UAE’s tolerance is emulative: Rahul

Dubai: Rahul Gandhi, President of India’s Congress Party, commended UAE leaders’ humility and tolerance that have helped them transform the country into the most modern nation where people of different religions and from different regions of the world live with great harmony.

“To build a great nation needs a leader with great vision, humility and tolerance. I found these qualities in Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum,” said Rahul Gandhi.

Addressing a mammoth crowd of over 30,000 Indians at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Friday, Gandhi was all praise for President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan for their exemplary leadership.

“Before coming to this meeting I met the Ruler of Dubai, someone who has served Dubai for 50 years, spent his life in the service of the nation. What I experienced the most was his humility. Whatever has been achieved by Dubai has been achieved with his vision, but I found no arrogance in him,” said Gandhi, who is currently on his maiden visit to the UAE.

“Great nations are built with that type of humility. A leader who listens to not only to people from his country, but also listens to millions of others who come from other countries to help build this country,” he said.

Gandhi said that it is the central value of humility and tolerance that bring together people of UAE and India. Tolerance for different ideas, different religions, different communities and different ways of doing things.

“Here you are commemorating The Year of Tolerance. I am sad to say that back home (in India) it is 4-1/2 years of intolerance,” he said, giving a hint of current socio-political scenario in India.
