Maldivian Cluster – Profile
  • The Maldives is one of the world's poorest developing countries. It is threatened by global warming because of its very low elevation. The main natural resources are fisheries and a marine environment conducive to tourism.
  • Maldivians have strong feelings towards the Maldivian language, which has been central to Maldivian identity. Unlike the other languages of South India, it is an Indo-European language. English is a second language and is widely used in commerce and in many government schools.
  • The population consists of a mix of people who trace their descent from Sri Lanka, India, Arab countries, and Africa. Because of religious and linguistic homogeneity, there is stability and unity.
  • Virtually all Maldivians are Sunni Muslims. Islam is the country's state religion. Daily life is regulated according to the tenets of Islam and government regulations too are based on Islamic law. The law of the country prohibits the practice of any other religion by the country's citizens. However, the widespread belief in jinns, or evil spirits, has resulted in a blending of Islam with traditional island beliefs into a magico-religious system known as fandita.
