The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) unequivocally condemns this morning’s violent attack on the event celebrating World Yoga Day held at the National Stadium.
These types of egregious and violent acts have no place in a peaceful democratic society such as ours. We welcome the government’s decision to launch a serious investigation into the matter and applaud the prompt actions taken thus far including the arrests.
The MDP hopes that the process of justice is swift for those responsible. We would also like to note that World Yoga Day has been celebrated in this country since 2015.
