The ruling regime in the UAE takes shocking and controversial positions, including ignoring and even supporting the oppression of Muslims in order to serve its economic interests and aggressive plots.
The UAE recently supported India’s steps to annex Kashmir and ignored the suffering of the Muslim population of the region, even by expressing a single word of solidarity that gives them the determination to survive and to avoid ambiguity of destiny.
Surprisingly, the fact that this dossier remains open and generating wars between India and Pakistan is even more surprising, as the issue has not yet been resolved, and because of their economic difficulties, which are imperative to contemplate peace rather than conflict.
In April the UAE’s established a Hindu temple on its territory.
The news raised a lot of surprise, and reinforced with the details that follow, which indicate the size of the large building, and will be attached to the worship halls of educational centers, kindergartens, gardens, bookstores, gift shops, large dining halls and visitor centers.
Many said at the time that it goes beyond the question of religious tolerance in a country that fights political Islam and supports Arab regimes that oppress Islamists.
In August, the UAE was one of the few, or perhaps rare, countries that supported India’s decision to abolish Kashmir’s self-rule three or four days after its announcement. Its ambassador in New Delhi saw it as a step that would improve conditions. And enhance people’s confidence in the local governance of Jammu and Kashmir.
The UAE did not see any attempt to change the demography of the predominantly Muslim region, which was prohibited by Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which was abolished by the Indian authorities on 5 August last year, as it provides for autonomy and forbids Indians from permanent stability. To prevent changing its demographics.
The UAE also did not say whether India’s decision to restrict freedoms, including phone calls, Internet restrictions, television broadcasts, arrests of peaceful activists, crackdowns on demonstrations, curfews and restrictions on movement, would also lead to steps to Improve people’s social and economic conditions.
This could be surprising, as is the case of the Hindu temple, had it not been for the facts of what looks like the UAE-India alliance of interests, to stand up to the partnership between Pakistan and China, which is reinforced by the project of the port of Gwadar in Pakistan, which threatens the status of Dubai port.
No one knows whether India has relied on the deterioration of the Muslims to make this decision. Last year, US President Donald Trump offered India the greatest gift when he decided to move his country’s embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Perhaps this step was the palpation of the pulse, which India received the results, and studied the reaction of Muslims shameful, and began planning for this step.
But most likely, India did not even aspire to receive support, but honored on the eve of its move, which happened when the United Arab Emirates awarded Prime Minister Narendra Modi on August 24 last, the highest medal (Wissam Zayed), and then followed Bahrain the next day, when its King Moody was awarded the Order of Bahrain First Class, although Bahraini and Arab activists described him as “the oppressor of Muslims.”
When the Arab League or the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) did not denounce this celebration of Moodi, the man must have seen these facts combined to encourage him to continue his quest to annex the region.
