Abu Dhabi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday urged top UAE businesses to invest in India, saying the country provides a $1 trillion potential.



Addressing an investors meet in Masdar City, a zero carbon city, Modi also promised to erase the deficit of prime ministerial interactions of the past 34 years. Indira Gandhi was the last prime minister to visit in 1981.

He said that though there are 700 flights between India and the UAE but it took 34 years for an Indian prime minister to visit, adding: “I promise this will not happen again.”

He said in India’s agriculture sector, “we need cold storage network and warehousing network where UAE businesses have an advantage”.

“Infrastructure development and real estate offer tremendous opportunities for UAE businesses in India,” he added.

Modi said he was told about some problems being faced by UAE businesspersons and added: “I want to assure we are solving these problems.”

He said he will send the commerce minister to try and find solutions to the problems being faced by some UAE investors.

He said that “UAE’s power and India’s potential can make the dream of an Asian Century a reality”.

“It is now commonly believed that India is one of the fastest growing economies. There are several opportunities of development in India. I feel India is a land of many opportunities. The 125 crore people of India are not a market but they are a source of great strength,” he said.

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
