History of Maldives
The Maldives has a history that goes back hundreds of years. In fact, although they were initially irreligious, they later chose Buddhism. However, after Abul Barakat Al-Bar Bari came to this country for commercial purposes and gathered people around him and communicated Islam, people chose Muslims in a short time. After hundreds of years of exploitation by Portugal and the Dutch, 75 years of British exploitation continued, and then they gained their independence in 1965.
