Back Maldives Foreign Minister Moosa Zameer gets brutally trolled over India visit, ‘Where's your apology?

Maldivian Foreign Minister Moosa Zameer’s official visit to India has sparked mixed reactions, especially on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter), as he seeks to strengthen ties and cooperation between the two nations.

Before he departed for India, Minister Zameer took to Twitter to express his anticipation for the meeting with his Indian counterpart, Minister of External Affairs S Jaishankar. In his tweet, he emphasized the aim of discussing the “deepening and enhancing cooperation" between India and Maldives for the “mutual benefit" of their people.

Upon his arrival in New Delhi, Minister Zameer shared his excitement about his first bilateral official visit to India and his eagerness for productive discussions, strengthening ties, and experiencing India's vibrant culture.

However, Minister Zameer’s tweets received criticism from some Indian users on X. Many expressed scepticism about the idea of mutual benefit, with one user questioning, “What mutual benefit?" and another suggested, “One correction sir: it’s the unilateral benefit of Maldives’s people."

Some users demanded an apology from the Maldivian foreign minister, highlighting past issues and expressing dissatisfaction with the current state of relations. “I hope the first thing you’ll do is apologize on behalf of your government and president," posted one user, while another said, “Indians are done with you and your leadership who destroyed the age-long relationship." Some users directly asked for an apology, questioning, “Where's your apology?"

The sentiments expressed by some Indian users indicate lingering tensions and concerns regarding the relationship between the two countries. Some users referenced past political campaigns in the Maldives against Indian influence, questioning the sincerity of the current call for deeper cooperation. One user posted, “Are you serious? After getting elected on an India Out campaign, do you now want deeper cooperation? Give me one good reason why India should respond positively."

Overall, Minister Zameer’s visit to India has brought both hopes for improved relations and scepticism among some segments of the Indian population, highlighting the complexities and challenges in bilateral diplomacy between the two nations.
