HE Dr. Saeed Abdullah bin Mutlaq Al Ghafli, Director General of the Emirates ID Authority, said that the acts of terrorism will not sap the UAE strength and will not affect its humanitarian approach to help all people near or far. A nation that made the supreme sacrifices to defend right and justice and protect the prejudiced and the weak around the globe will not fear a gang of deviants who have lost their sense and sensibility.
The UAE is a state that has been built on humanitarian principles including respect for human beings and boost their position and improve their life conditions and help for those who need and relive the victims regardless of race, color or religion, Dr. Al Ghafli told Al Khaleej Newspaper commenting on the act of terrorism which claimed the lives of five Emiratis at Kandahar while helping and relieving the Afghanis. These principles have become daily routine for citizens and residents who followed the example of the late Sheikh Zayed who was never late when it comes to helping people and victims, he said. Therefore, these principles started to go deep through their veins following the lead of HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, who has been always there for any call for help from anyone.
Terrorism has neither religion nor country, said Dr. Al Ghafli. Such acts of terrorism can only be labeled as villainy, cowardly and treachery, he said. The culprits are evil perpetrators who want nothing but destruction and depriving man from freedom and dignity, he said. They employ all their powers and cunning to take man back to the dark ages and primitive life.
Martyrs will remain the symbols of giving and sacrifice and their blood will act like a torch for us to light the way to goodness and giving for happier, loftier and more develop human beings. This way leads also to heal the wounds of the bereaved and the victims and wash away the ignorance, extremism and delinquency in thoughts and beliefs.
Dr. Al Ghafli sent the most sincere condolences to the visionary leadership, the UAE people and the families of the martyrs on the death of those Emirati citizens who are surely in a better place now, invoking Allah to keep them at the highest levels with the prophets, the honest, the martyrs and the virtuous people as they are indeed the best companions.
