By Dr. S.Chandrasekharan.
It is very unfortunate that almost all the political parties except the MDP are using religion as a political tool to keep former president Nasheed from winning the presidential elections this September. Their main thrust in the election campaign is that all the parties are out to save Islam from Nasheed and his MDP!
