The Bamiyan Buddha bombings truly do echo in this latest attack. Mohamed Nasheed has been quoted as saying "If I leave the whole country will go to the dogs...I'm afraid I can't do that." Well, the dogs are out. Nasheed is truly a very kind and sensible man. One of my favourite journalists, Mark Lynas, is his environmental advisor. Nasheed has been at the forefront of climate change issues. He is truly a man to be respected if one cares about biodiversity and conservation. This is not only an attack on buddhism, but also a slap in the face of the democracy that Nasheed helped build so gracefully in his country.
