October 12, 2016: The first Hindu temple of Abu Dhabi will be ready by the end of 2017. The temple is being constructed on the property donated by the government of Muslim Abu Dhabi, the capital of United Arab Emirates, said a business working on the project on Tuesday.

According to the Reuters report, the temple will come up on 20,000 square meters of land at Al Wathba. BR Shetty, Head of the Temple Coordination Committee said,” Al Wathba is just 30 minutes away from Abu Dhabi city. It will be close to the highway on Abu-Dhabi-Al road. The temple will be ready within one year. The temple will have idols of Lord Krishna, Maheshwara, Ayyappa and more. It will have a good Vrindavan and a waterfront.”

Last year, during Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit, UAE government announced its decision to allocate land for first Hindu temple of Abu Dhabi.

The meeting with Abu Dhabi’s crown prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum was seen as an important step in escalating trade dealing between the two countries and the decision to construct a Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi. This was to strengthen the strategic vision of the two nations.

Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince will be the chief guest at India’s annual Republic Day parade next year, mentioned Reuters.

Indians constitute for about one-third of the population of UAE, which exceeds the local Emirati population. But the condition of the Indians community is dismal in the UAE.

According to the press agency, almost 80% of the Indians are laborers who are bonded to Kafala (the contract system) which seizes all their human rights. The unfair and abusive conditions of the Indians were completely ignored during the Modi’s visit.

Check out NewsGram for latest international news updates.

Building a temple is fine but wouldn’t it have been better if Modi’s visit has resulted in some changes in the Kafala that would have bought the poor laborers some happiness. But unfortunately, the people, who really needed help in surviving at UAE, were sweating at a construction site or were not even allowed inside the stadium.
