Despite being religiously motivated, the attackers also revealed three prominent (but hardly popular) political figures behind the attack. It's hard to say how politically motivated the attack actually was because for these people politics and religion are the same thing.
Three men followed Hilath into the narrow alley which lead into Hilath's apartment. While two of them held Hilath down, restraining him, one slit his throat. While they did this one of them uttered these words: "Mee Shaheem, Imran, Muttalib faraathun hadhiyaa eh."
Which literally translates to: "This is a gift from Shaheem, Imran, and Mutthalib."
Hilath assured me those were their exact words which most likely came from the person slashing his throat.
"The people they referred to are the current Minister of Islamic Affairs Mohamed Shaheem Ali Saeed, President of Adhaalath Party Imran Abdulla, and Parliament member for Jumhooree Party Ibrahim Muttalib," said Hilath.
I don't need to remind you that all of them were known religious extremists. Now they are known Islamic terrorists.
All information disclosed above is based on testimony by Hilath Rasheed and it is 100% accurate. If you need further proof of its authenticity Hilath will endorse this on his personal blog.
