking the couple and other ‘officials’ to raise their hands as is customary for Muslim prayers, the ‘celebrant’ begins his marriage vows.

“Fornication has been legalised according to Article six, 1.11 of the Penal Code”, he chants in a tone favoured by religious scholars. “That is, frequent fornication by homosexuals. Most fornication is by males,” he continues.

“Research has shown that men have a higher sex drive than women,” he says. “According to Article 8 to 6 of the Penal Code, converting to Islam, or circumcision, is not desirable under any circumstances.

“Germs of anger and hatred will breed and drip from the tips of your penises,” he says.

The ‘celebrant’ then switches from his improvised “Islamic and Maldivian marriage laws” to reading aloud from the document in front of him in the same ‘religious’ tone. This time, what he chants to the couple is to do with terms of employment…

When he returns to the ‘marriage vows’, he refers to certain Articles of the Constitution…

“You are swine according to the Constitution,” he declares, solemnly…

“Before buggering a chicken, check if the hole is clean. That is because the people of the countries that you are from are familiar with the taste of the ****holes of chicken,” he chants, still with hands held over the couples’.

“Do not treat with kindness people against whom violence is being committed. Commit more violence against victims of violence. You are not people who have been sent to this world to commit violence.”

He then returns to the matter of staff salaries, which he continues to chant in the same tone as he had done the insults. “Do not complain too much about salaries, or matters regarding salaries. That is against the Penal Code. This is not something I am saying for your benefit – it is a law that we have made.”

He begins to chant loudly about “black swine”, stringing insult after insult and delivering it in the same rather ominous tone that Maldivian religious figures choose to deliver their sermons in.

“You fornicate and make a lot of children. You drink and you eat pork. Most of the children that you have are marked with spots and blemishes… these children that you have are bastards,” he continues solemnly.

Someone else is heard at this point to tell the ‘celebrant’ to “say a little bit more, and then quit.”

As they used to say in Vaudeville, ‘what’s cut, won’t flop.’

The concluding chant is delivered in a gentler, softer voice: “Keep fornicating frequently, and keep spreading hatred among people. The children you will have from this marriage will all be bastard swine.”

Perhaps they wrote their own vows?

“Aren’t they going to suck mouth?” someone is heard asking. “Make them suck mouth”, it is urged. ‘Sucking mouth’ is a term used by Maldivians to denigrate the act of kissing.

“So now, in Maldivian law, in Islam, you are already married”, says the ‘celebrant’, returning to English. The hapless couple are then told to relax and enjoy the celebrations that are to follow, by the end of which a certificate of their nuptials will be ready for them.

Once the ceremony is concluded, the celebrant, who is dressed in a shirt and tie – with the shirt left to hang loose over a traditional Maldivian sarong – swaggers out of the makeshift wedding venue – tugging at his tie and proclaiming himself “President of the Maldives Mohamed Nasheed.”

The celebrant, Vilu Reef Manager Rasheed told Minivan News, is an assistant Food and Beverage Manager named Hussein Didi. As he leaves the wedding venue having concluded his job, someone announces his presence, as “Ghaazee Hussein Didi”.

A Ghaazee is the Arabic name for a judge or magistrate, also adopted to mean the same in Dhivehi.

People clap loudly as the couple, whose marriage vows have just been mocked in some of the filthiest language known to Dhivehi, are videoed making their way to the next part of their ceremony – the planting of a coconut tree to mark the occasion.

Various types of insults about the woman and the man, their clothing and demeanour, are being spoken throughout in the form of a running commentary in a sports video.

As the bride bends down to plant the coconut tree, a man is heard is exclaiming, “Can see her breasts!” The ‘commentator’ observes, “She is wearing something”, he knows, he says, “because my beard has gone grey watching those things… I have seen so many of them now that I don’t even want to look any more when I see them.” …

The video concludes with the ‘commentator’ repeatedly urging the ‘celebrant’ to make the couple ‘suck mouths, suck mouths’.

The resort’s Manager Rasheed was unable to tell Minivan News how much the occasion had cost the couple or where they were from.

Asked if the couple had been made aware of the nature of the ‘wedding vows’ they had taken, Rasheed said they had been sent pictures but not the video.

Our package includes sending them pictures on the CD the very same night”, he said. Rasheed added that the resort does not have a written ‘khuthuba’ or sermon from which to read, nor is the role of the celebrant undertaken by a designated person.

