Eighteen non-Muslim places of worship across Abu Dhabi will be granted licences at a special event scheduled for next week.
Under the slogan ‘A Call for harmony’, the Department of Community Development is organising a ceremony to license 18 existing places of worship in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Licensing these places of worship will contribute to boosting Abu Dhabi’s regional and global standing, as it advocates peace, tolerance and coexistence.
This ceremony is a new achievement that can be added to the department’s list of notable accomplishments achieved in pursuit of its vision to ensure “a decent life for all” by working hand in hand with partners from different sectors.
The ceremony will include a number of events highlighting religious, cultural and demographic diversity in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi while highlighting Abu Dhabi’s societal integration and coexistence that has been one of the Emirate’s distinguishing attributes throughout history.
