Former Minister Ahmed Mahloof has emerged as a vocal voice expressing apprehension regarding the escalating #BoycottMaldives trend. His words underscore the potential far-reaching consequences, emphasizing the critical interconnectedness of India and the Maldives. "I am increasingly concerned about the trend of making sensitive remarks about our closest neighbor," he stated, acknowledging the sensitivity and importance of maintaining harmonious ties.
