First Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi – level 1

22-02-2024 07:00

India’s Prime Minister Modi goes to the UAE for a visit. It happens before India’s elections.

Modi opens a new Hindu temple in the UAE. It is important because it shows India’s strong connection with the UAE. The temple is big. Over 2 million Indians live in the UAE. Modi knows that he needs Hindus in the elections.

Modi also makes deals with the UAE to do a lot of business together. This visit helps Modi look good before the elections because many Indians like him and his party.

Difficult words: elections (when people vote to choose their leaders), temple (a building where people talk to a god), party (a group of people who have the same political ideas).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What was the main purpose of Modi's visit to the UAE and how does it benefit him in the upcoming elections?
