Some practices of Muslim Maldivians are sadly very damaging to themselves, their children and society. Muslim Maldivians take censorship very seriously and there are many things banned for Muslim Maldivians by their Scholars.Take example this conversation on Facebook:
Hathim Ah Long Ali Ok, serious question is serious ... How strict is Maldivian law towards the showing of ''other faiths'' on Cable TV. I was watching Nat Geo, and they were showing a really interesting program about Jesus Christ, Bethlehem and the Palestine-Israel Conflict all rolled into one ''Inside Bethlehem'' I believe... So 10 minu...tes in as I was getting more engrossed in it .... The program suddenly cuts to black and the channel is completely cut leaving an empty screen... Was it pure coincidence or are they not allowed to show such stuff on Cable? - I did some surfing and even Animal Planet was cut off .... So just bad timing perhaps?
