First Hindu temple in Abu Dhabi – level 3

22-02-2024 07:00

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s recent visit to the UAE aimed to bolster ties and expand India’s influence, strategically timed ahead of impending elections.

Despite historical tensions, Modi inaugurated Abu Dhabi’s first Hindu temple, symbolizing closer relations with the region. The temple is part of Modi’s Hindu-centric agenda and it signifies India’s growing presence in the UAE, home to over 3 million Indians.

The visit also saw agreements on trade corridors and investments, signaling deepening economic cooperation. Modi’s efforts align with his bid for global leadership, as he positions himself favorably for the upcoming elections, leveraging his popularity among Hindu voters.

Difficult words: impending (about to happen), agenda (a list of things to be considered or solved), leverage (to use to maximum advantage).
