Big Breaking News: Maldives Government Takes Action Against Ministers for Insulting PM Modi

Big news from the Maldives! The government there has decided to suspend three of its ministers – Mariyam Shiuna, Malsha, and Hassan Zihan. Why? Well, it turns out they made some really mean comments about India's Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. This happened after PM Modi visited Lakshadweep.

The Maldives government didn't like this at all. They said they're not happy about people saying bad things, especially when it comes to leaders of other countries. They even suspended these ministers to show how serious they are about it. They also mentioned that these ministers' opinions don't represent what the government thinks.

So, what exactly did Mariyam Shiuna say? She called PM Modi a 'clown' and a 'puppet of Israel' in a post on social media. But, here's the catch – she deleted the post afterward.

Now, because of all this drama, people are canceling their plans to visit the Maldives. Reports say more than 8,000 hotel bookings and 2,500 flight tickets have been canceled. That's a big deal for a place that relies on tourists!

Some important people are not happy with what happened. Former Maldivian President Mohamed Nasheed called these remarks "appalling" and said the government should make it clear that they don't agree with these comments. He also mentioned how important India is for the Maldives' safety and success.

Another important person, former Vice President Ahmed Adeeb, strongly criticized the comments. This incident doesn't just affect these ministers; it also affects the relationship between India and the Maldives. India considers the Maldives a significant friend in the region, and this situation might cause some problems in that friendship.

In short, the Maldives government took action against its own ministers for saying mean things about PM Modi, and now, it's causing some trouble for the country. Let's see how things unfold in this island nation!
