India, on Monday, summoned Maldives envoy Ibrahim Shaheeb after three ministers of the island nation made derogatory, offensive, racist and xenophobic feedback towards Indians in addition to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Within the early hours of Monday, the Maldivian envoy was seen on the Ministry of Exterior Affairs in Delhi’s South Block.

Three Maldivian ministers have been suspended for derogatory remarks towards PM Modi and India, which former Deputy Speaker of the island nation Eva Abdulla labelled as “shameful and racist”.
