Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was given the Order of Zayed, the UAE’s highest civilian award, on Saturday as a mark of appreciation for his efforts to “boost bilateral ties between the two nations”.

A commemorative stamp of Mahatma Gandhi on the occasion of his 150th birthday was also released in the presence of government officials and Indian businesspersons.

On his first visit to the UAE after winning the elections, Modi met Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces, at the Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi.

In April, the UAE announced it would be conferring the award on the Indian prime minister. “We have historical and comprehensive strategic ties with India, reinforced by the pivotal role of my dear friend, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who gave these relations a big boost,” the crown prince had tweeted.

The award has earlier been bestowed on several world leaders, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, Queen Elizabeth II and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

    What a desaster for Muslims, particularly in middle east. Asian Hitler Modi of India doesn’t deserve high civilian award of UAE. Almighty Allah bless on entire Muslims of the world. AMEEN.
