Opposition to Yoga Day in Maldives - Exclusive

In the Maldives, the ‘India Out’ campaign has taken on a new look after protesters disrupted a Yoga Day celebration.

In what could be called a ‘diplomatic incident’ involving the host government, suspected Islamic rioters attacked an ‘International Yoga Day’ event on June 21 in Male, the capital of the Maldives. Although the opposition is keen to deny any involvement in the PPM-PNC alliance, the actual police investigation has revealed that the material carried by the rioters came to their office, identified by former President Abdullah Yameen’s ‘India Out’ campaign.
