Sheikh Sul­tan bin Zayed helped keep alive UAE’s cul­tural her­itage

The National - News - - OPINION -

I write to you in ref­er­ence to your ar­ti­cle Sheikh Sul­tan bin Zayed, brother of Pres­i­dent Sheikh Khal­ifa, dies (Novem­ber 18): the demise of Sheikh Sul­tan bin Zayed is a great loss to the UAE and its peo­ple. Judg­ing by the fact that his name was trend­ing on so­cial me­dia, it is ev­i­dent that the peo­ple will miss the sec­ond son of Sheikh Zayed, the UAE’s Found­ing Fa­ther. Sheikh Sul­tan did much for the coun­try, es­pe­cially with re­gard to its rich her­itage. The Sheikh Sul­tan bin Zayed Al Nahyan Her­itage Fes­ti­val, of which he was a pa­tron, in­cluded camel and saluki races, a camel beauty con­test and tra­di­tional mar­kets that sold hand­i­crafts and hosted tra­di­tional ac­tiv­i­ties. May his soul rest in peace.
