  1. There was once the age of the Golden Sparrow. Man, nature and
    animals lived in peace and harmony. There was truth and non-violence, stillness
    and well-being. Unity was the hallmark of the Indic region – even the lion and
    cow, they say, drank from the same pond. It was a glorious era when there was
    every kind of joy and bliss.

    The ideal society with ideal governance was the vision of leaders
    like Adulrahman Ahmed Ali, Moh’d Ibrahim Egal, and Dahir Riyaale Kahin. While Somaliland
    has come a long way in material development since the days of Independence,
    still, there are many big challenges facing the country. Divine bliss and happiness
    can only be established through a righteous value system. Development or governance
    without spiritual insight cannot lead to lasting prosperity. Kulmiye, as many people content or assert, is a party of divide and rule along with the dance of dirty tribal politics.
