    The UAE is leading the way in creating tolerance, hope and understanding among people of the world, inspired by its own success in building the happiest, most successfull and religiously harmonised nation in the world, thanks to Sheik Zayed, a world leader and icon.

    I wish the Conference all the success and would love to be a participant to make my own contributions, however, small. I have also been inspired by Nelson Rolihlshla Madiba Mandela, my own leader and world icon.