“It is done on a rotating basis. We have been doing it for ten years now, and from a very small start, it has grown into a very successful part of what we offer at Vilu,” he said.

Rasheed said he had become aware of the nature of the ceremony conducted by Didi shortly after it happened. He had banned Didi from performing any more ceremonies, but did not feel it was necessary to take any further action, until the video appeared on YouTube.

The staff member who uploaded the video, Ali Shareef, a shop assistant, is not being disciplined or investigated further, Rasheed said. He complied with the request by the management to remove the video from YouTube.

The ‘celebrant’, Didi, however is currently under investigation by the Head Office in Male’, Sun Travel and Tours.

Minivan News has learned that the ‘wedding package’ offered by Vilu Reef Resort lasts an hour, costs US$1300 which includes the services of a ‘celebrant’, a sailing trip and Maldivian music and dancing.

The happy couple can obtain photographs of their beautiful ceremony in the Maldivian sunset on Vilu Reef Resort for an additional US$440

By the way, will they be performing weddings for infidels at the ‘Ground Zero Mosque’?

    I don’t know why anyone visits an Islamic country for a vacation. If they rule by Islam, then they are routinely intolerant and hateful of other religions.

    In the Maldives the citizens are automatically declared to be Muslim.

    Where are the human rights groups to stand up for freedom of choice?

    Better to be married in the Vatican than to pay a thousand dollars to be judged by these Islamic scum bags.

    Muslim men in particular seem to love harassing women and use excuses like sex drive and religious roles of the sexes to make it acceptable. In Egypt for instance blame often goes to the woman for modesty (a women who has already been mutilated to reduce her sex drive, I might add) though 60% of men confess to harassing women on the street. In Afghanistan and Pakistan where the jerks are hypersensitive on female modesty up to 90% of all wives are hit by their husbands.

    Truly a religion of foul, cretinous men.

    • Right of the People says:

      It’s not a religion it’s a cult just like Jonestown where the cult members blindly follow their “leaders” ever whim, even drinking the Kool-Aide.

      Kind of reminds me of the old He-man Woman Haters Club on the little rascals, “No Wimin Allowed!” They make up all their rules to their advantage. I’m surprised nowhere in the Koran aren’t there passages about being able to lay about in your underwear, drink beer, belch and fart all day while your woman works.

    I wonder if it’s too late for Joy and Whoopi to get their $1300 back. I heard they were planning to renew their vows of idiocy in the Maldives to show how loving and peaceful the vast majority of moderate Muslims around the world really are.

  4. hushpuppy says:

    To beautyofreason: Too many people have bought into the fairytale about ‘nice, peace-loving muslims’ versus the ‘radicalized muslims’.

    Have you noticed how many times since 9/11 you’ll hear calls from all brands of media types (including O’reilly) for ‘all peace-loving muslims to rise up and condemn’ those who are ‘radicalized’? How many times has this ‘call’ gone out in 9 years? Have you noticed how quiet all those so-called ‘peace-loving’ muslims are? There’s a reason for that. It’s because they quietly agree with the ‘radicalized’ ones – because they all get their marching orders from the same.damn.book!

    Those people have been to a large degree duped by a willing left-wing media who are convinced Christians and Christ are the problem, not some 1400 year old middle eastern pagan moon-goddess-worshiping religious fanatics whose ancient progenitor Mohammed conversed with demons in caves and promised a perpetually woody to go with the 72 virgin banshees in their hallucinatory version of ‘paradise’.

    For this, I personally put this confusion squarely on the shoulders of George Bush who, right after 9/11 decreed there are two kinds of muslims: those that are ‘peace-loving’ and those who are radicalized.

    Mind you, he is a Methodist Christian, and Christians by and large can’t mentally conceive of any religion that promotes kidnapping, rape and butchery as dogma. So I’ll cut him a tiny bit of slack there…

    But people need to study the damn koran for themselves because warfare against all non-believers is one of the damn pillers of islam aka: Jihad.

    That’s the first rule of war: Know your enemy! Sun Tzu’s treatise is still taught in military academies it’s such an accurate book to learn from! Moose limbs certainly play on the west’s perceived weaknesses including the willingness to insist no one religion is better/worse than another and besides it’s Christians who are bloodthirsty – and this is mindlessly repeated by stupid women on daily yap shows, the hollyweird rich and braindead, and members of the left-leaning media who are in the tank with groups like CAIR, who, in turn, are in bed with he ACLU.

