    It beggars belief that these Maldivian drug dealers have been arrested during the holy month of Ramadan. Wherever Maldivians travel to these days they take their drug culture with them. Why are these junkies allowed visa free travel to India? Why are Maldivians allowed to settle in India and buy land and property?
