Posted in Event, History by Mohamed Abdulla Shafeeg on November 20, 2012

Here are some pictures of fireworks show by the Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) to mark the Victory Day, 14th November 2012.

Maldives victory day is of supreme importance, as it is on this day that a terrorist group from Sri Lanka attacked the Maldives government. The incident took place long back on the 3rd of November in the year 1988. Since then, 3rd November each year is celebrated as the victory day festival of Maldives, a remembrance of the unwavering defence put up by the National Security Service and the steadfastness of the people, in defending our nation.
