What if Maldives sinks into the sea (with Special request for response from Muslim readers)

Reader comment on item: Syria and Iran in the news
in response to reader comment: Maldivian fantasies

Dear Dr Pipes:

Reponding to my comments on Maldives your reader Grand Infidel reminded every one that Maldives is in real danger of sinking into the sea if Global warming is for real. I wish that never happens. But Grand Infidel also informed me that Maldivian people (who are 100% Sunni Muslims) plan to immigrate to India or Australia should their country sinks into the ocean. That brings out a strange irony. Maldives is an Islamic Country where practice of other religions is banned. I also read that no non-Muslim can become a citizen of that country. I know that symmetry/golden-rule is not a Islamic virtue but still if Maldivian population has to migrate to a foreign land what moral right will they have to seek shelter in a Hindu majority secular India or a Christian majority secular Australia. Recall that Indian Hindus or Australian Christians cannot even practice their religions in Maldives. Will some Islamic scholar reading this message be kind enough to reply.

Submitting....
