NEW DELHI: The bomb attack targeting Former Maldives President and current Majlis Speaker Mohamed Nasheed has brought the spotlight back on the epithet that the country, at one point, had one of the world’s largest number of ‘ISIS’ jihadists per capita in Iraq and Syria. On ‘The Gist’, N Sathiya Moorthy, Distinguished Fellow and Head-Chennai Initiative, Observer Research Foundation (ORF) discusses the assassination attempt, who the needle of suspicion points to and the Maldives’ counter terrorism and de-radicalisation strategy. In conversation with StratNews Global Associate Editor Amitabh P. Revi, the Maldives expert analyses the enemies Nasheed has made as the country’s first democratically elected President, what the attack means for the archipelagic nation and how India is affected by extremism in the atolls.
