Not even in his wildest did Dictator Nasheed think that he would be disobeyed by the Officers in the Maldives Police Service. He though just like the Military under Moosa Ali Jaleel’s command the Police will obey his every command and will keep on carrying out the illegal arrests and unlawful crackdown on peaceful protestors.
Tonight however the Maldives Police Service has shown that they are made of something else, that the blue blood that runs through their vein is only patriotic and will never be swayed by evil dictators of the day like Mohamed Nasheed.
The Maldives Police rose against Nasheed’s Dictatorship; rebelled against his commands and said they will no longer engage in any kind of illegal activities on his command. The Military thought just like the way they cattle and beat up the Maldivian people, they can do the same against the Police revolutionaries but they couldn’t. The numbers that joined the rebellion grew as the day developed and now the Maldives Police Officers in their blue Uniform have filled the Maldives Independent Square.
The Military several times tried using their weapons on the Police officials, but they were held back by their own defected Military officials. Dictator Nasheed thought he could get away with the Military arresting anyone he likes, just like the way he got the Military to arrest Judges of the Judiciary and hold them in solitary confinement. However today was a wakeup call?
The Police revolutionaries are protected by the Civilians protesting in the area calling for the restoration of a civilian government, release of Judge Abdulla as well as pleading with the Military personals to stand on the path of the truth. The Military officials that defected barricaded the Military’s attempt to attack the Police rebellions. Therefore they were unable to do anything.
Then Dictator thought that they will be very scared if his very dictatorial but small frame appears in the Independent Square. He came to order them but pleaded with them, but before he could utter anymore words, the Police revolutionaries started chanting for his resignation.
Dictator Nasheed got so angry he started retorting back with a huge scowl on his face, but then the Military General and Dictator’s Eunuch Moosa Ali Jaleel and Tholhath the crony Military Minister appointed by him dragged him away into the Military HQ.
We are with you all the way our blooded brothers and sisters in the Police Service. Fight the people’s cause and show that you will never engage in an unlawful act no matter what’s at stake.
