The ‘Boycott Maldives’ trend has affected the Maldives’ tourism industry, which heavily relies on Indian tourists. It started after some ministers made racist remarks about India following PM Modi’s post on his visit to the Lakshadweep islands. The remarks outraged Indian netizens, leading to cancellations of trips and calls to boycott the Maldives. The government suspended three ministers in response, but the damage may already be done. The boycott would have a significant impact on the Maldives’ economy, with thousands of flight and hotel bookings already cancelled.