    So then closed-minded libtards the world over insist islam is ‘peaceful’ because they’ve decreed it to be so in their minds, and they’re too intellectually lazy to think for themself…….whereas some people do as the inspired Bible entreats us to do and that is ‘Prove all things, Hold fast that which is good’.

    If one doesn’t know the the difference between good and evil because they have no referents, they will only have themselves to blame if/when islam becomes the de facto state religion like all over Europe, Eurasia, Africa and is now closing in on the US and Canada. In fact ‘Muslims build Arctic’s first minaret’ – ‘It’s a new frontier for Islam’


    So idiots like those decide it would be ‘romantic’ to be ‘remarried’ by muslims because they think there are two groups of muslims.

    I had a history teacher back there in the mists of time in the 8th grade who taught how evil islam is, and how different the world would have become had they been victorious in their raids – for the worse.

    And how many people think Christopher Columbus set sail to discover a new route to India just because he was curious? It was a necessity to find an alternate route to India because the muslims had taken over and blockaded the original route; and sailors were warned to steer clear of those routes lest they run into ta-dah! muslim pirates!.

    The past is prologue and there’s nothing new under the sun.

    “Muslim men in particular seem to love harassing women and use excuses like sex drive and religious roles of the sexes to make it acceptable.”

    That’s because the koran teaches men how, when and how much to harass, beat and rape their women. They are even given permission to kill their women if she somehow ‘brings shame’ to him.

    ‘Honor killings’ sound familiar here? Although the term ‘honor killings’ is not found in the koran, the circumstances and punishments are clearly laid out.

      Informative and accurate post. I’m just going to poo poo a little on putting it on Bush. He was trying to draw that distinction, real or imagined, to at least try and project the optics that Americas only interests were in the hope for peaceful coexistence and security. He and the entire national security team knew the true nature of the fight – the 9/11 commission made that pretty clear.

      They rested their strategy on setting up a stable Democracy in Iraq, and perhaps the naive faith that there would be some sane people to rise up there. Can’t comment on the wisdom of that now, but I don’t think any of them figured that a vast wing of the government-media complex were ideologically closer to the enemy than their country.

    • Adam Moreira says:

      Another reason for moderate Muslims (if they exist, I’m sure that some do) being quiet for the most part though may also be out of fear of reprisal…that if they speak out, they or their families may end up in danger of life or limb. Whether or not that fear is rational, especially in North America, is debatable at best; it does appear to be rational in Europe and Asia outside of China, the Koreas, and Japan.

      As for Iraq and the Mideast, I have to believe that the proper solution would have been the Yugoslavia solution post-WWII—a ruthless ruler, with American backing, who would rule with an iron fist and enforce law and order. Note that Yugoslavia didn’t fall apart until after Marshal Tito died.

    • Strauss says:

      Reporters seemed at first reluctant to report that it is a Muslim conducting the “service.” Whether the man is ordained, trained, or not, he is expressing his clear knowledge of the clear Koranic message, which is, “To hell with Non-Muslims.” It’s not a secret; Islam teaches intense hatred. “hushpuppy” is on the the right track; others, please catch up. Learn! Then, respond! “Islam” wants you to grovel in submission.
      I am a Christian Wedding Minister, serving non-Christian families, and I bless my couples regardless of their doctrine. I strongly invite the Muslims now, “Say sorry. Apologize and give up the hatred. Try love.”

  5. hushpuppy says:

    I know you’re correct tranquil.night :)

    I’m not dumping on Bush. In fact I think he was the right President at the right time when 9/11 happened. He was exactly what America needed as a leader and he conducted himself with dignity.

    I can’t begin to imagine the kind of pressure he was under to keep American safe, offer encouragement and hope while rescuers were working flat out to find survivors under all the rubble, to encourage the nation, keep up with intel reports, give State of the Union addresses, and to do everything that needed doing.

    And he even caught flack for proposing a national day of prayer in Thanksgiving!

    I can’t imagine dinglebarry or Billy Clinton behaving with such grace under pressure.

    I don’t think people give him enough credit.

    • tranquil.night says:

      Ah, forgive me. Overzealous as usual. We’re in agreement.

      Yes, we knew one day history would honor the truth and the dignity/faith that man had in America’s essential goodness. It’s a pleasure that the day is coming much sooner than we expected, albeit at such a harsh cost. But the scale has finally tipped on the poll asking who’s favored between Bush/Obama. It’s beginning to look like sanity is prevailing.

      Now if we could just find an easy solution to the backwards teachings and practices of Islamists.
